Accidents and Injuries

Personal injury lawsuits cover a wide spectrum of injuries and accidents. The most common types of personal injury claims include car accidents, boating accidents, industrial accidents, toxic exposure and poisoning, defective drugs and other products, animal bites, and aviation accidents. However, personal injury lawsuits cover many other legal issues, as well. If you have recently been injured due to another party's negligence, please give us a call for a personal evaluation of your claim. We don't take our clients for granted, so you'll get the personal attention and zealous advocacy you deserve if we are able to accept your case.

Professional negligence by a health care provider is an act or omission that a similarly-trained health care provider using ordinary care would not have done under the same or similar circumstances. For example, a doctor or hospital can be sued for failing to order tests, missing a diagnosis, delaying treatment or other unreasonable conduct which causes injury to a patient. Malpractice cases are almost always very hotly contested. Most health care providers will not readily admit they have done wrong, and they can almost always find a colleague to defend their professional judgment. Law firms accepting malpractice cases must invest substantial time and lots of money to help prove that the care (or lack of it) caused the patient's bad outcome. However, it is important to understand that not all undesirable medical results are considered medical malpractice. Negligence must be present for medical malpractice to have occurred.

The negligence can be either an overt act or a failure to act. The large majority of medical malpractice cases result from negligence in the diagnosis, treatment, or management of patients' illnesses. Errors committed during laparoscopic surgery or other surgical procedures, the failure to diagnose serious conditions, and mistakes that result in birth injuries or other types of personal injury are just some examples of situations where medical malpractice may be present. If you believe that you or someone you know has been a victim of medical negligence, call us for a free, no-obligation consultation. As a registered nurse, as well as an attorney who's been involved in literally hundreds of medical negligence cases, John Fuentes will give you an open and honest assessment of your claim.

Owners of businesses have a duty to maintain their premises in order to protect their customers. When safety standards are not followed, that business owner may be guilty of negligence. Suffering an injury from the failure of a property owner to follow reasonable safety standards may result in you having to receive costly medical treatment, as well as losing time from work. It also goes without saying that any injury suffered by someone causes undue pain and emotional stress. Our legal staff works to simplify your claim processing and take care of all the details so you can just concentrate on healing. We will aggressively pursue your claim to give you the best chance of obtaining the monetary compensation you deserve.
