Car, Truck and Motorcycle Accidents
Motor vehicle accidents can cause permanent and disabling injuries, and unfortunately sometimes death. Injuries can range from sprains, strains and bruises to broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord injuries and death. Many victims of accidents try to handle their own injury cases, hoping the insurance company will settle their case fairly. Unfortunately that rarely happens. The insurance company is obligated to their stockholders and policyholders, not to people injured in accidents. Hoping the insurance company does the right thing will not pay for your medical bills, lost wages, suffering or property damage.

Work Place Injuries
Injuries suffered at job sites can be severe and life altering. Laws are in place to protect the health and safety of persons injured at job sites.
Dog bites and dog attacks can result in serious injuries or even death. It is estimated that 2% of Americans are bitten by dogs every year. Based on these statistics there are approximately 5 million American adults and kids who are bitten by dogs each year.
In addition, more than 65% of the time, a fatal dog bite happens with a dog that was left unchained on the owner's property. Unrestrained dogs away from the owner's premises account for 20% of fatal dog bites and the remainder of the fatal dog bite statistics are made up of dog bites from restrained dogs.
When these attacks occur the owner of the dog is held responsible for the actions of the dog. If you or loved one has been attacked or injured by an animal or dog, it is imperative that you be made aware of your legal rights to recovery.
