The 5 Most Common Types of Personal Injury Cases

At Feldman Legal Group, we believe in fighting for the injured. We work in Personal Injury cases, where one person has suffered at the hands of another, whether intentionally or not. We believe in justice for the injured, and that they are given the time and resources they need in order to fully recover from their injury and return to normal life as much as possible.

“Personal Injury” is the legal term for the type of injuries we work with, but what does that really mean? What all does it encompass? To demystify the term, here are the current 5 most common types of Personal Injury cases:

Vehicle Accidents

Vehicle accidents, including those with cars, trucks, motorcycles, and bicycles, are the most common kind of Personal Injury case. In fact, there are over six million vehicle accidents in the United States every year. Throw in drunk driving, cell phone use, vehicle defects, and pedestrians, and the severity of the accidents just keep getting worse.

Workplace Accidents

In 2014, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported over three million non-fatal workplace injuries and five thousand fatal ones had happened in the past year. The vast majority of these injuries were from the stress of repeated motion, such as continually picking up heavy boxes or typing too much.

Construction Accidents

Construction sites are an unfortunate hotbed for injuries. Everything from defective equipment, sinister falls, and improper training could lead to serious injury for construction workers. Skilled workers in such a dangerous and essential profession should be given all the support they need to recover from a work-related injury.

Product Liability Accidents

Product Liability Accidents cover any injuries sustained from a physical product that was incorrectly manufactured. Keep in mind that Product Liability covers everything from a car and a children’s toy to prescription medication and protective gear. Product Liability Accidents can sometimes even result in mass recalls.

Wrongful Death Accidents

Any Personal Injury case that results in death is considered a Wrongful Death Accident. When someone dies from the negligence of another, their surviving loved ones may be entitled to compensation for funeral expenses, unpaid bills, and personal loss of wages and trauma.
