Do You Need Hire an Accident Attorney in Grants Pass, OR?
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.
An automobile accident can be one of the most terrifying ordeals that anybody is ever likely to experience: the squealing tires, the shattering of windows and windshields, and the prolonged period of recovery from the injuries that occur all too frequently when tons’ worth of metal, plastic, and rubber collide. Whether or not you’re even in a position to speak for yourself, you deserve someone on your side who will fight to get you the assistance you need to get back on your feet.
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. Neck and back injuries are particularly common. These types of injuries may mean time spent out of work, particularly if your mode of transportation requires replacement; bicycles are expensive, and securing a replacement may take time.
Dog Attacks and Dog Bites
An angry or vicious animal is extremely dangerous. They will attack without consideration for circumstances, and seek to kill rather than to disable. 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 the first place. In addition, there are the concerns of what to do about a dog with demonstrably vicious tendencies; an animal that is inclined to attack people unprovoked needs to be removed from the situation wherein it might do so again.
When you’re in a motorcycle accident, you suffer the full strength of the forces involved directly, since there isn’t any vehicle structure around you to absorb some of the impact. Fatalities are common, and survivors rarely just walk away; there are often long periods of physical therapy involved, and a person’s body is rarely capable of operating at its peak again. This kind of accident involves loss of wages and, potentially, permanent partial disability.
Neck, Back and Brain Injuries
Neck and back injuries often result in permanent disability and prolonged pain and suffering. This type of injury is common to virtually every kind of accident, and is often strongly challenged in court. You deserve compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages.
Nursing Home Abuse and Elder Law
Whether they’re under-qualified, stressed, or simply unfit to be working in an environment with people who regularly require their aid, incidents of abuse on nursing home patients at the hands of those who have been entrusted with their care are horrifyingly common. If this has happened to someone in your family, you need to take action to remove them from the situation, and to ensure that it doesn’t happen again.
There are few more terrifying highway experiences than winding up in a duel with a semi. These large and awkward vehicles often have significant blind spots, and are often driven by individuals in a state of near-exhaustion, kept awake by caffeine and other substances. An accident with a semi-truck can be devastating, and somewhere up there in the chain of corporate infrastructure there’s an entity which is responsible for the conditions that resulted in your injury.
Slip, Trip and Falls
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. An improperly constructed ramp or staircase, or a wet floor without the appropriate signage, can lead to severe injury at any time, should a person slip – and their entire body’s weight come crashing down onto a vulnerable body part. Foot and joint injuries are prone to infection and take a long time to heal, resulting in lost wages and medical expenses.
If you are injured on the job, you deserve compensation for medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Depending upon the severity of your injury, you may no longer be able to fulfill your previous job function. 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! We have years’ worth of experience in dealing with corporations who try to pull shady tricks to avert the blame for conditions that are their fault.
The sudden and unexpected loss of a loved one due to an accident can be devastating. You need to be allowed your time to grieve, to deal with the situation, and to move on. For the sake of family and friends, you need to be able to move on, until you can get your feet back under you for your own sake. No amount of money will make your loss feel any better, but it will help to meet your expenses and allow you to survive while you grieve.
Across the United States, hundreds of thousands of people are directly affected by accidental injury and injury-related death each year. With grieving loved ones, friends, and other survivors added in, this amounts to millions of people who are in some measure affected by accidental injury and death on an annual basis. Industrial corporations and insurance firms have raised the art of averting blame for an accident into an art form.
Should you find yourself in such an unfortunate situation, through no fault of your own, come in today for a consultation. Our immediate offices are located in Grant’s Pass, OR, and we have multiple locations throughout the greater area.
You will be treated with the respect and compassion that you deserve, even as we work tirelessly to help you win your case and receive the compensation that is owed to you.
