• Personal injury cases arise from such a wide range of circumstances that it’s impossible to list them all here. Some of the most common are car accidents, slip and fall injuries, motorcycle accidents, and work injuries, but any time someone is harmed by the fault of another person or company, there might be a personal injury claim. In fact, personal injury lawyers often handle negligence claims that don’t actually involve physical injuries at all – negligent destruction of property, for instance. A personal injury lawyer will be able to tell you whether or not you might have a personal injury case.
