Serious Personal Injury and Wrongful Death
When tragedy hits home, Southeast Law is here to help you pick up the pieces. Suffering an injury or even worse, enduring the loss of a loved one, can be devastating.
The cases we handle in this area include:
- Motor Vehicle Accidents (Car, Truck, Motorcycle, Trucking)
- Premises or Landowner Liability
- On the Job Injuries
In the event of an injury, you may be entitled to recover past medical expenses, payment for future medical expenses, past and future loss of wages, damages for permanent impairment to your body, and compensation for the harms and losses suffered and will continue to suffer as long as the injury lasts.
In the unfortunate event of the death of a loved one, family members may be entitled to damages for the full value of the life of the loved one, including compensation for their wages and the value of household contributions over their lifetime. Medical, funeral and burial expenses, as well as compensation for any pre-death pain and suffering may also be reversible.
Business and Commercial Litigation
Sometimes complex disputes arise in business, and the only recourse for resolution is through litigation. Southeast Law can help both individuals and businesses in a variety of matters, including finances, breach of fiduciary duties, partnership disputes, bad faith, investments, fraud, and insurance disputes.
Product Defect Litigation
Products that are marketed and sold to consumers can be defective, dangerous and sometimes deadly. In many cases, the manufacturer of these products can be held responsible for the harm they cause to the user. Defects can be found in almost any kind of product from medical devices to motor vehicles.
Medical and Nursing Home Negligence
It’s unfortunate that medical providers make mistakes. They may fail to order certain tests, to review results, or to conduct procedures in an appropriate and timely manner. These failures may have caused harm to you or a loved one, or even death. If a medical provider fails to render appropriate treatment to you or a loved one, they may be liable for damages under the law.
If you suspect there is toxic mold in your home or business, it’s vital to have prompt testing to validate the presence and types of mold. The next step for a full assessment by experts is critical, to develop a remediation plan for removal. It is also imperative that you are instructed properly if you believe you have suffered adverse health effects. In addition to health effects, common losses include items such as structural damage, loss or damage to person property, additional living expenses and cleaning and storage of personal property.
If you feel you have been exposed, or are not being treated fairly by your insurance company in being able to remedy the mold situation, Southeast Law may be able to help.
Faulty workmanship can lead to significant deficiencies in residential and commercial buildings. These mistakes may be responsible for the compromised structure of the building, causing water intrusion, water and mold damage, loss of revenue, repair costs, increased carrying costs and in some instances, adverse health effects. Individuals and companies who performed this work may be responsible for damages causes by their inadequate work.
Class Action Lawsuits
Class action lawsuits are lawsuits that a person or persons file, on behalf of a larger group of individuals against an individual or a company seeking to recover damages or losses caused by that individual or company. These lawsuits are appropriate when several individuals have been harmed in the same way and the damages are capable of being determined in a relatively simple manner. These claims may include lawsuits against large corporations, credit card companies for standard fees paid by cardholders, or claims against utility companies for service charges paid by consumers.
When a loved one passes away, disputes frequently arise regarding the disposition of the loved one’s property. There can be questions about how the loved one chose to leave his or her property and to whom. Whether the loved one was competent to make decisions about his or her property, or whether others influenced the manner in which the loved one chose to dispose of his or her property, is something that may need to be resolved.
Federal Tort Claims Act Litigation
If a Federal employee has injured you, through no fault of your own, you may have recourse. Some examples include an auto accident with a government vehicle, or negligence from a medical provider in a Veterans hospital. A pre-suit claim must be filed against the Federal government, followed by a lawsuit against the government. The process for filing a pre-suit claim and the litigation process once a lawsuit is filed is a detailed one.
If a Federal worker has injured you, it is imperative that you seek counsel experienced in these types of claims. Southeast Law has successfully handled many tort claim cases, while successfully navigating through the complexities of the government.
