Top 5 Summer Injury Claims
As much as we all love dogs, the reality is that dog bites can result in a variety of injuries, ranging from tissue damage to puncture wounds or even broken bones.
In Pennsylvania, dog owners are liable for the damage their pets inflict on other people, regardless of whether the dog was previously labeled as dangerous. An injury law firm can help a dog bite victim get fair compensation. However, note that the compensation would only cover medical expenses.
Statistics show that accidents involving bicyclists increase in the summer. The most frequent reasons for fatal bike crashes are failure to yield the right of way and poor visibility.
In Pennsylvania, you may be entitled to compensation from the driver or their insurance company if the crash was their fault. An expert lawyer can help you get the compensation you deserve, such as for pain and suffering, medical bills, and lost wages.
Amusement Park Accidents
While according to the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions (IAAPA), amusement parks are generally safe, with the chance of being seriously injured being as small as 1 in 15.5 million rides, unfortunately, injuries still happen. The most common injuries are soft tissue injuries; the most frequent causes are falling in, on, off, or against the ride.
The Pennsylvania Amusement Ride Safety Advisory Board holds regular meetings to make sure that new rides and attractions adhere to safety standards. In the event of an injury, a person would be entitled to compensation from a ride operator if it is proven that the victim did not knowingly behave in a manner that contributed to the injury.
Concert Venue Injuries
There are a number of injuries commonly sustained at concert venues that you should be aware of. At some concert venues, conditions such as inadequate security, poor lighting, unsafe equipment, electrocution risks, or exposed wires, as well as the failure of the venue owners to repair any worn-out parts of the property, may cause injuries such as broken bones or gunshot wounds.
If you have sustained an injury at a concert venue, seek medical attention immediately and document the incident thoroughly. An experienced attorney will help you file your injury case and sue the venue to get the compensation you deserve for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
According to the Recreational Boating Statistics report, some of the most common reasons for boating accidents include operator inattention and inexperience, improper lookout, machinery failure, excessive speed, and alcohol use.
In order for you to get compensation if you were injured during a boating accident, it is important to prove that your injuries were caused by somebody else’s negligence. Legal representation is important to help you receive compensation for some or all of the following: medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, pain and suffering, and emotional distress.
