Do You Need Hire an Accident Attorney?
If you’ve been injured in any sort of accident in which another individual or entity is at fault you should speak with an experienced attorney. This can be especially important in cases that involve insurance claims. Whether it is your insurance company or the at fault party’s, they rarely have your best interest in mind. Here are the most common types of personal injury cases.
A car accident can be a life-altering ordeal, from which a victim may never fully recover. Anyone not at fault for the accident is a victim, potentially in need of compensation – including passengers in the vehicle driven by the individual at fault.
A bicyclist may be struck by a larger, heavier vehicle, but even an accident involving two or more bicyclists can result in serious injuries, such as broken bones and contusions. These potentially mean time spent without work.
Dog Attacks and Dog Bites
An attack by a dog can be a painful and traumatizing experience. Often there are lacerations that require suturing, as well as an array of injections to stave off the potential for serious diseases, some of which may compel an animal to bite. In addition, there are the concerns of what to do about a dog with demonstrably vicious tendencies.
Lacking the protective measures of a larger, heavier vehicle, a motorcycle delivers virtually all of the force of impact to its rider. Motorcycle accidents frequently result in serious injury, and are often the result of drivers in larger vehicles failing to pay adequate attention to their mirrors.
Neck, Back & Brain Injury
Common in virtually any type of accident, neck, back and brain injuries are painful conditions which take a long period of time to heal – and which may leave a victim permanently disabled, whether partially or fully. This type of injury can lead to a loss of employment opportunity, as well as pain and suffering.
Nursing Home Abuse and Elder Law
As terrible as it is to imagine, physical abuse and neglect are common within nursing homes, wherein under-qualified and poorly vetted individuals react inappropriately to being put in a position of power over someone who is vulnerable. You should always thoroughly investigate any nursing home before committing a loved one to their care; if something should happen to them, you want the best legal aid available in assessing and pursuing damages.
There are few more terrifying highway experiences than winding up in a duel with a semi. Semi-truck drivers are known for making extended hauls without sufficient sleep or nutrition. When this is allowed to go on, it can lead to drivers dozing off at the wheel – or else not paying sufficient attention to their surroundings. With so many blind spots all around a semi-truck, this is a situation that can quickly lead to severe consequences for other motorists, even through something so innocuous as the truck driver attempting to change lanes or to turn.
Slip, Trip and Fall Injuries
On the job, as many as 25% of personal injuries resulting in the need for compensation are tied to the feet, with as many as three-quarters of those resulting from slips, trips and falls. This can be a hazard off the job as well, for anyone, at any time; an improperly constructed ramp or staircase, or a wet floor without the appropriate signage, can lead to severe injury should a person slip – and their entire body’s weight come crashing down onto a vulnerable body part, such as a joint, which isn’t meant to be load-bearing.
If you are injured on the job, you deserve compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. There are many ways in which corporate interests might try to demonstrate a lack of responsibility towards the incident, including placing the blame on your shoulders. Don’t be fooled by this; don’t let yourself be written off as a non-consideration. We have decades’ worth of experience in dealing with worker’s compensation law.
Few incidents can be as personally devastating as the sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one to a preventable accident. You need to be allowed your time to grieve, to deal with the situation, and to move on. You need to be able to survive, for your own sake, and for that of any dependents… as well as non-dependent friends, family members, and other loved ones. No amount of money can replace a lost loved one, but if you are owed damages, they can help to ensure your survival while you learn to cope with your grief.
Across the United States, hundreds of thousands of people are directly affected by accidental injury and injury-related deaths each year. If you expand this field of view to include the survivors of individuals who have been lost to fatal accidentals, and the immediate family members who find themselves called upon to serve as temporary caregivers for an injured person, the number of individuals directly affected by preventable accidents each and every year rises into the millions.
