Personal Injury / Civil Rights
Personal injury victims suffer in so many unexpected ways. The physical pain resulting from the injury. The emotional toll the injury inflicts on the injured person and his/her family. The loss of the ability to work and earn income. Medical bills which deplete savings and cause further financial stress. The inability to engage in daily activities which are productive or bring joy.
When you or a loved one is injured due to the negligent or wrongful conduct of another person, you are entitled under the law to seek compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering, disability or loss of normal life, and loss of earnings. In the unfortunate instances when a loved one dies due to those injuries, both the estate of the deceased and family members may be entitled to compensation which also includes the loss of the family member.
My team and I have decades of experience in the following areas of personal injury:
Vehicle Collisions: Injuries due to collisions involving cars, trucks, buses, and trains can produce serious injuries which may become chronic or permanent. We work to determine those persons and entities which may be at fault, to secure the proof required to establish fault, and to fully understand and establish the nature and extent of any injuries.
Premises Liability: Unsafe conditions in a store, office complex, residence, or open land sometimes result in injuries to unsuspecting visitors or guests. We work to determine the nature of the dangerous condition and to secure proof of the opportunity and failure to correct that condition.
Medical Negligence: Despite the diligence of most physicians and health care providers, well-established data shows that medical errors are common. When a physician, nurse, or hospital deviates from the standard of care and that negligence results in harm to the patient, the law provides that the injured patient may seek compensation. We consult with medical experts as needed and work diligently to learn the medicine so that we can establish proof of the medical errors which have caused harm.
Nursing Home Negligence: Nursing homes are charged with maintaining both the health and quality of life of their residents. When those residents suffer injuries due to inattention or other negligence, they may be entitled to compensation and an award of attorneys’ fees. Common injuries and their causes include bedsores, malnutrition, falls, and lack of nursing or medical care.
Sexual Abuse: The physical and psychological effects of sexual abuse of children or adults can result in overwhelming difficulties which may last for years. Victims may suffer from maladies which include post-traumatic stress disorder, substance abuse, and difficulty forming personal relationships. We work with psychologists and psychiatrists to understand the specific suffering of each of our clients to best advocate on their behalf.
Product Liability: Defective conditions or dangerous designs in products such as cars, recreational vehicles, vehicles, household appliances, furniture, electronic goods, and adulterated prescription drugs can result in injuries to unsuspecting consumers.
Construction Negligence: Negligence at construction sites and highway projects sometimes result in injuries to workers or passersby. We investigate the causes of dangerous conditions to hold responsible those accountable to our injured clients.
Police Misconduct/Wrongful Convictions: Wrongful conduct by police officers in the use of excessive force, failure to provide medical care, and the falsification of or failure to disclose evidence resulting in a wrongful criminal conviction may be actionable in state and federal courts.
Brain Injury: Brain injury resulting from trauma, lack of oxygen, or exposure to chemical or toxic gases can have profound and lasting effects. Brain injuries may result in both physical and neurological impairments such as those involving movement and speech as well as cognitive deficits involving memory, concentration, attention, language, organization, and motivation. Brain injury is graded by both severity and outcome scales, and each case is distinct. We work with appropriate experts to understand the nature and extent of each brain injury and to advocate for our clients to help them receive just compensation and to make the fullest recovery possible.
