Practices

Personal Injury

Personal injury law includes injuries, physically or psychologically, as a result of the negligence or wrongdoing of another person, company, government agency, or other entity. Physical injuries to your person can arise from being involved in an automobile accident, airline or other common carrier accident, being injured as a result of a dangerous or otherwise unsafe product, injury due to negligence of a property owner and other injury-causing situations. Psychological injuries are typically caused by psychological trauma associated with serious and/or disfiguring physical injuries.

Workers Compensation

Workers’ Compensation (sometimes called workers comp or workman’s comp) is insurance that an employer is required by law to carry in case an employee is injured on the job, becomes ill due to circumstances surrounding their job, becomes temporarily or permanently disabled, or even if death results from their job. It is your right as an employee to receive medical treatment at the employer’s expense as long as treatment is reasonable and necessary to treat the injury. You are also entitled to receive wage loss benefits while you are unable to return to work, and for permanent disability.

Social Security Disability

The Social Security Administration (SSA), provides benefits for people who have become disabled and no longer able to perform substantial, gainful work. If you are medically disabled and unable to work due to severe impairment, you may be entitled benefits from the SSA and can receive monthly payments to supplement your income.

Medical Malpractice

Medical Malpractice occurs when a negligent act or omission by a doctor or other medical professional results in damage or harm to a patient. Negligence by a medical professional can include an error in diagnosis, treatment, or illness management. If such negligence results in injury to a patient, a legal case for medical malpractice can arise against the physician or a hospital.
