Medical malpractice: Medical malpractice occurs when medical professionals, facilities or hospitals fail to provide adequate treatment to patients, resulting in personal injury or wrongful death. Doctors, nurses, medical technicians, psychiatrists, dentists, hospitals, clinics and other health care providers may be held accountable.
Product liability: Product liability claims may be made when defects in certain products cause injuries or death. Defective products may include medications, machines, tools, equipment and toys.
Car accidents: Many personal injuries are a result of car accidents. Distracted driving, drunk driving, dangerous road conditions and speeding are some of the most common causes of car accidents. Car accident victims can have significant medical costs as well as emotional trauma.
Truck accidents: Truck accidents are usually very serious. Because of the heavy weight of trucks, passengers of other vehicles involved in truck accidents may have life-threatening or fatal injuries.
Spinal cord injuries: Spinal cord injuries are serious injuries to the spinal column that may result in a loss of mobility or feeling. They are frequently caused by trauma resulting from a vehicular accident, surgical error, construction site mishap, playground accident, accidental fall, chemical exposure, defective product or machinery failure.
Workers’ compensation: Most injured workers do not know, nor would their employers voluntarily divulge this information to them, that the Workers’ Compensation Board is not the only place an injured worker can turn to for compensation after a debilitating injury.
