The Most Common Causes of Personal Injuries

Posted on January 20, 2016

Farah & Farah has represented many people injured because of the negligence of another person or company. We’ve been able to secure settlement for clients injured in all kinds of ways. Here are the most common causes of personal injury claims

Car Accidents

There are about 6 million car accidents each year in the United States. This includes accidents involving bicyclists and pedestrians. Increasing use of cellphones while driving is only going to keep these numbers high.

Work Related Injuries

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reported nearly 3 million non-fatal work related injuries in 2014. The Bureau also reported that almost 5,000 people died from work related injuries in 2014. The most common work-related injuries involved repetitive motion injuries like back problems from lifting heavy objects or carpal tunnel from typing too much.

Slip, Trip, and Fall Accidents

The National Safety Council reports that in 2011, slip, trip, and fall accidents led to almost 9 million emergency room visits. These accidents are so common because they can happen anywhere: the supermarket, the sidewalk, even at work. Slip, trip, and fall injuries are especially rough on the spine, neck, and head.

Wrongful Death Accidents

Unfortunately, some accidents lead to a person losing their life. These claims have risen due to the number of car accidents, bike collisions, dangerous drugs, and sports accidents. Any death caused by the negligence of another person or company can lead to a wrongful death claim.

Product Liability

People put a lot of trust in the safety of products they buy. But, product liability injury claims are on the rise. Every day someone gets hurt by faulty equipment or the negligent actions of other people or companies. Farah & Farah is currently handling nationwide product liability cases for dangerous drug claims.
