Birth Injuries

If your baby was harmed or injured during the labor and delivery process, your child’s injuries may have been caused by negligence. Birth injuries are preventable most of the time. If your child has suffered from a birth injury that could have been prevented, you may have legal options.

Brain Injury

Brain injuries can cause permanent disabilities that can affect someone for their entire life. If someone was responsible for a brain injury that you or someone you love suffered from, it may be possible to take legal action.

Car Accidents

A car accident can result in devastating injuries and have serious financial implications. Was your crash caused by another driver who was negligent or reckless behind the wheel? Our law firm may be able to help you hold the responsible party accountable.

Distracted Driving Accidents

When a driver is distracted- whether they are distracted by a phone, conversation, or something else- and an accident results, you may be able to file a legal claim against the driver. Distracted driving accidents are far too common, and completely preventable.

Dog Bites

Dog owners have a legal duty to keep control of their animals at all times. If you were bitten or attacked by an unprovoked dog, you may have grounds for legal action.

Drunk Driving Accidents

If you or a loved one was involved in a car accident caused by a drunk driver, you may have grounds to file a personal injury lawsuit in addition to any criminal charges that may already be in place. Doing so may help ensure that driver never gets behind the wheel while intoxicated.

Medical Malpractice

When we visit a hospital or doctor’s office, we trust that we will be adequately taken care of. If you or a loved one was harmed or injured by a doctor, nurse, or other medical professional, it may be possible to file a lawsuit against the professional or facility if it can be proven that they failed to follow their duty of care.

Motorcycle Accidents

When a motorcyclist gets into an accident, they’re at a greater risk to suffer serious injuries than an occupant of a passenger vehicle. If you were injured in a motorcycle vs. car crash, our attorneys may be able to help.

Nursing Home Abuse

When we place a loved one into a nursing home, we trust they will be properly cared for. If, unfortunately, you feel your loved one may be getting abused, harmed, or otherwise neglected in a long-term care facility, reach out to our law office today.

Premises Liability

If you were injured on another’s property– whether it was a personal property or business- you may have legal grounds to file a lawsuit if it can be proven that you were injured due to negligence of the property owner.

Product Liability

Product manufacturers have a legal duty to ensure their products are safe for use when consumers use the item as intended. Any product warnings should clearly be in place. If you were injured when using a product as intended, you may be able to file a product liability claim.

Slip and Fall Accidents

If you were injured on another person’s property in a falling accident, you may have grounds for legal action. Businesses and homeowners have a legal duty to ensure hazards aren’t in place that may cause visitors to slip and fall.

Truck Accidents

Truck vs. passenger vehicle accidents almost always result in devastating injuries. Contact our law office if you’ve been injured in a trucking accident that may have been caused by the negligence of either the truck driver or the company.

Work Injuries

If you were injured in a workplace accident that was caused by employer negligence, you may have grounds to file a personal injury claim against the workplace. These types of claims are different than workers’ compensation claims and tend to be more complex.

Wrongful Death

If you lost a loved one in an accident or incident that could have been prevented, you may have grounds to file a wrongful death claim against the responsible party if it can be proven that negligence was the cause. Our lawyers may be able to assist.
