Whether your injury occurred at home, on the road, a sidewalk, in a building, or on the job, we represent clients in all personal injury areas, including:
Slips and falls and other property-related accidents – Slick surfaces, broken steps, cracked or raised sidewalks, or poor lighting can lead to slips and falls and serious injuries. Property owners are responsible for taking reasonable care in maintaining the premises.
Dog bites – Dog bite injuries may take a long time to heal and have serious consequences, such as scarring and nerve damage. Our experienced team knows how to get the compensation you deserve.
Wrongful death – We use our compassion and our legal skills to fight for families of fatal accident victims and bring those responsible to justice.
Motor vehicle and motorcycle accidents – If you’ve suffered whiplash, neck, spinal cord or other injuries from a motor vehicle accident of any kind, we will help you get full compensation.
Construction accidents – With the recent construction boom, the number of deaths and injuries from falls, fires and explosions, and other hazards have, unfortunately, risen. Besides workers’ compensation, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim.
Police brutality – Law enforcement officers have a duty to protect and serve their fellow citizens, but if they abuse their power, we will fight for your rights and hold them accountable.
Bicycles and buses – Injuries from bus and bicycle collisions can be severe and deadly. We’ll help you throughout the process of your claim.
Fire accidents and explosions – These incidents can cause the most serious injuries and suffering, and may involve several parties. We have the resources to investigate and build a strong case.
Elevator and escalator accidents – Though elevators and escalators are generally safe, accidents can and do happen, from equipment malfunctions, improper adjustments, or other causes. These cases involve special local installation, inspection, and maintenance laws. We will prepare your case carefully to ensure you receive enough compensation.
How Long Do I Have to File My Personal Injury Claim?
It’s important to act quickly. The statute of limitations, the time you have to file a personal injury claim, depends on the type of case. If you’re pursuing a negligence claim, you have a three-year time limit from the date of the accident or injury. In many cases, wrongful death claims have a two-year limit. For cases against a public entity or employee, you must file a written Notice of Claim within 90 days of the accident. Determining the amount of time you have left can be complicated.
The best time to file a claim is sooner rather than later. Unfortunately, as time goes on, crucial evidence can be lost or wear away and witnesses may no longer be available. We’ll investigate your accident quickly and thoroughly, talk to witnesses, gather evidence, consult with medical professionals, and hire experts. We’ll ease the process for you to give you peace of mind to help you focus on your recovery.
