Assisting Injury Victims

Suffering an injury can be emotionally, physically and financially difficult for the victim. The entire experience can be stressful and complex. We work to maximize monetary settlements for our clients so that they can focus on recovery efforts. Whether this means a settlement outside of court, or going to trial, we have the knowledge and skill to negotiate with insurance companies and fight for justice. Insurance companies keep talented attorneys on staff that defend personal injury claims. For this reason, hiring a personal injury attorney who does not have insurance and litigation experience can be a devastating mistake. Not only do we have over 30 years of litigation experience, we have a reputation with insurance companies for not accepting lowball settlement offers!

Seeking Compensation and Justice

An injury requires medical attention. This can include therapy, surgery, medications and other lengthy treatment, depending on the type and severity of your injury. As a result, medical bills can become very burdensome. As your personal injury lawyer, we will aggressively seek compensation for:

  • Hospital and other medical bills
  • Prescription costs
  • Lost wages
  • Property damage
  • Ongoing medical treatment
  • Future medical treatment
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability

Our firm represents individuals injured in matters of negligence involving:

  • Slips and falls
  • Torts: an injury caused by a civil wrong that was unintended
  • Premises liability: when injuries are sustained on someone else's property due to negligent upkeep or lack of security provided by the property owner
  • Products liability: when a defective or dangerous product causes an injury
  • Negligence: when a person acts in a careless manner, causing an individual to become injured
  • Car crashes
  • Truck accidents
  • Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
  • Dog bite cases

Different parties may be held responsible depending on the type of accident. The responsible party may be the owner of a business, another driver, a homeowner or a company conducting business. We investigate the circumstances surrounding your accident and obtain a clear understanding of who can be held accountable for damages.

Who is Liable for my Injury?

In many motor vehicle accident cases, the other driver is at fault. In those instances, our firm will negotiate with their insurance company and take action in order to obtain compensation on your behalf. Commercial vehicle accidents are more complex, as there may be several parties to be held accountable depending on the circumstances and status of the driver.

Possible parties to be considered include:

  • The driver;
  • The company for which the driver works;
  • The owner of the truck;
  • The facility that loaded the truck; or
  • The company responsible for the truck's contents.

If you were injured due to unmaintained property or by someone else's pet, you have the right to hold owners accountable. Property owners must keep their property safe and take measures to alert others of hazardous conditions. Failing to do so opens them up to liability. Animal owners are also responsible for training and handling their pets. These cases are all considered premises liability matters, and we will work with homeowner's and business insurance policies to obtain compensation for your injuries.
