As we go about our daily lives—driving to work, pick up groceries, going to a restaurant—we usually do not expect to be injured. Yet, accidents and injuries can occur anywhere and at any time. Oftentimes, accidents are caused by other individuals who are not taking the necessary precautions the way they should. For example, another person on the road might be driving while distracted (texting or talking on the phone), or a business owner might be paying more attention to selling rather than keeping premises safe for customers.

When individuals are hurt in accidents, the severity of their injuries can span from minor scratches and bruises to life-threatening injuries. We assist victims who have suffered from all types of injuries, including broken bones, whiplash and other soft tissue injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and much more. Injuries can lead to costs such as those for emergency room care, surgery, long-term medical care, physical therapy and more. This is not even including the lost wages a person experiences due to time out of work. Securing compensation through a claim or lawsuit allows the victim to have the necessary support he or she needs for physical recovery. Family members of individuals who have died from accidents caused by others can recoup costs through wrongful death cases.
Accidents can occur while a person is behind the wheel, such as in a car, in a truck or on a motorcycle. A traffic accident victim can be a driver, passenger or a pedestrian. In some personal injury cases, the victim is a person who visited a public place that did not meet necessary safety standards. For example, a store could have had cracks in the ground, insufficient lighting or a lack of signage that led to an injury (such as a slip and fall). These types of accidents can be handled through premises liability claims and lawsuits.
