Similar to bicycle and motorcycle accidents, pedestrians do not have thousands of pounds of metal and hard molded plastic to cushion the blow of an accident. When a motor vehicle strikes someone on foot, the harm can be catastrophic.
Taxi, Lyft, or Uber Accidents
Just like any other car, rides for hire get into accidents. These cases can be more complicated than the standard car crash, particularly because of insurance issues. Still, we know how to navigate those aspects and hold the careless party liable for your injuries.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
A head injury can cause permanent damage to brain tissue, which can change a person for life. MedlinePlus reports that cognitive impairment, personality changes, and control over how the body moves are but a few examples of things that can happen after a TBI.

Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
Every year, vulnerable elderly or disabled people get mistreated to the point of physical injury at long-term care facilities. We can investigate and take action to protect your loved one if you suspect nursing home abuse or neglect. This mistreatment can take the form of physical, sexual, financial, or emotional abuse.
Slip and Fall Accidents
You might have a slip and fall claim if you got hurt on someone else’s property because of a hazardous condition. Slip and fall injuries can cause fractures that lead to loss of mobility and independence.
Premises Liability Cases
A premises liability case can happen on either residential or commercial property. The owner might be liable if someone gets hurt because of a dangerous condition on the property that the owner knew (or should have known) about but did not correct to protect people from harm. You could even hire a lawyer after falling on public property, such as on a sidewalk in a city park.
We can help to preserve the evidence and build your case for compensation if you get hurt on the job.

We help U.S. citizens and people with other statuses, like undocumented workers.
If your close relative died because of someone else’s wrongful actions, whether accidental or intentional, we might be able to pursue additional damages for legal beneficiaries. The amount and kinds of compensation will depend on the facts of the situation. It is possible to get economic and non-economic damages.
Children cannot bring their own lawsuits, but we can represent parents seeking justice when a child suffers harm because of an adult’s carelessness. Many child injuries take place at school, daycare centers, camps, and at locations with other child-focused activities.
If you do not see your type of injury case on this list, do not worry.
