Personal Injury

Fairfax Personal Injury Attorney

Personal injury lawyers serve those injured in a wide variety of incidents. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed due to someone else's carelessness, contact our law firm.

Motor Vehicle Accidents: Car accidents are extremely common, as are motorcycle accidents and accidents involving semi-trucks. You should be compensated for your medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and all other related expenses.

Premises Liability: When a property owner — be it a restaurant, store, motel or other — fails to repair a dangerous condition or warn visitors of the danger, and someone is hurt, they may be responsible. Slip-and-fall injuries are very common.

Product Liability: If a machine or other product is manufactured poorly and poses a risk of serious injury, victims deserve compensation for harm done. Products are sometimes mislabeled or poorly marketed, or contain inadequate warning of danger.

Construction Accidents: This is a dangerous occupation, witnessing a very high rate of injury from electrocution to fall injuries.

Medical Malpractice: Hospitals, nursing facilities, nurses, dentists and doctors must live up to certain standards. Carelessness and negligence result in unnecessary problems, including delayed diagnosis of an illness. The illness may no longer be treatable at that point.

Serious Personal Injury: Personal injury attorneys deal with what falls under Tort Law. Personal Injury involves civil law cases where you are trying to obtain compensation for a personal injury you sustained to your person. Personal Injury lawyers help you with any type of litigation involving physical injuries to your person

Wrongful Death: The sudden loss of a loved one is particularly difficult to handle when it is due to someone's carelessness. If you are dealing with grief and a new set of life circumstances, let us help you with the legal matters.
