Types of Cases

Various types of accidents can give rise to a personal injury claim in Columbia. These could include:

  • Automobile and tractor-trailer collisions
  • Trip and fall accidents
  • Animal bites
  • Occupational injury
  • Hazardous drugs and products
  • Medical error
  • Severe injury accidents
  • Wrongful or preventable deaths

Although the context of the claim may vary, whenever a negligent person or company breaches a duty that they owed and causes injuries, there may be grounds for a personal injury claim.

Filing an Accident Claim

It is important to identify the parties who may be held liable for damages following an accident. In some cases, multiple people, companies, parties, or entities could be liable for the damages. A diligent personal injury attorney in Columbia could provide assistance with identifying liable parties and working to hold them accountable in court.

“The Choice of a Lawyer Is An Important Decision and Should Not Be Based Solely Upon Advertisements. Past Results Afford No Guarantee of Future Results. Every Case is Different And Must Be Judged On Its Own Merits. Past Results are Good Indicators for the Types of Cases a Law Firm has Handled Through Conclusion.”
