Cases We Handle
After an accident that causes injury, you might be wondering if your situation could be helped by hiring a personal injury lawyer. In Georgetown, you can rely on the Law Office of Todd W. Burris to help you with your case, as we cover all kinds of personal injury cases. Some of the different types of accidents that we can represent you for are:
Most car accidents are caused by negligence, which means they could have been avoided. Whether distracted driving, speeding, or driving under the influence was the cause of the accident, your lawyer will prove that negligence is what caused the crash and that the crash caused your injuries. Car accidents can cause minor and severe injuries, and those damages can make the costs stack up. Your medical bills, treatment costs, lost wages, and other costs that you incurred can likely be recovered in a legal claim.
Truck accidents, like car accidents, are usually the result of driver negligence. However, sometimes they can be the fault of a trucking company or manufacturer who neglected to properly inspect the truck, its parts, or perform any other task that they were responsible for. Truck accidents are especially dangerous because their size and weight are much larger than regular-sized vehicles. Injuries from these wrecks can be debilitating, which is why you need the help of a personal injury attorney to help you recover damages.
When a doctor or other medical provider who had a duty to provide you with adequate care breaks that duty and causes you harm, you could have a medical malpractice claim against them. Doctors are supposed to help you get better. If they misdiagnose you, operate on the wrong site, or give you improper medication doses, you could be at risk for an injury. You shouldn’t be responsible for those treatment costs when your doctor did not provide the care you deserved.
Older Kentuckians deserve to have great care, even when their families can no longer provide that care. Family members move their loved ones to nursing homes to provide them with the around-the-clock care that they need, but sometimes those facilities fail to meet those standards. Staff sometimes abuses and neglects residents, resulting in injury and death.
Any of the above accidents could lead to the wrongful death of a loved one. When someone acts with negligence and causes an accident that kills your loved one, you don’t have to sit idly by. You can file a wrongful death claim against them for their wrongful actions to get compensation for the damages and suffering that they have put your loved one and family through.
All of these situations can make you feel like you’re on your own to recover. When you hire a Georgetown personal injury lawyer from the Law Office of Todd W. Burris, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that we have your back and will support you every step of the way.
