Motorcycle Accident Services and Information

There are many different instances where you may find yourself in need of a personal injury lawyer. Although motorcycle accidents are a common personal injury, they are certainly not the only ones. The truth is there are more accidents that occur in the home than occur on the road, but those do not fall under the personal injury category unless they are related to defective product in which case they would fall under product liability. Aside from accidents in the home, motor vehicle accidents are the most common personal injury accidents.

Motor vehicle accidents do not involve just cars and motorcycles but also trucks. In the case of trucks, a large number of these involve tractor trailers or 18 wheelers. In most cases when a car or motorcycle is involved in an accident with a big rig, there are serious if not fatal injuries. The personal injuries often occur as a result of driver error due to unrealistic deadlines. Drivers of big trucks need to make a delivery at a certain time, and if they are held up in traffic, they attempt to make up the time by driving faster which in turn causes an accident. They may also attempt to make a deadline by driving longer than is reasonable and become fatigued and lose concentration on the road.

Brain injuries are another common cause of personal injury lawsuits. Although acquired brain injuries such as those related to stroke do not customarily become part of personal injury litigation, traumatic brain injuries do. In fact, the majority of brain injuries fall into the traumatic brain injury category and are due to blows to the head, domestic violence and various types of accidents. Those who suffer from brain injuries can often no longer do for themselves and must rely on someone else to do the things they used to do. This creates a financial hardship on the family who must pay for domestic help.

Slip and fall accidents are more common than one would like to see, and they occur not just at home but also in places of business. Premises liability for personal injury is a common type of personal injury lawsuit, but it also requires some proof when it involves a business. You want to make sure you have a camera or a witness who can verify you fell due to an obstruction. Any evidence you can produce will help your case when your personal injury lawyer presents it to the court.
When you hire a personal injury lawyer to handle your lawsuit make sure you provide all of the evidence you have available, especially with a premises liability case. Car accidents are much easier to prove but with premises liability there is likely to be the word of the company against yours, and without a witness or picture, they are likely to say you created the hazard yourself. The more evidence you can present to prove your case the better the chances are that your personal injury lawyer can win a substantial settlement for you.
