Our accident and personal injury practice serves as many as 2,000 clients per year, and every case is supervised by a certified trial lawyer.
Our areas of practice include automobile accidents, birth injuries, construction accidents, traumatic brain injury, product liability, medical malpractice, motorcycle accidents, nursing home negligence, on the job injuries, social security disability, tractor trailer accidents, slip and fall accidents, defective drug cases, class actions, toxic torts and many more.
As a result of our experience and through careful assessment and preparation, our accident and personal injury lawyers help victims and their families obtain cash settlements for lost wages, medical expenses and pain and suffering. Sometimes these positive outcomes are achieved only by going to trial. However, in most cases our accident and personal injury lawyers are able to obtain favorable settlements outside of the courtroom, making the experience less stressful for our clients.
We have developed Accidental Injury Trauma Teams of lawyers and paralegals, who offer clients the benefit of an immediate response. These teams are assigned to specific types of traumatic injuries, including those involving the spine, neurological disorders, bone fractures, amputations, death and disfigurement, and the head. Each team has special knowledge of the physical and emotional aspects of these types of injuries and is prepared to provide clients with a wide range of services and counsel. We have developed an extensive network of rehabilitation specialists and physicians to whom we refer clients or from whom we seek second opinions.
Additionally, we maintain a nationwide network of attorneys who are able to provide our clients with assistance should they become injured in another state.
