Personal Injury

Personal injury cases are taken on a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay no attorney fees if we do not recover damages for you.

  • Medical malpractice cases require legal and medical knowledge and experience. We work with medical professionals who advise us on all malpractice cases. We also handle obstetrical malpractice cases.
  • Nursing home neglect and nursing home abuse of a vulnerable adult cases are complicated. Choose a law firm that is experienced with the issues involved.
  • Car accidents require skillful negotiation with insurance companies. A truck accident often causes very serious injuries. You need a lawyer who knows how to investigate these incidents.
  • Defective products injure thousands of people each year. Because of the technical knowledge involved, we work with experts in mechanical or product engineering to fully investigate what occurred.
  • Personal injury cases typically involve the negligence of one party causing injury to another. The injury may be severe enough to cause wrongful death.
  • Unsafe property can cause accidents resulting in serious injury or death.
  • Faulty security measures can make you an easy target for criminals. Victims may suffer physical or sexual assault, gunshot wounds or murder.
