Personal Injury Law
Personal injury lawsuits arise when a person is injured due to the actions or negligence of someone else. These types of cases may be resolved through a settlement or a formal lawsuit. In either case, you require legal representation to ensure you are receiving everything you are entitled to and are represented and protected throughout the process.
Your main concern after a motor vehicle accident is recovering from any injuries you’ve sustained. We will review the known facts about the accident and investigate thoroughly to ensure that your case is resolved to your satisfaction through settlement or trial.
It is required of a medical professional, whether a doctor, nurse, psychiatrist, or other medical representative, to provide care that is adequate and responsible. The failure to do so is medical malpractice. Your doctor is held responsible for testing and diagnosing an illness or condition so that an appropriate treatment regimen can begin. Each state and facility maintains a standard of care that must be met by its medical professionals. If you suffer from a complication that has arisen due to the failure of a doctor, facility, or other medical professional to provide appropriate diagnosis, treatment, or care, Call Echemendia Law Firm Toll Free.
Wrongful death is a lawsuit brought by the family or estate of someone whose death was caused by intentional or negligent behavior. The lawsuit is brought forth to provide the family members of the deceased some financial security and to cover medical and funeral expenses as they recover from their loss.
Often, we entrust nursing homes with the care of our elderly family members. If they sustain injuries or pass away due to neglect or abuse on the part of the nursing home, the nursing home must be held accountable. Whenever a patient’s rights have been violated in a nursing home, a case can be made for nursing home neglect.
Slip and Fall
As the name suggests, “slip and fall” personal injury lawsuits are those in which an injury is the result of a slip and fall related to conditions on someone else’s property. This is often difficult to prove because it must be established that the property-owner knew about the hazard and had adequate time to repair or remove it. Rest assured that we will work to ensure that you receive compensation for your injuries.
Accidents involving the operation of commercial vehicles are serious and often deadly. We understand the federal and state regulations in regards to operation of large trucks. Driver fatigue and violation of service regulations are usual causes of these accidents. We are aware of the length of time the vehicle maintenance records are to be kept and we will acquire them before they can be destroyed so they can be used as evidence of negligence on the part of the trucking company.
Motorcycle accidents are more likely to involve injuries and fatalities than cars. Echemendia Law Firm has experience in representing victims of motor vehicle accidents. Contact us for a free consultation today.
