Philadelphia, like any other big city, has its share of accidents. People are injured in many different ways. Regardless of how and why, if someone else is responsible for their injury, they may be entitled to damages. This is done through a tort system in the United States. There are some types of personal injuries that lead to lawsuits more often than others do. Read on for some of these common types of personal injury.
