Are Personal Injuries Common in Sanford, and What Should I Watch For?
When most people think of a personal injury, they almost immediately think of injuries resulting from car accidents. Those are a very common type of injury – so much so that we dedicate part of our practice to helping them.
Lee County records are nebulous, but in 2018 “Other Unintentional Injuries” caused more death than motor vehicle accidents. These include deaths from fires and burns, falls, drownings, suffocation, and poisoning. Any of these could be a personal injury case!
Poisoning Can Be a Personal Injury
For example, you’re at a restaurant somewhere in the area of Carthage & Horner. You specifically ask for a meal without seafood because of an allergy but are given seafood anyway, causing anaphylaxis. The emergency room visit and aftermath leave you with thousands of dollars in medical bills. You may be entitled to compensation for personal injury.
Whenever you suffer harm due to the negligence or carelessness of someone else, you may have a personal injury claim. Consult with a personal injury for Sanford to determine if you have a case and what types of compensation you may seek.
Burn Injuries Don’t Necessarily Need Fire
Let’s say you’re staying at a hotel near the Sanford Golf Course. You head to the shower, but the hot water temperature is set too high, and you suffer scalding and burns that ruin your stay and vacation. You may be entitled to compensation – including the money you spent for your vacation that you can no longer enjoy.
The hotel stay, meals, travel costs, and activity fees are all potentially recoverable damages: money that your injury has cost you outside of the costs of the injury itself. An experienced Sanford personal injury lawyer can help you sort out the details and determine if you have a case.
What if You Are Injured by a Person Who Is Committing a Crime?
Imagine that you and your friends are having a casual drink at a local bar or brewery. Another patron, for whatever reason, attacks you (fortunately less likely in Sanford, where violent crime is 40% below the national average). Of course, this is assault and police arrest the assailant. But did you know that you may also be able to pursue a personal injury case against them?
That’s right. Crime victims may be able to sue their assailants, such as victims of assault, sexual or domestic abuse, and other crimes. Plus, you need not wait for the criminal case to proceed. Many people fail to exercise their rights in a situation like this, and an experienced injury attorney for Sanford may be able to help you.
