The Most Common Personal Injury Claims

A personal injury claim can include a variety of accident cases. For example, if you are attacked by another person when walking on campus and you are seriously injured, you can file a personal injury lawsuit against that individual in addition to whatever criminal charges that person may face. As to be expected, some types of personal injury claims are more prevalent than others. The following is a list of the most common personal injury claims.

Car Crashes

Car crashes are one of the top accidents that lead to a personal injury case. Depending on where your vehicle was struck, you could suffer severe or long-term injuries. For example, if you were rear-ended with a great deal of force, you can hit your head on the steering wheel or another hard surface and suffer a head injury like a concussion or even a traumatic brain injury.

Car accidents can be the result of various circumstances from speeding to a reckless motorist texting while driving. If a negligent driver injured you, you could hold them liable for your injuries.

Slip and Falls

The most common type of personal injury claim is a slip and fall. A slip and fall is when an individual trips over a hazardous condition on another person’s property that should have been timely corrected once the property owner was aware of the hazard. Unfortunately, some property owners will neglect to repair defects on their property or neglect to even warn visitors of the dangerous defect.

Slip and falls can cause a person to sustain a variety of injuries. For example, if a person trips while walking down a flight of steps because a handrailing was unstable, they could suffer a severe back injury.

Dog Bites

Several residents of Philadelphia like to walk their dogs around the beautiful campus of Drexel University. However, some dog owners should avoid the possibility of having their dog interact with other people or other dogs if they are not properly trained.

If a dog is not adequately trained and they attack another person, that person could suffer a variety of injuries:

  • Broken bones
  • Deep puncture wounds and lacerations
  • Infections that could develop after a dog bite

This is not an exhaustive list of all the common types of personal injury cases. There are several other types of personal injury cases that the Reiff Law Firm can help you litigate.

Proving Your Injury Case

To prevail in a personal injury lawsuit, you must show that the defendant’s negligence was the cause of your injury. Specifically, there are multiple elements that must all be proven before you can receive compensation for your injuries:

  • The defendant owed you a legal duty
  • The defendant breached that legal duty
  • The defendant’s actions were the proximate cause of the accident
  • You suffered serious injuries or damage to your property due to the defendant’s actions

Our law firm can help you gather evidence necessary to show that a defendant acted negligently and caused your injuries.

What Our Clients Are Saying

“ was the best decision I could have ever made.”

“I hired Ben Steinberg to be my attorney after I was in a serious automobile accident. I hired Ben during a difficult time, and in retrospect it was the best decision I could have ever made. Over the course of our attorney-client relationship, Ben placed an emphasis on keeping me informed and empowered. I came away very impressed with Ben's vast knowledge in personal injury litigation and the inner-workings of the Philadelphia region's legal system. From the outset, Ben was my tireless and zealous advocate. During an uncertain time, Ben was with me every step of the way. I believe that Ben Steinberg's professionalism and unflagging devotion to always act in my best interest is what eventually led to my very significant settlement. I recommend Ben Steinberg as a personal injury attorney in the strongest possible terms.”

“...I received a larger settlement than I had expected.”

“I was involved in a slip and fall accident. I called Benjamin Steinberg for assistance on what to do. He was professional while being so compassionate and caring. He advised me on what to do, answered my questions and was very patient with me. I knew he was the attorney to handle my case. Ben spoke to me several time to keep me up to date on what was happening with my case and of course he was always concerned about how I was feeling. After several months of medical treatment I felt I was feeling better and spoke to Ben about settling the case. Much to my surprise, I received a larger settlement than I had expected. Wow, Ben is terrific! I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for legal help in any type of accident. He is tops as far as I am concerned.”
