Personal Injury

Personal InjuryIf someone is hurt by negligence of another person or business, they may claim for the personal injuries they sustained. The damages which may be available for personal injury claim include damages for pain and suffering, lost wages, lost earning capacity, mental anguish, and compensation for property damage. Your attorney can explain each type of damage and what must be proven to receive compensation. We represent individuals hurt in a number of ways, including: auto accidents, medical malpractice, defective products, on the job injuries, assault and battery and slip and fall accidents. Most personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that you are not charged directly for attorney's fees, but rather a percentage of the amount recovered for you is taken out of the recovery. The contingent fee structure can be more completely described at an initial consultation.

Defective Products

This office has years of experience representing individuals who have been injured as a result of an unsafe or defective product that was designed, manufactured, sold or furnished by a company or individual. It assists those injured individuals in bringing their claims and being fairly compensated for their injuries.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful DeathWrongful death is death caused by the fault of another person either through negligence or by intentional act. Spouses, children and parents can make a claim for damages against the wrongdoer. In some cases, even though a person is deceased, his or her estate may also have a claim for damages. Examples of wrongful conduct that may lead to death include: drinking and driving, manufacturing a defective product, building an unstable structure or failing to diagnose a fatal disease. We are very experienced in wrongful death lawsuits.

This office has handled hundreds of worker's compensation cases many of which have been successfully litigated through the appellate system in favor of the injured worker.
