Personal injury cases also encompass defects in products which cause injury; failure to warn of dangerous design defects or product malfunction causing loss of limbs; burns to the face or body and disfigurement, plus ongoing expenses for medical care and the need for prosthetic devices, wheelchairs, artificial limbs, crutches, walkers or wheelchairs.
Personal injury cases also include injuries because of premises liability caused by poor construction and building code violations affecting the safety of occupants such as poor lighting on stairwells, no handrails or faulty handrails.
Accidents involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles and boats all can cause serious injuries. When auto accidents involve negligence, it is possible to sue for compensation from negligent parties and their insurers.
If you or a loved one was injured or killed by a drunk driver, Michael will help you in getting proper compensation from insurers and negligent parties.
The statute of limitations for wrongful death lawsuits is one year. It is important to act quickly to preserve your right to sue and claim damages for the death of a loved one due to negligence.
People have a lawful expectation that the products they purchase will not injure them. If you or someone you love was injured by a defective product, Michael will help you sue for compensation.
If you slip and fall, trip and fall or simply fall on a dangerous property due to an undisclosed hazard, the owner or tenant of the property may be held responsible for your injury damages. Common situations include tripping on uneven sidewalks or unsecured rugs and falling down stairs due to an unsecured railing.
Insurance companies do not always pay on claims when they should. Michael will help you sue for damages when insurers fail to pay valid claims.
If you are negligently injured on public property, by a government worker or through the actions of a government organization, you may be able to recover damages for your injuries.
Contractors are required to provide safe workplaces for their employees. If you were injured while on the job, Michael may be able to secure damages for your injuries from a subcontractor, contractor, project developer or property owner.
Sometimes employers cut corners by failing to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. Michael can help you get compensation by suing your employer for your injuries and lost wages.
When a negligent party’s conduct is especially egregious, punitive damages of multiple times the value of a claim may be possible.
Although this is not a category of personal injury, property damage claims often accompany injury claims after accidents. Michael assists clients with concerns relating to diminution in value, loss of use and the value of a vehicle.
