Over 50 million people are injured in vehicular accidents each year. Collision-related injuries commonly involve the head, neck, and back, and permanent disabilities often result. These injuries cause considerable economic losses to victims and their families due to treatment costs and wage loss. We have been protecting vehicle collision victims for years and can help you avoid the traps set by insurance companies.
A bicyclist is fatally injured in an accident every six hours, with head injuries accounting for approximately 75% of all serious cycling injuries and fatalities. These injuries are often attributed to the fact that cyclists can be virtually unseen on streets to motorists failing to obey traffic laws. We understand these facts along with how to successfully represent a cyclist victim who has been negligently injured by a motorist.
While studies show that certain groups are at higher risk for pedestrian accidents, it is widely understood that every pedestrian is at risk for being involved in an accident with a motorist. These accidents can be caused by a variety of factors from improperly designed intersections to driver inattentiveness, confusion and/or aggressive driving. For any pedestrian negligently injured by a motorist, we are ready to help.
Product liability is a specialized area of personal injury law dealing with defects in the design or manufacture of a product or a manufacturer's failure to provide proper product warnings. These cases often involve complex scientific and technical issues and are vigorously defended by manufacturers and their insurers. We have successfully handled product liability cases and continue to do so in the interest of public safety.
A property owner has a duty to remedy or provide warning of a dangerous property condition that they know about or should be aware of and may be responsible for injuries that negligently occur on their property. This includes trip and fall incidents caused by hazardous ground deviations in sidewalks and flooring. In these cases, we work with experts to demonstrate dangerous conditions in reaching successful outcomes.
Approximately 6,000 workers are fatally injured in worksite accidents each year. In the event of job site negligence, at-fault third parties are responsible for the costs of medical treatment, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of ability to return to work, and, in the most severe cases, loss of life. We strive to secure proper recourse in these cases to help provide relief for anyone suffering from work-related injuries.

Our mission is to always provide the highest level of care to our clients in an effective and compassionate manner.
