Personal Injury Explained
Personal Injury occurs when a person sustains a physical or psychological injury due to the negligence of an outside party or establishment. The effects of personal injury vary, but if the injury is especially severe, it can be emotionally, physically, and financially devastating. Weitz and Luxenberg handles many different types of personal injury cases nationwide and can help you recover damages if you suffered a catastrophic injury due to someone else’s negligence.
He never expected to be hurt while at work
Sanjay thoroughly enjoyed his position as a web developer at a computer company. He had a good camaraderie with his colleagues, and was highly regarded by his boss for his diligence and work ethic.
One day, Sanjay’s life took an unexpected and regrettable turn.
While in the office cafeteria, Sanjay did not notice the puddle of water in front of the leaky water cooler. As he was reaching for a cup, Sanjay slipped and landed directly on his back. Lying on the floor in excruciating pain, he wondered whether or not he would be able to function normally, and what would become of his position at his company.
Now in the hospital, Sanjay has more than just his personal injuries to worry about.
- How will he pay for his hospital stay and treatments (therapy, medication etc.?)
- Unable to work for an indefinite period, how will he be able to finance his personal bills (cell phone, rent, electricity etc.?)
- How long will it be before he will be able to engage in everyday activities again?
Does Sanjay’s situation sound familiar? Contact Weitz and Luxenberg for legal assistance.
Weitz and Luxenberg: Your Personal Injury Law Firm
Weitz and Luxenberg offers expert legal counsel in the following personal injury areas:
Aviation:Whether traveling for personal pleasure or for business, no one should have to suffer due to poor airline service. One example of atrocious aviation service occurred on a Jet Blue aircraft on Valentine’s Day 2007. Due to inclement weather, the plane was unable to take off, and passengers were trapped for hours with scant food and filthy facilities.
Back/Spinal Injury: The spinal column is especially vital, so a back injury can be debilitating. A person can injury their back in a motor accident, while playing rigorous sports, or even while doing the simple act of walking.
Birth Defects: There are few things more devastating for a parent than to have a child with mental and/or physical defects, especially if the defects were preventable.
Burn Injury: In addition to the physical pain that accompanies a burn injury, especially one that results in severe disfigurement, a burn victim must contend with a series of serious issues that they will not likely be able to handle without legal counsel.
Brain Injury: Damage to the brain is perhaps the worst type of physical injury a person can suffer. The brain is the most important organ in the body, and when it has been damaged, there is no guarantee that it will be able to repair itself completely, if at all.
Eye Injury: Imagine living your life without sight. When a person loses their sight in an accident, the restoration of vision can be difficult and in some unfortunate cases, impossible.
Life Insurance Law: Most of us are concerned about the welfare of our loved ones, which is why we purchase a life insurance policy. A parent may purchase life insurance so that in the event of their death, their child will be well taken care of financially. Life insurance policies vary from state to state and in some cases, a life insurance company may try to deny death benefits.
Nursing Home Abuse: It is difficult to fathom why a caregiver would knowingly abuse a senior citizen in a nursing home. Sadly, such neglect is not uncommon.
Wrongful Death: When wrongful death occurs, it can often be traced to the negligence of an outside party. If wrongful death occurs in a medical facility, it usually occurs due to improper observation of rules, regulations and/or safety standards.
Product Liability: Defective or dangerous products are responsible for countless, largely preventable deaths each year. In a product liability lawsuit, an injured person can not only seek damages from the manufacturer of the defective product, but they can also seek compensation from the companies that designed, marketed and sold the products.
Stray Electricity: “Over 400 people are electrocuted annually, and over 40 percent of those cases can be traced to defective products (U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission).” Stray electricity can cause ventricular fibrillation, or rapid heartbeat, which can lead to serious injury or even death.
