What’s the difference between an injury causing accident and a personal injury case?
The primary difference between accidents that cause injury and personal injury cases is that the latter is caused by negligence of another party. This can be a doctor’s failure to properly diagnose a disease, a product manufacturer’s forgetting to place a warning label on a product, a property owner’s inadequacy to maintain safety standards, etc.
Sadly, injuries are unpredictable. You should reasonably place your trust in doctors, premise owners, and those around you to act with care rather than recklessness. However, sometimes these individuals fail in their duty to you.
If you or someone you know has suffered an injury due to someone else’s negligence, you should contact a lawyer to determine if you have a case. For more information, contact an Oklahoma personal injury attorney from the Abel Law Firm today by calling (405) 239-7046.
