Wrongful Death Lawyer
We have helped many clients, including loved ones, through the grief of losing a family member due to the wrongful actions of another person or company. Wrongful death litigation involves obtaining compensation after loss of life for the deceased’s loved ones. In order to have a wrongful death action, the death must have occurred due to the negligent or wrongful act of an individual or corporation. A wrongful death can result from a car accident, asbestos, dangerous product, murder, or other wrongful act. Partner with a results-driven accident lawyer to defend your rights.
Medical Malpractice Lawyer
Missouri’s tort reform legislation in 2005 changed the landscape of medical malpractice litigation significantly. It is now far more difficult and costly to successfully prosecute a medical malpractice action. If injuries are not serious or permanent, a lawyer will find it difficult in invest the substantial sums necessary to succeed in these actions. Even with serious and permanent injuries, approximately half of the medical malpractice cases that go to trial result in a defense verdict.
Mesothelioma – Asbestos Lawyer
The Carey Law Firm, LLC is a Missouri mesothelioma law firm. Jeffrey J. Carey assists clients in Kansas and Missouri that have developed mesothelioma or asbestosis. We have the experience to maximize the recovery in your case. The only known cause of mesothelioma and asbestosis is exposure to asbestos. An individual that has contracted these diseases may not be able to identify the specific time or place that they may have been exposed to asbestos. Most people are exposed in a current or former workplace. Some people are exposed due to a family member’s employment or due to general environmental exposure.
Bad Faith Insurance Lawyer
Insurance plays an important role in our society. The average American cannot afford to pay for the most catastrophic losses that they may experience in their life. By joining with others, however, they can pay insurance premiums that distribute the risk of a catastrophic loss or liability. The primary purpose of insurance should be to pool that risk of loss and provide insurance coverage in a time of need.
Semi-Tractor Trailer Accident Lawyer
Trucking cases present special problems and traps, which is why it is vital to choose the right lawyer who can act quickly to investigate the case and preserve evidence. Important information about an accident can be found in black box controllers for the truck, GPS data about the truck, and documents determining if the truck driver had the appropriate amount of rest at the time of the wreck.
Swimming/Boating Accident Lawyer
ASTM standards for swimming pool design apply to design and safety issues in commercial swimming pools. There are divergent standards governing the proper conduct and training of lifeguards. In addition, cases involving injury in boating accidents have a complex interrelationship between statutory duties of operators and potential product defect issues. A lawyer can help to navigate this complex issue.
Slip & Fall Lawyer
Some slip and falls are simply a accidents. However, often the business or individual who owns the property where the slip and fall occurs may be liable for any injuries. The exact nature of the duty owed by the property owner is determined by a complicated legal doctrine that examines your relationship to the landowner and categorizes you as a trespasser, licensee, or invitee. An accident lawyer can help determine this status. In nearly every fall that occurs on a business premises you will be considered an invitee. A landowner owes a duty to an invitee to make its premises safe for those that it invites on its property for its business purposes. Liability can attach if the landowner has a slick surface on their premises or fails to properly warn of dangerous conditions or, where feasible, remove dangerous conditions.
Inadequate Security Lawyer
Businesses have a duty to help keep employees and visitors secure on their property. If they know that crime rates are exceptionally high in the area, they have heightened responsibilities. In addition, when private security forces use force they are responsible for excessive use of force causing injury. A skilled accident lawyer can help.
Products Liability Lawyer
Dangerous products have been eliminated from commerce due to defective product litigation. Federal and state regulation have had a substantial effect on the safety of the products we use every day in our lives. Often, however, products liability lawsuits have been responsible for safety reform. Corporations are motivated by return to their shareholders. When a corporation is forced to internalize the harm caused by their products human safety becomes part of the profit calculation. Efficient markets are promoted by forcing companies to pay for the harm caused by their product. Because of the consumer’s right to bring a products liability lawsuit, manufacturers know that if they create a product that is unreasonably dangerous, they subject themselves to serious liability. When dealing with a corporation, it’s essential to have an experienced lawyer on your side.
Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer
During the time of greatest need in our family’s lives, nursing homes sometimes provide indifferent care or intentionally victimize the elderly.
