Areas of Law
Areas of Law Description
- Personal Injury
If you have suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one due to someone else's negligent or careless actions, the attorneys at Sales & Satterley can help you hold the responsible party accountable for their actions and get the compensation you deserve.
Sales & Satterley is here for you if you are suffering due to a medical condition caused by asbestos. We can help you determine who is responsible for your illness and aggressively pursue compensation, taking your case to court if need be. We are compassionate when dealing with clients but fierce when taking on the opposition.
Mesothelioma is a devastating form of cancer countless individuals have suffered from as a result of asbestos exposure. The fact that many individuals have mesothelioma and other asbestos-related medical conditions is unacceptable and tragic — the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), product manufacturers and businesses who used products containing asbestos knew of its dangers for decades yet did little to prevent this toxic substance from harming employees and consumers. Had this toxic material been removed from the market prior to the EPA’s banning of asbestos in 1989, many deaths from an entirely avoidable medical illness could have been prevented.
- Toxic Torts
If you have suffered injuries or a loved one has died due to exposure to toxic chemicals, the attorneys at Sales & Satterley can help you recover the compensation you deserve. Our partners have more than five decades of experience handling toxic tort cases for clients throughout the United States.
- Defective Products
Manufacturers owe a duty to consumers to produce items that are safe to use. However, many manufacturers disregard this duty and choose profit over quality. As a result, thousands of innocent Americans are seriously injured and killed every year due to malfunctioning and defective products. If you need an experienced lawyer to handle your case, choose the lawyers at Sales & Satterley.
- Wrongful Death
Losing a loved one in an accident is one of the most traumatic events that a person may ever experience. However, if a member of your family was killed because of the negligent or reckless conduct of another person or entity, you can hold that party accountable for their actions.
- Burn Injury
Every year, thousands of Americans suffer severe burn injuries. These injuries can happen anywhere — at your job, in your home or even just walking down the street. Regardless of how a burn injury occurs, its consequences are often the same — extreme pain, dehydration, shock and swelling that can make breathing, circulation and movement extremely difficult. Without proper treatment, these injuries can result in permanent scarring and disfigurement, amputation, and at worst, death.
- Brain Injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) often occur as the result of extreme head trauma caused by car crashes, truck and motorcycle accidents, railroad crashes, and slip and fall accidents. TBIs are extremely serious injuries, and may cause victims to lapse into a coma, suffer from functional deficits and even die.
- Defective DePuy Hip Replacement
If you have suffered injuries due to a defective DePuy hip replacement system, the product liability lawyers at Sales & Satterley in Louisville can help you seek compensation for your damages. There has been a wave of lawsuits against DePuy and Johnson & Johnson by clients who have been injured by these products, and our lawyers have the experience and skill to successfully handle your case. Our partners have more than five decades of experience handling defective product cases throughout the United States, and are equipped to help you secure the compensation you need.
- Product Liability
People rely on numerous products to help them get through the day. From the toaster they use for breakfast to the tires on the cars they drive to work, these products are trusted to perform the tasks they were purchased to do. However, when these products malfunction, it can result in much more than broken trust. Even seemingly harmless products — including toasters, hair dryers and laptops — can cause serious, sometimes fatal injuries to their users.
- Catastrophic Injury
Catastrophic injury cases require attorneys to have not only a vast understanding of the law, but also extensive knowledge of medicine, economics, forensic accounting and statistical analysis. Our partners have more than 50 years of collective experience handling catastrophic injury cases throughout the United States. Our firm works closely with experts in medicine, economics, forensic accounting and statistical analysis to help prepare your case and testify on your behalf in court. This approach has helped our catastrophic injury attorneys secure millions of dollars in compensation for our clients in settlement proceedings and at trial.
- Spinal Cord Injury
The human body is a complex system of organs, bones, nerves, muscles, tissues and fluids that work together in unison to provide movement. However, the human body has its limits. The force that a motor vehicle accident can inflict on the human body can cause it to bend and compress far past its natural limits, causing its bones to shatter, its muscles to split and its nerves to be severed. These injuries can leave a person confined to a wheelchair or a hospital bed for the rest of his or her life.
At Sales & Satterley, we are known for representing clients throughout the United States who have suffered serious injuries in accidents. There are few injuries more serious or life-altering than amputations. An amputation can take away the ability to work, walk, drive and survive on one's own. Amputees also face a lifetime of learning how to deal with their disabilities, including keeping their wounds clean, attending occupational and physical therapy, and using prosthetic devices.
- Transportation Law
If you have been in a catastrophic transportation accident, a Kentucky car accident attorney from Sales & Satterley can help you pursue compensation to recover from your economic losses and physical pain and suffering. Our partners have more than 50 years of combined experience handling a wide range of complex motor vehicle accidents for severely injured individuals and those who have lost loved ones in accidents.
- Car Accident
Every year, innocent people suffer horrible injuries due to mechanical failures and design defects present in their cars and trucks. Vehicle manufacturers often choose to create a more cost-effective product at the sacrifice of consumer safety. A few years ago, Toyota made international headlines for causing the deaths of several people in accidents due to its negligence. The company hid the fact that many cars were produced with defective accelerators that made it impossible for drivers to stop their vehicles.
- SUV Rollovers
SUV rollovers also create serious risks for other motorists — when SUVs flip on the road, they may spin into other lanes of traffic or cause multi-vehicle accidents. Sudden rollovers around curves can be difficult for other drivers to see and avoid hitting the vehicle that rolled over, putting all drivers and passengers in further danger.
- Auto Accident
A Louisville auto accident attorney from Sales & Satterley can help you collect damages following an SUV rollover accident. While we handle lawsuits involving a wide range of motor vehicle accidents, we take a special interest in car accidents caused by manufacturing problems. Our experience with complex automobile accident cases and defective products makes us ideally situated to try claims where design defects — such as a lack of a roll bar — unnecessarily expose SUV drivers and passengers to danger if their vehicles roll over.
- Railroad Accident
While railroad accidents are no longer common, they still have the ability to inflict serious damage to those involved. Railroad employees and train passengers have the right to seek compensation for their injuries from railroad companies or negligent parties who contributed to their injuries. However, doing so on your own can be difficult. Railroad companies employ skilled litigators whose primary goal is to minimize the compensation accident victims receive by deflecting blame to other parties.
- Auto Defects
Millions of Americans put their trust in their automobiles, and it can be easy to forget just how dangerous operating a motor vehicle can be. An automobile can weigh up to three tons, travel in excess of 200 miles per hour, and be composed of more than 10,000 individual parts. When just one of these parts is defective, the consequences can be disastrous for you and other drivers on the road.
- Truck Accidents
Truck accidents have the ability to produce especially catastrophic injuries and result in a high rate of fatalities. Whether you are dealing with a lawsuit involving an accident that occurred due to poor weather conditions or one where hazardous materials were spilled on a roadway, choosing a knowledgeable attorney to protect your best interests is one of the smartest, most important decisions you can make. The Kentucky truck accident lawyers of Sales & Satterley are the ideal attorneys for your case.
- Hazmat Accidents
Hazmat truck accidents are expensive affairs where dangerous materials must be cleaned up and disposed of as quickly as possible. Roadways are often shut down when trucks carrying hazardous materials are involved in accidents and the substances being carried spill or leak onto the roadway. If transporting potentially hazardous materials that would increase the dangers to others, truck drivers are legally obligated to have a special license and clearly display a warning of the presence of these materials.
- FELA Litigation
The Federal Employer Liability Act (FELA) protects those who have been injured while employed by a railroad company. Under FELA, railroad and rail yard employees are able to seek financial relief from the government after they have sustained on-the-job injuries. FELA was enacted more than 100 years ago and continues to protect the rights of railroad workers even today.
- Legal Malpractice
When lawyers are admitted to practice law, they take an oath to abide by a set of professional rules and ethics. However, there are attorneys who forget or knowingly disregard this oath, and take advantage of their clients’ faith to rob them of their hard-earned money.
