A Personal Injury Attorney Fighting for Your Rights


Personal Injury

Personal injury litigation covers a broad range of injury types. It can include claims for car accidents, workers' compensation, wrongful death, slip and fall accidents, and many other injury areas. Although the causes of injury may be different, all personal injury cases have one thing in common: the injured person has been hurt through the fault or negligence of someone else. Severe personal injury can be devastating for victims and their families, causing immense physical, emotional, and financial hardship. These victims have the right to seek financial restitution.

Workers' Compensation

Employees injured in work-related accidents, or by their working conditions, are entitled to file for workers' compensation. Workers' compensation is a state-required insurance program intended to compensate injured workers for medical expenses and time off work, regardless of whether the worker was at fault for the injury. The system was put in place to ensure workers are quickly and fairly compensated for their injuries.

Unfortunately, not all injured workers end up being fairly compensated through this government program. Employers generally contract with private insurance companies for their workers' compensation coverage or, if large enough, pay these benefits themselves. And like all businesses, insurance companies and private employers are in the business of making money. They will settle their workers compensation claims for the smallest amounts possible. Moreover, once workers' compensation benefits are accepted, workers forfeit any right to sue their employer in court for the injury.

Brain Injury

Brain injuries can range from a mild concussion that causes short-lived symptoms, to devastating trauma that leads to coma, paralysis, or even death. A victim who survives brain injury may require years of therapy, and still might not recover their full physical or cognitive abilities. If your brain injury is a result of another party's negligence, our attorneys can build the case that delivers the financial restitution you need to heal and live as comfortably as possible.

Spinal Cord Injury

Depending on where the damage occurs, a spinal cord injury may mean partial paralysis, paralysis in the legs, or even paralysis of all four extremities. Some spinal cord injury victims may not be able to breathe on their own, and may require full-time assistance to perform basic tasks. Overcoming, or learning to live with, these devastating injuries can mean an incredible amount of medical intervention, and extraordinary patience on the part of the victim. The physical and emotional strain on the victim and their family can be overwhelming, but you do not need to suffer alone. Our law firm is committed to helping you enjoy improved healing and peace of mind by securing the compensation you deserve.

Construction Accidents

Compared to other industries, construction workers are at a higher risk for on-the-job accidents due to the dangerous nature of their work site. Any number of hazards can cause injury, such as faulty mechanical equipment, slippery or uneven surfaces, or working at an elevated height. Any injury sustained by an employee should immediately be reported to the employer. Although most employers provide workers' compensation, this does not guarantee that the full benefits - including medical coverage and lost wages - will be delivered to victims. To help protect your rights, our experienced personal injury attorneys can litigate your case and win the verdict that recovers just restitution.

Truck Accidents

Due to the immense size and weight of commercial trucks, accident repercussions usually involve very serious injury or death. Truck accident lawsuits are far more complex than auto accident cases, as there are several state and federal laws that govern the trucking industry, and many potentially liable parties. An experienced trucking accident attorney can collect the evidence that proves liability, and secure the compensation you need and deserve.
