Skilled Legal Representation in All Types of Personal Injury Matters in South Hill, WA
Personal injury law actually encompasses a wide range of negligence-based accidents. Some of the most common, however, involve allegations of carelessness while driving. Often, these accidents take place when two vehicles collide, although this isn’t the only type of vehicle-related accident we see in South Hill. Others include:
- Motorcycle accidents;
- Truck crashes;
- Bicycle accidents; and
- Collisions with pedestrians.
Unfortunately, these kinds of accidents, especially those involving collisions between vehicles and cyclists or pedestrians often result in particularly devastating injuries, some of which end up causing permanent disability or even death.
Slip and Fall Accidents
In Washington, property owners are required to take a certain amount of care in keeping their premises safe, especially for visitors, so if a person is later injured on someone else’s property, he or she could be entitled to compensation. These types of claims tend to arise most often as a result of accidents in commercial establishments like retail and grocery stores, where property owners are held to an especially high standard of care. Those who don’t satisfy this standard by failing to inspect their premises regularly, failing to keep their property hazard free, and forgetting to warn visitors of potential dangers, could find themselves liable for the victim’s medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Property owners are not the only entities that are held to a high standard of care when it comes to consumers. Companies that manufacture consumer products, for instance, must take great care when designing, assembling, shipping, and selling their products. Businesses that fail to do so by using inferior designs or materials, failing to protect products during shipping, or failing to warn consumers of the potential dangers of their products can be found liable for manufacturing a defective product. This is only true, however, if a plaintiff can prove that he or she was injured by the product as a result of the company’s failure.
