When you are injured in an accident, it can be painful, confusing and frightening. Everything that immediately follows can seem to happen in a blur. You may have trouble understanding the details of the accident. If you are like most people, you may not know what to do next. You may not know where to turn to deal with the challenges ahead of you – including fighting with insurance companies, missed work and mounting medical bills. As a personal injury attorney, I want you to know that you do not have to go through this alone.
At my Albany area personal injury firm, I help clients like you with a wide range of personal injury cases, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents, workplace injuries, slip and falls and more. I understand what you are going through, and I am ready to use my extensive experience in personal injury law to help you obtain compensation for what happened.
Common Personal Injury Cases
Personal injury law centers around helping people who were hurt in accidents through no fault of their own. Some of the personal injury cases I work with include:
When you are driving you have an expectation that other drivers will obey the law and the rules of the road. Yet everyday people ignore or purposefully break traffic laws. They may be late for work, they may be intoxicated or they may be malicious. Whatever the reason, reckless behavior on the road can lead to serious injuries and death.
My firm can help you to successfully pursue damages for this reckless behavior, both from the driver and the driver’s insurance provider. I can also ensure that your own insurance company treats you fairly.
As a rider, you are more exposed to injury than most automobile drivers realize. One careless move from a car or truck driver can cause you life-altering injuries, if the accident does not kill you. My firm helps riders get compensation for injuries caused by reckless drivers, and we are ready to do the same for you.
You have a reasonable expectation of safety when you go to your job. There are numerous rules and regulations in place to protect you at the workplace, whether you work in an office or on a construction site. Yet some employers try to cut corners, leaving you and your coworkers exposed to injury.
While workers’ compensation may cover part of your needs, it rarely covers all of them. Sometimes, you do not even get the level of workers’ compensation you should be entitled to. I can set things straight with all parties through aggressive legal action, helping you get the money you need following the accident.
Sometimes when you are working in certain situations – like in construction – your injury may be caused by a party other than your employer. Pursuing a sub-contractor or faulty equipment involves going after a third party, something I am familiar with. Any damages you collect from a third party claim will be in addition to your existing workers’ compensation claim.
Premises liability covers accidents that happen in a place of business due to negligence. Slip and fall accidents are some of the most common, when a company fails to protect customers from slippery or damaged surfaces. Even a small fall can break bones and cause life-altering injuries. I understand how to pursue a successful premises liability case. By talking to witnesses and gathering evidence, I can build a case that will get you the compensation you need.
The injuries sustained in a personal injury accident may stay with you for a lifetime. Even if they do not, you may still suffer pain and lost work for months or even years after the accident. Some common injuries include:
Obtaining a Settlement
As you attorney, it is my job to prove that your injuries were the result of a person’s or a company’s negligence. Using investigative tools and witness testimony, I am persistent in my pursuit for evidence on your behalf.
I have helped hundreds of clients to get much-needed compensation following an accident. As your legal advocate, I leave no stone unturned in the quest for a satisfactory outcome in your case. I will do everything I can to see that you win.
