Have you encountered one of these common personal injury causes?

If you have recently sustained a personal injury and you are now dealing with the financial costs of recovery, you are not alone. Every year, medical bills for various personal injuries burden the financial stability of many households.

Nonetheless, many people do not consider filing a lawsuit to help recover the costs, despite the financial benefits of doing so. However, there is no reason you need to continue suffering. Seeking legal guidance can help you figure out what options you may have if you have encountered one of these common personal injury causes.

Vehicle accidents

In 2020, more than 38,000 people died in motor vehicle crashes across the United States. The U.S. Department of Transportation estimates that the annual economic cost is around $242 billion. With these numbers in mind, it is easy to understand why this is one of the most frequent incidents that lead to lawsuits.

Product liability

Did you use or operate a defective product that led to your injury? These cases fall under product liability claims. Some examples of potentially dangerous products that can lead to a legal claim include:

  • Drugs
  • Food
  • Consumer products
  • Vehicle parts
  • Medical devices
  • Toxic materials and chemicals

Workplace accidents

Given how much time individuals spend at work, it makes sense that this is another common environment for sustaining an injury due to an accident. This is especially true for individuals who work in a factory or other kind of manufacturing organization.

If you have encountered one of these personal injury causes, you should not delay reaching out for help. Depending on your situation, you may have more options than you realize.
