Nursing home abuse
Nursing home abuse can take on many forms: neglect, lack of care, abuse, and overall mistreatment of elders. Learn more about your and your loved one’s options by speaking with one of our dedicated nursing home abuse lawyers.
Pedestrian accidents can be caused by motorcyclists, motorists, and truckers alike. In addition to a motorist, there may be other negligent parties that can be held responsible for your pedestrian accident injuries.
Truck accidents can be devastating. Many result in severe injury and even death. Unlike an automobile accident, there are multiple parties that can be held responsible in a truck accident personal injury lawsuit.
The death of a loved one is a difficult experience. When that death occurs because of the negligence of another, the pain can be insurmountable. Filing a wrongful death lawsuit can be a beneficial step in the healing process, allowing you to hold responsible parties accountable.
Slip and fall
Slip and fall accidents are among the more common types of personal injury lawsuits, with over 8 million hospital visits from injuries sustained after a slip and fall. If your injury occurred due to someone else’s negligence, they may be liable for any medical bills you’ve accrued.
Traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) can occur for a variety of reasons. Associated with many types of accidents, brain injuries can severely impact your life both in the short term and long term. Recover the compensation you deserve for your recovery road ahead.
Catastrophic injuries can be physical or health illnesses that are extreme in nature. Our experienced personal injury lawyers work alongside our Elite Litigation Group, a specialized team of lawyers well-versed in claims associated with catastrophic injuries, to ensure you get the representation you deserve.
Sexual assaults are one of the most underreported types of crime but require the highest level of care. Every 68 seconds, an American experiences a sexual assault, with every 9 minutes, a child falling victim. Pursuing a personal injury lawsuit following sexual assault is one of the best ways to hold your abuser accountable.
