Personal Injury Law

If you have been injured due to the intentional or negligent action of another, you may be entitled to compensation. Personal injury actions also include medical malpractice, premise liability, and products liability and are designed to compensate a victim for pain and suffering, loss of earnings, loss of consortium, and sometimes punitive damages in the event of gross negligence. The Leventhal Law Group represents clients who have suffered injuries arising out of situations such as motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls, construction accidents, sexual assaults, defective products, and wrongful death arising from the negligence or misconduct of another.

Premise Liability

A premise owner has a duty to maintain a safe property and can be held responsible for injuries that occur to another on their property if they were negligent in keeping the premises safe, or willfully disregarded the safety of others. For example, if a property owner knew or should have known about a condition that was unsafe, and that condition caused someone's injury, the property owner is liable for that injury.

Injuries that occur in a home, store, office, or commercial building may all fall under the category of premise liability. In addition to holding a property owner liable, liability may also be imposed on general contractors, architects, and manufacturers. Some common examples of situations invoking premise liability include but are not limited to:

  • Slip and falls
  • Sidewalk injuries
  • Injuries resulting from inadequate lighting
  • Concealed holes
  • Defects in chairs or benches that cause injury

If you have been injured, or a loved one has died due to a premise owner's negligence or willful disregard for keeping their property safe, contact an experienced personal injury attorney who will fight for your right to compensation. The Leventhal Law Group provides skilled and reliable representation to clients who have suffered injuries due to such negligence.

Automobile Accidents

Automobile accidents are a major cause of injuries nationwide. In fact, according to statistics, 5.6 million car accidents occurred in 2012 including 30,000 fatal accidents and 1.6 involving injuries.

If you have been in an automobile accident, seek medical attention immediately. It is not uncommon for those who have been in vehicular accidents to suffer internal injuries that are not immediately apparent. Additionally, the severity of your injuries, how long you waited to pursue medical attention, and your course of treatment are all factors that are considered by an insurance company in deciding whether to settle your case, or take it to trial.

In addition to bringing a claim to an insurance company, a victim of a car accident may also be entitled to compensation from any negligent party for injuries, loss of earnings, medical expenses, loss of consortium, etc. Injuries resulting from automobile accidents may include:

  • Whiplash
  • Head, neck and back injures
  • Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
  • Broken bones, fractures
  • Lacerations
  • Face and eye injuries
  • Emotional injuries
  • Death

If you have been in a car accident that was caused by someone else's negligence or recklessness, contact an experienced attorney who is experienced in handling personal injury cases arising from automobile accidents. The Leventhal Law Group provides reliable and skilled representation and will aggressively pursue your claim.

Medical Malpractice

When we seek treatment from a doctor, we trust them to provide excellent medical attention. However, sometimes those in the medical profession fail to adhere to the accepted medical standards of practicing medicine. In that case, medical malpractice occurs. Some common types of medical malpractice include:

  • Misdiagnosis
  • Failure to diagnose illness or injury
  • Making an error in surgery
  • Making an error in administering medication or treatment

Medical malpractice can have devastating effects on a patient. In addition to worsening their condition, it can also result in death. No one should have to suffer due to a medical professional's negligence. If you have suffered injury due to a medical professional's failure to act in accordance with the standards of the medical profession, contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible to avoid the statute of limitations on your claim barring your ability to bring an action. The Leventhal Law Group represents clients who have suffered injuries due to medical malpractice and will aggressively pursue your claim and right to compensation.

Construction Accidents

Construction accidents occur much too frequently due to employer negligence and willful disregard of safety regulations.

If you have been injured on a construction site, contact an experienced construction accident attorney immediately to avoid the statute of limitations running on your claim. While many employees have Workers' Compensation benefits, they may be insufficient to cover the most severe injuries.
