There are many ways to sustain a personal injury. Whether you have been injured in a car accident, workplace accident, construction accident, through medical malpractice, or due to nursing home abuse or neglect, you have the legal right to be compensated for your injuries. Learn more about the various types of personal injuries from the experienced Akron personal injury lawyers at Niekamp Weisensell Mutersbaugh & Mastrantonio, LLP.
Thousands of Ohioans are injured in motor vehicle accidents every year. Whether you are injured as a driver, passenger, motorcycle riders, bicyclists, pedestrian, or scooter rider, you have the right to be compensated for injuries caused by a negligent driver. A personal injury lawyer can help you prove the driver’s negligence and fight for fair compensation for all the losses you suffer as a result of your injuries.
Some workplaces are more prone to accidents than others. If you work in manufacturing or operate heavy machinery, you might experience an injury in the workplace over the course of your career. Most Ohio employers are required to carry worker’s compensation coverage. Workers who are injured on the job are entitled to worker’s compensation benefits, regardless of who is found at fault for the accident. You might also have the right to bring a personal injury lawsuit. For example, if your workplace accident was caused by a defective machine, the manufacturer could be liable for your injuries.
Construction sites are one of the most dangerous workplaces across the United States. High installations, heavy machinery, dangerous equipment, and negligent drivers in work zones all lead to an especially high rate of injury among construction workers. But construction site accidents can befall those who happen to be passing by or driving through a work zone. Construction companies have a legal obligation to perform their work safely. Those who fail to do so are liable for compensating victims for the injuries they cause.
Every year, thousands of medical mistakes are committed throughout the state of Ohio. Many of these are harmless (or are caught before they can injure a patient). But many of them result in serious injuries, amputations, disabilities, and even death. Patients who are injured due to medical malpractice have the right to seek compensation from doctors and hospitals that allow negligence to occur. When medical malpractice results in death, surviving family members also have the right to sue doctors and hospitals for wrongful death.
Medical malpractice can also extend to nursing home abuse and neglect. These are complicated lawsuits that can consist of both medical malpractice claims against doctors and negligence claims against facilities that allow abuse and neglect to occur. Victims need the legal advice of a skilled attorney who knows how to prove these different claims and what fair compensation is for all the losses caused by nursing home abuse and neglect.
