Motor Vehicle/Bus Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents affect the lives of millions of people each year. If you have been injured in a car accident caused by the negligence of another, you may be entitled to a variety of benefits, including payment of medical bills and loss of earnings, as well as compensation for your pain, suffering, and inconvenience. Insurance companies will attempt to settle your claims with you for far less than what you may be entitled to, which is why it's essential that you consult with a lawyer.
Cyclists and pedestrians may have just as much a right to travel on a particular roadway as a motor vehicle. Those who have been struck by a negligent motorist can suffer serious and permanent injuries.
Premises Liability/Slip & Fall
Individuals are frequently injured on property that is owned or controlled by someone else. It is the duty of the property owners or managers to safely maintain their property. If you were injured by someone else's failure to maintain their property in a safe condition, you may be entitled to recover monetary damages for medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
Products liability refers to the liability of any or all parties along a certain chain of manufacture of any product for damage caused by that product. Products liability claims can be based on negligence, strict liability, or breach of warranty of fitness depending on the jurisdiction within which the claim is based.
In today's world people unfortunately often do not pay for services or goods that have been provided for them. Depending on which jurisdiction your transaction occurred, there are rules and regulations to protect both you and whomever you are trying to collect payment from.
Workers' compensation laws provide medical and wage loss benefits to those who have suffered an on-the-job injury, including compensation for permanent injuries. Compensation may be available to injured workers regardless of whether or not the injury was due to the worker's negligence, the negligence of another, and the previous physical condition of the employee.
