Wrongful Death


wrongful-death-attorneyIf a person’s carelessness caused the death, the family of the person killed can make sure that the person who caused the death is held accountable for his or her actions.

These wrongful death cases can be complicated because the family has to prove that the other driver was careless and that the carelessness caused the crash. The family also has to show the lost wages that the victim would have earned and the amount that the victim would have spent in supporting his or her family. Our firm has represented dozens of families in these emotional situations in cases all over the US. We would love to help your family if you are in this situation.

Motorcycle Accident


bicycle-accident-attorneyMore frequently, however, a motorcycle accident occurs because the driver of one of the vehicles was not being careful. In some states, there is a requirement that a person suffer a permanent injury before they can seek damages from the person who caused their injuries. (A permanent injury is one that will remain throughout the injured person’s life). In the states that do not have a permanent injury requirement, juries usually do not award significant damages unless there has been a significant injury.

In most accidents people do not suffer serious injuries; but, in some collisions, the force transferred from the striking vehicle to the vehicle that is hit is so great that the people inside suffer permanent injuries. These injuries can cause limitations and disabilities that the victims will have forever. Examples of these injuries are amputation injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries.

For many years we have represented the families of people who have been seriously injured in motorcycle accidents. I have represented families in California, Georgia, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. I would welcome the opportunity of meeting with you, at a place most convenient to you, to discuss your legal rights.
