If you drive or travel in an automobile, odds are you will be involved in at least one automobile accident. Protect yourself by observing the rules of the road and also protect yourself against uninsured and underinsured motorists by purchasing the appropriate insurance coverage.
It is important to remember that insurance adjusters work for the insurance companies and not for the victims of auto accidents. Often adjusters will make offers at a very early stage in a claim - sometimes hours after the accident. They make these offers before the full extent of the injured person's injuries is known. The insurance company's goal is to give the victim as little money as possible. Insurance adjusters are paid to minimize the value of victims' claims, not to advise victims of their rights. For these reasons and many more, it is important that you obtain the legal advice of an attorney before signing anything.
Tractor Rig Accidents
Lawsuits based on accidents and collisions involving trucks, semis, tractor-trailers, or big rigs involve a complicated group of laws and large amounts of evidence. Because the trucking industry is heavily regulated, an accident involving a truck is significantly more complex than an automobile accident case. Based on our vast experience in representing plaintiffs in truck accident cases we know that an action can be brought against both the truck driver and the trucking insurance company. We have the experience and specialized knowledge to lead the investigation into the cause of the truck accident and to help you fight to obtain a fair settlement.
The victims of truck accidents are entitled to compensation for property damage (car repairs), medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and permanent injury or disfigurement.
Drunk Driver Accidents
Every life lost to a drunk driver leaves behind a shattered family. The grief and loss experienced may last for years as family members struggle to make sense of an accident that never should have happened. Of those who survive an accident with a drunk driver, many suffer severe and permanent injuries. These injuries include the loss of a limb, paralysis, quadriplegia, and brain injuries. The impact encompasses everything from the need for life-long medical care to the inability to work. This affects not only the injured individual but his or her family as well.
If you have been injured as a result of a drunk driving accident, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your injuries from the drunk driver and/or their insurer. This remedy is not limited to drivers and passengers of other vehicles, but extends to injured pedestrians, and even close family members of those injured under certain circumstances. Drunk drivers and those who served them alcohol may be liable for the devastating effects of accidents caused by drunk drivers. If you or someone you care about have been injured by a drunk driver, you should immediately contact a competent attorney.
Slip & Fall Claims
If you fall on someone else’s property, the property owner may be liable for your injuries. You need an experienced accident attorney to provide a competent evaluation of your case and engage the proprietor or the insurance provider(s).
We all have a basic duty to act in a safe manner given the conditions that we find ourselves in. With that said, property owners have a certain degree of responsibility in how they maintain their premises. Property owners must take reasonable steps to ensure that their property is free from dangerous conditions that would cause a person to slip or fall.
A slip and fall accident may involve various liable parties, such as property owners, managers, and sometimes multiple insurance companies. How do you know whom to contact? Having a reputable liability injury lawyer is crucial to your success in determining liability and, ultimately, in obtaining a favorable judgment and settlement.
Medical malpractice or medical negligence occurs when a doctor or other healthcare provider breaches his or her duty to a patient to perform treatment in accordance with the "standard of care." A medical malpractice lawyer is in an area of law that assists people who have been injured by the mistakes of health care providers, or the survivors of those who may have died as a result of the mistakes of health care providers.
Medical malpractice can occur in many different ways. Some major categories include, but are not limited to: birth injuries, misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis, improper or inappropriate treatment, botched surgeries, prescription errors, failure to refer, anesthesia complications, emergency room mistakes, and nursing home abuse.
Nursing Home Negligence
With the aging of America, more and more people are less able to take care of themselves and their affairs. In most situations, family, friends, for-profit corporations, and social organizations provide the care and guidance that elders need and deserve. However, in a growing number of cases, elders are being abused, physically, emotionally, and financially.
