Car accidents result in untold injuries and billions of dollars in property damage. A majority of automobile accidents are caused by negligent driving. Regardless of your injuries, after calling the police and getting immediate medical care, the best thing to do after a car accident is to contact an attorney.
Establishing a relationship with a personal injury attorney soon after a car accident can help protect many of the rights that you have as an injured party. Additionally, if you do not take certain measures, such as obtaining medical treatment within fourteen days of the accident, you may be forever barred in obtaining medical benefits from your insurance company.
Remember, insurance companies are not in the business of paying claims. In fact, insurance companies lose money when they pay claims. It is important to hire a personal injury attorney who is familiar with dealing with the insurance companies and negotiating claims on behalf of their clients.
The vast majority of personal injury claims result from either automobile accidents or premises liability cases. Property and business owners have a responsibility to maintain safe conditions on the property they control including providing adequate security and a structurally sound and hazard free environment for customers and employees. What does that mean to the public? That means that business owners are reasonable to provide an environment where it is safe to shop and spend time in.
The most common types of premises liability claims are slip and falls and trip and falls. Our personal injury attorneys understand that it can sometimes be embarrassing to slip and fall or trip and fall at a business or in public. However, the simple truth is that some of worst injuries can occur as a result of a slip and fall or trip and fall accident. When your body is not prepared for a fall it can result in catastrophic injuries.
Another type of premises liability case is when a bar, nightclub, or restaurant fails to provide adequate security to its customers. Bars and restaurants owe a duty to their patrons to provide a safe environment. Sometimes the lines are blurred due to the consumption of alcohol. Bars and nightclubs have a duty to maintain a safe environment and to kick out anyone who appears to be a threat to others.
Additionally, bars and restaurants have a duty to kick the dangerous parties out properly. What does that mean? That means that bars and nightclubs must have protocols in place to safely remove patrons from the property.
Other types of premises liability accidents include:
- Swimming Pool Drowning
- Inadequate Security / Crime Attacks
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Drowning Accidents
- Injuries Caused by Cars, Bikes, Grills and other products
Accidents in construction zones are the direct result of negligence, but the cause of that negligence can be wide-ranging.
Some common factors in construction accidents include:
- Defective Tools

Construction site employees are often entitled to benefits under Workers’ Compensation after suffering job-related injuries.
However, in some circumstances, a third-party may be held liable for resulting damages.
