Accident and Injury Claims

Accident and Injury Claims

Dealing with an injury can be very stressful. It can affect your family and your job and it can have a tremendous impact on your quality of life. When you are injured in a car, truck, motorcycle or other motor vehicle accident, it can be hard to know what to do next. The attorneys at Burke Harvey are experienced in working with injured victims and their families and have helped many people through the process of submitting the necessary insurance claims and if necessary filing a lawsuit against the person or persons who caused their accident and injury.

VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

If you are injured in a car, truck, motorcycle or motor vehicle accident, it’s important that you act quickly to preserve your rights. Sometimes in the aftermath of serious accidents important evidence is destroyed or rendered worthless. In addition, witnesses will disappear or have trouble remembering facts accurately.

Insurance companies certainly do not have your best interests in mind when they make low offers to settle claims at a time when you are injured and vulnerable. In many cases, insurance companies will rush to settle claims before an accident victim even knows the full extent of his or her injuries. A lawyer who is knowledgeable about claims and lawsuits involving these kinds of injuries can make all the difference in dealing with insurance companies. This experience is indispensable to the process of obtaining the compensation you deserve.

The team at Burke Harvey have worked with countless injury victims. We have been successful in dealing with insurance companies and obtaining compensation for our clients. Don’t try to navigate this process alone. The insurance companies have attorneys working for them and so should you. If you have been injured in a car, truck, motorcycle or other motor vehicle accident, call the experienced attorneys at Burke Harvey today.

MEDICAL, DENTAL AND PHARMACY MALPRACTICE CLAIMS

Everyone trusts their doctor, dentist or pharmacist to provide them with the best care possible. Unfortunately, doctors, dentists, pharmacists, nurses and hospitals sometimes make mistakes that result in serious injuries to their patients, or even death.

Examples of medical malpractice include failure to timely or correctly diagnose a health problem or condition, negligently performing surgical, medical or dental procedures, prescribing the wrong or too much medication or by failing to properly monitor the health of patients. Pharmacists sometimes fill prescriptions with the wrong dosage of medication or even with a medication that was not prescribed.

If you feel that you, a family member or a friend has suffered injury as a result of medical, dental or pharmaceutical malpractice, it is important to find a lawyer with knowledge and experience in such matters to advise you. Medical malpractice cases often involve complex questions of medicine. So too, the law governing medical, dental and pharmaceutical malpractice can be challenging.

WORK PLACE ACCIDENTS & INJURIES

Under the law, we all have a duty to take reasonable care not to cause foreseeable harm to other people. This includes the responsibility of employers or related companies, such as manufacturers or third-party vendors, to ensure a safe environment for workers.

If you are injured on the job, be sure to find out your rights. In addition to Worker’s Compensation benefits, you may also be entitled to make an additional claim if negligence is found to be a cause of your accident. Our experienced attorneys can help you determine if you have a case and help you negotiate a settlement.

PRODUCTS & PREMISES LIABILITY

Products liability refers to the liability of any of the parties associated with the manufacture of a product. This could include the manufacturer of parts, an assembling manufacturer, the wholesaler and/or the retail store owner. Products containing inherent defects are the subjects of products liability suits. While products are generally thought of as tangible personal property, products liability could also include intangibles, pets, real estate or even writings.

Premises liability refers to the liability in a personal injury case where the injury was caused by an unsafe condition of a property.

Whether a product or premises liability, these types of cases are based on negligence. If you have been injured from a product or due to an unsafe condition on someone’s property, call the team at Burke Harvey to evaluate your case.

WRONGFUL DEATH

A lawsuit may be filed for wrongful death when a person dies or is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another. A person can be found liable for a wrongful death even if they have not been convicted of a crime associated with that death in a court of law. This type of lawsuit may only be brought by a personal representative of the person’s estate.

Examples of situations that may result in a wrongful death lawsuit include medical malpractice, automobile or airplane accident, occupational exposure to hazardous conditions or substances or criminal behavior.
