Personal Injury

Personal injury actions arise when a person is injured through either the intentional or negligent actions of another. Some of the most common types of personal injury claims are traffic collisions, injuries in a store, assault claims and product defects (product liability). If the injured party is able to prove that their injury resulted from the wrongdoer's actions, they may be entitled to all damages, including pain and suffering that resulted.

Negligence

Examples of negligence actions include, among other things, automobile collisions (car accidents), slip and falls, and injuries from defective products. Generally, negligence actions occur when someone acts carelessly and another is injured as a result.

Intentional Harms

Examples of intentional harms (also known as intentional torts) include assault, battery, defamation, slander, conversion (theft) and fraud. Intentional harms occur when someone purposely acts in a way that causes harm (whether physical or financial) to another.

Automobile Collisions

There are over six million car crashes in the United States every year, resulting in billions of dollars in damage to property and people. Although occasionally these collisions are determined “no fault”, more often than not, one driver is the cause, and is therefore liable for the resulting injury.

Generally after an automobile collision, both drivers contact their insurance companies, and begin the long and complicated process of dealing insurance adjusters. This is time consuming, especially when often automobile collision victims are injured, and therefore taking time off work to go to doctors and likely living without a car.

Hiring a lawyer after an automobile collision can take some of the pressure off of you, allowing you to focus on what is most important – your health – while at the same time maximizing your recovery from the insurance company. If you have been injured in an automobile collision and would like an attorney to maximize your recovery, call the Law Office of Jamie Keeton to see if she can help.

Premises Liability

Most people are familiar with the so-called “slip and fall” cases – where a person is injured, generally at a retail store, when they fall and are injured. This is a small portion of premises liability cases – other types of premises liability include falling down stairs, exposed wiring, exposed nails or screws, loose railings, loose or missing bricks in walkways, and even inadequate security.

If you are injured on property owned by another, even if it is your landlord, you may be able to recovery money for your injuries. Owners of property generally have a duty to keep their premises safe. When someone is injured at a store, amusement park, bar, nightclub, restaurant, sports arena, casino, hotel or even a sidewalk, they may be able to recover money for their injuries, including pain and suffering and mental anguish. If you have been injured on the property of another, Jamie Keeton may be able to help. Call or email today for a free confidential consultation.

Product Defect

Although most products available to the general public have been tested for their safety, occasionally people still get hurt from using a product. This can either be because the design of the product is faulty, or the individual product was improperly manufactured, and is therefore defective.

Such varied products as automobiles, lawnmowers, power tools, curling irons, hair dryers, blenders, stereos, computers, printers and bicycles can be defective and cause injuries. Injuries from these products can include electrical shock, broken bones, burns, scarring and even death. If you have used a product that you believe caused your injury, you should consult an attorney. Call or email today for a free confidential consultation to see if Jamie Keeton can help you in your product defect case.
