Types Of Personal Injury Claims
Our personal injury lawyers have helped injured victims in personal injury claims involving:
Auto accidents: Thousands of people are injured or killed in car accidents every day. If you’ve been hurt by a drunk driver or someone who was driving negligently, you may be entitled to compensation.
Truck accidents: Due to their large size and weight, when 18-wheelers and other types of commercial vehicles are involved in crashes, catastrophic injury and death are more likely to occur.
Motorcycle accidents: Because they have no protection surrounding them, motorcyclists are more vulnerable to severe injury and death than other motorists. We’ve recovered compensation for injured victims in numerous motorcycle injury cases.
Bicycle and pedestrian accidents: Bicyclists and pedestrians are also susceptible to serious injury or death when struck by a motor vehicle. Distracted driving is often a major cause of these types of accidents. If you’ve been hurt or have lost a loved one, we can help.
Slip, trip, and fall accidents: These types of accidents fall under the legal umbrella of premises liability. Businesses and property owners have a responsibility to maintain their premises and keep it safe for all who enter. If they fail to do this and you’re injured, they may be liable for your damages.
Defective products: Manufacturers, designers, distributors, and retailers have a legal obligation to ensure their products are safe for consumer use. If you suffered an injury due to a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation.
Third-party workers’ compensation claims: If an injury at work was caused by a defective tool, equipment, machinery, or product, the designer, manufacturer and distributor of that product may be liable. It’s also important to note that if your employer failed to provide a safe workplace, they may be liable for your injuries as well.
Dog bites: Animal attacks and dog bites can lead to permanent physical and psychological injury. If you or a loved one has been injured in an animal attack, its owner may be liable for your injuries.
Wrongful death: When someone dies due to another person’s negligence or intentional act, a wrongful death claim may be appropriate. If you’ve lost a loved one, our personal injury lawyers can evaluate your case and determine whether you have a viable wrongful death claim.
