What Is a Personal Injury Claim?
A personal injury claim is an insurance claim that encompasses accidents where someone is injured, and the injured individual has the right to file for compensation from another party because that party was negligent. There are many kinds of personal injury cases, including:
People injured in a car accident may face a long road to recovery and an inability or reduced ability to work. When the car accident results from another driver’s negligence, the victim may be able to file a personal injury claim to obtain monetary compensation to cover those financial losses incurred because of the accident.
Common examples of drive negligence are:
- Drunk driving
- Not using a turn signal
- Distracted driving
- Not stopping at a stop sign
All drivers and others on the road are legally required to behave in a reasonable manner to prevent harming others on the road; when they don’t follow traffic laws and regulations, they are not doing their legal duty to prevent harm and can be held legally responsible for their actions.
Trucks are considerably larger and heavier than passenger vehicles, meaning that truck accidents can be especially devastating for those inside a passenger vehicle. People inside a passenger vehicle that collides with a truck are often left with catastrophic or even fatal injuries. Because of this, truck accident claims can be more complex than a typical car accident claim. In addition to the type of injuries sustained during a truck accident, one or more parties may be liable for a truck accident. In a truck accident, the following parties may be liable for damages:
- The truck driver
- The trucking company
- The truck parts manufacturer
- The party in charge of loading the truck
Investigating the accident, the truck driver, the trucking company, and all other parties involved is vital to ensuring that all parties responsible for the accident are held liable. After a truck accident, victims benefit from contacting an attorney as soon as possible because they can ensure that a thorough investigation is done and that the correct party is held responsible.
Motorcycle riders get a bad rap for being irresponsible and reckless, but the truth is that most of the time a motorcycle accident is caused by a negligent driver who dismisses or fails to see the motorcyclists on the road. At Tabbaa Law, we are familiar with all the negative biases that are used against motorcyclists and know how to fight back against them to help ensure our clients obtain fair and maximum compensation.
We know that when motorcycle accidents occur, riders are often the most vulnerable because they lack the protection of an enclosed vehicle but are often dismissed because of negative biases. Our firm is committed to protecting your rights and ensuring you get the compensation you deserve to help you deal with the financial losses accumulated because of the accident.
Cyclists are incredibly vulnerable when they’re involved in accidents with motor vehicles or even with pedestrians. Wearing their protective gear can be extremely helpful and life saving, but even then other areas of their body may be exposed. A cyclist involved in an accident can sustain severe and life-threatening injuries.
Tabbaa Law understands how serious bike accidents are and the effect they can have on a victim’s life—this is why we are dedicated to help injured cyclists obtain the compensation they deserve. If someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior is the reason they’ve suffered, they deserve to have their financial losses compensated. Our personal injury lawyer will fight for your right to fair compensation.
Uber and Lyft Accidents
Rideshare services like Lyft and Uber have increased in popularity in the past few years. They’re convenient and helpful, but as they increase in demand, so do the number of accidents. However, unlike a typical car accident, liability can be less straightforward and more complicated. Liable parties can be:
- The Uber/Lyft driver
- Another driver
- Car manufacturers
Multiple factors are exclaimed when determining liability so that you can obtain maximum compensation. At Tabba Law, we know that an Uber/Lyft accident is not your typical accident and have the experience and resources necessary to ensure you have a strong claim being pursued through the correct channels.
Premises Liability Accidents
Property owners (public and private) are legally obligated to maintain their premises safe. Their premises must be reasonably safe, ensuring that they provide a proper warning if there is any potential hazard on the property. When there are hazards on their property that aren’t closed off or there aren’t warnings of their existence, a property owner may be liable for any harm that comes to visitors. Common accidents that occur to property negligence include:
- Dog bites
- Slip-and-fall accidents
- Parking lot accidents
A property that isn’t adequately maintained poses a risk to anyone who steps in; that’s why property owners are held to a reasonable degree of duty of care.
Most of the accidents listed above have the risk of ending in fatalities. When someone dies because of another person’s or entity’s negligence, the surviving family may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death lawsuits can compensate families to help cover funeral and burial costs. They may also recover the deceased’s lost wages and possibly receive compensation for loss of companionship.
