Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Types of personal injury claims we can help you fight include:
- 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 as possible.
- 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.
