What Kinds of Personal Injury Cases Are the Most Common in Houston?
Houston is the largest city in Texas, and it is growing exponentially every year. In a largely populated city, there will unfortunately be many personal injuries, whether in the workplace, on the road, or at home. Here are five of the most common personal injuries that happen in the city of Houston, and how you can file a personal injury claim for each one.
Which Injuries Are the Most Common?
The five most common personal injuries in Houston are auto accidents, slip and fall injuries, defective product injuries, medical malpractice, and dog bite injuries. Auto accidents can involve various circumstances and parties, so this kind of personal injury case can be long and require an extensive investigation. After filing a personal injury claim, you can recover financially depending on who was at fault and both parties’ insurance. Slip and fall injuries and dog bite injuries can result in severe head injuries, brain injuries, as well as neurological damage. If these injuries are due to someone else’s negligence, you can seek financial coverage. Medical malpractice can result in a very controversial personal injury case, resulting from a doctor or physician’s negligence when treating you. You have to prove the doctor’s failure to provide effective care with hard evidence. Lastly, defective product injuries can occur in your vehicle, your home, or at work, and under product liability laws, you can prove that the seller or manufacturer was negligent when they produced and sold the defective product.
