Auto Accidents

Automobile accidents are the most popular cause of personal injury claims, and whether you were the driver or passenger in a car accident, or even if you are a pedestrian involved in a car accident, you could be entitled to compensation for pain, suffering and injury caused by a road traffic accident that was not your fault.

Workers Compensation

We routinely represents those injured while working at their jobs. In those type of cases, the insurance carrier is responsible for paying your medical bills at 100%, providing temporary disability if you are out of work for a period of time, and, most importantly, compensating for any permanent injury you have sustained. We have recovered compensation for burns, fractures, chemical inhalation, and most injuries sustained while working. We also protect your future rights to re-open the case if your injury progresses or you need further medical care.

Slip and Fall

Slip and fall injury accidents are a type of "fall down" accident that occurs when the interface of the victim's shoe and the floor fails. In a slip and fall injury lawsuit, both the property owner and the slip and fall victim can be held to varying degrees of responsibility or "comparative fault" based on the owner's duty to keep the property safe and the victim's duty to exercise ordinary care while walking on potentially slippery surfaces.

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice claims are not always valid with every medical injury and they do not always provide a basis for a medical malpractice law claim. To prove malpractice, i.e., to establish your health care provider's liability, you must have expert medical malpractice testimony that no reasonable health care provider would have done what yours did and that your health care provider's negligence was a cause of injury or death. If you establish liability, then you are entitled to medical malpractice damages. Additionally, you must file your lawsuit with a malpractice attorney or a malpractice lawyer within the statutory time period or "statute of limitations" established by state medical malpractice law for medical malpractice claims. Please read on regarding medical malpractice to find a medical malpractice attorney, medical malpractice lawyer or access more information.

Defective Product Cases

the manufacturer of a product owes the consumer the obligation to "manufacture" and "design" a product that is reasonably safe. If the product is "unreasonably dangerous" or if it is "unsafe for reasonably foreseeable uses," then the manufacturer is liable for injuries that are caused by the product.

Social Security Disability

If you can no longer maintain employment due to a physical or mental disability and are considering applying for or appealing a case for Social Security Disability Benefits, the best course of action is to seek specialized legal representation to either guide you through the initial process or assist you with your appeal for benefits.

Divorce

If you're considering divorce, or you've been served with divorce papers, and feel you need legal assistance we can help explain your rights and your options and help you make good decisions right from the beginning. Mistakes you make today could impact the final order in your divorce, and you can't afford to take changes with things like custody of your children, child support, and possession of your home.

Bankruptcy

Bankruptcy is the section of federal law that allows persons in extreme amounts of debt to get a "fresh start" by reducing the amount of debt required to be paid as well as extending the time period in which it must be paid. The bankruptcy laws are popularly referred to by their chapter number which corresponds to the relevant chapter of the Bankruptcy Code. There are five different chapters debtors may file under, three of which are for individuals: Chapter 7 Liquidation, Chapter 11 Reorganization, and Chapter 13 Reorganization.
