Personal injury law provides a remedy when your body, mind, dignity or reputation has been harmed because of the wrongful act of another. A personal injury lawsuit may exist due to other’s actions or defective products. The most common personal injury cases are vehicular accidents, but other common types of personal injury cases include slip and fall, dog attacks, medical malpractice, sexual abuse, unfair employment practices, slander and wrongful death cases. Worker’s Compensation concerns injuries that occur at work and the compensation one deserves for that injury.
If you have suffered an injury due to the carelessness of another or at work, you may be able to recover compensation. Depending on the circumstances surrounding your injury, we may be able to recover the following on your behalf:
Past and future medical bills
Compensation for pain and suffering (not for worker’s compensation)
Our firm has the skill that it takes to recover compensation for those that have suffered from medical malpractice. We know that while most medical providers do offer excellent levels of care, not all providers hold themselves to the requisite standard of care. When these medical professionals fall below this standard of care, they may have committed medical malpractice. Physicians, nurses, all members of hospital staff, and any other individual providing care to a patient may be guilty of medical malpractice. You may want to ask yourself the following questions:
Is your condition significantly worse now, following treatment?
Are your symptoms not commonly associated with the medical procedure you underwent?
Are you unsatisfied with the physician’s explanation for your symptoms?
These questions will help determine whether or not you have a medical malpractice claim. If you answered yes to any of the above questions, it may be necessary to consult with an attorney to discuss how to proceed with your claim.
