Helping You With A Variety Of Accidents
Personal injury is a wide area of law that encompasses any injury or harm that is due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness. From car accidents to medical malpractice, our lawyer will review your case and work to help you get the compensation you need to begin your recovery.
He can help you with a variety of personal injury cases, including those involving:
- Birth errors
- Catastrophic injuries
- Nursing home abuse
- Medical malpractice
- Automobile accidents
- Wrongful death
Injuries resulting from accidents can range from broken bones to catastrophic damage that requires extensive medical treatment. In some cases, an accident may even result in the death of a loved one. Losing a loved one is incredibly difficult, especially when the loss could have been prevented but for someone else’s negligence. A wrongful death claim is a legal action by survivors of a deceased individual. In order to have such a claim, the loved one’s death must have been caused by the wrongful actions of another party. The decedent’s loved ones, who bring the claim, may receive monetary compensation for their losses, as determined by the court. Every state has a wrongful death statute; however, the laws may differ greatly.
Medical malpractice occurs when a doctor, nurse, dentist or other type of medical/health care worker performs their duties in a manner that is negligent. This means that the worker’s action or nonaction does not meet the industry standard of care and, as a result, the patient suffers injury. Birth injuries are injuries to a baby, which occur during delivery and are caused by medical negligence. The type of injury and degree of negligence may differ from case to case. Usually, birth injuries occur in situations where a medical professional failed to act or responded inadequately to a complication or medical condition during a birth.
If your accident occurred at work, our attorney can help you with your workers’ compensation claim. Workers’ compensation refers to benefits given to workers who have been injured during the course of their employment. Employees may receive compensation for costs such as lost salary, medical treatment, job rehabilitation and other types of compensation, depending on the situation. In return, the employee cannot sue the employer for the same injuries/incident. Such benefits are required for all United States workers by state and federal laws.
