Each year for young people aged 0 to 19 alone, there are over 12,000 fatal injuries from unintentional accidents, with a further 9.2 million being sent to the emergency room with nonfatal injuries – according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
While these numbers vary for adults and every year brings a new set of challenges, it is safe to say that there are countless victims of personal injury cases each year around the country. From car accidents to workplace accidents to slip and fall cases and beyond, the negligence of others has changed the lives of millions of families over the years.

What a Personal Injury Lawyer Can Do for You
While there are certain standards for specific types of personal injury cases, every case is different. A Hawthorne personal injury lawyer will set out to work on every case with this idea in mind. After you retain the services of an attorney, they will begin investigating what happened in your case in the hopes of presenting your case in front of a court and getting you the compensation you might be entitled to.
Of the different types of investigations that may occur in a given personal injury case, a lawyer may work to prove negligence in your case by doing any of the following:
- Examining police records from the accident, which might indicate who was negligent in the accident. We can also look at photos and video from the scene of the accident to get a better idea of what happened.
- Looking at medical records, which may provide a potentially important trail of evidence related to the true nature of your injuries. By proving your injuries with documentation, the court may be more inclined to believe the victim’s claims. Medical records can also help show how an accident occurred, as a defendant may attempt to disprove claims.
- Bringing in forensic analysts, industry professionals, or accident reconstruction experts to shed light on how the accident occurred. By looking at the science behind an accident, the court may have an easier time determining who was truly at fault for the accident.
Here at Pintas & Mullins Law Firm, our team of attorneys is here to help our clients through the legal process. We will examine your case from every possible angle so we can not only attempt to prove who was at fault, but prove that you need to be compensated accordingly for any physical, mental, or financial suffering.

Common Types of Personal Injury Cases
Wherever there is an injury caused by someone’s negligence, there is the potential for a personal injury case. They occur every day in every city around the country, if not the world.
Basically, if someone else caused your accident to occur, either directly or indirectly, they may be held accountable for your pain and suffering. While you do not need a Hawthorne personal injury lawyer to pursue a claim for compensation in a personal injury case, some victims choose to retain their services because it gives them the peace of mind of knowing that there is a team out there fighting to prove their case while the victim can continue recovering.
According to the American Bar Association, personal injury cases not only include more common areas like automobile accidents, but other regions like medical malpractice and beyond. Ultimately, the real burden will fall on the victim to prove liability. Further, common types of personal injury cases can include, but may not be limited to:
- Defective products
- Premises liability
- Workplace accidents, including construction and heavy machinery accidents
- Dog bites or animal attacks
- Pedestrians being struck by vehicles
- Car, truck, or scooter accidents
- And more
