Personal injuries are extremely common today. Whether a pedestrian is walking down the street and is hit by a driver who ran the red light, or a customer is shopping at a home goods store and a large box falls on them, injuries are all around us.

There are a variety of categories that fall under personal injury claims, to name a few there are: dangerous drugs, car accidents, falling merchandise, nursing home abuse, slip and fall injuries, dog bites, wrongful death and many more. Our firm has had the opportunity to work with many unique situations, and we are ready to help you fight for yours. With the majority of our society relying on motor vehicles as a method of transportation, more and more car accidents happen daily. Many situations can lead to an accident, for example distracted drivers that are texting or talking on the phone are less inclined to pay close attention to the road and as a result they may cause an accident. Drunk driving is unfortunately a common cause for accidents, and depending on the impact of the crash, the results may be fatal. Our firm is here to represent you or a loved one that has experienced a tragedy such as this.
Surprisingly, nursing home abuse is growing to be more common today as well. Nurses are neglecting their patients by not giving them the proper medications and treatments or they are failing to help their patients maintain proper cleanliness. Sadly, there was a recent case that involved the death of an older woman after she was left to rot in her own stool for weeks. Her nurse never cleaned her bed pan, and by the time she complained of discomfort, the bacteria had eaten through her skin so badly that it killed her. This is just one of many tragic stories that happen to patients in nursing homes. Sexual abuse is actually common as well as malnutrition, medical errors, and forceful restraint among many others.
Believe it or not, dog bites happen excessively all over the world. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there are over 4.5 million dog bites every year, in the United States. Many times these bites cause no real damage, though there are situations in which emergency care is required due to the force and persistence of the animal. Sadly, every year over 30,000 victims are required to have a form of reconstructive surgery in order to fix their wounds and a handful of people are killed as well. Dog bites often occur when owners are not adhering to the laws about having their animals on a leash. The rules are created for the very purpose that a nice home dog may not act the same way towards a stranger.
Wrongful death cases occur for various reasons, whether it is a victim died after being hit by the drunk driver or the doctor failed to perform their surgery properly; the list goes on. Wrongful death claims are filed when family members believe that their loved one shouldn’t have lost their life, and with our firms help we will so to it that family members watch justice take place, but that they receive the compensation they deserve for their loss.
