Goldberg & Osborne can assist with your claim against the person or entity that caused your injury. A skilled personal injury lawyer will assess the circumstances of your case and determine the sort of accident claim you must file. Some of the types of accidents that result in serious injury claims are outlined below.
Premises liability often refers to slip-and-fall cases. These laws state that a home or business owner can be held responsible when a victim is injured due to unreasonably dangerous conditions on their premises. The owner of the property, or the person who is exercising control over the property, may be at fault if they failed to take proper precautions to prevent injuries or acted in an otherwise irresponsible manner that could cause injuries to others. A skilled personal injury lawyer can assist with this type of case by investigating maintenance records and determining whether the owner or caretaker knew of a dangerous condition on the property.
The experienced attorneys at Goldberg & Osborne are well acquainted with laws pertaining to animal owner responsibility. The owner of the animal is at fault for your bite injury in almost all cases. The only exceptions are if you were trespassing at the time of the injury, or if you provoked the animal. There is also a much shorter period in which you may file this specific type of claim, compared to other personal injury claims. An experienced attorney can help make sure your case is filed promptly and avoid any legal pitfalls. A Phoenix personal injury attorney may also retain the services of medical experts that can testify regarding the extent of your injury and the likely suffering that you endured.
Some business owners operate their businesses under dangerous conditions. While many claims must be asserted through the Workers’ Compensation program, some cases may result in the employer being held directly responsible for sustained injuries. This may occur if the employer acted in a particularly egregious manner or if he or she is not the victim’s direct employer.
Product Liability Claims
Product liability cases are often complex because lawyers must investigate the design and manufacturing process to determine the extent of any defect or discover if the manufacturer acted in an irresponsible manner. If the product is proven to be defective, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and time off work.
Wrongful Death Claims
Wrongful death claims are a type of personal injury claim, but they are only triggered when a person or company’s fault resulted in death. The victim’s family can then assert a claim for the loss of a loved one and may be able to recover damages for loss of companionship, loss of comfort and support, and loss of consortium.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to the fault of another, you have the right to recover compensation for your injuries and suffering. Contact Goldberg & Osborne at 1-800-THE-EAGLE (1-800-843-3245).
