Knowledgeable personal injury representation

When you can trace the cause of your injury or of your loved one's death to negligence/recklessness, wanton disregard or carelessness, you may have cause for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.

 

By investigating your accident and working with your medical professional, we can gain a clear understanding of how your injuries may impact the rest of your life. With this information, we'll negotiate with the at-fault party's insurance carrier to help you get the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Premises liability

Property owners, managers, operators and landlords have a duty to provide a safe environment for consumers, patrons, tenants and visitors. If you've been attacked or injured on another's property, you might be entitled to recover monetary compensation for damages. These cases can be challenging, but our experienced personal injury attorneys will aggressively pursue your claim.

Work-related accidents

Work-related accidents can cause serious injury or even death. Workers' compensation laws deal with the damages that can be awarded to injured employees to cover medical expenses, continuing wages, and loss of the capacity to earn. However, a workers' compensation claim may not be your only recourse.

 

If you have suffered from an on-the-job injury, make sure the attorney you hire investigates whether you may have a claim against a "third party," such as the manufacturer of unsafe equipment, the owner of the premises or vessel where the injury occurred (if different from your employer), or against another company whose employee caused the injury.

Products liability claims

A products liability claim can result when a person is injured by a dangerous or defective product. The plaintiff must first prove that the product is actually defective. Proof of a product defect is based on its design, manufacturing, and/or marketing. We'll approach your product liability case from every angle.
