In addition to car accident, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, medical malpractice injuries, workplace injuries, traumatic brain injuries, slip and fall injuries and dog bites, there are many other kinds of injuries resulting from negligence. Many involve premises liability due to the negligence of a landowner; for example, when a swimming pool is not properly maintained or when there are improper safeguards to prevent accidental drowning. Other possible injuries could occur on play equipment, trampolines, or other sports equipment. Property owners have a duty to correct known hazards and to keep their premises in a reasonably safe condition.

To look at some of the categories mentioned in greater detail, one type of potential danger we all face is defective products in general. We take for granted the safety of virtually all the goods we use – vehicles such as motorcycles, trucks, SUVs, cars, bicycles, snowmobiles; appliances; tools, including power tools and tools with wheels such as lawnmowers and snow blowers; beverages and foods; toys; storage containers; over-the-counter and pharmaceutical medications; cleansers and household chemicals; sports equipment; …the list can go on. With all these products there is an implicit representation that they are safe if used or operated in the manner they are intended to be. When something goes wrong, serious injury, trauma, or even death can result. Numerous personal injury claims – and even class action suits – have resulted from defective products and materials.

The U.S. Census Bureau released estimates in 2020 showing that the United States 65-and-older population has grown rapidly since the last census in 2010. The 65-and-old population was the fastest growing age group with a growth of over 34 percent. The percentage is continuing to grow due to the Baby Boomer generation having been born between 1946 and 1964.

When parts or materials prove defective in a moving motorized vehicle or machine, the results can be catastrophic. Whether the vehicle is a car, SUV, light truck, pick-up truck, motorcycle, semi, RV, or tractor, accidents resulting from faulty design or workmanship often prove deadly – this is why well-publicized product recalls occur. Cars and other vehicles pose grave risks of injury if any safety feature is defective or fails under stress: airbags, seatbelts, door latches, or tires; also, if the roof crushes too easily, that can be a cause of terrible injury or death. A large number of personal injury lawsuits have resulted from such failures. One especially well known problem is sports utility vehicle (SUV) roll-overs; these vehicles are intrinsically more inclined to roll over in collisions or when a driver simply loses control in difficult weather conditions, posing a severe injury hazard to their occupants. Another well know problem was General Motor’s use of “side-saddle” gas tanks. General Motor’s engineers warned against the use of these twin 20 gallon tanks because they were mounted on the sides of Chevrolet pick-up trucks, outside the strong frame rails where they could be damaged easily. Chevrolet’s marketing department won out because wanted to be able to advertise the driving range that would be possible. Chevrolet concealed documents while fuel leaks and unnecessary fire related deaths increased as a result.

Spinal cord injuries, which often result from accidents on or with cars, motorcycles, bicycles, scooters etc. – or even falls from horses – are particularly complex, because the effects are often not apparent immediately. The most well-known case of delayed reaction is with whiplash, which generally happens when someone is hit from the rear. Symptoms can include headaches, referred pain to the shoulders, sensory disturbances, as well as back and neck pain. It is crucial that victims consult with a qualified lawyer specializing in such cases before giving any statements to insurance companies. It also is critical and always is reasonable to get checked out medically soon after an accident to make sure you get any necessary treatment and to document your harms.

I was hit by a hit and run vehicle as pedestrian. I went through the motions as instructed by the proper people. Hiring an attorney was not something I had realized I needed to do. After being in the Dr's office overwhelmed by the paperwork and pain someone said, your Attorney will do that for you. So I went on a hunt. If you are looking for an Attorney who you can actually talk to on the phone, Attorney Shute is your guy. He was always very professional and he explained everything in a way I always understood. He is patient, a good listener and aware of my injuries making me comfortable. I don't hesitate to tell people he's a great choice. And oh yes, we won my case.

Life-threatening and life-altering burn injuries constitute another category. Such injuries often take many years to heal (involving skin grafts and other costly procedures), sometimes leave massive scarring, and inflict a overwhelming pain, suffering, mental trauma, and cosmetic repercussions. Causes for burn injuries include fire, electricity, radiation, chemicals, hot liquids, manufacturing plant explosions, cooking accidents, disrepair of heating equipment, and many others. Some chemical fumes can burn the skin and the lungs with exposure.

Unfortunately, our world is fraught with danger, and Atty. Shute has seen many seemingly unlikely eventualities come to pass. Some of the possibilities include collapsed building roofs or walls when construction projects or shoddy building standards are the cause; falling bricks or other debris from building structures, medications mistakenly prescribed or with the wrong dosage indicated…the list of possibilities is virtually endless.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident or through some person or organization’s negligence or carelessness, you owe it to yourself to consult with an experienced, competent, and respected injury attorney.
