mvaNegligent, careless and reckless drivers do not discriminate amongst their victims. Drivers, passengers, pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicyclists unknowingly and unwillingly are placed at risk every time they enter a car, a bus, a taxi, a van, mass transit vehicles, such as school buses, trains, subways, private transit, such as Para-Transit, limousine or, just simply walking across a street.

Accident victims and their families are faced with many complex and challenging issues. The Law, while designed to afford victims and their families’ rights and remedies, is unfortunately often confusing, leaving victims and their families lost and in search of answers. Insurance policies are complex and understanding their terms and provisions require legal expertise. The decisions based upon an individual’s understanding at the time when policies are purchased are often regretted when unfortunate circumstance requires the necessity of using those insurance coverages after an accident occurs.

Many issues arise, such as how are medical expenses paid, who will pay the damage or total loss of your vehicle, who will reimburse your rental expenses and deductible if incurred and do you have a tort threshold which must be overcome in order to recover compensation for physical and mental injury caused by the carelessness and recklessness of another. Insurance companies employ representatives or hire lawyers to defend the negligent and careless parties and attempt to limit your right to compensation.

Premises Liability

slipAn accident can occur at any time at any place. When an incident occurs upon a premise, such as a home, a store, a sidewalk, a parking lot, a restaurant or pub, public facility, hotel, resort, etc., the person or entity responsible for the premises may be legally liable for the injuries and financial losses incurred by the person injured upon the premises.

Assessing the victims’ rights in a premises liability case requires legal expertise. In many cases, specific requirements pertaining to notification to potential responsible parties must be met to ensure a victim’s right to present his/her claim and the failure to do so could serve as a complete bar to potential recovery. Investigation and expert analysis are often necessary to prove the negligence and carelessness of those responsible for the property and can be extremely costly. Obtaining evidence which may only remain in existence for a short period of time is often critical for the successful outcome of the case.
