Bicycle Accident Attorney

Cycling is probably one of the best cardiovascular exercises 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 operators of automobiles, cycling can be hazardous. Many drivers just don’t pay attention to what is on the street ahead of or around them. cars can be very dangerous to an individual riding a bike considering all of the distractions such as cell-phones, radios, children screaming in the back seat that many drivers have to contend with. Although the automobile gives substantial protection to its driver, a bike doesn’t provide protection to its rider. Because of this, serious injuries and death can happen because 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 motor vehicle while riding your bicycle in the area, contact the team at Krasney Law for a cost-free consultation.

Brain Injury Attorney

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

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

Depending on the severity of the dog bite, it can require major re-constructive surgery. We care for dogs but we don’t love irresponsible dog owners. Most cities, including , have ordinances in place to help help prevent dog bite injuries.

Children and adults are both 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 often assume that a limb fracture is no big deal. 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 resulting from an automobile crash or a knee joint break that occurs when a pedestrian is struck by a car in a crosswalk is a serious fracture that can have long-term issues. 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 fractured wrist, finger or arm for a senior citizen after a fall in a nursing home can be complicated as healing takes more time than it does for a younger person.

The cost of medical care for serious breaks over the long term can be far more than expected. If you agree to an early settlement offer from the insurance company, you may end up with unpaid medical bills and no chance for full reimbursement of your losses and expenses.

Medical Malpractice Attorney

If you’ve been hurt under a doctor’s care or if a family member has died as a result of a medical professional’s actions or because of their inaction, you may have reason to file a case 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 occurs and you are hurt as a result, you may have grounds for a medical malpractice lawsuit.

In determining if the health care professional followed the standards of good medical practice, also known as the standard of care, the judge or jury taking your case will look at the generally accepted method of treating people 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 injured you.

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

Motorcycle Accident Attorney

Motorcycle riders, and the injuries they receive 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 automobile, can result in serious injuries to a motorcycle rider.

Motorcycles are vulnerable to a unique set of risks on the road, meaning even the most experienced riders can crash. Motorcycle accidents can occur because of 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 can inflict 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, contact the group at Krasney Law.

Pedestrian Accident Attorney

When a vehicle hits a pedestrian, the injuries can be extremely severe. Severe spinal, head, neck,paralysis, broken bones, or loss of a limb may all happen 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 many times affix the blame on the pedestrian, saying that the pedestrian should have seen the car coming and got out of the way. Many times it is difficult 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 no-cost consultation.

Slip and Fall Attorney

In the case of a slip or fall incident, 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 desire 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 can happen in a variety of ways. All business establishments can be sued for slips, falls, and collisions. The owners of a business may 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 prevent every slip and fall accident from happening. They require that businesses use 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 many types of personal injury only if you can prove that the business failed in these duties.
