Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Shaheen & Gordon's personal injury and car & auto accident
practice encompasses a wide range of legal areas, including:
Auto Accidents: 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.
Birth Injuries: Preventable birth injuries caused by the negligence or carelessness of
physicians, nurses and other health care providers can be devastating.
Catastrophic Injuries: 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 Accidents: 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.
Motorcycle Accidents: 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
Nursing Home Injuries: Nursing homes and other assisted living facilities have a legal duty to
provide an acceptable level of care to residents and elderly patients.
When they fail to do so as a result of neglect or abuse, victims can suffer
serious physical injuries, emotional suffering, or even death. Because
this legal duty exists, victims and families have the right to take legal
action, hold nursing homes or care providers accountable, and seek a financial
recovery of their damages.
Trucking Accidents: 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.
Premises Liability: 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.
Injured? Follow These Helpful Tips
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.
At a Retail Store:
- Inform the store manager or other store employee immediately.
- If you need assistance for your injuries, make sure the store contacts
an ambulance for you.
- Get the names and addresses of any potential witnesses who saw the accident.
Hear from a Satisfied Personal Injury Client
"[Celine's] counseling and advice helped my husband and me to
make decisions along the way that not only helped with the case itself,
but also helped with us beginning to heal emotionally after the injury
I sustained. I pray to never have to use the services of a Personal Injury
attorney ever again, but if I do or if I know of anyone who needs one,
I most certainly would highly recommend Ms. Boyle."
