Types of Injury Lawsuits
Dealing with the effects of an unexpected injury is stressful for anyone. Pain, lost wages, and an inability to enjoy your usual activities are difficult enough, but when the injury is caused by the careless actions of another, the frustration mounts.

Common Types of Injuries
In most cases, the cause of action in a personal injury lawsuit involves a serious injury requiring extensive or long-term medical treatment. Sometimes, there is a permanent disability or other life-altering circumstance as a consequence of the accident. These types of injuries often occur to pedestrians and passengers in motor vehicle accidents, and also result from slip and falls, drug accidents, crime, or sports-related trauma. Other common injuries occur in swimming or boating incidents, construction and other workplace accidents, or result from negligence or medical malpractice.

- Spinal, neck, and back injuries
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Gunshot wounds

- Toxic poisoning
- Sexual assault
- Pharmaceutical drug overdose or reaction
Personal Injury Lawsuits and Compensation
Some people are the cause of their own accidental injury, whether through clumsy inattention or reckless behavior. But in many cases, an injured party is the innocent victim of the negligent actions of another. Our civil court system acknowledges each citizen's responsibility to do everything reasonably possible to avoid causing harm to other people. Individuals and companies are held responsible through civil laws pertaining to product liability, premises liability, employment safety, guns, traffic, and more.
Liability insurance and workers' compensation provide some protection against accidents, but the courts help ensure that victims are treated fairly. It is the personal injury lawyer's role to investigate a client's case, determine liability for the injury, and establish proof with evidence.
The AV-rated attorneys at Foley Law Firm are experienced and dedicated to helping accident victims and their families. We understand the long-term repercussions of a serious injury, and we aggressively pursue full compensation for clients. This may include reimbursement for medical bills and lost wages (including present and future), as well as punitive damages and compensation for pain and suffering.
As a client of Foley Law Firm, you will not have to worry about legal bills. We work on a contingency fee basis, so you pay us nothing until we achieve a settlement or jury award on your behalf. Our clients are encouraged to rest and recuperate, leaving the insurance adjusters and legal matters in our capable hands.
