To find about the many areas of personal injury law that our team is prepared to assist you with, read on or click any of the following to learn even more about a partiicular area of our practice:

Automobile Insurance
For those that are injured in an accident they may rely on their insurance or the insurance of another driver involved to cover the expenses. Unfortunately, they do not always pay the full amount of the cost.

Bicycle Accidents
Bicycle accidents can lead to unfortunate results when the rider has only the protection of their helmet and their clothing to protect them when struck on the road by a car that fails to notice them.

Birth Injuries
There are a high number of injuries that can occur during the birth process leaving a child with short or long term affects. Those that are injured can suffer any number of repercussions that debilitate them in countless ways including physically, socially or developmentally.

Burn Injuries
Burns can be from electricity, radiation, friction, heat, chemicals or light. The seriousness of them can range and there are different degrees that are used to categorize them. They can leave those injured with minimal damage to the surface of skin or harm that goes all the way down to the bone.

Car Accidents
Thousands suffer serious injuries that are the result of a car accident. When the large mass and force of vehicles collide, the protection of a car is not always enough to protect drivers and passengers. This can leave individuals involved suffering a wide range of harm including catastrophic injuries.

Catastrophic Accidents
When an injury or accident occurs that is not out of the ordinary and far more severe that the average accident it is known as catastrophic. The injuries that follow are life threatening and seriously debilitating. They may involve traumatic brain injury, damage to the spinal cord or burn injuries. The affects can be very costly to those that suffer.

Defective Products
Not all products work the way they are meant to. Before a product is sold it goes through a number of steps and during any process an error can occur. Sometimes an overlooked product or item that was not properly tested can end up hurting a consumer. When it does sellers, manufacturers and other involved should be held liable.

Dog Bites
While dogs are kept by many as domestic pets, it does not take away their nature to protect or attack. Many owners do not take enough precaution when it comes to training their dog or restraining it so that it is unable to harm others. A dog may get out of the yard or be off the leash and is able to attack an innocent bystander.

Drunk Driving Accidents
Thousands of accidents occur on a yearly basis in the country by those that drink and drive. Since being under the influence of alcohol makes it difficult to properly assess the roads and make correct judgment calls, those that are driving intoxicated can cause unnecessary accidents that could have been easily avoided.

Grounds for Personal Injury Claims
Not just anyone that is hurt is able to file a law suit against someone they believe is responsible. In order to be awarded compensation it is necessary to be able to prove that the responsible party acted recklessly or negligently and as a result that led to an injury.

Medical Bills
One of the most significant repercussions of an accident is the cost of medical expenses. In order for a person to be able to heal correctly they will seek medical attention that can cost them greatly. Medical bills do not always end after just one visit but can continue on.

Medical Malpractice
When we put our health in the hands of professionals it does not always provide the outcome we hope for. Many deal with a case of medical malpractice that actually puts them in a worse off spot than they were to begin with. They can incur an infection or additional injury and in some cases death occurs.

Motorcycle Accidents
While they are a convenient and enjoyable way to get around, motorcycles can be easy to get in an accident and when one does occur there is not the same level of protection that other vehicles provide meaning the risk can be increased greatly.

Negligence
A high number of accidents stem from a simple act of negligence. When a person is careless and does not exercise enough caution it can lead to an outcome that is extremely devastating. Negligence leaves greater room for error and mistakes that could have been avoided.

Nursing Home Abuse
Elderly people are often placed in nursing homes in the hopes that they will be able to have the level of care they need provided. It can be difficult for family members to provide all of the attention that is needed and they may look to a home as an alternative. Abuse can occur in any home in many forms. It may be emotional or physical and is extremely harmful to those it is against.

Pedestrian Accidents
Accidents on the roads do not only occur between vehicles. They can also involve pedestrians that are crossing the streets and are struck by a car that was not paying close enough attention. Pedestrians are left to incur the force of the car with no vehicle of their own to guard them.

Premises Liability
Owners of property are held liable by the government to ensure that their land it safe for anyone that comes on it. This means looking out for cracks, construction faults, holes or any other area that can lead to an injury. When they fail to they can be left responsible.

Product Liability
Those that create a product take on a certain level of responsibility. They should test their product before putting it out on the market to ensure it is both safe as well as does what it is supposed to. If their product proves to be dangerous and injures consumers as a result they are liable for the damages that are caused.

Sex Abuse
Abuse can vary in the degrees of severity but in many cases can lead a person to face injury. Abuse that is sexual in nature is also extremely damaging and can cause any level of harm on a physical and emotional level. Often this abuse occurs between family members.

Slip & Fall
Surfaces can be slippery as well as uneven increasing the danger of a fall. When the rain makes the ground wet many people may find themselves having trouble keeping their balance. For some a fall can lead to an injury and for many that are older any type of fall is detrimental to their well-being.

Truck Accidents
When a truck is involved in an accident it can mean that a greater amount of damage will occur. Trucks are a large force that when collided with another object can cause catastrophic effects. Each year truck accidents claim the lives of victims and leave others with physical repercussions.

Underinsured Motorist
While a driver may technically have insurance, it may not always cover the cost of an accident. This can leave victims unable to receive the care they need. Costs of an accident are high and it is not uncommon for insurance of some to not be substantial enough for the price inflicted.

Uninsured Motorist
While it is the law of the state that every person that is driving on the roads needs to be covered by an insurance plan, that is not always the case. Many choose to forgo this mandatory law and take the risk of driving while not covered. They put not only themselves in danger but other drivers at risk as well.

Wrongful Death
One of the worst types of cases that can occur is when an accident results in wrongful death. There is no limit to how this can occur and it may be from medical malpractice, a car accident or even a defective product. When it does occur it leaves the loved ones of the individuals shattered. Justice should be sought when this occurs.

Accidents Caused by Negligence

If an accident was due to the negligent actions of another, the responsible party may be liable to the victim for damages including:

  • Lost earnings
  • Medical bills
  • Pain and suffering

Do not accept an insurance offer before speaking with a trusted personal injury lawyer from Squires Law Office, P.C.
