There are numerous reasons why you may be preparing, or have already filed a personal injury claim. You may have been injured in a car accident, by a faulty product or when you slipped and fell on a wet floor in a business. As long as you were injured and someone else is responsible for those injuries, you can file a personal injury claim. When you file a claim, one of the questions you will likely have is in regards to the value of your claim.
- Many businesses and organizations use revolving doors to allow people in and out of their premises. While revolving doors may not immediately seem to pose a particularly significant hazard, accidents can occur, and a serious injury could result in hospitalization. If you or someone you love suffers an accident as a result of a revolving door, it's a good idea to understand more about the topic and what your legal options are.
- Dog bites are common. Each year, around 850,000 dog bite victims receive medical treatment, with over 350,000 of them going to emergency rooms. Most people, however, don't know how much the typical dog bite victim receives from a settlement. If you're bitten by a dog, here's a look at how much you might receive for your injuries and suffering. Exact payouts vary from case to case, but your case could look something like this.
- If you and your partner or spouse live in a state that had once made same-sex marriage illegal, you may still be adjusting to your expanded civil rights. In addition to being able to legally marry your same-sex partner and serve as his or her proxy in major healthcare decisions, you may also now have an expanded cause of action when your spouse or partner is injured (or even killed) in a car crash or other accident.
- If you have ever been driving down a divided highway, or a one way street and suddenly had a vehicle approach you going in the opposite direction, this can be a scary thing. Not only can these types of accidents be frightening, but if you do not have time enough to get out of the way, they can lead to devastating injuries and even death. If you, or someone you know has been involved in this type of accident, you may need to file a lawsuit.
