As such, please contact our personal injury team immediately to discuss your rights and responsibilities so that you may receive the maximum compensation for your motor vehicle injury.
Any injury on property owned by someone else may be the basis of for legal action, including slip-and-falls or trip-and-falls on sidewalks and staircases, dog bites, negligent security, or any hazardous condition.

When a personal injury results in a fatality, the survivors of the victim may have the right to pursue a wrongful death action against the negligent party. Please be advised that the last date a loved one or family member may file a lawsuit in a wrongful death matter is shorter than an ordinary negligence claim. Therefore, it is important to contact our personal injury team without delay to discuss your rights to recovery on behalf of the deceased person.
