If you have been injured due to the carelessness, recklessness, negligence or intentional misconduct of another, you are entitled to be compensated for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other legal damages. Obtaining that compensation, however, may require the filing of a lawsuit and being able to prove to a jury that the other party is responsible for your injuries and all of the compensation you are requesting. The defendants and their insurance companies will fight back hard, claiming that you are responsible for the accident, that you were not really seriously injured, or that your injuries were caused by some other incident in the past.
The Law Offices of Andrew R. Jacobs has a proven record of achieving results for people who have been seriously injured. Attorney Andrew Jacobs has the knowledge, skills, experience, and resources to stand up to the defendants and their insurance companies and hold them accountable for their negligent or wrongful conduct. We can help you if you have been injured in any of the following types of incidents:
Car Accidents – Did an automobile driver cause an accident by driving negligently or recklessly? Was the driver distracted, such as by texting while driving, using a cell phone or simply not paying attention? Did a design defect or mechanical failure in one of the vehicles cause or contribute to the accident?
Truck Accidents – Was the truck driver speeding or driving carelessly or aggressively? Were there signs that the driver was overly fatigued or using artificial stimulants? What do company records reveal about the driver’s schedule and the maintenance routines and safety inspections for the semi?
Motorcycle Accidents – Did a car or truck collide with a motorcycle or force the rider off the road because the driver was inattentive, reckless or aggressive in his or her driving?
Railroad Accidents – Was the train being operated at an excessive speed? Did the operator sound a warning? Were there adequate sight distances for drivers at the crossing? Did the crossing contain adequate safety devices in good working order?
Industrial Accidents – Was equipment such as a forklift or crane set up improperly or operated by untrained personnel or without proper safety equipment? Were toxic chemicals or flammable materials improperly stored or mishandled?
Workplace Accidents – Did the employer fail to maintain a safe work site in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations? Was a third party responsible, such as an owner of the premises or a general contractor or a vehicle driver or the manufacturer of a defective product?
Product Liability – Did the manufacturer, distributor or retailer allow a product with a design defect or manufacturing defect to get into the hands of a consumer who was injured by the product? Did the product and packaging fail to include adequate warnings or instructions for the product’s safe use? Was the product fit, suitable, and safe for it’s intended purpose?
Premises Liability – Was a dangerous or unsafe condition allowed to exist for an unreasonable amount of time before being repaired or corrected or eliminated? Was any warning posted about the condition?
Brain Injury – Did a head injury cause traumatic brain injury (TBI), creating the need for intense rehabilitation and services such as occupational therapy, speech therapy, or psychological counseling?
