Types of Accidents Covered in Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury covers all accidents that were caused by the careless, reckless, or negligent actions of another person, business, or corporation. Here are the most common types of personal injury accidents that are filed every year:
- Car Accidents: Every year, thousands upon thousands of car accidents across Washington, D.C., and Maryland send patients to the hospital with severe and life-changing injuries. From head-on collisions to multi-vehicle accidents on our highways, these accidents happen for many reasons and widely involve the negligence of multiple parties. As you face the reality of medical bills that continue to pile up and you continue to try to cope with the injuries that you sustained in your accident, you may wonder how a motor vehicle accident attorney can help you.

Having a skilled truck accident lawyer on your side from the very start can be the best move you can make in your personal injury claim.
- Motorcycle Accidents: Motorcyclists are some of the most vulnerable parties on our roadways. Research shows that drivers are not always looking out for their wellbeing. With tragic accidents happening on our highways and at intersections every year, the roads can be a dangerous place for motorcyclists. If you were injured or have lost a family member in a motorcycle accident that was caused by another motorist’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. Our specialized team of motorcycle accident lawyers can answer all of your questions and let you know if you have the right to pursue a claim for your injuries and losses.
- Bus Accidents: Buses are a type of public transportation known as common carriers, taking passengers to and from many places for a fee. Even if you don’t drive an automobile, you may have to rely on different modes of transportation to get from place to place. You may use a ride sharing services, such as Lyft and Uber, or you may take a bus or metropolitan transportation system to get to where you are going. In all of these instances, you are placing your safety in the hands on another person. If an accident takes place and you are injured, it’s critical to know how to proceed with your personal injury claim so that you can be compensated for your medical treatment, lost wages, and other damages. Contact the Washington, D.C., bus accident lawyers at the Fay Law Group to ensure that your rights are protected as soon as possible following your bus accident.
- Pedestrian Accidents: Pedestrians have no protection from harm when they are involved in an accident with a motor vehicle. That makes them especially vulnerable to serious injuries that sometimes result in the death of the pedestrian. If you were injured or have lost a family member as the result of a pedestrian accident caused by the negligent action of a motorist, you need the help and guidance from a skilled personal injury or wrongful death lawyer who can protect your rights.

When you do make that choice, you should expect that your loved one will be treated with respect, dignity, and with a high level of care. Sadly, nursing homes and care facilities are often understaffed, which leads to the elderly residents not being properly supervised, resulting in injuries. Some staff members may not provide adequate care for the residents. If you believe that your elderly loved one has been injured or died as a result of neglect or abuse, contact the elder neglect attorneys at the Fay Law Group to find out if you have the right to pursue a claim.

Types of Compensation Available to Injury Victims
There are several factors that a personal injury lawyer will need to consider as they work to determine what a fair and appropriate settlement would be for the injuries that you sustained in your accident. The following are some of the aspects that are considered when building your personal injury lawsuit:
- Medical Bills: There is no doubt that the largest percentage of damages you will typically require in a personal injury claim are the medical bills. Medical care can be expensive, which is why you need a skilled attorney who will fight for your right to compensation during this difficult time.
- Lost Income: Your ability to work may be temporarily or permanently impacted by your injuries. You may be entitled to compensation for time that you were unable to work because of the injuries that were incurred in your accident.
- Emotional Distress: Nothing compares to the adverse emotions that you might be feeling after you have been involved in an accident. The pain caused by an accident can be ongoing but the emotional trauma and anxiety that you feel may follow you through life.
- Loss of Consortium: These damages are not typical in every case but are given to family members and loved ones who have missed out on a relationship with a loved one who was either injured or killed in an accident.
- Punitive Damages: Punitive damages can be seen in cases that involve especially reckless behavior by the defendant. They are meant to be given to those who have been adversely impacted by a defendant’s actions and are meant to punish the defendant and deter others from engaging in these acts.
