When you have been injured in a vehicle wreck, you need an attorney who has experience fighting for just compensation. We are accustomed to handling personal injury cases arising from motor vehicle collisions, including car, truck, motorcycle, and bicycle accidents. We routinely assist clients in recovering compensation for damages including bodily injury, lost wages, pain and suffering, and scarring and disfigurement, in motor vehicle cases involving:
- Alcohol-related Collisions
- Weather-related Accidents
- Driver Injuries
- Passenger Injuries
- Hit-and-run Accidents
- Rear-end Collisions
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Trucking Accidents
- Pedestrian Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Texting while Driving
MEDICAL MALPRACTICE AND PROFESSIONAL NEGLIGENCE
Medical providers, including doctors, nurses, chiropractors, therapists, hospitals, clinics, and other health care providers are required to exercise reasonable care in accordance with the standards of care generally accepted for the profession involved. If a medical provider acts, or fails to act, in a manner that deviates from the standard of care, that provider may be held liable for injury or damage to a patient. A medical malpractice claim can be based on numerous negligent acts such as:
- Failure to diagnose a disease;
- Delay in diagnosing a disease;
- Surgical procedure errors;
- Failure to properly treat a medical condition;
- Errors committed during the prenatal and/or birth process.
We have represented clients whose doctors have failed to timely identify and treat diseases such as cancer; persons whose doctors have failed to properly treat an orthopedic condition; and persons who were not treated in a timely or appropriate manner in the emergency room.
Trucking accidents usually result in catastrophic injuries or death, and are vigorously defended. Since the trucking and transportation industry is heavily regulated, accidents involving trucks and semi-trailers are generally more complex than car accident cases, and require the development of a considerable amount of evidence related to the trucking company, driver, and truck trip involved in the collision in question. We have extensive experience investigating and pursuing legal actions on behalf of victims of trucking accidents.
NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE
Nursing homes are often under-staffed, and their employees may be poorly trained or inadequately supervised, which may lead to an injury or abuse to their patients.
If you or a loved one is suffering from bedsores, dehydration, malnutrition, abusive treatment, medication errors, or other injuries as a result of negligent treatment in a nursing home, long-term care facility, or assisted living facility, the attorneys at Vincent-Pope Law Firm can assist you in successfully pursuing litigation against those responsible.
