Areas of Practice
Traffic accidents are the most common and leading cause of personal injury claims and lawsuits. Every year, thousands of individuals are injured on the roads and highways of our country through the negligent actions or inactions of others. Injuries may be caused by drivers who are drunk, drug-impaired, reckless, distracted by cell phones, texting, or other activities while driving, drivers who speed, disobey traffic laws, or who are inattentive.

Motorcyclists are generally at greater risk for serious injury than motorists or their passengers. When a motorcyclist is hit by another vehicle, he or she has little protection from the impact or from hitting the pavement, other vehicles, or objects. Thus, serious and often catastrophic injuries can result. Click here to read more about motorcycle accidents.
Head and spinal cord injuries are among the most serious that can be inflicted upon a person. Head trauma, brain injury, and spinal cord damage can result in long-term and often irreversible impairment requiring months, years, or a lifetime of medical care or personal assistance. When such devastating injuries are the result of another’s negligence, the victim has the right to financial compensation. Read more about head and spinal cord injuries.
Being injured through the use or consumption of a defective or dangerous consumer product falls under the legal category of product liability. Those who are injured by using such a product for the purpose and in the manner in which it was intended may be entitled to damages from the product manufacturer, distributor, or supplier.

Medical malpractice refers to a lack of standard care or a deviation from accepted medical practice at the hands of a medical professional which results in harm to a patient. Such harm or injury can be inflicted by doctors, nurses, therapists, dentists, surgeons, anesthesiologists, psychologists, psychiatrists, clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, or any other medical practitioner. These types of cases can result in a wide range of injuries, from serious infections to birth injuries to surgical errors. Read more about medical malpractice here.
Work-Related Accidents On the job injuries can occur in any occupation and at any work site, from construction sites to warehouses to office buildings. Workers’ compensation covers work-related injuries, giving workers medical benefits as well as financial compensation for lost wages. In some cases, where negligence from a third party has contributed to injuries, a third party injury claim may also be filed. Read more about work-related accidents here.
