Causes of Personal Injury

Motor vehicle accidents are among the leading causes of personal injury. Other causes include:

  • Dangerous or Defective Products

    Weitz & Luxenberg helped negotiate a more than $1 billion settlement with Stryker for patients injured by hip implants.

  • Construction Accidents

    We helped secure $2.96 million for a laborer who had part of his leg amputated after an accident at work.

  • Medical Mistakes

    Our attorneys won $8.5 million for the mother of a child who suffered irreparable brain damage during delivery.

Medical Malpractice

Though many doctors in the U.S. are skilled and caring, others don’t always put their patients’ needs first. Some physicians have used broken equipment, misdiagnosed patients, or made surgical errors. Unfortunately, these types of mistakes often turn out to be fatal. Patients and their families deserve to be compensated for their pain and suffering.

For more than a quarter-century, Weitz & Luxenberg has been winning complicated medical cases. Since its inception, our medical malpractice team has worked on 1,000-plus lawsuits for wrongful death, injury, and misdiagnosis, recovering $7 million for our clients in one year alone.*

We’re proud of the results we achieved for our clients and their families … and hope that the settlements serve as a deterrent so doctors can avoid future cases of medical malpractice.”
— Allan Zelikovic, head of Weitz & Luxenberg’s Medical Malpractice unit.

Common Questions about Personal Injury Lawsuits

Many of our clients have never before filed a lawsuit, and the experience can be overwhelming without the proper legal support. That’s why we make sure members of our experienced team are on call 24/7 to answer questions and ensure that all your needs are met. Some common questions include:

Your injuries do not need to be physical for you to seek compensation. Emotional suffering is a form of personal injury, too. Examples include depression following the wrongful death of a loved one, or nightmares and insomnia following a car accident.

Other causes of personal injury include: assault and battery; false arrest, detention, or imprisonment; slips and falls; wrongful invasion of or eviction from your private home; defamation; and publication of material that violates your right to privacy.

When hiring a firm to represent you, be sure to ask questions about a firm’s experience and its philosophy toward working with clients. Throughout the past 30 years, Weitz & Luxenberg has successfully provided more than 50,000 clients with exceptional and compassionate legal help.

As a surviving family member, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In addition, if a family member’s death resulted from negligence, you may be able to receive compensation for your pain and suffering through a personal injury lawsuit.
