Injuries Can Affect Anyone, Anywhere, Any Time.
Personal injury lawsuits arise, as the name implies, when someone is injured. The underlying injury may either be physical or emotional, and it can arise from a variety of sources or types of conduct. Some of the most common types of personal injuries that give rise to legal liability on the part of the wrongdoer include slip-and-fall cases, automobile accident cases, assaults and batteries, medical malpractice actions, and products liability lawsuits.
The general goal of personal injury actions is to assign blame or liability for the injury to the parties whose actions caused it and to require them to compensate the injured person for the losses sustained. If you or someone you know has been injured by the actions of another, it is essential that you seek legal counsel from an experienced personal injury attorney at once so that you can preserve your rights and protect your future.

No Recovery – No Fee
Personal injury cases are handled on a contingency fee basis which means we don’t get paid until you receive compensation for your injuries. In most cases, the matter is settled without going to court, which allows you to receive a fair and reasonable recovery without the added expense of a trial.
We are experienced in handling complex personal injury cases. We have the expertise to represent people who have sustained life-changing injuries such as spinal cord, brain, and other traumatic injuries, as a result of someone else’s negligence.
In the case of a serious motor vehicle accident, for example, you may have life-changing injuries that are not your fault. You may have lingering pain, scarring, or an inability to engage in activities you once enjoyed. Your family may be suffering as well - from the changes in you, from losing your companionship, from losing your income if you are unable to work.
