Defective Products/Products Liability
When a company produces and sells a product, it has a duty to make sure that it will not injure consumers or any foreseeable users of the product. Products sold without government approval or those that malfunction when used can cause burns, blindness, and other disabilities. The products themselves are wide-ranging, from clothing to toys, household appliances to pharmaceuticals. In such cases, individuals may be able to recover for lost wages, medical expenses, and pain and suffering.
Dog and other pets present a risk for visitors to a property. Even if there is a posted “Beware of Dog” warning sign, the animal owner is still liable for any injury caused by their pet.
Medical Malpractice/Medical Negligence
Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider, such as a doctor or physician, fails to provide proper treatment through carelessness, disregard for established rules, or a sheer lack of skill or expertise. Errors in medical treatment, instruments left in patients during surgery, and misdiagnoses are common instances of medical malpractice, which can cause long-term injury and death.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Driving under the influence, texting while driving, speeding, and aggressive driving all contribute to motor vehicle accidents involving automobiles, tractor-trailers and other large trucks, bicycles, motorcycles, and pedestrians. When reckless or negligent driving contributes to an accident, such behavior can result in serious injury or death.
Nursing Home Negligence/Elder Neglect
Despite the sense of security a family feels by placing a loved one into the daily care of a nursing home, physical and mental abuse of older Americans is on the rise. The elderly are at the mercy of healthcare providers and improperly screened individuals who may manipulate, shove, or withhold treatment, causing physical and psychological abuse.
Premises Liability/Slip and Fall
Landowners must keep their property reasonably safe for others. The negligence of a property owner or maintenance company can cause someone to slip and fall, or be injured by a defective piece of equipment. Slip and fall accidents are the most frequent types of premises liability cases and can result in serious injury or death. Such conditions include loose carpeting, tripping hazards, and unmarked wet floors.
Worker’s Compensation/Workplace Injuries
Worker’s Compensation laws assist employees to recover medical treatment, replacement wages and benefits for work-related accidents, injuries or illnesses. It is important for one who has suffered a work-related injury or illness to understand the complicated Worker’s Compensation system in order to recover the money, treatment and benefits he or she may deserve. At Maya Murphy, P.C., we guide you through the Worker’s Compensation system to get you the recovery you deserve. Our goal is to help you return to your normal daily activities and handle any individual circumstances that arise.
If a loved one dies as a direct result of a company, entity, or individual’s negligence, recklessness, or misconduct, you have the right to file a wrongful death claim. In such an event, the decedent’s family may seek compensation for a number of items, including but not limited to funeral costs, lost income and benefits, and the loss of companionship.
