There are many reasons to contact an experienced Attorney for help – but how do you tell if your situation requires legal assistance or not? Reaching out to a lawyer for assistance can be beneficial in many situations, but if you find yourself confused about which situations those are, give us a call!
Personal Injury Situations:
1. If you find yourself in a bad accident or a car wreck that leads to injury.
This can include semi accidents, car accidents or motorcycle accidents.
2. Slip and Fall situations.
This includes situations where 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.
3. Workers Compensation.
This happens when you get 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.
4. Wrongful Death.
“Wrongful Death” is when a person dies due to the negligence of another person or entity. Wrongful Death may arise out of auto/motorcycle/semi-truck accidents, medical malpractice and product negligence.
5. Product Liability.
Defective products can cause serious injury, and even death. Companies fail to adequately test safety, or worse, they sell a product despite the evidence of danger.
6. Medical Malpractice.
“Medical Malpractice” refers to mistakes that a doctor, nurse or hospital makes that result in personal injury to their patient. Medical Malpractice might be due to errors made in surgery, misdiagnosing a serious illness, prescribing or administrating the wrong medication for your injury or illness or incorrectly reading a mammogram, a PAP smear or an X-ray.
Other Areas of Practice:
1. Criminal Defense.
If you’ve been charged with criminal charges or an arrest, it’s natural to feel alone and scared. In the practice of criminal law, reputation of the criminal defense attorney is key.
2. Traffic Tickets.
Hiring an Attorney can avoid points on your license, keep your insurance rates lower and save you time and hassle!
3. Class Actions.
These can include anything from faulty medical devices, drugs, or automotive.
4. Hardship License.
A hardship license, also known as a limited driving privilege (LDP) license, is granted to someone whose driver’s license has been suspended or revoked. Under some circumstances, you may be able to receive limited driving privileges: driving to work, the grocery store and some other areas deemed as necessary.
