Types of Injury Claims We Handle
Personal injury is a particularly broad area of the law, encompassing many dangerous situations, including:
- Auto accidents, including texting while driving and drunk driving
- Trucking crashes due to negligence on the part of truckers or trucking companies
- Dangerous or defective products, including toys, tools, and medications
- Nursing home negligence and abuse, including dehydration and malnutrition
- Medical malpractice cases involving birth injuries, surgical errors, and more
This list is far from exhaustive. In general, if someone creates a hazardous situation that causes injury to another person, the negligent party can be sued under personal injury laws. This is true for everything from motorcycle collisions and mesothelioma/asbestos exposure to slip-and-fall injuries.
Don’t Pay For Another Person’s Negligence
In some situations, people who have been injured in accidents feel reluctant to file lawsuits against the negligent parties who caused their injuries. Victims may feel embarrassed by the accident, even if it wasn’t their fault. They may feel overwhelmed by cold insurance adjusters who tell them their claim is worth far less than it is.
The fact is, however, that everyone — doctors, building owners, and drivers alike — is subject to strict rules and standards that govern their behavior. If you have been injured because someone else failed to live up to these standards, you shouldn’t be forced to suffer economic losses. You have suffered enough already. Our Peoria injury lawyers are here to help you take the appropriate steps to recover the money you need to put your life back together.
