Most Common Types of Injuries

Since tort law encompasses nearly any kind of harm or loss that might be inflicted due to a breach of duty, there is an enormous variety of personal injury claims. Some of the more common injuries in these personal injury claims include:

Car Accidents

The most common type of personal injury case relates to injuries sustained on our roadways in cars and other kinds of vehicles as a result of another driver’s negligence. Truck accidents and motorcycle accidents can be especially devastating. If a car accident caused by someone else's negligence has cost you time, money, and your quality of life, call a personal injury lawyer now.

Slip and Falls

Also known as premises liability, these cases involve accidents that occur on another party’s property. In a slip and fall case, the injury must be the result of the property owner’s negligence and failure to keep visitors safe from harm.

Doctor icon

Medical Malpractice

We depend on medical practitioners to provide safe and adequate care. Those who do not pose a real danger to patients. To initiate a medical malpractice suit, the harm incurred must be an outcome of substandard care.

Defective product icon

Defective products

If the manner in which a product is designed or manufactured is dangerous when used as intended, it may warrant pursuing legal action. Defective product cases often involve dangerous drugs and medical devices, as well as consumer products such as airbags. Defective car parts can easily result in car accidents.

Child Injury

What Are Torts? A Closer Look at the Essence of Personal Injury Law

Torts are civil wrongs that unfairly cause another party harm, loss, or even wrongful death, and are grounds for initiating a lawsuit. Although torts may be criminal, this is not always the case. The harm inflicted might be due to negligence, but not necessarily criminal negligence.

The tort system provides relief to victims through compensation, or the damages awarded via a lawsuit. Every tort claim has two basic components: liability and damages. Essentially, the courts will determine if the defendant is responsible for the harm inflicted on the plaintiff, and if so, what amount of money (extent of damages) is due as compensation for that harm.

Simply put, if you can prove the other party’s liability and the extent of damages, you will be compensated for your injury. Having a personal injury attorney on your side is the best way to establish this proof. Our Oklahoma City firm is here to help.

What Happens during a Personal Injury Case?

The circumstances surrounding each personal injury case will be entirely unique, since no two cases follow exactly the same path. However, there are some common steps that most personal injury cases share:

Defendant Harms the Plaintiff

Virtually any injurious act committed by the defendant can be grounds for legal action, except for contractual breaches. A separate body of law, known as contract law, handles contract disputes.

Breach of Legal Duty Determined

The victim, often working with a lawyer, will determine that their injury was the result of a breach of a specific legal duty. An example includes a medical professional not fulfilling their duty to provide care at reasonable levels of competence.

Settlement Talks

If it is clear to all parties involved that the defendant breached a legal duty, then the defendant (or the representing insurance company) may settle for compensation outside of court. Typically, the defendant will make a monetary offer to the injured party in exchange for a binding promise not to file a lawsuit over the injury.

Settlement or Decision to Go to Court

If the plaintiff and defendant agree to a settlement, the claim ends. If an agreement is not reached, the plaintiff may file a personal injury lawsuit and take the case to court. After a lawsuit is filed, settlement negotiations may continue. A settlement can be reached at any time before the civil case is handed over to a jury, who will determine the defendant’s liability.

A Case Study: Auto Accidents

As the most common types of personal injury cases our Oklahoma City personal injury attorneys see, car accidents and truck accidents serve as a good example of how a personal injury case might typically proceed:
1 icon

You are injured by a driver who ran a traffic light.

2 icon

Since the driver’s breach of duty is determined to be the cause of your injuries, he is liable for your pain and suffering.

3 icon

You initiate settlement talks with the driver, but both parties cannot come to an agreement on the terms of the settlement.

4 icon

You file a personal injury case with the court, ideally with the help of a personal injury attorney.

5 icon

After hearing your case, the jury determines that the defendant owes you damages for your injuries.

Simply put, if you can prove the other party’s liability and the extent of damages, you will be compensated for your injury.
