Personal Injury

A personal injury claim arises when a person has been injured as a result of another's negligence, recklessness, or intentional misconduct. Negligence is the failure to exercise the care a reasonable person would use under the same or similar circumstances. Reckless disregard for the safety of others is the standard that courts use to permit punitive damages in a personal injury case. Serious injuries often happen suddenly, resulting in life-threatening bodily harm. For example, data from the CDC indicates that approximately 2 million individuals have been forced to live the remainder of their lives with the loss of a limb, because of a serious injury. Often, these injuries are the result of the negligence of another party and will require a lifetime of medical care. Serious personal injuries can result from critical trauma including motor vehicles accidents, medical mistakes, and other acts of negligence. Personal injury claims allow the injured party to seek compensation for their injuries.

Product Liability

Nearly every day of our lives, we use any number of consumer products. We trust that these products are safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Dangerous products can cause serious injuries. A product liability claim can arise when a product is offered to the public that is defective and unreasonably dangerous, and which causes personal injury or death. The product should be reasonably safe, not only for its intended use, but for any use that is reasonably foreseeable. Even if the product may not be defective or unreasonably dangerous, an injured party may still seek recovery if the product failed to contain an adequate warning to the consumer.

Auto Accidents

Auto accidents are a leading cause of serious injury and death. Many car accidents could have been avoided had the driver exercised reasonable care. These types of accidents may involve temporary injuries, permanent injuries or death. Our firm's physicians and nurses evaluate the medical implications of these injuries and ascertain the extent of damages in order to establish compensation values while our attorneys work to demonstrate negligence by the offending driver.
