A personal injury claim exists any time you sustain an injury due to someone else’s negligence. The standard of negligence is breached when another person, or entity (e.g., a corporation), breaks the law or fails to behave in a reasonable manner under the circumstances. If these actions result in you sustaining an injury, physical and/or psychological, then you likely have a valid personal injury claim and need to speak with an attorney immediately. Personal injury claims also include intentional bad acts, such as assault and battery, elder abuse, etc., in addition to dog bites.
Unfortunately, the frequency and severity of vehicle collisions is on the rise. If someone failed to drive their vehicle safely, or entrusted a vehicle with someone they should have known posed a hazard (e.g., an impaired driver), then that person will be held liable for ALL of the injuries and financial damages you sustained from the collision. It is important to speak with an attorney as soon as possible if you were injured in an automobile accident.
Slip and Fall
Falling onto the ground after slipping/tripping can result in extensive injuries. These types of cases are normally brought against property owners or commercial tenants who have failed to act reasonably to prevent the incident from occurring. These cases can be quite complex, and speaking to an attorney immediately is important to ensure correspondence is sent to the property owners/tenants demanding that valuable evidence not be destroyed or tampered with.
Losing a loved one due to the fact someone else broke the law or failed to act safely is devastating. These cases represent the most significant amount of loss a person can experience. Because of this, a wrongful death action must be immediately investigated, and the potential defendant(s) put on notice to not destroy valuable evidence. It is essential that an attorney be involved immediately to ensure those responsible are held accountable.
