Let’s take a look at some of the most common types of personal injury cases that occur in the United States.

Car Accidents

Car accidents remain the most common type of personal injury case. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 4 million motor vehicle accidents occur in the United States each year. As a result of these accidents, millions of people suffer personal injuries. The most common types of car accident injuries include whiplash, broken bones, head, neck and shoulder injuries, as well as internal damage.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents are also among the most common types of personal injury cases. These are scenarios in which a person slips, trips, or otherwise falls due to a hazardous condition on someone else’s property. Property owners can be held liable for damages if they fail to properly warn visitors of potential hazards or fail to take reasonable steps to prevent hazards from occurring.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is another major type of personal injury case. This type of case arises when a healthcare provider fails to provide care that meets the accepted standard of care within the medical community. Medical malpractice cases are notoriously difficult to prove, as they require expert witnesses and evidence of negligence or recklessness.

Product Liability

Product liability cases involve any type of harm that results from the use of a defective product. This type of case holds companies liable for any harm that their products cause to consumers. In order for a product liability case to be successful, the plaintiff must prove that the product was defective and that the defect was the proximate cause of their injuries.
