Personal Injury Lawyer Charleston | Most Common Personal Injury Lawsuits 

Personal Injury Lawyer Charleston | Personal injury lawsuits cover a broad range of cases from negligence and moderate injuries to catastrophic injuries and even death. Some of the most common situations a personal injury lawyer will cover include:

Slip and Falls- You can slip and fall anywhere there is wet flooring, including the grocery store or your neighbor’s pool. Businesses are required to mark areas of wet flooring and clean up hazards quickly. When they fail to do this, and you fall and are injured, you may be entitled to compensation. 

Product Defects- When defective products malfunction, they can cause injuries. Some companies may be liable for these injuries if the injury causes unreasonable harm due to the company failing to test the product or find the flaws that pose dangers. 

Auto Accidents- Motorcycle and car accidents are one of the most common types of injuries a personal injury lawyer can help you with. Pedestrians and cyclists struck by cars, motorcycles, commercial vehicles can be compensated under personal injury laws. 

Medical Malpractice- Negligence such as surgical or prescription errors, medication or anesthesia overdose, delayed diagnosis of terminal illness, birth injuries and other doctor errors can result in a medical malpractice case that a personal injury lawyer can help you with. 

Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect- Nearly two million people are living in nursing homes and assisted living centers in the United States, and nursing home abuse is becoming all too common. If someone you love has suffered from abuse or neglect in a nursing home, a personal injury lawyer can help them receive the compensation they deserve. 

Dog Bites- Getting bit by a dog is an injury taken seriously by the courts, and the owner of the dog is nearly always held financially responsible for the injuries inflicted. 

Assault and Battery- If you are attacked by another person or someone intentionally harms you, a personal injury lawyer can assist you in determining your right to compensation.
