Types of LawsuitsPersonal injury claims can encompass many injuries. You may be able to file a product liability claim against a company that sold you a defective product that caused you harm. You could sue an insurance agency if one of their drivers hit you and hurt your back. You could sue the doctor or the hospital in a medical malpractice claim if you were damaged during a stay. Other types of cases include slip and falls, dog bites, bed bugs, construction accidents, and more.
Basis of a ClaimIn order to file a lawsuit, you must be aware of the concept of negligence. You will only be able to win your personal injury case if you can prove that the opposing party was negligent in his duties and caused you harm. Negligence can be established as true via the following four points:
- You were owed a duty of care
- The duty of care was breached
- The breach caused an accident
- The accident resulted in physical harm
