Areas of Practice
Among one of the top causes of personal injuries, car accidents can happen
at any time and place. Even minor fender benders can cause serious injuries,
such as neck, spine, or back trauma. If you have been involved in a car
accident that was caused by no fault of your own, speak with an attorney.
Unlike collisions with small vehicles such as cars or motorcycles, accidents
that involve 18-wheeler tractor trailers can yield catastrophic damages.
Commercial truck drivers are held to high professional standards, so if
a negligent truck driver has caused you or a loved one injuries, you could
have a claim.
One of the most common causes of workplace accidents, premises liability
claims can arise due to an accident that occurred on a property that was
negligently maintained. Property owners are required by law to keep a
property free of known hazards or dangers to guests or tenants. If you
were injured due to negligent property maintenance, you can seek legal
action for your damages.
As consumers, the last thing we ever expect is to suffer serious injuries
due to a product that was manufactured with defects or distributed despite
the lack of proper product testing. Product liability claims can arise
from a range of products, including auto parts, home appliances, or even toys.
There are few things more heartbreaking than losing a loved one due to
the negligent or reckless acts of another person. In these circumstances,
however, the surviving family members can pursue legal redress for the
wrongs that have been done to them. If you have lost your loved one, speak
immediately to a lawyer who can represent you during a wrongful death claim.
If you have been injured at your workplace, you could be eligible for
workers' compensation. Most employers are required to provide insurance
coverage if an employee is injured or harmed at the workplace. If you
have suffered damages or if your loved one was harmed due to workplace
negligence in a coal mine or other industry, speak immediately with our firm.
Insurance Bad Faith
When you sign a contract with your insurance company, you establish a
contractual relationship. As a term of your insurance policy, you will
probably pay premiums for coverage in the event of an accident. When your
insurance company fails to provide its services, denies coverage, or delays
payments, these you could have a case for an insurance bad faith claim.
Social Security Disability
In circumstances in which you have been catastrophically injured or have
suffered severe damages that left you unable to do the type of work that
you did before, you may be eligible for social security disability. Speaking
with a knowledgeable attorney can be a great place to start to determine
if you can receive this sort of financial support.
