Personal Injury Claims

Personal injury law encompasses all types of physical and psychological injuries, loss and fatalities that may result from negligence, recklessness or intentional acts. The most common types of personal injury claims are Transportation, Public Property and Slip and Fall which we discuss in greater detail below. If you have sustained any injuries or suffering, contact our law office to determine the options available to you.

Transportation Accidents

Many serious injuries involving transportation occur during automobile accidents, but also include bus, truck, train and motorcycle accidents. In most automobile accident cases, the primary issue is to determine who is at fault. Whether you’re a pedestrian walking in the crosswalk, or exercising on a bike, board or blades, automobiles must properly share the road with you.

Slip and Fall

A “slip and fall” accident may occur when someone trips over a broken sidewalk or a grate, slips on a slippery substance like oil, ice or water, or are injured by a falling object. These types of injuries commonly occur in parking lots, at restaurants, supermarkets, and shopping malls or inside a building. Dangerous conditions such as torn carpeting, narrow or poorly maintained stairs or abrupt changes in flooring may be a contributing factor.

Public and Government Property Injuries

While the most common premises liability cases involve a Slip and Fall, other cases may include injuries sustained from exposure to toxic chemicals or mold, lead poisoning, or improperly maintained equipment, defective construction may also be to blame. Inadequate security in a poorly lit parking lot may result in serious injuries. If an individual becomes injured while acting in an unexpected, unauthorized or dangerously careless way; however, the public or government property owner or occupier may limit their responsibility.
