By Attorney Grace Reeves

The attorneys at Legler, Murphy & Battaglia, LLP, can help with many types of personal injury cases. We have been handling car accident cases for over thirty-two years. In addition, our attorneys also have extensive experience in many other types of personal injury claims.

Personal injury claims do not always involve car accidents. A personal injury claim can be any injury caused by someone else’s negligence. However, attorneys must be able to prove the other party’s negligence and that the negligence caused a victim’s injuries. The value of personal injury claims can vary.

The following list is an example of the many different types of personal injury claims that our Firm handles:

1. Negligent Security Accident cases can include:
• Poor lighting in a public place, such as a parking garage or apartment building;
• Faulty or improperly maintained security systems and video monitoring;
• Lack of signage;
• Lack of emergency exits or improperly lit emergency exit signs; and
• Not enough security guards to secure the area or improperly trained security guards.

2. Bicycle and Pedestrian Accident cases can include:
• Faulty sidewalks and roadways;
• Drivers not paying attention to pedestrians and bicyclist; and
• Drivers not paying attention to traffic signals and signs.

3. Work Accident cases can include:
• Construction work;
• Hospitality work;
• Health care work;
• Restaurant and service work; and
• Any industry where injuries can be sustained.

4. Slip and Fall Accident cases can include:
• Wet floor;
• Defective stairs; and
• Rough or uneven ground or flooring.

5. Premises Liability Accident cases can include:
• A dog bite or attack;
• Poor lighting, fire hazards and unstable buildings that cause injury or death;
• Public pool hazards that cause accidents;
• A lack of maintenance on a property, leading to dangerous conditions; and
• Amusement park ride injuries.
