COMMON TYPES OF GAINESVILLE PERSONAL INJURY ACCIDENTS
At Smith Hulsey Law, we focus on representing clients in personal injury lawsuits. In order to succeed in a personal injury lawsuit, the injured party must prove that another person or company’s negligence, recklessness, or intentional actions caused their injuries. For example, a person who suffered injuries in a car accident can bring a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent driver who caused the accident. Someone who has been injured due to overexertion may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim.
A personal injury is any mental or physical injury that results from another person’s harmful act. Personal injuries can cause moderate to severe injuries, or even death. After a car accident, the full extent of one’s injuries might not be apparent right after the accident. During the shock of the accident, an injured person might not realize the full extent of his or her injuries. Neck and back injuries often become worse over a period of two to three weeks. Accident victims should speak to an attorney before giving any statements to insurance companies. If a victim states that he or she does not have any injuries the day after the accident, the insurance company may deny the claim for compensation.
Accidents can cause a wide variety of bodily injuries, ranging from mild to severe. Our attorneys frequently represent clients who have suffered personal injuries in various types of accidents.
