Many Ways To Get Hurt
Personal injuries occur in many ways. When they happen due to the negligence of someone else or a company, you may wonder what your next steps are.
We want to cover some of the common ways people sustain personal injuries. These are just some examples and this is not an exhaustive list. If you are not sure about your case, please seek advice from a qualified attorney.
Workplace injuries and illnesses are common and often happen due to the negligence of a company. If employers fail to provide proper safety equipment or do not properly train all employees to perform their job, dangerous mistakes can be made. The BLS reported more than 2.8 million worker injuries last year.
Medical mistakes kill at least 250,000 people a year in the United States. This puts them behind only heart disease and cancer as the leading killers in the country. These can occur in the form of:
- Medication errors
- Hospital-acquired infections
- Surgical mistakes
- Birth injuries
- And more
Faulty products are responsible for thousands of injuries each year in the US and can occur with foods, cosmetics, vehicles, toys, medications, appliances and more. They happen because of:
- Poor product designs
- Manufacturing errors
- Labeling problems
Reckless and careless drivers are a danger on Pennsylvania roadways. The state DOT says that nationally, an estimated 85-90% of all traffic crashes involve some sort of driver error. This can be due to drunk driving, distracted driving, or some other form of negligence.
Pedestrians and bicyclists are especially vulnerable because they have no protection from the impact of a vehicle. Their injuries are often severe. In the state’s latest reporting year, there were:
- 4,106 pedestrian injuries
- 1,127 bicyclist injuries
