Uncommon Scenarios That May Require An Injury Lawyer

Free Case Evaluation

Personal Injury Cases

When we think of personal injury cases, we often envision car accidents, slip and falls, or workplace incidents. While these are common scenarios where an injury lawyer’s expertise is invaluable, there are other, more unusual situations where legal representation might be necessary. Let’s explore five uncommon scenarios that may require assistance from an attorney.

1. Dog Park Mishaps

Dog parks are places where our furry friends can run around and play with other dogs or yourself. However, mishaps can still occur. If your dog bites or attacks another person or their pet, you could find yourself facing a personal injury claim. In such cases, an injury lawyer can help protect your rights and navigate the complexities of dog bite laws in your state.

2. Trampoline Accidents

While trampolines can be a great source of fun, especially for children, accidents can occur. If someone gets hurt on your trampoline while visiting your property, you may be held liable for their medical expenses and other damages. An injury lawyer can help you understand your responsibilities as a trampoline owner and defend you against potential legal claims.

3. Falling Objects

Imagine walking down the street and suddenly getting hit by a falling object, such as a flowerpot or a piece of signage. These unpredictable accidents can cause severe injuries and raise questions about premises liability. An attorney can help by assessing the situation and determining who should be held liable.

4. Food Poisoning at a Social Event

You attend a potluck dinner, and hours later, you find yourself seriously ill due to food poisoning. While it might seem like an unfortunate accident, foodborne illnesses can result from improper food handling or storage. If you believe that your illness was caused by someone’s negligence, consulting with an injury lawyer can help you explore your legal options.

5. Carnival Ride Injuries

Amusement parks and carnival rides offer exhilarating experiences, but sometimes accidents occur due to mechanical failures or operator errors. If you or a loved one sustains an injury on a carnival ride, proving liability and seeking compensation can be complex. Working with an attorney can be a helpful way to navigate this challenging process.

While personal injury cases often involve common scenarios like car accidents and slip and falls, there are many other unlikely situations where the expertise of an injury lawyer can make a difference. From dog park mishaps and trampoline accidents to falling objects, food poisoning at social events, and carnival ride injuries, unexpected incidents can lead to serious injuries and legal disputes. An attorney on your side can help you determine what your legal options are and give you peace of mind. Whether you are facing a dog bite claim, premises liability case, or seeking compensation for a foodborne illness, an injury lawyer can guide you through the legal process, gather evidence, negotiate with insurance companies, and advocate for the compensation you deserve.

My experience with Cohen &Cohen was beyond my expectations. Jill did an amazing job with negotiating on my behalf and got me way more money than I anticipated. Thank you for having my back.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Wayne Cohen and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!
