About Personal Injury Law

The information you need to file an injury lawsuit

Personal injury law allows victims to seek monetary recovery when another party’s negligence, carelessness, recklessness, or intentional acts cause physical, emotional and psychological injury, as well as economic loss and property damage.

Serious personal injuries can have devastating effects on the injured victims and their families.  In a personal injury lawsuit, we seek to recover monetary damages against the negligent party for physical pain and suffering, emotional and psychological damage, physical disfigurement, loss of quality of life, disability, loss of wages and income, medical and hospital bills, rehabilitation care, medications, medical equipment, nurses, aides, household help and homecare, loss of parent or spousal companionship, services and guidance.

If you or a loved one have suffered serious injuries from an accident, medical malpractice, an unsafe drug or product, or nursing home neglect or abuse, call us at 1-800-LAW-3333 today! It is imperative to act quickly to preserve vital evidence, secure witnesses, obtain photos and/or video tape and timely file claims and commence the appropriate lawsuit to protect your legal rights.  (There are specific time limits and deadlines within which personal injury claims and lawsuits MUST BE FILED.)

Wrongful death claims

The most unfortunate type of personal injury case involves the death of a loved one.  Nobody should have to suffer through a death that could have been prevented. We understand the sensitivity of a wrongful death lawsuit and assist you in your time of need.

State statutes outline how the courts address wrongful death lawsuits.  The family of the deceased, including a husband or wife, children, parents, or nearest kin, may pursue a legal action for wrongful death.  If the appropriate person is a child, then an adult guardian will be required to act on his/her behalf.

Money damages can never replace a lost loved one, but such a loss often causes financial difficulties and challenges.  A wrongful death lawsuit seeks compensation not only for the deceased’s pain and suffering and the suffering of their family, but also for loss of financial support, loss of companionship, loss of a parent’s support, services and guidance, loss of a spouse’s support, companionship, care and services, medical, hospital, nursing, rehab, homecare and long-term facility bills, and funeral and burial expenses.

There are specific and strict limitations of the time within which a wrongful death claim and lawsuit must be filed.  Call us at 1-800-LAW-3333, speak to Attorney Jack Yankowitz and learn how we can protect your legal rights and help you obtain the justice and financial compensation you deserve.
