Common Types of Personal Injuries
Research conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicates that over 30 million people each year seek treatment in hospital emergency rooms throughout the country as the result of accidental injuries. Injuries can occur as the result of slip and fall accidents, being struck by or against an object, being exposed to chemical or thermal burns, or even as the result or dog bites and attacks. Types of injuries that can occur include:
Muscle and tendon sprains, strains, and tears;
Cuts and lacerations;
Bruises and contusions,
Back and spinal cord injuries; and
Head and brain injuries.
Though commonly referred to as accidental injuries, they often occur as the result of someone’s reckless or negligent conduct.
