Types of Personal Injury Lawsuits in Easton, Maryland

The following are common types of personal injury claims that may be filed by people who live in or near Easton, Maryland, due to injuries caused by negligence.

Brain Injuries

Suffering from a traumatic brain injury (TBI) may make you eligible to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party was responsible for your condition. TBIs can result from a lack of oxygen to the brain or blunt force trauma and can cause a change in personality, loss of cognitive functions, and reduction in physical capabilities for the rest of a person’s life. TBIs can happen as a result of medical malpractice, car accidents, slips and falls, or defective products, all of which can be the product of negligence.

Dog Bites

If a dog owner knows that their dog is prone to biting and lets their dog roam or wander irresponsibly, the owner may be responsible if the dog bites a person. However, a dog owner can usually not be held responsible if it is dog’s first time biting someone else and the owner had no reason to suspect that the dog had a propensity for biting. Victims of dog bites may not be able to recover damages for their dog bites if they were trespassing on the property where the dog was being kept, were in the process of committing a crime, or were provoking the dog that bit them.

Nursing Home Abuse

The abuse of residents in nursing homes can come in various forms: physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional and psychological abuse, neglect, and financial abuse or exploitation. Abuse of elders in nursing homes is often considered negligence on the part of the nursing home that hired and retained the abusive or negligent employees.

Product Liability

Product designers and manufacturers, wholesalers, packagers, marketers, and retailers may be responsible for any injuries sustained by consumers of defective products. Product liability cases usually result from defective cars, electronics, baby toys, medical devices and supplies, and recreational equipment. In order to file a lawsuit for an injury sustained from a defective product, you will need to prove that the product had a defect, that you used the product for its intended purpose, and that you were injured as a direct result of the defect in the product.

Work Injuries

Victims of injuries sustained at work can be compensated for most injuries through worker’s compensation insurance. To receive compensation for injuries that are not covered by Maryland worker’s compensation, you may have to file a lawsuit. To qualify, the injury that happened at work must be accidental in nature and must have happened while the victim was actually working.

Wrongful Death

If someone dies as a result of the negligence of another party (this may be from a car or bike accident, a defective product, an animal attack, or medical negligence), the family of the deceased person may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit. If successful, the family will receive damages for the expenses that the victim incurred until the time of their death and/or the losses that the surviving family members experienced because of the victim’s demise. Certain restrictions apply to wrongful death lawsuits: they must be filed within three years of the victim’s death, and they must be filed by close relatives of the victim, namely children and spouses.

Defining Negligence in a Personal Injury Lawsuit

Successful personal injury claims require proving a few specific elements in the case:

  1. The party that is at fault had a legal duty based on their relationship with the victim.
  2. The party at fault breached their duty by violating a rule or guideline or failing to use necessary care.
  3. The party at fault caused your injury by breaching their duty.
  4. You suffered injuries that can be compensated for in court.
