Personal Injury

PERSONAL INJURY refers to the area of law that seeks to protect victims who are harmed by the negligence of another person or entity. Negligence, in turn, is defined as the failure to act with the prudence that a reasonable person, under the same circumstances, would have exercised. Negligence occurs when a defendant’s conduct imposes an unreasonable risk upon another, which results in injury to that person.

Every person has a legal duty which requires that he or she conduct himself according to a certain standard, so as to avoid unreasonable risk to others. If someone fails to conform with that duty and causes injury to another person, he or she may be liable for the damages caused.

Workers Compensation

WORKER'S' COMPENSATION laws are designed to ensure that employees who are injured or disabled on the job are provided with fixed monetary awards, eliminating the need for litigation. But sometimes companies and private employers subvert these laws and fail to pay sufficient money to those injured or disabled on the job.

There are certain workers compensation procedures that must be followed when a worker has been injured or dies on a work-related project. Depending on the state that the workers compensation is being sought, the laws will vary.

It is advised to know what your state laws and workplace procedures are regarding workers compensation, especially in high-risk occupations. If an injury is suffered, the worker will then know what workers compensation steps to follow to best allow for damages to recovered in full. A workers compensation lawyer can help the worker make sure the proper steps are followed and that his/her legal rights are upheld.

If you or anyone you know has been injured while working on the job and your employer has failed to give you sufficient funds, contact our Workers Compensation Lawyers. We will handle your case with a high standard of quality.

Product Liability

PRODUCT LIABILTY laws impose on manufacturers and retailers, a responsibility to protect the consumers who use their products. Manufacturers and designers must ensure that their products are not defective or inherently dangerous when used appropriately, and wholesalers and retailers are expected to keep unsafe products off their shelves.

Design defects, marketing defects, and manufacturing defects can pose threats of injury to innocent consumers. Improper warnings or instructions on a product’s packaging can cause injuries to the person using the product. The results of product liability accidents may cause long lasting effects on the victim, be it physically, emotionally, or financially. If the product is proven to be defective the defendant is held legally responsible.

In turn, a consumer may file a lawsuit against any person or entity that participated in making or marketing a defective product or an entity that put such product into the stream of commerce. This suit could include all entities in the product's chain of distribution responsible for the harm.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to a faulty or defective product contact our Product Liabiltiy Lawyers. We will handle your case with diligence at the standard you would expect.
 



Wrongful Death

WRONGFUL DEATH LAW is an area of law that seeks to provide financial compensation to the heirs of a person whose death was caused by the negligent, willful, or wrongful act, neglect, omission, or default of another.

A death caused by a negligent, careless, intentional or reckless act of another person or corporation is considered a wrongful death. In most states, if the death of a relative or spouse was caused by the wrongful act of another, surviving family members can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party or parties. In some instances, these claims are filed in order to obtain monetary damages to cover the earnings the deceased person would have provided. Other damages that may be recovered include:

Expense associated with the death, e.g., medical and funeral
Loss of support
Lost benefits, such as insurance, from the death
Loss of inheritance from an untimely death
Loss of love, companionship, comfort, care, assistance, protection, affection or care suffered by the survivor of the decedent
Punitive damages, intended to punish wrongdoers and prevent them from harming others
In order to file a wrongful death claim, you must be able to prove that you will experience severe future emotional and financial hardship because of the loss of the negligent death.

The required elements for a successful case for wrongful death include:

Death of person
That death was caused by the negligence of another
There are surviving family members who are monetarily suffering due to that death
There must be a personal representative appointed to bring the suit on behalf of the decedent's estate
The laws regarding wrongful death cases are complex and include many facets of law. It is vital to surviving family members to seek the advice of experienced wrongful death lawyers to protect your rights and those of your loved ones.

If you have a loved one who has suffered a wrongful death, you may be eligible to receive compensation under the law. We can help you through this trying time with dignity and respect for you and your loved one.
