Catastrophic injuries are sudden, disastrous events that cause severe damage and suffering to an individual. There are six types of catastrophic injuries: burn injuries, loss of limbs, organ damage, traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries, and paralysis.
Medical malpractice is a type of negligence, defined as “improper, unskilled, or negligent treatment of a patient by a physician, dentist, nurse, pharmacist, or other healthcare professional.” A case of medical malpractice must prove that the doctor owed the patient a duty of care, that the physician failed to perform that duty, that the patient suffered an injury that can be compensated, and that the injury was caused by the physician’s failure to perform the duty.

Property owners have a responsibility to ensure their properties are reasonably safe. Liability laws apply to property owners, property managers, and landlords. If you’ve been injured on someone’s property, it may be a result of unsafe conditions. Conditions including broken or cracked sidewalks, poor lighting, or cluttered stairways are all potential sources of premises liability claims.
Product liability is defined as “the responsibility of a manufacturer or vendor of goods to compensate for injury caused by defective merchandise that it has provided for sale.” The vendor of a product has the duty to make sure that the goods offered for sale are of acceptable quality at the time of the sale.
Slip and Fall Accidents
Although you might not expect it, some of the most serious injuries are the result of falls, trips, and slips. These seemingly minor incidents have the potential to be serious, even fatal. Innocent victims may face medical bills, loss of income, disability, and pain and suffering as a result of these accidents.
Tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles have the potential to cause catastrophic injury and property damage in the event of an accident. Due to the increased weight and size of these vehicles, truck crashes are some of the worst accidents on the road.
From a legal perspective, truck crashes are complicated because truckers are usually professional drivers employed by trucking companies that seek to limit their liability in the case of an accident.
Wrongful death claims occur when a person has lost a loved one due to the negligence of some responsible party. One example would be when a nursing home fails to take adequate care of one of their patients, leading to the person’s death.
