Frequently asked questions

Auto accidents

If you were involved in an accident and are still on-scene, you should do the following:

  • Move to a safe location
  • Call 911 to report the accident
  • Take photos of the accident scene
  • Gather contact and insurance information from the other driver
  • Get medical attention as soon as possible

To determine if you can file a personal injury claim, we must establish that the other driver was at fault, that their negligence caused the accident and your injuries, and that the accident resulted in financial losses for you.

Product Liability

You should get medical attention and notify your healthcare provider that you consumed a recalled product, what it was, and why it was recalled.

A foodborne illness is the technical term for sickness caused by bad or contaminated food. Foodborne illnesses are generally caused by contamination from bacteria, parasites, viruses, or chemicals. These illnesses generally cause symptoms, such as:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Dehydration
  • Abdominal pain

Dog Bites

Generally, it is best that you do not discuss your dog bite injuries with the dog owner, or anyone other than your attorney. You should never agree to anything, or sign anything, without your attorney.

Most states require that dog bites be reported, where the dog may be listed as a “dangerous” or “potentially dangerous” dog. The owner will be informed of any violations or applicable citations. In cases where the dog is continually aggressive, ill, or viewed as a threat, it may be euthanized.

Slip and Fall

If you fell on a broken piece of sidewalk that is the responsibility of the city, then you may have grounds to sue them for your injuries and related expenses. In order to do so, you must establish that the city failed to properly maintain the sidewalk.

This phrase is used in cases where a property owner should have known about a hazard because it existed for a long period of time, and it can be established that any “reasonably careful person” in a similar situation would have discovered the hazard.
