Personal Injury Is Injuries Due To Negligence

Tuesday, February 05, 2019
Posted in Personal Injury

Personal Injury covers a wide spectrum of situations. Personal Injury is when someone suffers an injury from some person or party’s negligence. Someone or party acts in such a way that someone who is just exist suffers an injury from those actions. A person would not have suffered such injuries but for the person who was negligent or reckless. Personal injuries can happen in a myriad of ways. For example, if you are walking down the aisle of a grocery store and slip and fall due to something wet on the floor that was not marked. Or let’s say you were walking your dog down the road and a driver swerves and hits you and your dog. Or let’s say you were working as a carpenter and someone does not put their tools away properly. An injury results from the misplaced tool. That is also a personal injury. The pattern to notice is that one person is injured while the other person’s negligent act is a direct cause to the injured.

Other kinds of personal injuries come from those who ride their bicycles. In the month of May in Anaheim, it is bicycle safety awareness month. A whole month is dedicated to bicycle safety because bicycles are great alternative transportation yet, like motorcycle riders, vehicles are still having trouble navigating spaces with bicycle riders. A whole month of awareness helps to reinforce the message that bicycles are not going anywhere and they will continue to share the road with vehicles.

Common Bike Injuries

A personal injury on bicycle occurs when you are hit by a negligent driver or person. In 2016, 147 bicyclists died which counted for over 4% of vehicle accidents. This number is only increasing from year to year. Wearing the proper gear is helpful but it is not a foolproof way of getting. As you can imagine when a cyclist gets hit the likelihood of the bicyclist getting hit on the head is way greater than when traveling on any other vehicle. Wearing a helmet is helpful, but it does not prevent injuries from occurring. Instead, it helps lessen the trauma to the head but the injury can still occur. Those who wore their helmets reduced the risk for head injury by 60% and brain injury by 58%. It may not be a complete reduction, but sometimes a little protection can go a long way.

Other injuries include back or neck injuries. Again, when a person falls off their bicycle they tend to fall head first, on their side, or on their back. Regardless, the neck and back can be major components of injury. If you or someone you love is hit then it is important to seek medical attention, get a full report from the police and witnesses, and then reach out to our Personal Injury Attorneys at Compass Law Group.
