Car Accidents

Many personal injury cases are triggered by auto accidents. If you or the other driver suffered serious injuries from an accident or if both parties are disputing who caused the accident, it’s time to consult with an attorney with an expertise in personal injury law. If you’re the plaintiff, it’s up to you to prove that the other person, through negligence, is responsible for your injuries resulting from the accident. Depending on your situation, the other driver may not even be the defendant in your lawsuit. If a defective vehicle or poor road infrastructure caused the accident, for example, your attorney may advise you to bring suit against the car manufacturer or a government agency. When you retain the services of The Auerbach Firm, you gain the counsel of a knowledgeable and compassionate attorney who is focused on helping you get the compensation you are entitled to.

Accidents on the Job

Work-related accidents are typically covered by workers compensation claims. However, any time you’ve suffered from an accident on the job, you should consult an attorney seasoned in workers compensation or personal injury cases. Based on hearing your recollection of the accident, we’ll be able to tell you if you have a case against additional parties such as, for example, the manufacturer of a faulty piece of machinery. If your employer doesn’t have workers compensation or worse, if your employer’s recklessness caused the accident, we may advise you to sue your employer in court for higher damages.

Workers Compensation

If you’ve been injured on the job or are suffering from work-related health problems, you must file a workers compensation claim as soon as possible to cover your medical bills. The process of filing a claim may seem straightforward. Every state has its own workers compensation laws aimed at protecting employees as well as employers. However, if your employer contests the claim, your situation can become complicated very quickly. Likewise, if you’re an employer and an employee attempts to finagle a personal injury into appearing as a work-related injury, for example, you should be prepared to fight the claim. Either way, you’d be wise to consult an attorney who is well-versed in your state’s workers comp law.

Elder Law

Baby boomers are approaching their golden years as the average U.S. life expectancy continues to approach 80. If you or a family member is part of the massive aging population, you’ll likely need the help of an attorney knowledgeable about elder law. In the practice of elder law and estate planning, we help clients prepare for disability and death, including wills, powers of attorney and medical care. We are especially skilled in handling elder care cases. If you suspect your relative is a victim of elder abuse, it’s highly recommended that you consult an attorney that specializes in elder abuse, personal injury or nursing home law.
