Accidents & Injuries Attorney Overview

Lawyer Representation in Personal Injury Cases

Serious injuries can occur in a wide variety of situations, and when someone is injured because of another person's actions or negligence, the laws in the United States allow the injured party to pursue compensation for their damages through a personal injury lawsuit.

If you have been injured, you should work with an experienced attorney to determine your options for recovering compensation from the party or parties who were at fault for your injuries. A skilled lawyer can ensure that you meet the legal requirements of the laws in your state, demonstrate liability for your injuries, and work to obtain the financial compensation you deserve.

Accident Compensation

People may be injured in a wide variety of accidents which occur due to the negligence of one or more parties. Those who have suffered an injury may be able to pursue compensation in accidents such as:

Other Types of Injuries

While many types of injuries are accidental, others occur due to a person's intentional actions or a party's failure to exercise their duty of care to protect people's safety. These types of injuries include:

  • Sexual assault and sexual abuse.
  • Injuries which occur as the result of nursing home neglect or abuse.
  • Injuries from dog bites or other types of animal attacks.
  • Injuries caused by defective products, including dangerous drugs or medical devices, defective auto parts that can lead to rollover accidents and other dangerous situations, and products containing toxic materials such as asbestos.
  • Workplace injuries that occur during the course of a person's job, including accidental injuries, diseases contracted in the course of doing work, and injuries which occur from repetitive motion or normal work activities. Injured workers are typically eligible for workers' compensation, even if they were at fault for their own injury.
  • The wrongful death of a person killed because of someone's negligence or actions. The surviving family members of a deceased person may be able to receive compensation from the party or parties responsible for the death.

If you have suffered a personal injury, you may be able to recover damages including past and future medical bills, lost income from missed work, diminished earning capacity, and pain and suffering. It is important to work with a skilled attorney to ensure that all liable parties are identified and that you are able to obtain the financial compensation that will meet your needs.
