Practice Areas

Every personal injury case is unique, but most are caused by negligence. Negligence can result when members of society do not fulfill their obligation to act responsibly and avoid putting others at risk. Some accidents are unavoidable, but if there is proof that someone could have acted differently under the circumstances and chose instead to ignore the risk posed to others, this is against the law.

Injuries to oneself or a loved one can create numerous concerns. People often have to make quick decisions, even when they are still receiving care for their injuries. Along with medical treatment, people who have been wronged need help from a skilled attorney with experience in personal injury cases. Your attorney will help you understand the laws that relate to your case and guide you through the process of recovering damages.

  • Wrongful Death Litigation
    When someone dies or is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another person, the surviving members of the victim’s family may sue for “wrongful death.” These cases are heard in civil courts.
  • Construction Accidents
    Construction law involves legal issues related to the construction of a building or other structure. These include workplace safety regulations, hiring practices, environmental rules, use of equipment, and city and county ordinances, such as restrictions on zoning and construction noise.
  • Product Liability
    Product liability refers to the area of law dealing with the manufacture or sale of defective or dangerous products. Consumer products are expected to meet certain standards for performance and safety.
  • Automobile Accidents
    People are required to exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances” when operating a vehicle. The failure to do so can be considered negligence, and could be grounds for legal action when accidents or injuries occur.
  • Medical Malpractice
    Medical malpractice (also called medical negligence) occurs when the plaintiff is injured or their preexisting condition is worsened during treatment from a doctor, healthcare professional, or hospital not acting in accordance with the accepted medical standards.
  • Personal Injury
    Personal injury cases involve legal disputes between a party who has suffered harm from an accident or injury, and another party that might be liable for causing that harm. These cases may be resolved through civil court proceedings that go to trial or are settled prior to filing a lawsuit.
