Personal injury covers any wrong or damage done to another in his person, property, rights, or reputation. Injuries can happen at work, because of a faulty product, or a faulty repair, in a traffic accident, because of mistake during medical treatment, or because you slipped and fell on pavement or a wet floor on someone else’s property. To have a case, the injury must occur due to the negligence or unreasonable unsafe actions of your employer, a manufacturer, your doctor, your landlord, or some other person or organization who owes you a duty of ordinary care.
Some examples of personal injury are medical malpractice, or medical negligence, wrongful death, wrongful birth, nursing home neglect, car accidents, premise liability, and more. Click on our other practice areas to learn more or contact Mr. Bergin’s office today.
