AUTO ACCIDENTS -Accidents involving cars are among the leading causes of injury and death in America. No matter whether the car accident injuries that you sustained were the fault of a distracted driver who was texting while driving or a rear-end accident caused by a drunk driving, you should not be forced to suffer in silence. These are serious injuries that could forever alter your future. In addition to compensation for “pain and suffering”, you might be entitled to lost wages, medical bills, lost future earnings, rehabilitation costs, loss of consortium, etc.
PREMISE LIABILITY- Owners of property can be held liable should a visitor suffer an injury or illness that could have been avoided through preventative measures. For example, should a violent crime occur because an owner did not provide adequate security, they could be held partially responsible for the injuries sustained. Similarly, if an owner did not clean up waste, and a visitor tripped and fell, they could also be held responsible.
SLIP/TRIP AND FALL CASES- Did you trip / slip and fall on a slippery / uneven / cracked surface? The owner of the property where you slipped / tripped and fell is liable for your injuries. If this surface was not properly maintained and was a potential hazard, then the owner of the property could be liable for the incident. Loose handrails, lack of proper “Wet Floor” cautionary signs, broken/cracked sidewalk as well as construction zone safety code violations can all result in debilitating slip and fall injuries. Homeowner’s insurance or property liability coverage is there to pay for your medical bills, any needed physical therapy and lost wages if you can’t return to work.
PRODUCTS LIABILITY -If you have suffered from a defective product, you could likely have grounds to pursue what is known as a product liability case. This can involve everything from defective tire and can even involve product recalls for medical devices.

MEDICAL MALPRACTICE- We are placing our trust into the hands of medical professionals every time that we visit a doctor’s office, go to a hospital or otherwise deal with a professional in the medical industry. Should these professionals be negligent, careless or reckless, they can cause serious injuries from things such as the failure to diagnose, medication errors, misdiagnosis and errors in the emergency room or surgery. We are prepared to hold these professionals responsible for the damage that they have caused and will seek full financial compensation.
DOG BITES- Animals such as dogs are enjoyable companions; however, they are not always completely safe. There are several large breeds that are notoriously known to be aggressive, but they are not the only danger. Dogs of any breed, age or gender can be aggressive if they are handled, treated or restrained incorrectly. If you have been the victim of a dog bite, the owner of the animal could and should be held liable for their part in the incident.
BAD DRUGS- Have you taken a legal drug that was dangerous to your health? While consumers are lead to believe that every drug made available to them has been thoroughly tested, the simple truth is that there are drugs on the shelves that are simply not worth the risk. Remember, these drugs can easily lead to life-threatening side effects.
NURSING HOME ABUSE- As our loved ones enter into their golden years, we are often confronted with the need to place them into a nursing home or other care facility. This is simply done with the intentions of providing them more around-the-clock care and to ensure that they can live their lives to the utmost. However, some of these facilities can be downright negligent or even abusive.
