What Kinds of Cases Do Personal Injury Attorneys Handle?

     Most people associate personal injury cases with car accidents.  Although these situations may account for a large number of personal injury cases, they are certainly not the only type of grievance handled by personal injury lawyers. 

     While some may specialize in a certain type of injury, Personal injury attorneys may take cases in all areas of tort law. A tort is any civil wrong or wrongful act, whether intentional or accidental, from which injury occurs to another.  Thus, the personal injury practice area encompasses many different kinds of injuries.  These can include, but are not limited to:

  • Dog and other animal bites
  • Slip and falls
  • Work related injuries
  • Injuries from faulty products
  • Medical Malpractice
  • Assault
  • Battery
  • Sports injuries
  • Wrongful Death
  • Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress
  • Loss of Consortium or Companionship 

     Tort claims also include injuries which occur from defamation, bad faith breach of contract, trespassing, conversion and fraud.

     If you have suffered from any of these injuries, you may want to contact an experienced personal injury attorney to help you understand your rights and get you the compensation you deserve.
