    Practice Areas Our Personal Injury Lawyers Cover in Jasper

    Our personal injury lawyers have spent years providing critical legal services to victims in Jasper. Our team covers various practice areas, each with unique challenges and considerations. We understand what evidence is needed in each type of case and can help you gather it. The following are the types of claims we can help you file in Jasper:

    Car Accidents

    Car accidents are among the most common sources of personal injury claims in Jasper. Victims might suffer from a range of injuries, from minor bruises to life-altering conditions.

    Regardless, our team can assist you by preparing your insurance filing, negotiating settlements, and, if necessary, filing a lawsuit to recover additional damages. These damages typically include medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

    Motorcycle Accidents

    In Jasper, our team focuses on overcoming biases against motorcyclists and showing the other party’s negligence. We know that riders can be treated unfairly when recovering compensation, which is why you should work with our attorneys so that negative attitudes about motorcycles are not used against you.

    These claims often involve serious injuries, so you might need significant compensation for medical treatments, rehabilitation, lost income, and pain and suffering. We will help reconstruct the accident to show the court how the other driver’s negligence caused your injuries.

    Truck Accidents

    Truck accident claims typically involve collisions between commercial trucks and smaller vehicles, pedestrians, or cyclists. Because of the size and weight disparity between commercial trucks and passenger vehicles, these accidents often result in severe injuries or fatalities.

    In most cases, we will sue both the truck driver and the company they work for. We can identify the specific regulatory standards they violated, like driving too many hours, failing maintenance checks, and violating load restrictions.

    Additionally, our lawyers often file claims against other parties besides the driver and company. Sometimes, we will name cargo loaders, maintenance staff, and manufacturers in your claim.

    Medical Malpractices

    Medical malpractice occurs when healthcare professionals deviate from the standards of their profession, harming their patients. In Jasper, pursuing a medical malpractice claim typically requires showing that your healthcare provider failed to provide the standard of care that another healthcare professional with similar training and experience would have given. This often involves complex medical evidence and expert testimony to establish negligence, which our attorneys can arrange in your case.

    Construction Accidents

    Construction sites are dangerous places, with accidents frequently causing severe injuries. Our lawyers can help you untangle the complex web of liability that is typical in these cases. Depending on how your accident happened, we might file a claim against the construction company, a subcontractor, equipment manufacturers, the property owner, or all of the above.

    Our team has an in-depth understanding of workplace safety regulations, OSHA standards, and state labor laws. We can use this knowledge to help you secure damages that reflect the severity of your injuries and the potential long-term impacts on your quality of life and earning capacity.

    Birth Injuries

    Birth injuries can happen at any point during the pregnancy, labor, delivery, or following the birth. These claims are particularly heart-wrenching as they involve harm to the most vulnerable newborns and their mothers. Common birth injuries include cerebral palsy, brachial plexus injuries, and fractures.

    Our firm understands obstetric and newborn care standards and how to prove where they were deviated from. This usually involves showing that your healthcare providers failed to anticipate certain birth complications or failed to respond appropriately to fetal distress. By filing a claim, you can secure compensation for your child’s lifelong needs, including damages for ongoing rehabilitation and special education.

    Brain Injuries

    Brain injuries are among the most catastrophic injuries one can sustain, significantly impacting the victim’s life and their family. Brain injury claims are difficult to prove but can happen in car accidents, falls, sports injuries, and violent assaults. No matter the cause of your brain injuries, we will help you hold the other party liable.

    We usually focus on showing the full impact of your injury on your quality of life, employment, and personal relationships. Our attorneys will typically need to obtain testimony from medical experts and other specialists to quantify the damages you have suffered, including current and future needs.

    Burn Injuries

    Burn injuries are caused in numerous ways, including fires, chemical exposures, electrical accidents, and hot liquids or surfaces. If you have sustained burn injuries, you will likely require extensive medical treatment, including surgeries and skin grafts. Fortunately, we can help prove the extent of your burns so you are fully compensated for any scarring, disfigurement, or psychological trauma you now live with.

    We can help file a claim against all responsible parties, including employers who fail to maintain a safe workplace and manufacturers of defective products. Our lawyers will not only establish their negligence but also work with experts who can articulate the profound physical and emotional impact of your burn injuries in court.

    Nursing Home Abuse

    Many elderly residents and their families suffer crushing losses from nursing home abuse. Our team treats these cases with the care and attention they deserve. We can file a claim against the home itself, its staff, or other third parties.

    These claims can be for physical abuse, neglect, emotional abuse, and financial exploitation. Whatever your case, our team will file a claim against any party that played a role in your injuries. We will also obtain important medical records, witness statements, and other pieces of evidence to show the extent of the abuse and what the victim should be paid.
