Why Should I File A Personal Injury Lawsuit?

The answer is that if you or a loved one have been injured as the result of another party’s negligence, it is not only ethical, but completely reasonable to seek financial compensation for your losses.

When construction companies cut corners to try and save money and meet work deadlines, they sacrifice the safety of their employees. Scaffolding accidents, slips, trips, & falls, and ladder accidents are just a few examples of accidents that may cause severe injury.
Workers compensation almost never fully compensates for lost wages. For workers who are injured so severely that returning to work is not an option, the loss of income can be devastating.

Many patients don’t know who to turn to when the medical professional they trusted to take care of them fails to do so. Doctor error, negligence, misdiagnosis, prescription error, and surgical errors are just a few examples of the causes of medical malpractice. These errors can turn a minor illness or injury into a much more serious problem.
