Personal Injury Law
Every injury claim, regardless of its basis (intentional, negligence, or strict liability), has two basic issues—liability and damages. Was the defendant at fault, and, if so, what are the nature and extent of your damages? If we can prove liability and damages, our system of justice allows for compensation for you.
Negligence is a failure to exercise the care that a reasonably prudent person would exercise in like circumstances. If an injured person proves that another person acted negligently to cause their injury, they can recover damages to compensate for their harm.
If you’ve been injured in the workplace, you’ve probably been told that the only compensation you can receive will come from workers’ compensation. There are many exceptions, and Lawyer Kyle D. Pierce works to get you fully compensated.
Construction sites can be very dangerous, requiring precautions and safety measures to protect both workers and others. If you or someone you love was injured in a construction accident, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your losses.
When a person dies or is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another the surviving members of the victim’s family may sue for “wrongful death.” Lawyer Kyle D. Pierce works to bring justice and closure for your loss.
Medical malpractice occurs when a hospital, doctor, or other health care provider, through a negligent act or omission, causes an injury to a patient. The negligence might be the result of errors in diagnosis, treatment, aftercare, or health management.
