What Are Personal Injuries?
Personal injury claims can occur when someone is physically or emotionally injured through the carelessness, negligence, recklessness or intentional actions of another. Under the law, the injured party may be entitled to compensation for damages including lost wages, future pay, medical bills, and pain and suffering as a result of an accident. These injuries can occur from a variety of situations including:
- Bicycle accidents
- Bus or train accidents (including SEPTA and NJ TRANSIT)
- Car accidents
- Construction accidents
- Defective highways
- Defective products
- Dog Bites
- Improper maintenance of properties (including defective sidewalks and rental properties in disrepair).
- Trucking accidents
- Medical Malpractice
- Motorcycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
- Slip and falls/premises liability
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Trucking accidents
- Workplace accidents
- Wrongful death
Types of Personal Injury Claims
Personal injuries claims fall within three main categories: negligence, intentional torts and strict liability.
Carelessness or recklessness can result in significant personal injuries. Negligence can be committed by individuals, businesses or government entities. A personal injury claim based on negligence does not require an actual intent to do harm to another. Even if your own actions contributed to your injuries, you still may be entitled to compensation for your negligence claim.
Some of the most severe physical injuries are caused by the intentional actions of others. Some of the most common intentional torts are assault, battery, theft, fraud, invasion of privacy and intentional infliction of emotional distress. At DiTomaso Law, our experienced Cherry Hill, NJ tort attorneys aggressively fight for punitive damages in all intentional tort cases.
Other personal injury claims are based on the legal theory of strict liability. When an individual or business engages in certain inherently dangerous activities or uses inherently dangerous products, strict liability may be imposed for any resulting personal injuries. Our experienced Cherry Hill, NJ dog bite attorneys have successfully handled numerous strict liability dog bite cases.
