- Medical malpractice

- Products liability

The Consequences of Negligence
The physical suffering you experience in the aftermath of a negligence-based accident could continue for years, but the pain doesn’t end there. You may suffer depression, anxiety, or PTSD, with emotional duress following you for years, even decades after the incident. Furthermore, you may be unable to work full-time after the incident, forcing you to get by without the wages you earned in the past. The financial burden of your accident may also include medical expenses and other unanticipated bills. There is no way for me to completely take away this suffering, but I can help you hold responsible parties accountable.
Types of Personal Injury Compensation
Personal injury compensation is generally divided into one of two categories: compensatory or punitive damages. Compensatory damages are designed to compensate victims for their physical or emotional suffering, plus the financial harm caused by job loss or other circumstances related to the incident. With punitive damages, the goal is to punish the negligent or reckless individual. Punitive damages are not as common as compensatory damages, but regularly occur in cases involving extreme recklessness or even malicious intent.
