Our team can help you with the following aspects of Personal Injury Law:
Claims for dog bites can be emotional for the dog owner and the injured party, often leading to very heated and impassioned legal arguments. Many dog owners have homeowner’s insurance that can provide sufficient compensation for most dog bite claims, unless the injuries are catastrophic.
If you find yourself in this situation, the personal injury lawyers at Nuñez & Associates can guide you through the precarious process of filing a claim against a dog owner and getting the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
Burn injuries may be the most traumatic of injuries along with brain injuries. Severely burned victims may have to endure numerous surgeries, skin grafts, laser treatments and other painful procedures. Chronic pain can last months or years and leave permanent, unsightly scars that can cause extreme emotional distress.
Burn injury claims are complex with many moving parts. Determining where the other party failed and what, exactly, they’re liable for under the law takes a skilled eye and capable professional. Our attorneys can help you determine how best to move.
Injuries on construction sites can be minor, such as straining your neck or back from heavy lifting or having an object fall on your foot. However, many injuries are traumatic and lead to a permanent disability where the worker must be trained or educated for another trade or occupation. In the worst case scenario, a worker may be totally disabled as a result of a workplace accident.
Being injured on a job site presents further complications because you’re required to deal with the workman’s compensation system. While beneficial, it’s also complicated and the insurance companies have attorneys on their side working hard to reduce their clients’ liability.
Premises liability law is part of personal injury practice and involves the responsibility of business, land or property owners to keep their property safe for those who are lawfully on their property. Under certain conditions, trespassers are also owed a limited duty of care.
Your premises liability claim will look different depending on where you were at the time of the injury, the specific circumstances surrounding your injury and how severe your injuries are. Only a qualified personal injury attorney can help you determine how best to proceed.
Swimming pools are almost a necessity in hot climates like Arizona. Injuries in swimming pool accidents range from minor to serious, including broken bones and head injuries from slip and falls, cuts and lacerations from slides, and brain injuries from near drownings.
While truly faultless accidents can happen, many swimming pool accidents can be attributed to some form of liability. Determining exactly where that liability falls is the first step in an effective swimming pool accident claim – then comes the challenge of proving it. Let us put that experience to work for you.
One of the most complex aspects of personal injury law, medical malpractice claims should only be handled by an experienced attorney, we don’t recommend that you try to file the claim on your own. Doctors and hospitals are heavily protected by insurance companies and other agencies and the evidence required to prove a medical malpractice claim is substantial.
Our team has the know-how needed to tackle your medical malpractice claim with strength and skill. Accustomed to dealing with tough insurance companies, we won’t back down until you’ve received the compensation you deserve.
Catastrophic injury accidents can occur suddenly and without warning, instantly changing a victim’s life. In many cases, the liability of the alleged wrongdoer or negligent party is not so apparent and must be proven by a skilled attorney.
Our attorneys can explore all avenues of liability, including that of other parties whose negligence may not be apparent. This includes looking for defects in equipment or a consumer product. Inadequate warnings, instructions or representations about a product can lead to serious bodily injuries if the product is used as intended but fails in some fashion that results in the injury.
When a bicyclist is injured due to the negligence, carelessness or outright rage of a motorist, we’re ready to help. Bicycle accidents can cause serious bodily injuries, not unlike those suffered by motorcycle riders. Compensation can come from the negligent driver’s insurer once the victim proves liability.
If the driver was not insured or possessed minimal liability coverage, you can still collect compensation if you own a car and have uninsured and underinsured coverage. These coverages should be in an amount appropriate to protect you and your family in case of a traumatic bike injury with a motor vehicle. Damages include financial loss, past and future medical expenses, rehabilitation costs, pain and suffering, and spousal claims for loss of consortium.
Property damage claims are generally handled through insurance companies and are based on the contract of insurance that covers a property damage loss or claim. Property damage losses generally arise over auto, business or homeowner claims.
The challenge with property damage claims is that the insurance companies are your adversary, not the person or people who actually damaged your property. Because coverage, policy limits, and liability can be difficult to maneuver with your insurance company when an accident has occurred, it can be helpful to have an attorney assist you with these claims.
Pedestrians are especially at the mercy of automobiles, trucks and motorcycles. There is no guarantee of safety for a pedestrian who lawfully crosses at a crosswalk, on a green light, or even while walking on a sidewalk. Pedestrians are at risk in parking lots as well from cars backing out or speeding down lanes.
If you or a loved one are the victim of a pedestrian accident, we are here to stand by your side and fight. Careless, distracted drivers must be held responsible for the harm they cause and we know exactly how to collect and organize evidence to create an effective, compelling claim that will result in the compensation you deserve.
