There are numerous types of accidents that result in serious and painful injuries to innocent victims. Car accidents, motorcycle accidents, truck accidents, slip and falls, nursing home abuse and medical malpractice all may lead to life-altering injuries that will deeply affect your future. Injuries, whether they are permanent or temporary, require immediate medical attention and are often extremely expensive. Unfortunately, the settlement you have been or will be offered by insurance is unlikely to cover the true costs of your injuries.
It is often necessary for victims to retain an experienced personal injury law firm in order to pursue just compensation for their injuries.

Serious and Catastrophic Personal Injury – We specialize in representing people who are victims of permanent severe or disabling injury due to another’s negligence or misconduct. Many of our clients have experienced serious burns, brain or spinal cord injuries, herniated disks, amputations, scars, nerve or eye injuries, debilitating fractures, and many other types of injuries. Our attorneys have helped people who have received these injuries from a long list of potential events, including automobile, motorcycle, or bicycle accidents, injuries or death as a result of a plane crash, or while simply walking down the street.
Our clients sometimes come to us because they were mauled or bitten by dogs or injured on another person’s premises, such as in stair collapses, walkway incidents, or construction site accidents. We have also helped people seriously injured by defective products or poisoned by exposure to toxic substances and have participated in mass toxic tort litigation. Recently, we have seen a surge in injuries sustained at nursing homes due to elder abuse. Additionally, we have helped families and victims of police misconduct. Because we have expertise in a broad range of injuries and their causes, we have proven strategies that work. We have a reputation for trial and settlement success and are not intimidated by any adversary.
Wrongful Death – Losing a loved one is a terrible experience. Lawsuits arise when circumstances leading to that loss could have been avoided. We have helped many clients who seek justice for their deceased family members. Although we cannot erase our clients’ grief, we can help them seek compensation because their lives are emotionally and financially impacted by their loss. Successful lawsuits may also bring about change so others will not be similarly affected.
Medical Malpractice – We are experienced in medical malpractice law and can help clients determine whether or not malpractice has occurred. When someone is injured as a result of the negligence or misconduct of a medical professional, a breach of trust has occurred.
Employment Law – Employment law covers a complex network of laws that controls how employers must treat employees, former employees, and applicants for employment. We have significant experience in interpreting and construing state and Federal statutes and case law in employment discrimination and wrongful termination. If you suspect you have been terminated because of your race, religion, gender, or age, you need quality representation to exercise your rights.
Elder Abuse – An increasing elderly population has led to an increased nursing home population, and with this has come to an increased incidence of nursing home negligence and abuse. Governmental agencies such as the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services help oversee the care and services provided by nursing homes and both federal and state governments have established uniform standards for nursing homes and ensure the protection and safety of patients. Unfortunately, despite these governmental agencies, over one million nursing home residents are abused in some manner each year. Such actions can include negligence and active abuse. Whether the abuse consists of recurrent negligence or a single incident that causes injury, the victim has a right to damages. In most cases, the nursing home in question can lose its certification for failing to supply the expected care leading to a loss of federal funding.
Nursing home abuse can include physical damage from falls, malnutrition or dehydration, bedsores, gangrene, aspiration pneumonia, over-sedation, poor medical care, or wrong medication. Just as damaging but more subtle, are lack of supervision, theft, abandonment, effective equipment, sexual assault, coercion, physical or mental abuse. All of these can lead to the injury or death of the nursing home patient.
Construction Accidents – Thousands of construction workers are injured or killed in construction site accidents each year. Construction companies must inspect each site with safety engineers and provide safety programs, but unfortunately, accidents still occur due to the inadequacy of these provisions. When a construction site accident occurs, the owners, architects, insurance companies, and manufacturers of equipment can be held responsible for inadequate safety provisions. The general contractor and all subcontractors are required to provide a reasonably safe site, to warn of hazards inherent in the site and work, to hire careful employees, coordinate job safety, and supervise compliance with safety specifications. Manufacturers of construction equipment are responsible for designing and maintaining safe products. Defective or dangerous products may include the following: scaffolding, cranes, power tools, derricks, hoists, conveyors, woodworking tools, ladders, winches, trucks, graders, scrapers, tractors, bulldozers, forklifts, backhoes, heavy equipment, boilers, pressure vessels, gas detectors and other types of construction equipment.
It is often possible to find liable third parties in the event of an accident or injury. Since most sites involve many subcontractors, it is very common to locate several potential third party Defendants. The lawyer may also consider claims against the general contractor, who may be responsible for the supervision and may be contractually responsible for the injury. In more complex cases, the legal principles of Agency and analysis of Corporate law may lead to sophisticated determinations as to who is technically an “employee” and who the “third parties” are in a given situation.
Product Liability – Our firm has years of experience and an excellent track record of representing individuals who have been injured as a result of an unsafe product that was designed, manufactured, sold, and/or furnished by a person or company. We assist those injured individuals in bringing their claims and being fairly compensated for their injuries. Our attorneys have represented individuals injured by machinery and tools, medical products and devices, motor vehicles, pharmaceutical products, recreational and other products.
Premise Liability – When someone is injured as a result of unsafe property or building conditions, they may have a right to make a claim for their damages against the owner of the property. All slip and fall accidents are covered by negligence law and deal with the concept of premises liability. Property owners have a “duty of care” to see that their property is safe. This includes ensuring that the building has no structural defects that could cause an accident, both inside and out. In some states, the property owner may also have a duty to reduce problem areas caused by weather. Structural defects can include loose floor mats, rugs, or tiles; water on the floor; badly lit stairs or steps; cracks or holes in sidewalks or parking lots. Weather-related hazards may include standing water and icy spots. A plaintiff or claimant also has a duty to exercise reasonable care, so if any action of yours contributed to the accident, you may share in the negligence.
If you experience a slip and fall accident, you should try to determine what made you fall and if it could have been anticipated and prevented. If anyone saw you fall, be sure you get the names and addresses of all witnesses. Try to note the conditions in the area – was the lighting poor, was there some substance that made you slip. If you did slip because of something on the floor, try to obtain a sample. Also, try to get pictures of the area. Report any such accident to the manager or owner and insist that they make a record of it.
It is your responsibility to prove that a hazard existed and that it was the cause of your accident.
