Personal Injury Is Caused By Preventable Accidents

Tennessee sees its fair share of accidents and fatalities. Because traumatic injuries are life changing, many victims believe that their harm is an “exception” when, in fact, it is the rule. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “unintentional” accidents are the number one cause of nonfatal injuries in the United States. This applies to every age group, with over 9 million injuries recorded last year. Personal injury is also the leading cause of death among victims between 1 and 44 years of age, accounting for over 100,000 deaths in 2010 alone. Some of the most common accidents leading to injury and death include:

  • Motor vehicle accidents
  • Boat and ATV accidents
  • Motorcycle, bike accidents
  • Truck, tractor trailer accidents
  • Slip-and-fall injuries
  • Dog bites, animal attacks
  • Construction, work-related injuries
  • Chemical, electrical burns and injuries
The Personal Injury Primer: Finding Relief For Your Harm

Victims often assume that, because the accident was “unintentional,” there is no one to blame. But personal injury law is not premised on “intention,” but on negligent conduct and “omission,” or the failure to act in a certain way. In legal terms, we refer to this sort of behavior as negligence, or the “breach” of a legal duty owed to the victim. Even if there was no intention to cause you harm, the accident happened and was likely preventable if not for some party’s negligence. When you are harmed by negligence, the party at fault is liable. Liable parties may include anyone from doctors, drivers, and employers to manufacturers, businesses, and property owners. When they breach a legal duty of care, they are liable for any harm caused by their negligence.

Common Examples Of Negligence And Damages

When a reckless driver causes an accident, the victim and their Nashville personal injury attorney may bring a claim against the motorist. Claimants must prove that the driver breached a legal duty through careless conduct, thereby causing their injury. This basic standard of negligence applies to most cases, whether the injury was caused by a severe dog bite, defective product, or botched surgery. They all fall under the general umbrella of “personal injury” law, even if they involve medical malpractice, wrongful death, or premises and product liability. If the injured party can successfully demonstrate that negligence caused their harm, they are entitled to a variety of compensation, including medical expenses, lost income, and damages for pain and suffering. In some cases, courts also award relief in the form of punitive damages, attorney’s fees and costs.

Motorcycle Accidents in Tennessee: Navigating the Legal Terrain
