Many people in Pennsylvania will be lucky enough that they will never see the inside of a hospital emergency room. But, the reality is that each year in Pennsylvania and throughout the country thousands, if not millions, of people suffer injuries in a wide variety of situations that require medical attention.
Car accidents, as our readers would probably guess, are one of the main causes of injuries, including severe injuries, in America. However, there are many other causes of injuries that can leave Pennsylvania residents in need of immediate medical treatment. For example, accidents that occur on another person’s property – the common “slip-and-fall” incident – are quite real and can leave injured victims with broken bones or other injuries. When people are injured in these types of situations due to another party’s negligence or recklessness, a potential legal claim would fall within the area of “premises liability” personal injury law.
Or, each year there are many situations in which a person’s dog or other pet injures another person. Dog bites are, in fact, quite common. In these types of situations, the animal’s owner may be held responsible for the animal’s dangerous conduct.
In situations in which a person’s injuries were caused by another party, a personal injury claim may be an option to attempt to pursue financial compensation. Such compensation can be used by the victim in order to pay costly medical bills that might be stacking up, as well as addressing other financial needs. At our law firm, we attempt to help our clients get the right legal results when they have been injured.
