Personal Injury & Wrongful Death Services

Car Accidents

When someone is injured in a car accident it is important for them to obtain the just compensation they deserve and insurance companies do not make that easy. Unfortunately, insurance companies are essentially in the business of avoiding paying out claims. Hiring an attorney can help resolve the issues on both the property damage side and the personal injury side. Many insurance companies will try to get away with only paying out property damage or only reimbursing an individual for their out-of-pocket medical expenses, when in reality you are entitled to full compensation for all injuries stemming from the accident.

Medical Malpractice

Doctors are required by law to practice medicine in a way that meets the standard of care established by the profession. Unfortunately, sometimes doctors fail to meet that standard of care by either failing to diagnose, wrongful diagnosis, failure to treat, or an improper course of treatment. The Simmons Law Firm has previously handled claims in these areas and also claims involving hospital acquired infections. To have a successful medical malpractice case, evidence must be shown that the doctor failed to meet the standard of care. This is ordinarily done through the use of expert witnesses.

Slip & Falls

Retail spaces and restaurants are required by law to provide a safe environment for their patrons. If such a place allows an unsafe condition to exist on their property for an unreasonably long period of time and someone is injured as a result, then that person may have a case to bring a personal injury action against the owner. Additionally, The Simmons Law Firm has pursued cases where retail environments were not compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act and that resulted in injury.

Wrongful Death

Wrongful death is a separate type of lawsuit that is the extension of other personal injuries. However, in a wrongful death lawsuit the family members are the plaintiffs and not the injured person. In a wrongful death action, the family members are attempting to obtain a judgment for the pain and suffering they felt for the wrongful death of their loved one.
