Tenacious Catastrophic Injury Attorneys Serving As Powerful Advocates For Clients
The law requires us to do anything we can at all times to act in a responsible manner and avoid putting anyone else at risk. When wrongful conduct leads to an accident—particularly one with life-long consequences—the process of choosing which civil litigators have the knowledge of tort law, the negotiation skills, and the determination to pursue your claim is absolutely critical. Feeling helpless in the face of both your physical recovery and your mental anguish in the aftermath of a devastating accident is understandable. As you handle a seemingly endless cycle of medical care, you need a legal support system to help you take back your life. A personal injury attorney intent on identifying all possible responsible parties for your injuries and negotiating a fair settlement to recoup all possible economic and non-economic damages can give you the peace of mind to navigate your next steps.
Only the most skilled civil litigators have the resources to pull in expert testimony and pursue all avenues to seek just compensation for your substantial losses. Slack Davis Sanger has established a reputation as the personal injury law firm that treats clients with compassion while pursuing effective legal strategies in the following types of cases:
Automotive accidents are the most common reason an individual may file a personal injury claim. Over two million Americans are injured or disabled after motor vehicle accidents each year—that’s more than 5,000 individuals whose lives are changed forever, each day. Many of these crashes could have been avoided if drivers followed recommended speed limits, refrained from using drugs and alcohol while driving, and observed other safety precautions. Victims of these accidents may experience soft tissue injuries, head injuries, internal injuries, and broken bones which, even with traditional insurance, can exhaust lifetime savings and impact your job future. The team of litigators at Slack Davis Sanger can apply a deep understanding of all possible legal avenues to pursue these claims in order to establish negligence and recover your rightful compensation.
Pilot error, mechanical failure, lack of fuel, and loss of control are just a few of the reasons that aviation accidents occur. When these tragedies take place, passengers can suffer spinal cord injuries, severe burns, traumatic brain injuries, and fractures, in addition to other forms of pain and suffering. In the aftermath of a plane or helicopter crash, permanent physical limitations can make working or enjoying hobbies difficult—or even impossible. With a stellar team of attorneys who are also licensed pilots, Slack Davis Sanger is equipped with the in-depth technical knowledge clients need to pursue justice so that victims can focus on moving on.
Almost three million workplace injuries were reported by private employers in the United States in 2016 alone. Two industries that account for a majority of the most serious accidents are oilfield and construction. Falls, collapsing trenches or scaffolds, electric shocks, fire, exposure to toxic chemicals, repetitive motion injuries, and dealing with heavy equipment put these workers at a high risk on a daily basis for a debilitating injury. The more consistent use of protective equipment, regular safety inspections, a culture of not taking shortcuts, and an orderly work site can all help avoid burns, slips and falls, and other preventable accidents. The legal team at Slack Davis Sanger has the resources and a deep understanding of the complexities of workplace safety regulations to help victims stand up to powerful corporations in these claims.
Dangerous Defective Products
If your injury is linked to the use of a product that was dangerous, in nearly every state you may be eligible to file a claim against the parties that designed, manufactured, sold and furnished the item. A qualified personal injury lawyer can establish strict product liability because of a design flaw, a manufacturing defect, the failure to adequately caution consumers about a potential hazard or risk—or even because of poor instructions on how to use a product. In some cases, product liability cases can turn into class action lawsuits if there are multiple individuals who can link a similar injury to the routine operation of a product. Slack Davis Sanger’s legal team has a solid understanding of the legal remedies and defenses which can result in the desired outcome for clients who are victims of accidents resulting from the use of a dangerous product.
Traumatic Brain Injuries & Spinal Cord Injuries
Each year, between 80,000 and 90,000 individuals experience a head injury which results in a long-term disability. Between 50 to 70 percent of these traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) were sustained in a motor vehicle accident, while recreational activities represent about one-fifth of these accidents among children and adolescents in the United States. The estimate of Americans currently living with a spinal cord injury is between 270,000 to around 350,000 individuals. Some of these injuries could have been prevented if drivers did not operate a vehicle while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, if workplace hazards were removed, and if safety precautions were followed during recreational activities. These types of injuries can be life-altering, resulting in significant medical bills, lost wages, rehabilitation costs, and out of pocket expenses—often with a related emotional toll. If you or a loved one was involved in a TBI or spinal cord accident where a third party was at fault, the personal injury lawyers at Slack Davis Sanger can evaluate your situation and build a strong case built on a comprehensive grasp of tort law.
Bicycle, Motorcycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Life-changing accidents don’t just occur in cars, planes, at work, or because of a dangerous product. In 2015, 0ver one hundred Americans were injured while riding on bikes each day when cyclists were hit by cars, fell, crashed, crossed over a surface that was in poor condition, or got into an accident because of a dog running in front of them. Fractures, paralysis, amputations, traumatic brain injuries and disfigurement are just a few of the possible outcomes of motorcycle accidents. The number of pedestrians that sustained injuries in crashes—an estimated 70,000—increased almost 15 percent from 2006 until 2015. Sadly, many of these crashes could have been avoided if a third party hadn’t demonstrated negligence or carelessness. Slack Davis Sanger is accomplished at doing the exhaustive research needed to help you or a loved one recover losses in the event of one of these tragic events.
In 2015 alone, over 2,000 Americans were injured in boating crashes, some of which could have been prevented, and many of which had tragic results for the passengers. The main contributing factors in these accidents were a distracted operator, an inexperienced driver, inadequate lookout, mechanical failure, and traveling at unsafe speeds. Recreational vessels involved in these catastrophic boating accidents can include sailboats, yachts, personal watercraft, airboats, kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, and pontoon boats. If you have been seriously injured in an accident on a boat, the professionals at Slack Davis Sanger can determine who may have been negligent and work with you to recover compensation for your losses.
