Claimed Lawyer ProfileQ&AGoldSocial MediaResponsive Law

I have been practicing in the field of personal injury law for more than 40 years. I enjoy the close relationships, which I build with my clients throughout the course of a case. I do my best to put my clients at ease and trust that they feel safe and secure in the environment we have created in our firm. I represent people who suffer personal injuries arising from all types of motor vehicle accidents, such as car, bus, truck, and commercial vehicles. Also, injuries from motor vehicle accidents arising from uninsured and under-insured motor vehicles. I also prosecute slip and fall cases against commercial property owners, supermarkets and big box stores. I also represent people who have been injured by dog bites. In addition, I represent people injured in the course of their employment. These are commonly referred to as workers comp cases. In addition, I defend people charged with any type of motor Cecile violations (tickets), DWI, possession of CDS and other maters handling in our state's municipal courts.

All fees in workers comp are subject to approval by a judge of compensation. In both personal injury and workers comp, you pay no fee, unless we recover for you. In other matters such as DWI, or when a client receives motor vehicle summonses, we may offer a flat fee or an hourly rate.

Legal Answers
47 Questions Answered
Q. What statue is correct to file when a client at work bites you?
A: You probably have a workers comp claim. You are entitled to certain benefits. Speak with a WC attorney.

I'm not sure a prosecutor would be interested pursuing a criminal case, and with a special needs individual, you're not going to get a lot of sympathy going after them on your own. Just being honest.
Q. I broke my hand at a daycare 2 years ago it is not functioning well since can I still sew the daycare
A: The urgent issue is whether the time to file a lawsuit has expired. You don't state the exact date of your accident. I would run, not walk to a personal injury or workers comp layer today.
Q. We are a restaurant and one of a staff caused dropped hot oil on the customer's leg. He sent us a cost break down of how
A: There is no set rule for restaurants in the situation you describe. It sounds like you made a settlement with this customer in terms of a "plan discount". While it is honorable that you are taking care of the situation, there is nothing that you have described which gets you to a formal conclusion of this settlement. Lawful settlements are concluded by the victim signing a release for an agreed sum. You should see a lawyer who can help you tie up this settlement so that the person doesn't keep on coming back for more.
