Other Common Personal Injury Situations

There are of course many other types of injuries that don’t involve motor vehicles, and some of these common personal injury scenarios include the following:

Premises Liability

The legal concept of premises liability typically pertains to instances in which someone is injured due to a property owner’s defective or unsafe conditions. The main negligence that must be proven is that the owner failed to use reasonable care and didn’t adequately maintain their property while knowing they would have guests.

There are of course many instances in which a property owner’s negligence didn’t cause an injury to occur, which is why it’s necessary to be able to prove that the owner either knew or should reasonably have known of the unsafe conditions prior to the accident’s occurrence. One of the most common types of premises liability cases are slip and fall cases, and our firm has many years of experience handling these sometimes very complex legal scenarios.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is a very common type of personal injury claim or lawsuit, and these injuries are the result of the actions or inactions of healthcare professionals. Some common types of medical malpractice claims include the following:

  • Surgical errors
  • Medical misdiagnosis
  • Birth injuries
  • Hospital-related infections
  • And countless other forms of medical negligence

There’s no doubt about it that any hospital or medical professional will take a medical malpractice claim as an affront towards their credibility, which is why it’s crucial to hire an experienced legal team like ours that will utilize medical experts to help prove that your healthcare professional(s) acted in disregard to your specific treatment’s professional standard of care.

Product Liability

Product liability personal injury law is oriented around the injuries that dangerous or defective products cause to victims. These laws are somewhat different than many other injury laws, but for the most part, they make it easier for injury victims to recover their rightful damages from negligent product manufacturers, designers or marketers.

A rule of thumb here is that a product should meet the consumer’s overall expectations, and many times product distributors along the supply chain can be held responsible for selling defective products. Some common types of product defects include:

  • Design Defects
  • Manufacturing Defects
  • Marketing Defects

Our legal team will help you to properly identify who is responsible for your injuries, and implement the necessary strategy to counteract any defenses that product manufacturers commonly utilize.

Nursing Home Abuse

There are a lot of nursing homes in Montgomery County, and each resident within a nursing home deserves to be treated with dignity and respect. Unfortunately, elder abuse and neglect is an all too common part of the nursing home industry. Some common forms of nursing home abuse include the following:

  • Physical abuse
  • Neglect
  • Emotional abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Abandonment

A nursing home facility can also be ultimately held liable for a resident’s harm if they committed a medical error, were consistently understaffed, hired unqualified employees, or breached any obligatory regulations. There’s no denying how difficult and troubling this type of personal injury scenario can be for you or your loved one, and our team will be there to hold a negligent nursing home accountable.

Dog Bite Injury

Montgomery County and the entire state of Maryland is victim-friendly in terms of dog bite laws, and these statutes ensure that a dog owner is ultimately liable for the damages that their dog inflicts on a bite/attack injury victim. The main exceptions to this liability are when a dog bites someone while they were trespassing, or if the injury victim provoked the dog.

Dog bites and attacks can lead to very serious health issues, which is why you’ll need an experienced legal team to assist you in accurately deciphering all of your damages and holding the dog owner accountable.

Wrongful Death

Death is, of course, the very worst personal injury an individual can suffer due to someone else’s negligence, but it, unfortunately, is one of the most common types of personal injury cases throughout Maryland and Montgomery County. In this situation, the surviving family will have the right to file a claim or lawsuit on behalf of the deceased accident victim or decedent.

These personal injury cases allow the decedent’s loved ones to receive compensation for their loss, including things like:

  • Loss of support
  • Funeral and other medical expenses
  • Loss of consortium
  • Loss of future household earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering, and other non-economic damages

Wrongful death is always a very difficult scenario for a family to undergo, and we’ll be there for you every step of the way as we assist you and your family after the loss of your loved one.
