    Personal Injury Lawyer

    If you have gotten hurt due to any kind of personal injury, whether it’s due to a car accident or fall, you may be eligible to receive compensation. There are many accident scenarios that personal injury lawyers typically assist clients with. If you have been injured because of an accident that you did not cause, you should find out what your legal options are. You may be entitled to financial compensation that can cover your losses, which can greatly ease your burden. Here are some of the many accident scenarios that a lawyer can assist you with.

    Slip and Fall

    You are walking along a sidewalk and suddenly lunge forward and fall, causing your elbow or head to hit the pavement. If the sidewalk had a large crack causing it to be uneven, the city may be responsible for not fixing the sidewalk. Slip and fall scenarios like these make up a significant portion of many personal injury cases. 

    Car Accident

    Auto accidents are all too common. Each day many innocent victims sustain mild to severe injuries because of negligent drivers who disregard others safety. As a trusted personal injury lawyer like one at Ward & Ward Law Firm can explain, a large portion of personal injury victims get hurt because they have been involved in a car accident. 

    Dog Bite 

    Victims of dog attacks can suffer serious injuries and even long-term complications such as permanent disfigurement. Dog owners who fail to secure their dogs can be held liable if their pet injures a person or animal, since dogs are legally considered property. If you have been bit by a dog, you could recover compensation for your losses. 

    Premises Liability 

    If you are staying at a hotel and are exposed to toxic fumes due to hazardous chemicals, you may be able to file a premises liability claim. These cases can be filed if a victim suffers an illness or injury because of the property owner’s failure to fix an issue that they were aware of, such as chemical leaks or broken fences. 

    If you are a personal injury victim and are not sure if you have a valid case, go to a qualified lawyer to see whether or not you can recover compensation. A trusted and competent personal injury lawyer like one from Ward & Ward Law Firm can guide you through every step of your case. Schedule a risk-free consultation now before it’s too late to file a claim.
