According to the Center for Disease Control(CDC)’s National Center for Health Statistics, nearly 180,000 people die from unintentional personal injuries every year. Injury statistics show that unintentional injury is the leading cause of death for individuals under the age of 44. It is one of the top five causes of death in all other age groups.
The injury statistics for death from unintentional personal injury are dwarfed when compared with the number of personal injuries and personal injury claims that take place in a given year. A staggering 32 million visits to the ER each year are attributed to unintentional injuries, according to injury statistics. Of these, a significant percentage are eligible for personal injury claims.
According to Chicago injury lawyers, the most common types of injuries that may be eligible for personal injury claims are:
Motor Vehicle Accidents that cause property damage and personal injury and are the fault of another party.
Accidents in the Workplace may be eligible for worker’s compensation benefits.
Medical Malpractice that often occurs from misdiagnosis or negligence can at the least cause unnecessary pain and suffering, and even lead to wrongful death.
The above are the most common types of personal injury claims, but there are many others as well – resulting from injuries like dog bites, nursing home bedsores, and many other negligence related issues. A Chicago injury lawyer is your best resource for determining if your injury is eligible for a personal injury claim.
