Comprehensive Representation In Hamburg Personal Injury Litigation
Our skilled personal injury attorneys can help you seek compensation in any of the following areas of personal injury law:
Motor vehicle accidents: These can occur when a driver does not pay sufficient attention while behind the wheel or drives in a way that they know to be dangerous. The driver’s lack of concern for the safety of others results in an injurious auto accident. As soon as both parties have sought medical attention, the individual whose car was hit can file a claim based on negligence.
Premises liability: This area of law is concerned with injuries that occur due to dangerous conditions on private property. Slip-and-fall accidents are covered by premises liability law, which assigns legal responsibility to the individual or organization in charge of the land or building on which someone is injured. These types of injuries can occur due to unsatisfactory and unsafe conditions, especially when there is inadequate signage to advertise the risk of injury.
Animal attacks: These include dog bites and attacks by domesticated animals with human owners. Animal attacks are considered part of premises liability law, but they can serve as the grounds for a lawsuit against the animal’s owner regardless of whether the bite victim was on public or private property.
Catastrophic injuries: Some of the most devastating and financially costly injuries are those that impact the spinal cord or the brain. Spinal cord injuries can result in partial or total paralysis, which impacts the victim’s entire personal and professional life. Traumatic brain injuries can result in long-term problems with daily functioning, changes in mental and emotional health and more.
