At any moment in the US, millions of people are walking, driving, working, shopping, and travelling, so it is no surprise that mishaps and injuries are an unavoidable part of everyday life. But just because accidents are commonplace does not take away the pain and confusion that result when a serious injury happens to a loved one, especially if the harm could have been prevented if someone else had not been reckless. When you or someone else suffers pain, loss or other damage because of another entity’s negligence, you can seek compensation for the expenses suffered with the assistance of a Tampa personal injury lawyer.
According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention – CDC, US emergency rooms see about 30 million people annually due to unintentional injuries. An average of 120,000 people die every year from accident related injuries, including approximately 33,000 who die from auto accidents and about 26,000 from falls. In Florida, injuries resulting from physical attack or self-inflicted harm are the leading cause of death for people aged between 1 and 44 years. The Florida Department of Health further claims that injuries are among the top three major causes of death in Florida, the other two being heart disease and cancer.
In fact, injuries claim the lives of over 12,000 people every year, which accounts for about 7 percent of all resident deaths in Florida. Injury death rates caused by unintentional injuries in Florida are 13.5 percent greater than the national average, which results in a very large number of personal injury claims in Florida.
Basically, personal injury cases are all kinds of legal disputes that arise when an individual suffers harm from an injury or accident, and another person is legally responsible for that injury. There are many cases where personal injury claims can apply, including car accident, motorcycle accident, boating, bicycle and truck accidents, workplace injuries, injuries caused by the use of defective products, slip-and-fall accidents, dog bites, and medical malpractice.
These accidents can cause a variety of injuries, such as neck injury, spinal cord injury, fractures, amputation, traumatic brain injury, soft-tissue injuries, lacerations, and contusions, among others. Recovery from serious personal injury can be expensive and lengthy. Hospital costs can accumulate, and at the same, the victim may be unable to resume work. In some unfortunate cases, the victims may never go back to their regular work.
