- Personal Injury
A person who has suffered a personal injury may be entitled to compensation for their injury. Legal responsibility, or liability, will rest with the person who caused the injury. Even if a person may have partly caused their own injury, they can still get compensation from anyone else who may have contributed to causing the injury. Compensation can include payment for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
- Truck Accidents
A collision between a commercial truck and a passenger vehicle can result in serious, even fatal injuries. Due to the high level of insurance coverage that trucking companies are required to carry and the potential exposure trucking companies face, trucking related accidents are heavily disputed.
- Products Liability
Consumer products are not always properly designed, manufactured, tested or labeled for safe use. The law is specific about the expectations a consumer has when using a product and when a serious personal injury or wrongful death results, the injured person, or their family, have the right to seek compensation for lost wages, medical bills and punitive damages.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents
A failure to use reasonable care when operating an automobile is considered negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay damages caused by their negligence. An individual injured in an automobile accident may bring a lawsuit to recover their damages.
- Dog Bites / Animal Attacks
An injury resulting from an animal can be devastating both physically and psychologically and may result in scarring, disfigurement, nerve damage and muscle damage. If you are injured as a result of a dog bite, or animal attack, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your physical, emotional and financial losses.
- Wrongful Death
A wrongful death occurs when a person is killed due to the negligence of another individual, company or entity. An action for wrongful death belongs to the decedent's immediate family members. Financial injury is the main measure of damages in a wrongful death action, such as the loss of financial support, loss of services provided, and medical and funeral expenses.
- Premises Liability
If a dangerous condition exists at a business or residential property, the property owner has an obligation to correct the condition or warn others of the dangerous condition. There are numerous ways people can be injured due to dangerous premises conditions, including: a spill on a floor, a poorly designed or constructed stairway, or merchandise falling from a store shelf.
- Funeral Home Negligence
Funeral home negligence occurs when professionals at crematories, cemeteries and funeral homes commit any of the following: theft, commingled ashes, abuse to the decedent's body, improper storage, improper refrigeration, incorrect or no enbalming procedure, improper or incorrect bural, misplacement of the decedent's personal property, misplacement of the decedent's ashes or body—resulting in damage and disrespect to the decedent body and emotional trauma to their surviving loved ones:
- Day Care Negligence
Negligence occurs when a person violates a statute or regulation that has been enacted for people's safety. This statute or regulation violation is negligence as a matter of law. To establish a claim for day care negligence, you must prove that the day care had a duty of care, breached the duty of care, and then because of that breach, caused an injury to your child.
