Do We Handle Civil Suits?
I received a call today from a potential client. She said she had been on our website and saw that we handled cases involving automobile accidents, drunk driving accidents, semi tractor-trailer accidents , construction accidents and the like. She also said she knew that we worked frequently with people who have serious personal injury including brain injury, broken bones, spinal cord injuries, paralysis and disability. However she did not know whether we handled civil suits. This made me think that our website needs a little clarification.
There are two basics types of legal proceeding, Criminal and Civil. Criminal proceedings (aka criminal cases, criminal suits, criminal prosecutions) involve the government charging an individual with a crime. Civil proceedings (civil suits, civil claims, civil lawsuits, or civil administrative matters) involve all other types of legal proceedings. All claims involving serious personal injury are civil suits. This is all we do. Basically we represent anyone who has been seriously injured and the facts of their case establish that their injuries were caused by the negligence of another person. We carefully screen each case to make sure that the facts of any claim support the claim for serious injury. We do not waste our time on frivolous claims.
If you have been injured by the negligence of another person, please call or email us, we want to help.
