The most common types of personal injury claims are road traffic accidents, accidents at work, tripping accidents, assault claims, accidents in the home, on a cruise ship, product defect accidents (product liability) and holiday accidents. The term personal injury also incorporates medical and dental accidents (which lead to numerous medical negligence claims every year) and conditions that are often classified as industrial disease cases, including asbestosis and peritoneal mesothelioma, chest diseases (e.g., emphysema, pneumoconiosis, silicosis, chronic bronchitis, asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and chronic obstructive airways disease), vibration white finger, occupational deafness, occupational stress, contact dermatitis, and repetitive strain injury cases.
Automobile, Motorcycle, Trucking, and Recreational Vehicle Accidents
Automobile, motorcycle, and truck accidents are the leading cause of death for Americans aged 8 to 34, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as they cause one death every 12 to 15 minutes and injure more than 2.5 million people each year. While most accidents lead to less deadly results due to the negligence of another driver, you have right to hold that driver legally responsible for his or her actions regardless of the injury. We at iLG have successfully litigated cases for victims of automobile, motorcycle, trucking, and recreational vehicle accidents to the utmost satisfaction of their clients.
Premises Liability and Negligent Security
All landowners and land possessors (i.e. hotels, restaurants, stores, bars, clubs, etc.) have a legal duty to inspect, maintain, and secure their premises from dangerous conditions and foreseeable criminal activity. These types of cases range from a simple slip and fall at a store to an attack caused by intoxicated patrons at a bar. We at iLG have the legal know how to litigate these types of cases even in the most difficult situations.
Manufacturers, distributors and retailers are responsible to the public for the safety of the products they sell to them. Those entities are all legally responsible for injury or death caused by their products when their products are defective. Whether a product is defective may depend upon poor product design, a manufacturing mistake, or a failure to warn/instruct of foreseeable risks. We at iLG have the knowledge and experience to handle most product liability claims.
