Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

Many injuries result from someone else’s carelessness, and every personal injury case is unique. With an experienced and skilled attorney looking out for you, you have the best chance of winning any personal injury case, regardless of the circumstances. Attorneys can get you the restitution you deserve for your injury, whether it’s for medical bills you were forced to pay, wages you lost due to time off, mental anguish you endured, or any permanent disabilities you or your loved one suffered. Statistics show that people who hire an attorney tend to receive significantly higher payouts in court than those who try to represent themselves.

And, more importantly than the money, almost any injuries you or your loved one could suffer will involve a degree of trauma and an adjustment to change. In the critical period after an injury, you shouldn’t have to worry about fighting your case in court. Instead, focus on the healing process, and we’ll handle the paperwork and the insurance companies. An experienced attorney makes a world of difference to the experience and outcome of your case.

Cases We Handle

Personal injury law is one of the most diverse fields, with every imaginable scenario coming up in court at one point or another. Anytime that someone’s negligence — whether by failure to act, failure to take proper safeguards, or mistreatment — results in a damaging injury to you, you may be eligible for compensation in court. Our practice areas include:

  • Tractor-Trailer Accidents. There are almost 3.5 million semitrailers on the road today, and tractor-trailer accidents can cause devastating injuries due to their size and weight. They are also particularly complex cases, because they can involve multiple parties and huge amounts of evidence.
  • Car Accidents. The injuries sustained in a car crash can be life-threatening, making the road one of the most dangerous places to be. We handle car accidents of all kinds, including those where you were partially at fault.
  • Motorcycle Accidents. Motorcycle riders are often severely injured in crashes because the vehicle doesn’t offer them much protection.
  • Severe Burn Injuries. Burns are painful and can leave lasting scars, which a judge may factor into the resulting payout.
  • Brain and Spinal Cord Injuries. Injuries to the nervous system often cause permanent disabilities that significantly reduce someone’s quality of life or even result in death.
  • Broken Bones. Accidents often result in broken bones. You may need to take time off work to heal, and you could be entitled to compensation for these lost wages, as well as your medical expenses.
  • Unsafe or Defective Products. Consumers should feel confident knowing that the products they buy won’t cause them harm. Unfortunately, hazardous or defective products sometimes make it to the marketplace and cause injury.
  • Medical Malpractice. Medical malpractice is a blanket term that refers to any kind of misconduct by a doctor: improper diagnosis of a patient, failure to diagnose a patient, or improper treatment, such as surgical errors or prescription mistakes. Not all bad medical outcomes count as medical malpractice, so contact a lawyer to learn whether you have a viable claim.
  • Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse. We trust nursing homes to care for our elderly loved ones, but, unfortunately, cases of abuse and neglect occur often.
  • Slip and Fall or Trip and Fall Injuries. Whether they occur on public or private property, slips and trips can lead to costly medical bills and other headaches. Proving negligence in these claims can be very complex.
  • Soft Tissue Injuries. These kinds of injuries involve damage to muscles, ligaments, and tendons. Commons soft tissue injuries occur from a sprain or a strain.
  • Property Injuries. If a property owner fails to install adequate security measures or other safety features on their property, they may be liable for the injuries you received while doing business there.
  • Dog Bites. Dog bite injuries are often severe and, sometimes, life-threatening. If you are bitten by a friend or neighbor’s dog, these claims can be awkward if you don’t hire legal counsel.
  • Wrongful Death and Survival Actions. Losing a loved one is unimaginably painful, and when someone else’s negligence is the reason, that pain can be even harder to handle. Wrongful death suits are a way to be compensated for the premature death of someone close to you.
  • Injuries Sustained While Working on the Job. Employers have a legal responsibility to keep their employees safe and to compensate them for injuries that occur on the job, even if they’re not at fault.
  • Disabilities. Disabilities can take many forms, but they almost always make life more difficult in at least one way. These injuries may last a matter of months or remain for a lifetime.

If you have been injured in any of these ways, you may be eligible for financial compensation including medical expenses, lost wages, property damage, disability, pain and suffering, death benefits, and more.
