Sometimes, general trends for certain types of lawsuits come and go. However, in the world of personal injury, there are several big areas that tend to make up the bulk of personal injury claims. Can you guess what they are?
If you guessed car and truck accidents, you’d be right! Many personal injury claims are made following a collision between cars, trucks, SUVs, and/or tractor-trailers. To throw a broader net, these car accidents can also include areas like bike/car collisions and motorcycle accidents. Branching off of that area, many personal injury claims are made after cars and other vehicles collide with pedestrians. Unfortunately, many of these accidents tend to involve children.
Other common personal injury lawsuits include accidents that result after improper ATV use, such as four-wheelers or snowmobiles. In our area of the country, there are many legal claims that result after dog bite attacks and injuries, as well as slipping and falling to improper maintenance of outside structures such as sidewalks, parking lots, and driveways.
