Personal injuries happen all the time. There is no way of knowing when or how a person may get hurt. Participating in everyday activities can put you in danger of being injured. When a personal injury occurs, it is important to determine who is at fault and if negligence was involved, and it needs to be done sooner rather than later before the statute of limitations runs. We are experienced in the following areas:
When you are involved in a car accident, there will undoubtedly be some kind of injury that occurs. If it was a fender-bender, the injuries may be something like whiplash and neck pain, but when the accident is more severe, you could sustain life-threatening injuries. A personal injury attorney can help protect your rights and recover compensation that may be owed due to another’s negligence.
It is common to hear about product recalls for all types of products in the news. There are regulations and rules that demand a certain level of safety for products produced for general use. If you have been injured due to a faulty product, whether it is a car, a toy, an electronic device or another item, we can help with your case. It is important to consult a personal injury attorney to understand if the company who manufactures or sells the product can be held liable for your injuries.
Slip and Fall
You could be walking down an aisle in the store when you suddenly slip and fall, whether it is due to tripping over an obstacle or slipping on a wet spot. Either way, if the business is negligent, then you need to obtain the assistance of a personal injury attorney.
When someone passes away due to someone else’s negligence or misconduct, the surviving family members may sue for “wrongful death.” In this type of lawsuit, the survivors want to hold accountable whomever was responsible for their loved one’s death. There are limitations on how long one has to sue, as well as who may bring such a lawsuit, and they must be able to prove that loss of life was caused by someone’s wrongful or negligent conduct. It is possible to collect monetary damages for loss of financial support, loss of companionship, the survivors’ mental anguish, the Decedent’s pain and suffering, medical bills and funeral costs. Speaking with a personal injury attorney who is experienced in these matters can help you determine whether you have standing to file a wrongful death lawsuit.
