In situations of injury or death in assisted-living facilities, negligence is often caused by understaffed, under trained, or underpaid employees. This can lead to malnourishment, weight loss, bed sores, and even death of loved ones. If you suspect a loved one is suffering neglect or abuse in the hands of a nursing facility, or has passed away due to negligence in any situation, we are the personal injury attorney that can help.

Dog Attacks & Bite Injuries

The CDC estimates that more than four and a half million people are victims of dog bites every year, which makes the chances you will be bitten about one in sixty-nine, and treatment can be costly.

If you or a loved one has suffered a canine bite or attack, you are entitled to compensation. Many insurance companies only pay a percentage of the medical costs, leaving the victims of the attack to pay the large remaining sum of fees. That means that in addition to suffering any long-term distress, strained relationships, and other residual emotional effects, you may also have a lingering financial burden.

We are more than just personal-injury lawyers: we are here as a support for you during times of trouble, and we understand and can guide you through the steps you should take to recover and receive the compensation you deserve, no matter the cause of your injury.
