Seeking compensation for you after a personal injury
After an accident occurs due to someone else’s negligence or recklessness, an attorney can help you seek monetary damages for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We provide representation for the following types of personal injury issues, among others:
- Auto accidents. Although most car accidents are relatively minor fender-benders, others are serious enough to result in severe injuries and property damage.
- Animal attacks. Dog owners are liable for the injuries their animals cause, and must take proper steps to prevent these attacks from taking place. These injuries are particularly common among children.
- Medical malpractice. When a doctor or other medical professional makes a serious mistake, such as a misdiagnosis, surgical error or medication error, the results can be devastating. You may need to seek compensation through a medical malpractice lawsuit.
- Slip and fall accidents. The owners of public and private property have a responsibility to keep their premises reasonably safe for customers and guests. Common injuries occur due to slippery surfaces, blocked walkways and falling objects.
- Workers’ compensation. If you’ve suffered a workplace injury, an attorney can help you file a workers’ compensation claim to ensure you get what you need to cover your medical bills and other expenses as you focus on your physical recovery.
Helping you navigate challenging family law issues
Family-related legal issues are often very difficult, as they involve challenging decisions paired with emotional issues. Our experienced divorce and family law attorneys help with the following:
- Child custody and support. After a divorce or separation, one of your most pressing concerns is the health and wellbeing of your kids. Namely, you need to address your child custody arrangement and child support payments moving forward.
- Spousal support. In some situations, it may be necessary for one former spouse to provide spousal support, also called alimony, to the other. Alimony is almost always temporary.
- Property division. If you’ve been married for a certain period of time, you likely have collected shared marital assets and property. An important aspect of divorce is dividing this property in a fair and equitable manner.
