Principle of Personal Injuries in Pennsylvania

Personal injury is the legal term given to bodily harm. A common example is a car accident where, a few days later, you can hardly move your head due to severe neck pain. Other examples include a doctor’s misdiagnosis of a “minor bump on the head” after you slipped and fell, and later you begin to show symptoms of traumatic brain injury. Premises liability claims also fall under the personal injury umbrella because such cases often involve injuries sustained because another individual or organization failed to provide the injured party with a reasonable standard of care. Defective products that are unsafe and cause you harm are another example of personal injury cases.

Medical malpractice occurs when doctors or other healthcare professionals fail to uphold their profession’s standard of care and cause harm to patients. Some common examples of medical malpractice include misdiagnosis, surgical mistakes, prescription errors, and birth injuries.
Personal injury can also involve intentional harm, such as nursing home abuse. Seniors who experience mistreatment at a nursing home or assisted living facility may be entitled to compensation for bedsores, infections, physical abuse, and other injuries.

Other common injury cases stem from accidents occurring at the workplace. Following an on-the-job injury, victims may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits to cover their medical expenses and lost wages.

There’s no limit to the ways in which a person can be injured, and many cases include more than one defendant. In the most tragic cases, individuals may die as a result of their injuries, which can be grounds for a wrongful death claim. An experienced Northeast and Central Pennsylvania injury lawyer will be able to assist you in the event you elect to pursue legal action, regardless of the type of injury you have suffered.
