Bicycle Accident Attorney

Cycling is known to be one of the best cardiovascular workout you can give your body. Usually, the impact on your joints and body in general are minimal as well (compared to other cardio exercises like running). Cycling is one of the most popular ways to exercise in the world and is very popular in the area.

Unfortunately, due to the negligence of some drivers of cars, biking can be hazardous. Many drivers simply don’t pay attention to what is on the road ahead of or around them. Automobiles can be quite hazardous to an individual riding a bike considering all of the issues such as cell-phones, radios, kids screaming in the back seat that many drivers have to deal with. even though the automobile provides substantial protection to its driver, a bike doesn’t provide safety to its rider. Because of this, serious injuries and death can be the result of an automobile-bicycle accident. That is why it is so important to have an knowledgeable bike accident attorney on your side.

If you have been hurt by a car while riding your bike in the area, call the team at Krasney Law for a cost-free consultation.

In auto crashes when the person’s head hits something hard, a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) often happens . The human brain is very complex and very delicate, even if the head hits the headrest or steering wheel damage may occur. Another serious factor is that the brain has very limited power to heal under certain circumstances.

Often, a traumatic brain injury is not discovered by the doctor because the patient fails to tell the physician about issues such loss of short term memory and personality change. Sometimes the issues of a brain injury may not appear right away.

Most cities, including , have rules in place to help help prevent dog bite injuries.

Children and adults alike are subject to not only the physic effect of the dog bite, but also suffer the ongoing psychological trauma and emotional distress, especially if the visible scars from the dog bite are to the face, hands or lower arms.

Fracture Attorney

People many times assume that a limb fracture is not a big issue. Get it set, go home and let it heal. There are several types of bone injuries and each has to be treated accordingly.

Compound fractures because of an automobile crash or a knee joint break that occurs when a pedestrian is struck by a automobile in a crosswalk is a serious fracture that can have long-term effects. The crushing bone injury to the ankle and leg that a motorcyclist’s receives when he or she is sideswiped by a car in a motorcycle accident can lead to serious disability. Even a broken wrist, finger or arm for a senior citizen after a fall in a nursing home can be complicated as healing takes longer than it does for a younger person.

The cost of medical care for serious fractures over the long term can be far more than expected. If you agree to an early settlement offer from the insurance company, you may have unpaid medical bills and no chance for full reimbursement of your losses and expenses. Contact the group at Krasney Law for your free-no-cost consultation as soon as possible.

Medical Malpractice Attorney

If you’ve been hurt under a doctor’s care or if a family member has died because of a medical doctor’s actions or because of their inaction, you may have reason to file a lawsuit against the health care provider.

Medical malpractice occurs when a health care provider such as a doctor, nurse or medical care center is negligent and deviates from the standards of what is accepted as good medical practice. If that happens and you are injured as a result, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

In determining whether the health care professional followed the standards of good medical practice, also known as the standard of care, the judge or jury hearing your lawsuit will look at the generally accepted method of treating patients in your area with similar medical problems. At trial, it must proven that the health care provider’s act or omission was a mistake, but also that this mistake hurt you.

If you live in the area and think you are a victim of medical malpractice, call the team at Krasney Law today.

Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycle riders, and the injuries they suffer as a result of an accident, are unique for several different reasons. Due to a lack of protection between riders, the road, and other vehicles, motorcyclists many times suffer very serious injuries during accidents. What might be a simple “fender bender” to someone in a full size car, can result in catastrophic injuries to a motorcycle rider.

Motorcycles are susceptible to a unique set of risks on the road, meaning even the most knowledgeable riders can crash. Motorcycle accidents can be caused by several factors, such as:

  • Construction zones
  • Road hazards
  • Distracted drivers
  • Motorists failing to yield the right of way
  • Vehicle drivers changing lanes without yielding

Neck and Back Injury Attorney

The jarring forces of an car accident can wreak havoc on the complex, criss-crossing structures of the back and neck. Even though the neck and back can absorb a lot of punishment, the forces resulting from a wreck may cause damage to many of those interconnected structures.

At Krasney Law, we realize how painful and disabling a neck or back injury can be. We realize that a “minor” back injury often gets worse before it improves.

From permanent injuries to soft tissue injuries, these are some of the more common neck and back injuries associated with an accident:

  • Fractured vertebrae
  • Herniated disk (ruptured disk)
  • Lower back sprains and strains
  • Pinched nerves or chronic pain
  • Whiplash (cervical strain/sprain)
  • Spinal cord injury/paralysis

For all of your neck and back injury questions, call the team at Krasney Law.

Pedestrian Accident Attorney

When a vehicle strikes a pedestrian, the injuries can be extremely severe. Severe spinal, head, neck,paralysis, broken bones, or loss of a limb can all occur to pedestrians when they are struck by vehicles.

Often, the driver of the vehicle, or their insurance company, will try to shift the blame for the accident onto the pedestrian. Police often claim that the pedestrian was not inside the crosswalk when they arrive at the scene, as the pedestrian has fallen outside the crosswalk area. Insurance adjusters will often place the blame on the pedestrian, saying that the pedestrian should have seen the car coming and got out of the way. Often it is harder to get an insurance company to pay for the injury to a pedestrian than it is to pay for the injury to a person inside a vehicle.

If you or a loved one has been involved in a vehicle vs. pedestrian accident in the area, call the Krasney Law team for a complimentary consultation.

Slip and Fall Attorney

In the case of a slip or fall accident, the law doesn’t hold businesses responsible for the accident unless the company or its employees failed to meet a legal duty of care.
If you want to sue for an injury that happened at a business location, you must show that the business was legally at fault.

Slip and fall injuries may occur in a variety of ways. All business establishments can be sued for slips, falls, and collisions. The owners of a business can be sued based on poor hiring, supervision, or training of employees. Each state has its own laws that determine the standards of care that can apply in any personal injury case involving a business.

Courts understand that businesses can’t preclude every slip and fall accident from happening. They require that businesses exercise the same amount of care as a reasonably prudent person would. This means guarding against foreseeable problems and taking reasonable precautions to prevent accidents. You can recover damages for most types of personal injury only if you can prove that the business failed in these duties.
