We handle all types of personal injury and accident cases, including those involving:

Auto Accidents

When you've been injured in an auto accident, dealing with the insurance companies and medical bills can oftentimes be a substantial burden. To make matters worse, insurance companies often try to take advantage of auto accident victims by preying on their lack of knowledge about the law to compensate them as little as possible for their injuries. To combat this, you need an experienced and seasoned legal representative to advocate on your behalf to secure you the compensation that you deserve for your pain and suffering as a result of your accident.

We can help you with any type of injury resulting from a car, truck, motorcycle or other type of motor vehicle accident. Common injuries as a result of an auto accident are:

  • Soft tissue damage
  • Bone fractures or breaks
  • Brain injuries and head trauma
  • Abrasions and contusions
  • Psychological damage such as emotional distress, loss of enjoyment and loss of consortium

Slip and Fall

A slip-and-fall injury can happen almost anywhere at any time. These injuries are commonly a result of property owners negligently maintaining their property by allowing a dangerous condition to exist without being remedied. If you slip and fall on someone else's property and you believe that you were not at fault, or that you should have been warned about the condition of the property, contact a personal injury attorney immediately so that you can be adequately compensated for your injuries. It is possible that you can be compensated for your lost wages and medical bills that resulted from your injury.

Medical Malpractice

When you report to a health care provider for medical treatment, you trust them to perform the treatment quickly and effectively. However, in some rare circumstances, the health care provider is negligent in their care and the patient is injured as a result of this. Statistically, between 15,000 and 20,000 medical malpractice claims are brought against doctors every year, and the compensation awarded the victim averages over $200,000. If you have been injured as a result of your health care provider's negligence, your first step should be to contact a personal injury attorney who will zealously advocate on your behalf to secure you the compensation that you deserve.

Construction Accidents

Construction workers are exposed to a myriad of dangers on the work site, and they face the highest fatality rate of any industry in the United States. Injuries that result from a construction accident are most commonly the result of falls, burns, electrocution, and exposure to asbestos and other toxic chemicals. These grievous injuries can often leave the victim unable to work, and sometimes they are either permanently injured or killed as a result of the accident. If you have been injured by a construction accident, a personal injury attorney will fight on your behalf to collect damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, physical pain, and emotional distress.

Wrongful Death

A wrongful death claim is filed after someone has died as a result of someone else's negligent behavior. While the shock and tragedy of the wrongful death is fresh, going to court to sue the responsible party can seem like an insurmountable burden. If you have lost a loved one or someone close to you, you deserve to be represented by someone who is compassionate and understanding, who will advocate on your behalf and offer you expert legal counsel during this difficult and trying time.

Workers' Compensation

If you are injured on the job, you could be entitled to workers' compensation benefits. These benefits can be obtained if you are injured, become ill or die as a result of your work. However, the process for obtaining these benefits is not always straightforward. Hiring a workers' comp attorney will help you through this labyrinthine process to make sure your benefits are applied for in a correct and timely manner, and to make sure you are compensated appropriately for your injuries.

Defective Drugs

The pharmaceutical industry is heavily regulated, and drugs that enter the market are required to undergo extensive clinical trials before they are approved for general use. However, sometimes these drugs have negative effects that are not discovered before they are released to the public. Injuries that result from defective drugs can take almost any form, and they are most commonly caused by pharmaceutical companies failing to warn the public about the dangers of their drugs or by their failure to properly safeguard against them. If you have been injured by the use of a defective drug, contact a personal injury attorney immediately to have your injuries properly compensated.

Product Liability

Manufacturers, distributors, suppliers and retailers of products that are made available and sold to the public can be held responsible when those products are defective. A product liability suit can be brought for the breach of the product's warranty, negligence in the manufacture and distribution of the product, or under strict liability where the manufacturer is held directly responsible for defects inherent in the product. If you have been injured as a result of a defective product, contact a personal injury attorney immediately to hold the faulty product's creators responsible for their wrongdoing and to adequately compensate you for your injuries as a result of using that product.

Nursing Home Negligence

Increasingly, Americans are turning the elderly over to nursing homes to manage their care instead of having them cared for in-home. While it is unfortunate, senior citizens are frequently the subject of negligence and abuse as a result of their stay in a nursing home. Injuries as a result of nursing home negligence can take the form of physical abuse, emotional abuse, and even financial fraud and exploitation. These cases require patience, dedication, and understanding. If you or a family member has been injured as a result of nursing home negligence, contact a personal injury attorney immediately to have your injuries handled responsibly and efficiently, so that you and your loved ones are treated with care and respect.

Toxic Substances

Whether caused by your work, or by independent exposure, grievous injuries can result from being exposed to toxic and dangerous substances. These substances can cause permanent injuries and, in some cases, even death. Examples of common toxic substances include asbestos, mold, benzene, fumes, mercury, and lead. If you have been injured as a result of your exposure to these or other types of toxic and dangerous substances, contact a personal injury attorney immediately to have your injuries adequately compensated.

Lead Paint Poisoning

While great attempts have been made to outlaw the use of lead paint, some older buildings still have lead paint on the walls. This is most dangerous to children, as lead poisoning can lead to:

  • Learning disabilities
  • Brain damage
  • Attention deficit disorder (ADD)
  • Attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD)
  • Anti-social behavior
  • Major organ failure
  • Coma
  • Wrongful death

If you or a family member has been injured as a result of lead paint poisoning, contact a personal injury attorney immediately to have your injuries compensated.
