Personal Injury cases are legal disputes that arise when one person suffers harm from an accident or injury, and someone else might be legally responsible for that harm. A personal injury case can become formalized through civil court proceedings that seek to find others legally at fault through a court judgment or, as is much more common, such disputes may be resolved through informal settlement before any lawsuit is filed.
Probate is the formal legal process that gives recognition to a will and appoints the executor or personal representative who will administer the estate and distribute assets to the intended beneficiaries.
Family Law encompasses a broad range of legal topics involving marriage and children. Common family law subjects include divorce or annulment, child custody and visitation rights, child support payments, and spousal support/alimony. Family law specifically deals with children in regards to adoption, guardianship, and state child protection, and domestic violence and restraining orders for adults.
Medical Malpractice refers to professional negligence by a heath care professional or provider in which treatment provided was substandard and caused harm, injury, or death to a patient. In the majority of cases, the medical malpractice or negligence involved a medical error, possibly in diagnosis, medication dosage, health management, treatment and/or aftercare. The error may have been because nothing was done (an act of omission), or a negligent act.
If you suffer an on-the-job injury or illness, you may be entitled to worker's compensation. Employees who are covered can receive partial pay for the time they are out of work, compensation for their medical bills, and more.
