Motor Collision Vehicles
Car accidents are a common occurrence that cause significant, life-altering damage. Motor vehicle collisions can result in death and disability, as well as financial costs to the individuals involved. Our team is skilled at handling limited tort, full tort and cases involving the uninsured. We also handle claims involving defective designs of vehicles and/or collisions involving vehicles that are the subject of recalls. Whether you’re riding a motorcycle, a pedestrian crossing the street, or a pedestrian on a bicycle, we can help.
Slip and fall accidents can result in serious injuries that, in some cases, can be traced to the negligence or inattention of a property owner. The circumstances involving such incidents require immediate and thorough investigation. Our team is capable of leading investigations that can help recover the compensation you need for medical expenses and/or lost wages.
Have you received harmful, substandard treatment from a medical professional? More than a million people per year suffer injuries from medical malpractice - which is professional negligence by act or omission by a health care provider that can result in injury or even death. Our firm has extensive experience working with physicians to evaluate claims of neglect at nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury as a result of a medical error, our team can help.
Birth injuries can cause devastation during a time that is meant to be joyous for individuals and families. These injuries are the result of careless or intentional acts by healthcare providers that can cause significant or irreparable harm to babies before or during birth.
We know how difficult it is to lose a loved one. That loss can be magnified when that death is the result of the negligent act or omission of another person. In these instances, surviving family members may have the right to bring a claim on behalf of their deceased loved one. Lassiter & Associates can help you identify appropriate representation and investigate all parties that may be responsible for your loved one’s death.
Sometimes injuries are the result of an establishment’s failure to appropriately secure their property or venue. We provide assistance to clients who are injured while present at nightclubs, bars, or other event venues.
