When people are irresponsible, there are countless potential pathways for bodily harm to manifest.
Sadly, when people don’t take adequate precautions, their actions (or inactions) can have serious repercussions for others.
Any time a client suffers injuries in a car wreck involving a pedestrian, truck accident, motorcycle accident, or bicycle accident, the attorney knows their world has been turned upside down.
Disaster victims shouldn’t have to pay for their own medical care, lost wages, and other costs associated with recovery on their own. This means assistance is easily accessible.
Explanations Of Why People Get Hurt
Some patients require long-term or perhaps permanent medical care as a result of unforeseen and unpreventable personal traumas such as internal haemorrhage and organ damage.
When it comes to personal injury lawsuits in San Jose County, the following are the most common causes:
- Absent-Minded Driving Accidents
A total of six million car accidents are reported annually in the United States. More than three million people have been hurt in these accidents, and an estimated two million of those injuries have been permanent.
- Deaths And Injuries Caused By Motorcycles
More than 90,000 motorcycle accidents take place annually in the state despite the fact that there are more than 840,000 motorcycles on the road.
The Federal Accounting Office estimates that motorcycle accidents cost the United States $16 billion annually in healthcare costs and missed output.
- The Intentional Injuring Or Killing Of A Pedestrian
Due to the pedestrian’s lack of protection, the impact of a collision with a 2 passenger car or SUV usually results in serious physical injury.
About 6,300 people were killed on foot in the United States in 2016. As per the most up-to-date information, this equates to one death every 88 minutes.
- Commuter Truck Crashes
According to the Federal Highway Administration, semi-trucks are responsible for an estimated 10,000 annual injuries and hundreds of annual deaths on America’s highways and byways.
Everyone on the road is at danger when drivers are disinterested, driving excessively quickly, or under the influence of drugs or alcohol. It’s possible that these drivers would get catastrophic injuries and require ongoing medical treatment if they were behind the wheel of a heavy truck attempting to pull 80,000 pounds.
- Injuries Sustained At Work
Injuries resulting from premises liability accidents, such as dog attacks or slip and falls, can happen anywhere, from private homes to businesses to public spaces.
Animal abusers have a significant impact on their pets’ behaviour and must take responsibility for the harm they do. Any visitor let onto the property runs the risk of being attacked by the dog of the owner if the gate or entry is left open. If the dog is abandoned, it could sustain life-threatening injuries and diseases.
Legal action may be taken against a landowner, whether they are individuals who live on the premises themselves, business operators, or government organisations, for failing to give a reasonable effort to maintain a traveller environment, including negligent as well as inadequate security precautions and the absence of appropriate premises maintenance.
