We will handle your case with the compassion and respect you deserve. We will also assist you with finding resources to help you deal with the physical and mental trauma that results from sudden injuries and the death of loved ones.

Automobile Collisions

Automobile collisions happen suddenly and can turn your life upside down. The insurance company will seek to minimize your personal injury claim. We will help put together information to maximize the value of your case.  If the insurance company refuses to agree to a reasonable settlement, we will take your case to court and even to trial if necessary.

Tractor Trailer Collisions

Tractor trailer collision are not like your typical automobile accident.  Tractor Trailer Drivers are subject to many more rules and regulations than other drivers. Injuries sustained in truck accidents are generally more severe than in other types of automobile accidents. Our lawyers are experienced with truck accidents and can make sure critical evidence is preserved and your claim is well presented.

Nursing Home Neglect

It’s difficult to put a loved one in a nursing home. You should expect compassionate and dignified care from a nursing facility. Unfortunately, that doesn’t always happen. If you notice wounds, bruises, bed or pressure sores, a loss of weight or changes in personality, the nursing home may be neglecting or abusing your family member. A nursing home may be understaffed, or the staff may be poorly trained or overworked. If you suspect nursing home neglect or abuse call one of our attorneys. We can help you deal with the nursing home and if there has been neglect or abuse, hold them accountable.

Product Defects

Sometimes product manufacturers make products that are defective and injure people. These manufacturers may be strictly liable for defective products. Our lawyers have handled cases against manufacturers involving mining equipment, farm equipment, chemical binders, manufacturing machinery, medical products and explosives. If you are injured due to a defective product contact us so we can evaluate your case.

Medical Errors

One of the leading causes of death in the United States is medical errors.  The cases are often times extremely difficult and require expertise and availability to medical experts.  We have been recognized for our experience regarding handling medical malpractice cases.

Environmental Hazards

We have handled cases involving numerous people injured due to chemical exposure.  Many times environmental hazard cases are handled in the form of Multi-District Litigation (MDL) or Class action lawsuits due to the number of persons injured or negatively impacted by the hazards.  We have lawyers associated with our firm with experience in chemical engineering and management of MDL and class action lawsuits.

Unsafe or Defective Property Conditions

Unsafe or defective property conditions can refer to trip and fall hazards, mold problems or even negligent security. Our attorneys have held companies responsible for broken bones, health issues related to falls, mold exposure and assaults in locations from pubs to shopping malls. If you were injured at someone else’s home or business contact us so we can discuss your case.

Wrongful Death

Unfortunately, in many situations the negligence or intentional act of another ends up in the death of a loved one.  In those situations, understandably, the last thing one normally thinks about is contacting a lawyer.  Just a few things to consider – first, usually only the executor or administrator of the decedent’s estate can file a lawsuit.  Second, remember there is always a statute of limitations in which the estate has to file a lawsuit in court.  If the lawsuit is not timely filed, the case will likely be dismissed.  Third, although unpleasant to think about, consider having an autopsy performed, especially in neglect cases, an autopsy may be the only way of establishing the true cause of death.
