In a free case evaluation, we will take the time to listen to your story and make an initial evaluation of the merits of your claim. Our fifty-five-year-old firm has handled hundreds of motor vehicle accidents, seeking compensation through negotiated settlement or jury trial.
We promptly investigate to preserve evidence and establish whether the negligence led to the crash. Our attorneys are familiar with the typical injuries and issues in car accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents. We also handle injuries caused by uninsured or underinsured motorists. We work with personal injury victims and their physicians to collect damages for medical expenses, lost wages, loss of quality of life, and future medical care.
Slip and Fall, Premises Liability
The owner or individual in control of property may be responsible for damages if you are injured due to negligent conditions. If you have suffered serious harm due to slipping, tripping, or falling, you may be entitled to seek damages. Premises liability may apply to businesses and private residences if the owner neglected slippery floors or an icy sidewalk, or if other dangerous conditions contributed to your accident.
There need not be a history of aggressive behavior for you to collect compensation for being bitten or attacked. A homeowner's policy may cover a dog bite claim, including damages for scarring, nerve damage, reconstructive surgery, and emotional trauma.
When an auto crash, construction accident or accident results in a fatality, family members are left with not only grief for their loss but often tangible losses. We offer compassionate support and legal counsel about your rights in holding the negligent party responsible. Spouses, children, and parents can sue for damages. In appropriate cases, damages may include wrongful death damages, including medical and funeral costs, loss of future income, and loss of consortium of the person.
