Personal Injury & Wrongful Death

Pursue Fair Compensation for Negligent Accidents
Negligence is a legal term for the failure to follow a basic standard of careful behavior and causing an injury to someone else. Any accident involving negligence can be the subject of a lawsuit for compensation, but the most common scenarios include the following:
- Car wrecks
- Other motor vehicle accidents, including motorcycle and tractor trailer collisions
- Slip and fall incidents
- Dangerous property conditions
- Animal attacks
Personal injury law entitles people to seek compensation for their injuries sustained in an accident, and wrongful death law entitles families to hold the guilty party accountable.
Understanding Complex Insurance Issues
Many people who have been in accidents have multiple sources of potential payment for their medical bills and other out-of-pocket expenses. Your private health insurance company, Medicare, or Medicaid may partially or fully cover your medical bills. If you receive a settlement or verdict on a personal injury claim, you may or may not need to repay these providers.
This is an increasingly complex area of law and one where our lawyers have the knowledge to plan ahead and pursue the best possible results for you. Contact us to discuss how we can help you as you recover from your accident injuries.
