Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Injuries can occur due to negligence on the part of someone else in various circumstances. Some of these include:

  • Motor vehicle accidentscrashes involving cars, trucks, and motorcycles result in catastrophic injuries. Many factors can be responsible, including distraction, use of alcohol or drugs, and reckless behaviors such as speeding.
  • Slips, trips, and falls—accidents can occur when a premise is not properly monitored and maintained. Spills in a store, improperly built staircases, and damaged floors or carpeting in office buildings are just a few potential premise injury sources.
  • Dangerous pharmaceutical drugs—we’re ready to fight if you or a loved one have been harmed by using dangerous or defective drugs such as Ambien, Lexapro, Paxil, Wellbutrin, and Zoloft.
  • Defective medical devices—the medical industry has many products, such as pacemakers, hip replacements, and defibrillators, designed to assist in healing, but a serious injury can result when they fail.
  • Aviation accidents—can involve commercial airliners, helicopters, or private jets.
  • Maritime accidents—our firm works on cases for barge workers, oil rig workers, and injured sailors.
  • Wrongful death—emotional closure and financial compensation are what we will seek if your loved one has died due to another party’s negligence or wrongdoing.
