Construction Accidents. Working on a construction site can be a dangerous occupation and as a result, employers, contractors, and others are legally required to provide a safe workplace. Let us explain some of your options if you were hurt on a job site because of an unsafe workplace.
Dental Malpractice. A botched dental procedure can cause severe pain, disfigurement and the need for further dental or medical care. Dentists have an obligation to use reasonable care when treating patients to avoid harming patients. If you you were injured as a result of a dentist’s neglect, we may be able to help.
Drug and Pharmaceutical Liability. Drug manufacturers, doctors, pharmacists, and others have a duty to make sure that the drugs they prescribe, hand out, and create are safe and right for you. If a mistake is made at any stage of the process, you need to know how to take action against the appropriate party to ensure you get the compensation you need.
Elevator and Escalator Accidents. We use elevators and escalators so much in our daily lives that most of us do not give them a second thought. But this type of equipment can be dangerous if not maintained properly. If you were hurt in an elevator or on an escalator, put our experience to work for you.
False Arrest and Excessive Force. The police have the important responsibility to keep the public safe. This duty does not, however, give the police the right to violate our fundamental Constitutional rights. If you believe your rights were violated by the police, speak with one of our attorneys for a free consultation.
Medical Malpractice. Our doctors are supposed to help keep us healthy by doing proper physical examinations, ordering the right testing and recommending the correct treatment when there is a problem. When a doctor fails in these obligations, there may be a basis for a legal claim. Let us help you investigate if you were a victim of medical malpractice.
Mesothelioma and Asbestos. Over the past few decades, we’ve learned about the dangers of asbestos and mesothelioma, and most companies and professions have worked hard to clean up their acts and minimize damage. Unfortunately, that is not true for everyone. Moreover, this is a condition that often takes years to manifest, so you may not even realize that you have problem for a decade or more. If you suffered injuries due to asbestos exposure while on the job, call for a free consultation.
Nursing Home Liability. Residents of nursing homes are entitled to a clean safe environment, that upholds recognized standards of care for the treatment of the elderly. When the care at a nursing home facility falls below accepted standards of care, and a patient is injured, you may have a right to file a claim for damages.
Premises Liability. Landlords, store owners, and others have a responsibility to make sure that their property is reasonably safe and that people are warned about any potential dangers. This means that the property must be free from defects or problems that can cause injury. When they fail in this basic obligation, and a person is injured, there may be a basis for a legal claim.
Product Liability. Manufacturers and others have a duty to make sure that their products are safe and properly labeled so as to warn people about potential safety dangers. The law requires that products be safe both in design and manufacture. When a manufacturer of a product fails in these obligations, there may be a basis for a legal action.
School Accidents. When we send our children to school, we expect that they will be in a safe environment. We expect that the playgrounds, classrooms and other places where they spend their time will be safe. Sometimes, though, these places can be unsafe because of a lack of supervision or failures in the maintenance of school equipment.
Train/Railroad Liability. We have helped people injured as train passengers, at train stations as well as those working for a railroad under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA). If your accident somehow involved the train or railroad system, call our experienced accident attorneys for a free consultation.
Worker’s Compensation. No matter where you work, accidents and injuries can happen. When they do, you may be entitled to important worker benefits called workers compensation. You may also be entitled to file a legal claim for pain and suffering, as well as other damages. Speak with one of our attorneys to find out your legal options.
Wrongful Death. Nothing can make up for the traumatic loss of a loved one. The law does, however, permit the filing of a wrongful death claim to seek damages for this type of loss, including the financial hardship caused to a family by the death. If this has happened to a member of your family, call our office for a free consultation.
