PERSONAL INJURIESPersonal Injury Law (also known as Tort Law) covers situations in which an individual’s body, mind, or emotions are hurt due to someone else’s negligence or carelessness. It also covers life-altering injuries and wrongful death.
Most motor vehicle accidents (also referred to as car accidents or a traffic collisions) are caused by someone who is driving carelessly or is not following the rules of the road. They may hit or collide with another vehicle, a stationary object, a pedestrian, or an animal; causing property damage or severe injuries or even death. If you’ve been injured in an automobile accident, truck accident, bus accident or motorcycle accident, our lawyers are here to help you fight for lost wages, medical bills, and compensation for your pain and suffering.
Injuries can and do happen at daycare facilities and can range from minor accidents to serious injuries or even death. When an individual is injured as a result of a caregiver’s failure to take adequate precautions and/or to prevent reasonably foreseeable dangers, the daycare center may be held liable and required to pay for exorbitant damages. Unfortunately, in many cases the underlying problem is connected to daycare negligence with caregivers failing to act appropriately. Should that occur to you, give us a call and sleep worry free.
Placing an elderly loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility can be a heart-wrenching decision.

Unfortunately, injuries can and do happen at nursing homes and can range from minor accidents to serious injuries or even death. There are many signs of abuse and negligence in nursing homes and elderly centers such as malnutrition and dehydration, medications errors and even physical abuse. Our firm is dedicated for the rights of your elderly loved ones, and to fight for the appropriate compensation if those rights are violated in the form of negligence and abuse.
Slip and fall cases are a result of property owners who neglect to keep their premises reasonably safe and free of hazards, thus preventing people from becoming injured. Remember that not all injuries that occur on a property will lead to liability. Laws vary by situation and location and by state. When hazards exist due to the negligence of the owner, our firm can and will help you determine if legal action can be taken and if we can recover damages for you.
Workplace Injuries are injuries or illnesses that occur in the work environment and as a direct result of your responsibilities/tasks of your specific job. Many states define “workplace injury” as one that “arises out of and in the course of employment.” Most workplace injuries occurs because the work environment is unsafe, equipment may be defective, or the environment is contaminated with hazardous substances.
If a loved one is killed because of the negligence of a person or persons, you (the decedent’s heirs and other beneficiaries) may file a wrongful death lawsuit against those responsible for your loved one’s death. Especially if that individual was the primary source of income for the family. For example, a blow to the head during an altercation and that later results in death is an injury that is intentionally caused; a driver of an automobile who unintentionally causes the death of another may be held liable for negligence; an individual that neglects to enclose a swimming pool in his yard and a child is attracted to the pool and subsequently drowns; can be held liable for the omission or failure to act. We are committed to working hard to ensure that your family receives justice and the financial security that your family needs during this difficult time.
