Serious Injury Accidents
Serious injury lawsuits and claims arise when people are injured by the carelessness, negligence, or intentional acts of others, or injured by products that are in some way defective. When a person or corporation is found to be legally responsible for injuring someone, they are liable for the injury, and may be compelled to compensate the injured person.

Car, Motorcycle and Truck Accidents
When you’ve been involved in car, motorcycle, or truck accident that results in serious injuries, it is often necessary to retain the services of a serious accident lawyer. Often times, insurance companies are principally concerned with protecting their bottom line, while negligent drivers may deny any fault at all. An experienced serious accident attorney can help you understand your case, act as your advocate with insurance companies, and protect your rights to be fairly compensated for your injuries.
Products liability lawsuits and claims arise out of the manufacture of dangerous or defective products. In such lawsuits, our products liability attorneys represent clients against corporations or manufacturers who have sold or manufactured unsafe products to consumers.
Wrongful deaths are caused by the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of another person or a corporate entity. For example, deaths caused by a drunk driver, defective or dangerous products, construction of unsafe structures or buildings, or failing to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered under the law as wrongful deaths.
Medical malpractice claims and lawsuits arise when patients are injured or die as a result of the carelessness or intentional acts of doctors, nurses, hospitals, dentists, or other healthcare provider. Medical malpractice claims commonly involve medical errors, birth injuries, surgical errors, pharmacy medication errors, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose cancer (breast, bladder, lung, ovarian, cervical, pelvic), misread tests or X-rays, HMO misconduct, adverse drug reactions, and medical device failure.
Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect
Nursing home lawsuits and claims arise due to abuse, neglect, inadequate medical care and medical mistakes because of untrained or uncaring staff. Nursing home lawsuits commonly involve bed sores, pressure ulcers, falls, physical abuse, sexual abuse, assault, dehydration or malnutrition, choking on food, burns, and other injuries that occur in nursing homes, assisted living facilities and by home healthcare providers.
