Types of Cases Our Accident Lawyers Handle

There are many different ways in which you may be injured due to someone else’s negligence. A few examples of the types of cases our accident attorneys have successfully litigated include:

Accident Lawyers​Slip, Trip & Fall Accidents: These types of accidents fall under the legal umbrella of premises liability. Property owners and businesses have a legal obligation to keep their premises safe and may be liable for any injuries that occur due to their negligence. Dangerous conditions such as snow and ice, wet floors, loose rugs and carpets, and inadequate maintenance can all contribute to someone falling and being injured. Dog bites, swimming pool accidents, and poor security leading to assault or injury are also considered premises liability cases. Our slip and fall lawyers are well versed in handling such cases and achieving the best possible outcome for you.

Motorcycle Accidents: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists are 28 times more likely to suffer fatal injuries in an accident. Because they don’t have any protection surrounding them like other motorists do, riders are also more likely to suffer from catastrophic injuries such as amputation, broken or crushed bones, paralysis, brain injuries and other types of head, neck and spinal injuries. Costly surgeries, hospital stays, physical therapy and ongoing care can reach into the hundreds of thousands of dollars and permanently affect the injured victim’s quality of life.

All Auto Accidents Including Those Involving Big Rigs: Due to their heavy weight and large size, 18-wheelers can cause very serious injury or death when involved in accidents with smaller passenger vehicles. Inadequate maintenance, driving while under the influence, drowsy driving and improper loading of cargo are all major problems in the trucking industry. If you’ve been injured in an accident with a big rig, multiple parties may be responsible for your damages, including the driver, trucking company, maintenance provider and parts manufacturers. That’s why you need a top accident attorney to handle your claim. Our accident injury lawyers pursue all possible avenues to ensure you get the care and compensation you need.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Can I File A Personal Injury Claim If I Was Hurt At Work?

Although worker’s compensation usually prohibits injured workers from suing their employers, if you were hurt or lost a loved one due to defective equipment, tools or a dangerous toxic substance, you may be entitled to bring a personal injury lawsuit against the manufacturer and distributor of that product.

How Do I Know If My Claim Is Worth Pursuing?

In a personal injury claim, you must prove that a person or entity’s negligence caused your injuries. This involves four steps:

  1. Duty of Care–The person or must owe you a duty of care
  2. Breach–That duty of care was breached
  3. Causation–The defendant’s actions or inaction actually caused your injuries.
  4. Damages–You were harmed as a result of the defendant’s actions and require monetary compensation for your damages.

We assess these factors in relation to your specific circumstances to determine whether you have a valid personal injury claim. If you do, we can guide you through the process and assist you with recovering maximum compensation from start to finish.

Here are the steps to take after a slip and fall accident.
