When Do I Have a Personal Injury Claim in Washington, D.C.?

You may have a personal injury claim when you have suffered harm due to the negligent, reckless, or intentional actions of another party. A viable personal injury claim requires proof that the responsible party's actions caused your injuries and resulted in financial losses, such as medical bills, lost wages, or property damage. In such cases, you have the right to take legal action against the responsible party. 

Types of Personal Injury Claims

Many personal injury claims are rooted in negligence. “Negligence” refers to a failure to behave with the level of care that someone of ordinary prudence would have exercised under the same circumstances. Simply put, it's the disregard for the safety or rights of others. This can take many forms, such as distracted driving leading to a car accident, a property owner failing to fix a hazardous condition leading to a slip and fall, or a manufacturer releasing a defective product without adequate safety testing.

Our Washington, D.C. personal injury attorneys are prepared to represent you in cases involving many types of negligence, including those involving:

  • Car accidents. If you were in an accident caused by another driver’s negligence or recklessness, that driver is likely liable for your injuries. Negligent behaviors that frequently cause car accidents include texting while driving, driving while intoxicated, speeding, and failing to follow traffic rules. 
  • Defective products. Manufacturers, distributors, and retailers have a duty to ensure that their products are safe for use. If you were injured by a product’s design flaw, manufacturing defect, or lack of adequate usage instructions or warnings, you may have a case under product liability law.
  • Dog bites. The District of Columbia observes "strict liability" rules when it comes to dog bites. This means that a dog's owner is liable for any injuries caused by their dog regardless of whether they were aware of the dog's capacity for dangerous behavior. A dog’s owner may not be liable if you provoked the dog before the attack or were not legally present on the property where the attack occurred. 
  • FedEx accidents. If you suffered injuries in a collision involving a FedEx truck, you may potentially be able to take legal action against FedEx itself if the company’s negligence caused or contributed to the accident. 
  • Medical malpractice. Medical malpractice can occur when a healthcare provider, such as a doctor, nurse, or hospital, fails to provide the standard of care expected in their profession, resulting in patient harm. Examples can include misdiagnosis, surgical errors, medication mistakes, or inappropriate treatment. In such cases, proving that the healthcare provider's negligence directly led to your injuries is key.
  • Motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle accidents often result in more severe injuries compared to other vehicular accidents. This is largely due to the exposed nature of motorcycles. Unlike occupants in a car or truck who have the protective shell of their vehicle to cushion the impact of a collision, motorcycle riders are directly exposed to the force of a crash.
  • Truck accidents. Truck accidents present a unique set of challenges and are often more dangerous than other vehicular collisions. Understanding liability in truck accidents can also be more complicated than in car accidents due to the number of potentially involved parties. Depending on the facts of the case, the truck driver, trucking company, truck maintenance company, cargo loaders, or manufacturers of the truck’s components could potentially bear some responsibility for the accident, making the process of determining fault less straightforward. 
  • Wrongful death. When a person's death is caused by the negligence, recklessness, or deliberate wrongdoing of another, the personal representative of the deceased may bring a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of their estate and surviving family. This kind of claim seeks compensation for the survivors' losses, including as lost wages the deceased would have earned, lost companionship, and funeral expenses.

Our aggressive advocacy can help you get the compensation you deserve. Call (301) 450-5742 to speak to our Washington, D.C. personal injury attorneys today.
