Common Personal Injury Cases We Handle

In order to have legal grounds for a personal injury claim, you must prove that another person, company, business, government entity, or some other party is liable for your injuries and damages. Another party could be liable if they owed you a duty of reasonable care but failed to uphold this duty, either be acting negligently or wrongfully.

Examples of common personal injury claims include cases involving:

  • Car, motorcycle, and other private motor vehicle accidents
  • Truck accidents and other commercial vehicle crashes
  • Unsafe property conditions (premises liability)
  • Slips, trips, and falls
  • Dog bites and/or attacks
  • Defective products (product liability)
  • Medical malpractice and negligence
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect
  • Police brutality
  • Sexual abuse and assault
  • Work-related accidents and injuries
  • Wrongful death

At The Russell Friedman Law Group, LLP, our Garden City personal injury lawyers are highly experienced in all aspects of the law. We can assist you with your claim and begin an immediate investigation into what happened, who was at fault, and who is liable for your losses.

What Are Damages?

In personal injury cases, “damages” are any losses—economic or non-economic—sustained as a result of another’s negligence. Victims are entitled to recover compensation for these damages when the at-fault party breached the duty of care or was otherwise negligent.

Depending on your specific circumstances, you may be able to recover compensation for the following damages:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Ambulance and hospital fees
  • Medical treatments
  • Ongoing and future medical care costs
  • Medications
  • Medical equipment, such as a wheelchair
  • Current and future lost wages/income
  • Reduced or lost earning capacity (disability)
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress and trauma
  • Counseling services
  • Property damage

In rare cases, victims may be able to recover punitive damages. These are a specific type of damages meant to punish liable persons/parties when their conduct was particularly egregious, such as in the case of a drunk driver causing the death of another person.
