  • Medical Malpractice - Signing a consent form does not waive your rights to proper medical care. When a physician, surgeon, nurse or other health care professional or facility deviates from the accepted standard of care and causes injury or death, medical malpractice may have occurred. Our firm has the resources, and a network of medical professionals, that are required to adequately assess the validity of a medical malpractice claim and seek justice on behalf of injured patients. We handle medical malpractice claims involving birth injuries, surgical errors, failure to diagnose or treat, medication mistakes and other medical negligence. There is a $500,000 cap on medical malpractice recoveries, and we will work hard to see you receive the maximum amount you are entitled to.
  • Car Accidents - Our lawyers handle personal injury claims arising from auto accidents, trucking accidents and motorcycle accidents. In many of these situations, our clients are dealing with serious injuries such as back injuries, neck injuries, spinal cord injuries and broken bones. Our firm knows medical professionals who will provide honest assessments. Far too often, insurance companies place pressure on doctors to downplay the severity of injuries. It is difficult for injured people to know which doctors will give an unbiased opinion. We are committed to obtaining fair compensation for our injured clients and getting them the medical attention they need to recover as fully as possible from their car wreck or truck crash injuries. We also represent family members who have lost loved ones in fatal accidents and need assistance with wrongful death lawsuits.
  • Maritime and Offshore Accidents - Our firm provides experienced help to seamen and others working aboard ships and on oil rigs. We are dedicated to helping workers under the Jones Act and others injured on and around the water seek full recovery for their injuries.
  • Products Liability Claims - Our firm represents people who have been injured by defective products. We have experience holding product designers, manufacturers and retailers accountable for their negligence.
  • Slip and Fall Accidents - We handle slip and fall accidents occurring on various types of public and private properties. Slip and fall accidents can occur because of poorly maintained stairways, loose handrails, raised and cracked sidewalks and slippery floors. Property owners have a duty to warn tenants and visitors of dangerous conditions and take adequate steps to fix the dangerous conditions.
  • Professional Liability - Our firm represents clients in professional liability matters involving legal malpractice, pharmacy malpractice, accounting malpractice and other areas where a professional owes a fiduciary duty to a client.
