Legally, personal injuries refer to instances where an individual suffers physical, emotional, or reputational damage caused by another party.
There are three grounds for filing a personal injury claim, namely:
- Negligence (the most common)
- Strict Liability
- Intentional Wrongs
Negligence is any act or failure to act by the defendant that results in a breach of their duty of care that could likely cause injuries to others.
Common accidents that often result in personal injuries include:
Truck Accidents – Truck accidents are often lethal – an accident with a large truck weighing 20 to 30 times more than your car frequently doesn’t end well. Statistics published by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) show that about 97% of vehicle occupants killed in two-vehicle crashes involving a passenger vehicle and a large truck are occupants of the passenger vehicles.
Motorcycle Accidents – Thanks to the year-round fabulous weather in Marina Del Rey, traveling on a motorcycle is a fun and popular way to reach your destination. But, as a rider or passenger, you don’t have a lot of protection against other vehicles on the road. Motorcyclists have a higher risk of suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident. Motorists are often not vigilant enough about motorcycles on the road!
Uber and Lyft Accidents – Using ride-hailing services like Uber and Lyft is a popular and convenient way of traveling in Marina Del Rey. But it is not necessarily a safe way to travel. And as more people start using ride-hailing services, the number of accidents and personal injury claims increase.
Slip and Fall Accidents – Data shows that falls are the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide. Every year many Marina Del Rey residents are seriously injured in slip and fall accidents. Common causes include wet, slippery floors and uneven surfaces.
