Personal Injury… What is it?

When it comes to accidents on the road, we specialize in semi truck accidents, car accidents, and motorcycle accidents. Semi truck accidents, also known as big rig or 18 wheeler accidents, are some of the most catastrophic accidents around… Weighing up to 80,000 lbs and made of steel, semi trucks make a tremendous impact and can leave others involved with serious and debilitating injuries. Sometimes the driver is to blame for being reckless or distracted, or the company does not have equipment that is up to par. When a motorcycle is involved in a crash with a car or semi truck, the results can be catastrophic. Motorcycle accidents often result from the negligence or carelessness of other drivers who do not check their blind spot when changing lanes, do not see the motorcycle when entering or exiting a street, do not yield the right of way at a stop or made a sudden left hand turn in front of an oncoming motorcycle at an intersection. With 246,417 people who died in 2016 due to car related accidents, make sure to hire the team that will help you receive past and future medical treatments and rehabilitation, lost wages, pain and suffering.

Another branch of Personal Injury would be “Slip and fall” which occurs when a person falls and is hurt due to some type of hazard. These types of accidents most often occur in commercial settings, such as a mall, department store, restaurant or other business location. However, they can also occur on private property, which is typically referred to as a premise liability accident. Such accidents could also be a dog bite, amusement park accident, or exposure to dangerous substances. Injuries can also be caused due to hidden dangers such as poorly maintained sidewalks, wet floors, unsalted stairs in icy weather, etc.

Workers Compensation is a case for when you or a loved one gets injured due to a dangerous workplace or accident on the job. When injured on the job, you don’t want to negotiate with your employer and insurance company alone, you need an advocate. Workers’ compensation benefits can help cover medical benefits, wage replacement and disability.

Ever wonder what Injured by a product means? Product Injury is when defective products can cause serious injury and even death. Sometimes companies fail to adequately test safety, and sometimes sell a product despite the evidence of danger and risk. Products that fall under this category to cause injuries include motor vehicles, equipment, poor tools, medical devices, pharmaceuticals and children’s products.

Overall between Traffic Accidents, Slip & Fall, Worker’s Compensation, Wrongful Death, Product Liability and Medical Malpractice, our law offices specialize on working for the people, finding a solution and fighting for what is right for the injured.
