Types of Personal Injury Cases most Attorneys Accept
Have you been the victim of an accident recently? Are you wondering if you have the ability to submit a personal injury case? Calling the personal injury attorneys at Robinson, Seiler & Anderson in Provo can help you in determining what to do about your situation. Listed below are the most common personal injury cases most attorneys will accept.
Car Accident Cases
If you find yourself to be a victim of a car accident you may have the right to take the careless driver who caused the accident to court. A careless driver can (usually) be held financially and responsible for injuries stemming from a car accident. Make sure you gather all of the evidence and information you may need to help your case. These include pictures of the accident, doctor’s evaluations, names, insurance information, and witnesses willing to submit a testimony.
Medical malpractice claims can arise when a doctor or other health care professional fails to provide competent and reasonably skilled care, and a patient is injured as a result. These cases are often complex and take a lot of time and effort of both your part and the attorneys. Having the experienced personal injury attorneys at Robinson, Seiler & Anderson in Provo can only help you in a situation like this.
Slip and Fall Cases
These cases are common when it comes to personal injury cases. Property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises reasonably safe and free of hazards, so that people who are on the property do not become injured. Of course, not all injuries that occur on the property will lead to liability. The evidence collected for the case and state law will have a large part in any slip and fall case.
In most cases, the owners of a dog are financially responsible for bites and other injuries caused by the dog. The exact laws on owner responsibility do vary from state to state, though. In some cases, strict liability rules exist and the dog owner is going to be liable for dog bite damages even if the dog has never shown any aggression or propensity to bite in the past. In other states they have what is known as the “one bite rule” in which owners only become responsible for personal injury damages once there is a reason for those owners to know their dog is aggressive or prone to biting. Your attorney can inform you of all the ins and outs of a dog bite injury case according to your state’s laws.
