Personalized Legal Advocacy For Your Personal Injury Claim
A serious injury can impact all aspects of your life and make it difficult to function or to take care of those you love. While some accidents cannot be predicted or prevented, most can be attributed to the negligence of another person, business, or organization. In these cases, you have both the right and the need to seek appropriate compensation to help you pay for medical care, property damage, lost wages, and other expenses.
You can’t rely on the at-fault parties or insurance companies to take full responsibility on their own. Instead, contact the Law Office of Peter J. Carman, S.C. I bring over 20 years of experience to your case, and I work with you directly throughout the duration of your legal matter. When you hire my firm, you receive the care, attention, and legal skill that you deserve.
Helping Car Accident Victims Recover Fair Compensation
Motor vehicle accidents are a major focus of my practice because they are one of the most common sources of injury. While most people in Appleton are drivers, there are also a lot of pedestrians/bicyclists. In places where both types of travel occur, accident rates tend to be significantly higher.
Additionally, the highways that run throughout the Fox Valley are filled with large truck traffic. When commercial truck drivers fail to drive professionally and defensively, they put all other drivers at risk of catastrophic injuries. You can learn more about this aspect of my firm’s practice by visiting the auto accidents page.
If you were involved in a motor vehicle accident while working as a commercial driver or otherwise traveling as part of your job, you are likely entitled to worker’s compensation benefits.
Preventable Injuries Suffered On Dangerous Private Property
I can also help you seek accountability and compensation if you were injured as the result of unsafe conditions on private property or property owned and maintained by the city. This is a subset of personal injury law known as premises liability. Examples of injury claims include:
- Slip-and-fall accidents on icy sidewalks or in parking lots that should have been shoveled and salted
- Slipping and falling or tripping and falling in stores because of unmarked wet floors or merchandise left strewn on the floor
- Elevator and escalator injuries
- Dog bites and animal attacks from other people’s pets that were not properly socialized and adequately restrained
- Injuries caused by dangerous conditions at an apartment complex that the manager and/or owner knew about but failed to remedy
Proving liability in these cases often comes down to showing that a property owner failed to mitigate a hazard or to warn visitors about it despite knowing about that hazard and having adequate time to address it. If you believe you have a legal cause of action but aren’t sure, I am happy to review your legal options at no charge.
