Personal Injury - Premises Liability
The term “Slip and Fall” describes the type of injury that occurs on someone else’s property, usually as a result of a defective surface, a slippery substance or other dangerous condition. That fact that you are injured from a slip, trip or fall does not necessarily mean that someone else is legally responsible for your injury. This is why it is important to seek professional advice from a premises liability attorney. Our firm is experienced in determining if the property owner is liable for not taking the right steps to prevent an accident from occurring.

Personal Injury - Product Liability
On regular basis consumers sustain serious injuries from dangerous and defective products. Many of these injuries could be avoided if the manufactures or distributors of these products took additional steps to ensure consumers safety. The primary incentive to increase product safety is to avoid potential claims in product liability lawsuits, which provide compensation for personal injuries due to a defective product, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacture to recover damages. Recoverable damages include:
- Medical Expenses
- Lost Wages
- Loss of Physical capacity
- Pain and Suffering
- Punitive Damages
When a member of your family was killed as a result of a negligent act of another, the law provides for damages to be paid to the survivors of the deceased as compensation for their loss. Insurance companies take a very strong position to limit their liability in the case of a wrongful death. Our office takes an equally strong position in representing the rights of our clients as they relate to the loss of a loved one. We work with independent forensic accountants to develop your case and present the strongest position possible in the pursuit of recovering a lifetime of financial damages and loss of support.
