Cases that are considered to be personal injuries can be from a variety of causes. This area of law includes everything from car accidents to slip and fall injuries. Since it is such a wide range, our office thought it would be beneficial to share three examples of personal injury cases that were highlighted in our monthly newsletter, The Boyk Bulletin.
Examples of Personal Injury Cases
Father Dies due to Medical Facility Staff Mistake
We represented the family of older gentlemen who had been in a serious accident but survived, and as a result, was in the hospital for two weeks, but unfortunately never left. The man lost his life after a nurse allegedly turned off his heart monitor while failing to realize that the man was having a fatal heart attack.
In addition to the nurse’s alleged fatal mistake, there is also concern that the man was not being fed properly and was dehydrated at the time of his death. The cause of death is being investigated due to the many questions above.
Serious injuries after Rear-End Accident
Our client and her father were involved in a rear-end accident that caused serious injuries. The collision came with such force that our client sustained five fractured ribs and a bruised spleen. She also had such severe rib pain that she is unable to begin the necessary physical therapy to heal the pain in her neck, and is experiencing headaches from a concussion that was sustained in the accident.
Man Hit by Runner of Red Light
Our client was hit by a driver who had run a red light and his car rolled three times as a result. His hands were pinned under the door of the vehicle as it slid on its side, causing serious damage. The injury to his hand required surgery, and he is also facing serious heart problems after the accident.
As a result of this serious car accident, our client is undergoing physical therapy for the pain in his back, hips, and pelvic area.
He is unable to work as a result of the injuries.
Personal Injury Lawsuit
When someone is involved in an accident like the ones that we have highlighted above, it is critical that they receive legal guidance from a personal injury lawyer. One of the best ways to ensure that you are taking all of the necessary steps toward compensation is to hire an experienced lawyer to represent you.
