Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle
Our team is prepared to handle personal injury claims across the United States. We are familiar with the applicable laws of each state and can walk you through your rights and options after an accident.
Our national Veterans personal injury attorney assists with claims involving:
- Vehicular Accidents. Any collision involving a car, truck, bus, bicycle, motorcycle, or pedestrian can lead to catastrophic, life-altering injuries. Crashes are often the result of a motorist’s negligent driving, which may consist of excessive speeding, failing to follow traffic rules, distracted driving (including texting while driving), driving while intoxicated (DUI), and other reckless behavior. You may have a claim if another vehicle collided with you despite your obeying all traffic laws.
- Premises Liability. The specific rules surrounding premises liability vary by state, but in general, property owners owe a duty of care to people who have permission to be on their property. This means they must make a reasonable effort to resolve dangerous hazards they knew about or should have known about before someone gets hurt. For example, a grocery store owner owes a duty of care to customers who enter their store. If a spill occurs and an hour passes without any action being taken by the store owner or their employees, an argument could be made that the store owner should have known about the spill and taken steps to clean it up. If someone slips and falls on the spill, they may have a claim. Other types of premises liability cases include dog bites, swimming pool accidents, amusement park accidents, and inadequate security.
- Wrongful Death. In some tragic cases, an accident (or injuries sustained in an accident) may kill someone. Qualifying survivors of the victim have the right to pursue compensation through a wrongful death claim. The rules governing who can bring a wrongful death lawsuit vary by state.
Each state has its own statute of limitations for personal injury and wrongful death cases. This means victims only have a certain amount of time to start the legal process after an accident. Should you miss your state’s deadline, you will be unable to recover any compensation, so do not wait to get legal advice.
Your personal injury claim will not necessarily go to trial. Many claims can be settled out of court, which can ultimately save everyone time, stress, and money. We will aggressively negotiate a fair settlement that covers all of your losses. If this cannot be accomplished, we will prepare for trial.
A successful personal injury lawsuit can allow you to recover compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Reduced earning capacity
- Property damage
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of enjoyment of life
Depending on your state, you may still be able to recover partial damages if you are found to be partially responsible for the accident. However, your total compensation package will be reduced by your level of fault. Some states do not allow for any recovery if partial fault is established.
Our national Veterans personal injury attorneys understands how these cases are decided and can provide the tenacious advocacy you need to prevail. We recognize what is at stake, especially if you are a Veteran already struggling to manage one or more disabilities, which is why you will have the full attention and support of our team throughout our handling of your case.
