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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.

- 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.
