Areas of Law

Areas of Law Description

- Motorcycle Accidents

Traveling by motorcycle is a fun and economical mode of transportation. Many bikes are reasonably priced and provide great fuel efficiency. However, motorcycles are also less visible to other vehicles and do not provide much protection for the rider in a collision with another motorized vehicle, stationary object or person. Motorcycle accidents can be very serious because the rider can be injured by impact with the pavement, other vehicles, or anything nearby. If the accident was caused by the negligence or carelessness of another party, the victim may be eligible for financial compensation.

- Slip/Trip and Fall Accidents

Slip/trip and fall injuries may sound humorous until you consider that a major fall can cause serious injuries like broken bones, back and neck injuries, and head injuries. A slip/trip and fall injury may be caused by a hazardous condition such as an icy sidewalk, wet or slippery substance on the floor, or poorly maintained stairs, for example. These accidents may occur on public or private property and are the responsibility of the property owner, manager, or occupant. If the injury was a result of a dangerous condition, the property owner may be liable for damages such as medical expenses, lost wages, as well as pain and suffering.

- Construction Accidents

Construction accidents can be complicated because of the number of different companies and employees on a jobsite at any one time. However, it is clear that employers are responsible for keeping workers safe on the job. This includes providing safety training and promoting a safe work atmosphere. Construction accidents are often very serious because they involve big machinery and great heights. Those injured on the job may face a long road to recovery and may need the help of an experienced attorney in order to fight for the compensation they deserve.

- Wrongful Death

A wrongful death occurs when a person is killed in an accident due to the negligence or wrongful act of another party and there is a measurable damage to the family member pursuing the wrongful death suit. Wrongful deaths can result from aggressive driving, drunk driving, medical malpractice, or defective products, for example. Family survivors may seek legal recourse from the negligent party in order to make up for medical bills, funeral expenses, and lost income.

- Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents occur when a car or some other type of motorized vehicle collides with another car or motorized vehicle, a stationary object, or person. Motor vehicle accidents are very scary and can cause long-lasting emotional, physical, and financial distress. Some of the physical injuries incurred in the accident may heal quickly and some may be permanent reminders of the accident. Many times, these collisions are the result of the negligence and the injured victim may be entitled to financial compensation.

- Dog Bite Injuries

Being attacked by a vicious dog is terrifying for anyone—especially a child. Dogs and other animals may bite, claw, or knock over an unsuspecting victim. These injuries can be very serious and may cause pain, infection, disfigurement, emotional trauma, and even death. Owners are responsible for the actions of their pets and victims injured by an attacking dog or other animal may be entitled to monetary damages.
