Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents are the leading cause of personal injury cases in the United States. In most cases, these collisions occur because a driver is negligent in following traffic law.

  • Truck/tractor trailer accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Airplane accidents
  • DUI accidents

Medical Malpractice

When doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals cause injury or death to patients, personal injury claims against these individuals can be awarded if they were proven to be negligent. Medical malpractice cases are often lengthy and complex due to the varying liability rules and damage caps that exist for each state. Examples of bodily injury that may occur due to medical malpractice are:

  • Organ injury (i.e. brain injury)
  • Spine injury or paralysis
  • Damage to the skeletal system (i.e. broken bones)
  • Muscular injury
  • Burns

Both public and private property must be kept reasonably safe for people to occupy. When unsafe property conditions result in injury, a capable premises liability attorney can hold the owner accountable. Their legal responsibility is determined by the status of the individual who was injured, such as if they were invited to the property or were trespassing. Some examples of premises liability are:

  • Slip-and-fall accidents
  • Workplace accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Swimming pool/drowning

Wrongful Death

Legal action may be available to a spouse, or other relatives, of someone who is killed by the negligence or wrongdoing of another. Family members who are suffering monetarily as the result of the death can file a wrongful death lawsuit. These cases typically occur after criminal prosecution and compensation may result even if the person is found not guilty of committing a crime due to a lower standard of proof.
