Asserting The Rights Of Injury Victims
Personal injury and wrongful death claims arise when someone is hurt or killed due to the negligence of another person or entity. Nothing can fully replace what someone has lost, particularly when they have lost a cherished family member, but these lawsuits provide a way to obtain financial compensation for damages such as medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost earnings and more for physical, mental and fatal injuries. If you or a loved one has suffered harm while working in or visiting the United States, you can rely on the international attorneys of Urban Thier & Federer, P.A., to assert your rights in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
Our attorneys are equipped to overcome the hurdles that stand in the way of you enforcing and protecting your legal right to financial compensation for the damages you have suffered. Before you give in to a self-serving settlement offer from the insurance company, contact us to find out how we can help make things right for you and your family.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Motor vehicles continue to be the standard means of transportation in much of America and motor vehicle accidents and pedestrian accidents are responsible for many catastrophic injuries and deaths each year. Whether you were injured in a rental car while on a business trip or vacation, lost a loved one in a fatal truck accident or were struck in a motorcycle accident, we can help you identify and assert your rights. We can assist you in securing the payment of medical and other expenses from the various insurance companies and policies that may be implicated in your particular case, including:
- The at-fault driver’s automobile and liability insurance
- Your own medical insurance
- Uninsured or underinsured motorist coverage
- Other potential sources of recovery.
Laws vary state by state but one thing is generally true anywhere in the United States: property owners are responsible for maintaining safe premises and providing a clear warning when dangers exist. We can help you pursue a premises liability claim if you or a loved one has suffered an injury as a result of:
- Negligent security: assault, sexual assault, armed robbery, etc.
- Slip-and-fall: wet floors, snow and ice, buckling sidewalks, unlevel stairs, etc.
- Animal attack: including dog bites
- Swimming accidents: negligent protection and supervision
- Dangerous conditions: inadequate maintenance, attractive nuisances, water leaks, floods, dangerous gases
Losing a loved one in a fatal accident at any time during your life is always difficult, but losing them while you are far away from home is even more so. When that person has passed due to the negligence of another person, then you need to speak with a wrongful death attorney who has the knowledge and experience to handle these cases. These legal actions assist in paying for burial expenses, as well as ensuring that the decedents family is provided for in their absence. Our attorneys are experienced with litigation where the injury took place in a foreign jurisdiction, so if you have suffered a loss abroad or at home, our attorneys can help you.
The Clock Is Ticking
It is important for you to contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after suffering an injury. Every negligence claim is governed by a statute of limitations or time limit within which you must file a lawsuit. The specific legal guidelines where you live, the type of injury incurred, and the amount of time passed since you discovered the injury are all factors in determining whether you can proceed with a lawsuit. Once the statute of limitations passes, you may be forever barred from filing a lawsuit to enforce your legal rights and to recover damages for your injuries or the death of another.
