Personal Injury: types of cases

There are many types of personal injury suits. It is a good idea for victims to consider the basic elements of each kind of personal injury case in order to decide whether their situation warrants seeking consultation from experienced and resourceful legal representation.

Auto and Truck Collisions

Fellerman & Ciarimboli has successfully represented thousands of people injured in automobile and truck collisions. This experience has given us the legal expertise and financial resources to handle our clients’ cases in the most effective manner possible.

At Fellerman & Ciarimboli we are dedicated to making sure we do everything possible to achieve the maximum results in each client’s cases.

Wrongful Death

When a death is caused by the misconduct of another person or company it is called wrongful death. The misconduct can range from an act of momentary negligence or carelessness to an intentional or reckless act. A wrongful death lawsuit holds that the decedent was killed as a result of negligence or other liability and that the surviving or beneficiaries are entitled to monetary damages as a result of the defendant’s conduct.

Falls Due to Hazardous Conditions

Falls due to hazardous conditions occur when someone falls as a result of a hazardous or unsafe condition on the property of another and is hurt as a result. Injuries can be very serious and can occur in numerous ways. A common example would be falling as a result of a property owner fails to remove ice or snow. The scenarios are limitless and the injuries can be devastating. Speaking to the experienced team of lawyers at Fellerman & Ciarimboli can help to clarify whether you have a case or not.

Medical Malpractice

Preventable medical errors kill over one hundred thousand innocent American citizens every year. Actually, this figure may be significantly higher, as indicated by a 2009 study by the Hearst media corporation, which attributed a significantly higher number to these tragic scenarios:

“Preventable medical mistakes and infections are responsible for about 200,000 deaths in the U.S. each year.”

What is even more alarming is that these numbers may not represent more than a fraction of the “victims” of medical malpractice including a family of individuals killed or seriously injured by medical negligence. At Fellerman & Ciarimboli, we are dedicated to helping those who have been injured by medical malpractice and their families achieve justice. Each case is unique and we have an experienced team of legal and medical professionals that review and investigate each case. We know that losing a loved one or being seriously injured as a result of medical malpractice is a devastating experience. We work with each client to ensure that they understand the legal process and ultimately answer the question of why their loved one is gone or hurt. With Fellerman & Ciarimboli working for you and your family, you can rest assured that we will be fighting against the medical and insurance establishment each and every day to protect your rights as a patient.

We welcome any questions, for a free consultation regarding your case please call us at (570) 714-4878.
