Situations You Didn’t Know a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help With

Many people are familiar with value a personal injury lawyer can provide after an accident or a case of negligence causes an injury. However, a personal injury attorney’s experience can help you in a far wider range of situations than just car accidents, slip and fall, or medical malpractice.

Here are just a few of the situations in which an experienced lawyer may be able to help you determine what happened and secure the compensation you need:

  1.  Prescription Drug Addiction and Overdose

Many people think of drug addiction and overdose as something a person does to himself or herself – not something caused by another’s negligence. However, negligent prescribing, negligent refills or failure to communicate the risks of using these powerful drugs can all cause harm to those who should reasonably have been informed, but were not – and paid the price.

  1.  Dangerous Cosmetics

For decades, consumer cosmetics contained talc and other substances that have since been questioned as to their relationship to cancer and other serious illnesses. You may not have known it at the time, and you may wonder now how to deal with the mounting medical bills, serious medical problems, and time off work related to your illness. In these situations, talking to a lawyer may help you spot the missing link between a dangerous product and your current plight.

  1.  “Freak” Accidents

A truck tie-down that snaps, hitting a worker in the eye. A girl who falls down a manhole while texting. These sound like one-in-a-million occurrences, and sometimes, they are. But even “one in a million” events have a cause – and, often, your attorney can help you figure out what that cause was. If another party’s negligence is behind it, your attorney can also help you get the compensation you need to deal with medical bills and other costs from your “freak accident.”
