Car accidents, typically caused by drivers who are driving recklessly or failing to obey traffic laws, can result in extreme pain, disability or death.
Upon notice of an auto accident, the responsible party has their insurance company team of adjustors, investigators and attorneys on the scene finding ways to limit the liability of the insurance company and minimize the amount of money they may be required to pay the injured auto accident victim. Many are patients in the hospital, helpless, in pain and undergoing medical treatment after the time of the accident.
Our legal, medical and investigative team collaborates with a film producer, graphic artist or computer animationist to clearly illustrate the liability of the responsible driver and document our client’s recovery. This detailed documentary is evidence for a mediator, judge or jury to determine the defendant driver’s responsibility to pay the our client’s damages.
Construction Site Accidents
Construction Zone Accidents happen due to inadequate or non-existent personnel to control traffic, unclearly marked construction zone areas, poorly placed signs and barricades, improperly trained construction workers, defective equipment, crane or ladder malfunctions.
Typically, layers of responsible parties: contractors, subcontractors, architects, engineers and other companies have failed to adhere to state and federal regulatory safety standards. Developing testimony of witnesses and experts to show the violation of these standards to a judge and jury is crucial early in the case development.
Although the proper safety practices can decrease a worker or passerby’s risk of being injured in a construction zone, it is also the duty of contractors to ensure that warnings are issued in these hazardous construction areas. Construction accidents are preventable, but may occur because of the negligence of a person, supervisor and company.
Devastating injuries that can result from railroad accidents include paralysis, amputation, brain injury, spinal cord injury, and death. The law requires that victims may recover for pain and suffering, medical expenses, property damage, lost wages and loss of earning capacity and other compensable damages. The railroad and transportation has vital standards and regulations that are often violated resulting in injuries or death. The types of railroad accidents include collisions with other trains, derailment, collisions with passenger vehicles, improperly maintained tracks, mechanical failure and driver inexperience and fatigue.
Refineries are repositories for dangerous chemicals, petro agents and other combustible industrial products which combined with pipeline defects, worker mistakes and safety violations create accidents resulting in death or injuries. Worker’s compensation cannot begin to cover the medical bills and loss of wages, not to mention the medical bills, pain, suffering, disability and disfigurement for the injuries incurred.

Our legal team of experts is experienced in successfully recreating the incident leading to the explosion or fall, showing the responsible parties’ negligent conduct, interdelineate the safety rules violated and track the medical care and disability of our client.
