Have you or a loved one ever been injured and wondered whether you were eligible to file a personal injury claim? The personal injury attorneys at HHJ Trial Attorneys have the answers for you. In this post, we’ll be discussing a few different injuries that, if caused by another negligent party, can result in a valid personal injury claim. If you have been injured (physically, mentally, or financially) in any of the following circumstances, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim and receive compensation for your pain.
1. Car Accidents
One of the most common causes of injuries in our country are vehicular accidents. If another driver causes injury to you, whether you are behind the wheel or a pedestrian, then you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim. Insurance for the at fault party will step in to pay for damages, but they will seek to minimize the amount you receive. That’s their job! But the job of a car accident attorney is to ensure you receive every dollar you’re entitled to as a result of these injuries.
2. Product Liability
Everyone has an experience when a product they’ve purchased does not work properly. But has a product malfunction ever caused an injury to you? If so, you may be eligible to file a personal injury claim. Companies are legally required to ensure the safety of their products, and if a manufacturer fails to meet this safety standard, you have the right to challenge for compensation with a product liability claim.

3. Sexual Harassment
It is illegal for an employer to leverage their position of authority to make sexual advances on an employee, as this amounts to harassment. Many such cases go unreported because of the inherent power imbalance in these workplaces’ relationships. However, if a boss or supervisor has ever harassed you in any way, you have grounds to file a personal injury claim against them. Harassment includes sexual advances, displaying sexual photos or videos, offering benefits for sexual favors, comments about a person’s figure or sexual orientation, physical touching, or derogatory jokes or epithets. If you have experienced any of these from an employer, you may have a viable claim.
