We understand that personal injury can affect every facet of your life; that’s why we take a personal approach in handling your claim, working hard to resolve it in a timely manner.
SLIP AND FALL
Slip and fall injury claims are often among the trickiest of personal injury claims. Liability is almost always a huge issue, and an attorney with experience in such cases is usually necessary to bring the claim to a successful conclusion.
There are three main types of slip and fall accidents:
- Slip-and-fall accidents These accidents occur when your footing slips and you fall to the ground. A good example of this would be an accident in a grocery store caused by a wet floor.
- Trip-and-fall accidents These accidents occur when there is an object in your path and it causes you to fall.
- Step-and-fall accidents These accidents occur when there is a hole in the walking path.
In order to recover a personal injury statement in most slip and fall cases, you must prove: that a dangerous condition existed, the property owner knew or should have known about the condition, and the property owner did nothing to remedy the dangerous condition.
It is vital to obtain experienced legal guidance from a personal injury attorney in order to prove and recover a personal injury settlement.
Property owners have certain obligations under local, state and federal laws. While these laws do vary, the basic underlying fact is property owners have an obligation to keep their land and the buildings safe for authorized visitors and those with business there.
Premises liability cases often involve slip and fall injuries, but not always. Improper security, poor lighting, and even criminal activity may come into play. The Law Offices of H. Christopher Coburn have handled a wide array of such cases and will investigate your injury to determine its cause then pursue compensation on your behalf.
BUS AND TRAIN ACCIDENTS
Were you injured in a collision with a city bus or commuter train? Or injured as a public transit passenger? Governmental agencies are not immune to the laws of negligence. You are entitled to sue for damages, including medical care, lost income, and pain and suffering.
These common carrier accidents are not always clear as to liability. Jurisdictional and public entity liability issues often make the process more difficult for the injury claimant. At the Law Offices of H. Christopher Coburn, we will make sure your claim is filed in the correct and timely manner to preserve your rights and maximize your recovery of damages.
When treated under the care of a doctor, most people trust in their prognosis and treatment. But sometimes, the treatment and care of a doctor can be incorrect, resulting in a serious mistake when treating your medical condition. Or, when treatment is performed, the doctor can act in a careless or negligent manner with your health. In these cases, injured people will file a personal injury claim against their doctor in what’s known as a medical malpractice suit.
Medical Malpractice cases are among the most difficult cases in the practice of law. Expert testimony is almost always necessary and causation is almost always an issue. Defendants in Medical Malpractice cases generally have the right to accept or reject any settlement regardless of the position of their insurance carrier, and for obvious reasons they take such cases very personally. Experience in the area of Medical Malpractice is invaluable in properly handling such claims.
Legal malpractice is when an attorney makes a significant error that comprises a client’s ability to achieve a just result. In these instances, when an attorney breaches his or her duty, he or she must be held to account. Legal Malpractice cases are often quite difficult due to their general nature of proving “a case within a case.” Not only does your case have to be made against the defendant attorney; in order to prove damages, you usually need to prove the merits of the underlying case. An experienced malpractice attorney will help you see the issues involved in successfully evaluating and prosecuting such a case.
