Types of Personal Injury Claims

Motor Vehicle Accidents: With screeching tires and a blare of the horn, a car accident can dramatically change your life. If you’ve been involved in a car accident where another driver was operating a vehicle recklessly, driving under the influence, or driving while distracted, you may be eligible for compensation.

Defective Products: When you purchase a product, you have the right to assume its general safety. Companies are responsible for thorough quality testing to ensure that defective or flawed equipment isn’t released to the public and that sufficient instructions and warnings are provided if there is a potential for harm. When companies fail to comply, it can result in serious injuries or even deaths, where victims are eligible to collect restitution.

Premises Liability: From wet floors and icy parking lots to dog bites and cracked sidewalks, property owners may be responsible for the injuries you or a loved one incurred while on their premise. Rarely are two incidents alike, and these generally involve a great deal of investigation and legal work to reach a fair and just compensation.

Medical Malpractice: Poor medical treatment can drastically affect your overall health and can include things such as incorrect operations, exposure to infections, providing the wrong dosage or type of medication, and other types of medical errors. Whether it’s an individual doctor or nurse, or an entire organization, we’ll help you find the parties responsible for your malpractice injury.

Defective Medical Devices and Dangerous Drugs: Sometimes, the very devices and drugs that are meant to make us better can become detrimental to our health and wellbeing. This can result in additional surgeries, illnesses, deformities, birth defects, and more. If you believe you’ve been a victim of faulty devices or drugs with adverse effects, you may be owed for your losses.
