If you suffer a personal injury from any type of accident, whether it occurs in your vehicle, at someone’s home where you are a guest, or on public property, call our offices to discuss your next steps. No matter how simple you believe your injury to be, or how severe you know it is, the costs associated with your care and the time away from work you’ll need to recover should never come out of your pocket. Negligent behavior and the injuries that result from it can be life-changing. We will help you hold the offending party responsible for their actions while giving you the time you need to heal.
Car accidents can happen without notice, and when the other driver is operating a vehicle negligently, you are placed in an incredibly vulnerable position – completely at their mercy. Because of these surprise circumstances, the resulting injuries can be very serious, requiring extended care. Property damage, medical bills, and lost wages are only the beginning of your troubles as the emotional toll the injuries can take may be greater than the visible ones. We can help alleviate your pain and difficulties with our experience and aggressive approach to holding negligent drivers responsible for their faults.
Bicycle Crashes and Collisions
Often times, bicyclists believe that if they are involved in an accident on a trail, with another cyclist or pedestrian, that they are not entitled to pursuing financial recovery from the person or party who caused their injuries. This could not be further from the truth. When negligence of any type results in an accident with injury, including those that occur while on bicycles, the offending party can – and should – be held responsible.
Dog Bites and Dog Attacks
Dog bites can occur at any time, especially in public when individuals are not paying attention to their pooch when other people are enjoying the outdoors too. They can also occur in a friend or family member’s home, by a dog you know and love. Dog attacks are usually the result of a loose, dangerous dog that has made it outside of his or her home or yard, which is negligence on the owner’s behalf. No matter where your unprovoked dog bite or attack occurs in Roseburg, OR, you may be able to pursue the owner and their insurance company for negligence, leading to a financial settlement that will allow you to seek the best medical care available while you recover from your injuries.
ATV and Motorcycle Accidents
Enjoying the sights and sounds of Roseburg, OR from a motorcycle or ATV can be exhilarating. The beautiful sights and the fresh air are unmatched in our community, but the dangers can be hidden and devastating. ATV and motorcycle injuries can include brain, spine, and neck injuries that require weeks, months, or even years of recovery time. While the medical care is costly, the time away from work leads to lost wages, and possibly even the loss of benefits. We can help you pursue the negligent person or party who caused your injuries and hold them responsible for the financial needs that resulted from the accident.
Trips, Slips, and Falls Injuries
Much like dog bites, trips, slips, and falls can happen in public, where you are enjoying your time with friends and in private locations where you are a guest. These premises liability cases can be complex and require an experienced attorney group’s representation to ensure you are pursuing the proper owner, operator, or responsible party for your injuries and the costs associated with them. Allow our firm to do the research and investigation, so the unsafe property is no longer a danger to others.
Brain, Spine and Neck Injuries
The brain, spine, and neck injuries that occur during accidents can vary greatly in their need for medical care, but none of these instances should be left to chance. If you hit your head during a slip, trip, and fall accident, or are involved in a car, motorcycle or truck accident, it is imperative that a medical team evaluate your injuries immediately. While a broken arm should also be attended to right away, brain, neck, and spine injuries can become life-changing ailments that compromise your mobility and overall health. Once you have received medical care, contact our office so we can begin formulating an aggressive, solution-focused case against the person who caused your injuries, so we can pursue the proper financial settlement you deserve.
Nursing Home Abuse and Elder Law
No matter how much research you and your family do before trusting a nursing home or caregiver with your elderly loved one’s medical, personal, and quality of life needs, it is up to the company to ensure their employees are practicing the best care available. When mistreatment, negligence or abuse becomes part of your loved one’s experience, action must be taken swiftly. At Dwyer Williams Cherkoss Attorneys, PC, our experience in this area of law is unmatched in Roseburg, OR. We will never tolerate elder abuse and will pursue the individual causing their pain, and their company who employed this individual, immediately so you can get some peace of mind while the process unfolds.
Semi-Truck and Tractor Trailer Injuries
Weighing up to 45,000 pounds, and extending 53 feet behind the cab, semi-truck and tractor trailers are an imposing sight on the roadways. And their real danger comes when they are being operated by an impaired driver. Whether he or she is lacking sleep, is distracted, or under the influence, the split second it takes to overturn one of these massive vehicles is too important for negligence to come into play. Our truck accident attorneys in Roseburg, OR will pursue the driver, the trucking company, or any third-party companies who contributed to its negligent existence on the roadway.
Wrongful Death Cases
Often, truck accident cases lead to wrongful death cases. The sheer size of these trucks can cause such extensive damage to the passenger vehicle it collides with that the person simply does not make it through the accident. When this happens, or any time someone loses a loved one to another’s negligent actions or inactions, our wrongful death attorneys will pursue the financial damages that are shockingly and suddenly left to deal with. The grieving is substantial. And we would like to take the lead in helping you see beyond the accident, and into the future of your financial needs so you can grieve at your own pace.
