When can a personal injury lawsuit be filed?
Personal injury lawsuits are filed when a party suffers injury due to another's negligence. Negligence, by definition, is when a person fails to act as a reasonably careful person would.
What financial compensation am I entitled to?
If you have been injured due to the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to compensation for:
- Medical malpractice – When a physician fails to provide a standard of care consistent with others in their profession
- Truck accidents – When a trucker is negligent in their driving and responsibilities and causes an accident. Due to the nature of vehicles involved, truck accidents often result in serious personal injury
- Automobile accidents – If another party was negligent in their vehicle operating responsibilities and causes an accident
- Nursing home abuse – When those entrusted to the care of nursing home professionals are abused or neglected by the staff

What are my attorney fees?
Attorney fees in personal injury cases are allocated based on a percentage of amounts recovered. However, the fees are contingent upon you receiving a court or jury award or settlement. If you do not receive compensation, we do not receive an attorney fee.
