Shaheen & Gordon's personal injury and car & auto accident practice encompasses a wide range of legal areas, including:
Auto accidents have become a daily occurrence on the roads and highways of America. Victims who suffer injuries in accidents caused by other drivers may be able to recover compensation through personal injury claims.
Preventable birth injuries caused by the negligence or carelessness of physicians, nurses and other health care providers can be devastating. Parents have legal recourse to file personal injury claims on the basis of medical malpractice.
Injuries that necessitate serious medical procedures or treatment, or result in long-term care can be considered catastrophic injuries. Aside from severe physical damage, catastrophic injuries also have the potential to create extensive financial and emotional burdens.
Construction sites are held to strict regulations regarding the health and safety. When sites or managers fail to promote safe working environments free from preventable harm, injured construction workers or injured bystanders can pursue legal actions.
With some of the highest injury and fatality rates, motorcycle accidents nearly always necessitate the monetary compensation that is awarded through successful personal injury claims. Unfortunately, insurance companies often do everything in their power to pay motorcycle riders as little as possible.
Massive freight bearing machines such as 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, and tractor trailers share the roads with pedestrians, motorcycle riders and others in passenger vehicles. Due to the disparity in size, accidents involving trucks commonly result in severe injuries that result in medical and personal complications.
Slip and Falls
Slip, trip, and fall accidents are among the most common type of injury causing accidents that occur on another's property. When it can be proven that these accidents were caused by a property owner's negligence or failure to provide safe conditions, the owner or its insurance company can be held liable for compensating victims.
Doctors, nurses and others in the health care industry are required to uphold certain standards of practice. When they fail to do so or act negligently, injured patients can seek a recovery of their damages by filing medical malpractice claims.
Premises owners are required by law to ensure that their facility, business or property is safe and healthy for guests and visitors. When invitees are injured as a result of their failure to meet these standards, victims can pursue legal actions against them.
HELPFUL TIPS IF YOU ARE IN AN ACCIDENT
- At Work:Tell your supervisor immediately - don't wait, no matter how minor you think your injury is. Fill out a First Report of Injury which should be available right there at work, get the names and phone numbers of all persons who witnessed the injury. Remember, if you get hurt at work, nobody needs to be at fault in order to get Workers' Compensation. Simply stated, you only need to show that you hurt yourself while working.
- In a Car:If you are severely hurt in a car accident, wait for help to arrive. Make sure the police are contacted. Get the name, address, license and insurance information from the other party. Get names and phone numbers of any witnesses if possible. Contact your insurance carrier as soon as possible.
