When do you need a personal injury lawyer?

Attorney Blog

There are several types of personal injury cases. Whatever the injury you suffer, you have a right to sue the person at fault through a lawyer.

Below are the common types of personal injury cases

  1. Motor vehicle accident

Every year millions of people get injured through motor vehicle accidents. For instance, in 2009, more than two million people were injured while another 33,000 were killed through the various car, truck, and motorcycle accidents.

If you are injured either through a vehicle, motorcycle, or biker accident, you may be entitled to monetary compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney Chicago can help you file the compensation in a court.

  1. Medical malpractice

Personal injuries can also be caused by the negligence of the hospital, doctors, nurses, or any other medical professional. An example of medical malpractice may include improper treatment, misdiagnosis, medication mistakes, surgical errors among others.

You have a right to hire a personal injury lawyer Chicago and sue the hospital or medical practitioner responsible for the injury.

  1. Workplace injury

If a person is injured while working, they can sue the employer in a court of law. Alternatively, the injured employee and the employer can decide to settle the matter out of court.

  1. Wrongful death

If your loved one has been killed due to the negligence or carelessness of a driver or doctor, you can hire a lawyer and seek compensation.
