Personal Injury

Most personal injury cases are premised on a theory of negligence. Negligence occurs when one party owes a duty of care to another party, that duty is breached, and that breach caused an injury to the other party. Common personal injury cases include:

  • Motor Vehicle Accidents – most instances motor vehicle litigation is an insurance matter and dealing with sophisticated adjusters and analysts can be difficult. Not to mention the need to prove up your case with the help of experts and medical advice.
  • Slips and Falls – accidents, unfortunate as they are, can happen anywhere and may have a long term and even permanent medical impact.
  • Medical Malpractice – as in many fields in today’s heavily populated communities, the health care industry is often under staffed and overworked. Such conditions can result in substandard care causing serious and/or grave medical consequences. Going up against the health care industry takes skill, veracity, and a high volume of resources.
  • Wrongful Death – this is a case brought by the survivors of a deceased person, against a person who can be held liable for a death. Many times this is the only remedy after the loss of a loved one.
  • Products Liability – this concept refers to when a manufacturer or seller is liable for placing a dangerously defective product into the stream of commerce and that defective product causes injury to a consumer. This is a very specialized area of law that only a knowledgeable team of attorneys can adequately litigate.
  • Dangerous Prescription Drugs – modern society relies more and more on pharmaceutical products, so much that when a dangerous prescription drug enter the stream of commerce, the number of victims is enormous. It is an industry that now has to be regulated and monitored for dangers that exceed street drugs.
