Personal Injury - General Negligence

General Negligence Attorneys

General negligence is a broad term that can be applied to nearly all personal injury lawsuits.  Often these injuries can have significant physical, financial and emotional effects on you and your family.   Insurance companies want to make a profit by paying as little as possible for each claim.  If you or a loved one have been injured as a result of another’s negligence or misconduct, whether intentional or accidental, you have a right to seek fair compensation for your damages.

The personal injury attorneys at Swenson Law Group have the experience to help victims receive fair compensation for their injuries and losses.   Under a general negligence lawsuit, you can seek compensation for:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Current and future lost wages
  • Medical Negligence 
  • Product liability

Pain And Suffering

General Negligence causes pain and suffering. This is because when people are careless, they fail to take proper care of themselves or others. As a result, innocent people can get hurt or even killed.

For example, if a driver runs a red light and hits another car, the other car’s occupants may be injured or killed. The driver who ran the red light is guilty of Negligence and could be sued for damages.

Likewise, if a company fails to maintain its premises properly, someone could slip and fall, sustaining severe injuries. The company would then be liable for Negligence.

Negligence can also occur in medical settings. The patient could be harmed if a doctor prescribes the wrong medication or performs surgery on the wrong body part. The doctor would then be guilty of medical Negligence.

Negligence can have devastating consequences. It is important to take care to avoid causing harm to others through carelessness.

Product Liability

Product liability is the legal responsibility of a manufacturer or seller to compensate consumers for injury caused by defective products. It is important to note that product liability does not cover injuries caused by normal wear and tear or accidents.

There are three main types of product liability claims: manufacturing defects, design defects, and failure to warn.

Manufacturing defects occur when something is wrong with how the product was made. This could be a flaw in the materials used, a mistake in the assembly process, or something else that makes the product unsafe.

A design defect occurs when there is something wrong with the product itself. This could be a dangerous design flaw that makes the product more likely to cause injury or an issue with the labeling or instructions that makes it more likely to be misused.

A failure to warn occurs when the manufacturer or seller fails to provide adequate warnings about the risks associated with a product. This could be a failure to warn about a known danger or a failure to properly label a product so that consumers are aware of its risks.

Product liability claims can be complex and difficult to prove. An attorney can help you investigate the facts of your case and determine whether you have a valid claim against the manufacturer or seller of the defective product.

If a defective product has injured you, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other damages. Contact an experienced product liability attorney today to discuss your case.


Medical Negligence

Medical negligence can be a complex topic to understand. There are different types of medical negligence, and the distinction between them is important. Medical negligence is when a healthcare professional fails to provide the standard of care that a reasonable person would expect. The health care provider did not do something that a reasonable health care provider would have done or did something that a reasonable health care provider would not have done. Medical negligence can lead to injury or even death.

For example, if a doctor treats a patient without first getting their consent, this could be considered medical negligence. If a surgeon operates on the wrong body part, this could also be regarded as medical negligence. These are just two examples – there are many more instances where medical negligence can occur.
