Types of Personal Injury Cases

The term “personal injury” is a very broad one that covers a variety of different case types. Victims of accidents or defective products of almost any type may be grouped together as “personal injury victims” although they may have very different cases. For example, there is not much similarity on the surface between someone who has become ill due to using a defective drug and someone who has suffered a brain injury from a slip-and-fall accident. Nevertheless, both of these types of cases are handled by personal injury attorneys. Essentially any accident that causes harm to a person can be classified as personal injury.

Barber and Associates, LLC are personal injury attorneys in Anchorage who want to work with those who have suffered injuries in all types of accidents. Here are some of the types of cases we handle:

  • Vehicle accidents. Whether you were injured on an ATV or motorcycle, while riding in a car, truck, bus, train or airplane, vehicle accidents are some of the most common personal injury types. You may also have been hit by a vehicle while you were a pedestrian or on a bicycle. Barber and Associates, LLC handles all types of vehicle accident cases and helps victims recover payments for medical bills, pain and suffering and other costs.
  • Product liability. Product liability can include anything that is made or manufactured and causes an injury. Product liability could include a machine that injures someone when it malfunctions, a drug or medical device that causes harm or any other item that hurts a person. Product liability can include defects in manufacture, design or even advertising if these defects cause personal injury.
  • On-the-job injuries. If you are injured on the job, you may have a workers’ compensation claim or a personal injury claim depending on the nature of your injuries and who is liable.
  • Injuries at sea. Maritime injuries are a special class of injury that must be handled by an attorney with experience in these matters. Barber and Associates, LLC can work with you on any case involving an injury at sea.
