Suffering an injury can cause an incredible amount of stress. Whether you’re recovering from a motor vehicle accident or an on-the-job mishap, you’re likely to be feeling a range of difficult emotions, including anger, frustration, and sadness. Hospital bills and recovery time are enough to deal with—if you’re also struggling with the knowledge that your injury was the result of negligence, then you may be even more upset.
In this blog post, we will examine the injuries that are often a result of negligence. If you think that your injuries fall into this category, then you should contact an attorney to learn more about your options.
- Fractures. Bone fractures are common enough occurrences that we sometimes don’t realize that they could be the result of negligence. Did you walk through a store and slip on a large, unmarked spot of water? Was your broken arm caused by an auto accident in which you weren’t at fault? Make sure you consider exactly how and when you fractured a bone––it’s possible that the accident was caused by someone else’s negligent behavior.
- Back Injuries. Back injuries can be debilitating. If your injury is to the spinal cord, then it may severely impair your mobility and even your ability to breathe. Other types of back injuries can also cause chronic pain, resulting in loss of work. Since many back injuries happen through truck accidents, auto accidents, or on the job, your injury could be caused by negligence by a driver, business owner, or equipment manufacturer.
- Concussion. Like back injuries and fractures, concussions often occur in motor vehicle accidents. The driver may be considered negligent, especially if it’s a drunk driving accident.
- Dog bites. Another potentially devastating personal injury is a dog bite. Although it depends on the incident, the dog’s owner may be considered negligent. Contact an attorney for advice on your specific situation.
