Krompecher Law Firm handles the following types of injury cases:
Car and Trucking Accidents
Everyone who drives a car or a truck is responsible for the safety of everyone else on the road. Accidents happen. People get injured. But, if a driver’s careless behavior causes injury or death of another, that driver must be held accountable. Many car accident lawsuits require an accident reconstruction expert (to determine speed of the vehicle at the moment of impact and the affect of the impact) and other experts to prove the case to a jury.
Personal injury lawsuits arise when people are injured by careless or intentional acts of others, or injured by products that are defective in some way. When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring someone else, they are liable for the injury, and may be required to pay the injured person for their damages.
A significant portion of the population earns a living in the building industry as an electrician, roofer, mason, carpenter, plumber, electrician, or general contractor. Injuries that occur on the job site are usually the fault of the land owner and the company responsible for maintaining the construction site. These injuries may include death, amputation, or significant permanent physical injuries. These injuries often impair or prevent the injured person from ever working again and medical bills can be extremely high.
Nursing Home abuse and Neglect and Assisted Living Facilities
Most of America has a loved one in a long term care facility. When a loved one is injured, the family wants answers. These types of lawsuits usually involve wandering without supervision, falls, bed sores/pressure ulcers, physical or sexual abuse, physical restraints, dehydration, malnutrition, choking, and other injuries that occur in nursing homes and assisted living facilities. Nursing homes and assisted living facilities spend a lot of money to protect their companies. But, the nursing home and assisted living facilities must be responsible for any injury caused by its staff, regardless of the circumstance. Hiring an attorney with a lot of experience in this area of law can have a drastic affect on the value of the case.
Medical malpractice lawsuits arise when patients are injured or killed as a result of the careless acts of a doctor, nurse or other healthcare provider. These commonly involve birth injuries, surgical errors, medication errors, misdiagnosis, failure to diagnose, failure to properly read X-rays, CT Scans, MRIs or other objective diagnostic test, and medical device failure. Hiring an attorney with years of experience defending hospitals and doctors is a big advantage when filing a lawsuit against any health care provider.
“Wrongful death” as a legal term is a death that has been caused by the fault of another person. For example, deaths caused by drunk driving, the manufacture of a defective or dangerous product, the construction of an unsound structure or building, or failing to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered under the law as “wrongful deaths”. In most states, a claim for wrongful death has a shorter statute of limitations than ordinary negligence cases. If your family member has died, call an attorney as soon as possible to make sure your legal right to a recovery will not be barred by the passage of time.
Products liability is an area of law that focuses on dangerous and defective products. This includes anything from a medication to a power tool to a defective car part or design. Many products are sold to consumers without federal safety approval and many without any tests performed to ensure the safety of the consumer. The manufacturers, distributor and retails may be liable for injuries caused by their products.
