If you have incurred injury because of another person or company's negligence or intentional tort, you may be entitled to recover damages from those responsible. As your personal injury attorney, we will seek to prove who is responsible for your injury and that the you are entitled to compensation for his or her injury. Your case will receive personal and substantial analysis. We act in your best interests, whether it be in pursuing a fair and equitable settlement, or pursuing litigation.

The Neagle Law Firm represents people in most personal injury matters, including:

  • Auto Accidents
  • Medical Malpractice including Brain Injuries and Birth Injuries
  • Pedestrian Accidents
  • Premises Liability

Background:

Generally, a tort is a wrong to individual, whether you were struck by an automobile, you go to a doctor or lawyer for professional services and those services are not performed to a proper standard, or you purchase a refrigerator that blows up resulting in injury.

Some of the main purposes of tort law are to:

  • compensate a person for unreasonable harm done to him or her. In other words, to make him or her whole again. In reality, this is sometimes not possible, but the goal is clear;
  • provide peaceful means for adjusting rights of parties who might otherwise take the law into their own hands;
  • encourage socially responsible behavior;
  • deter risky / wrongful conduct;
  • cause a person who in best position to control actions, take more care; and
  • be fair.

 

The three basic types of tort liability are:

1. intentional torts such as assault and battery, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress;

2. negligent torts such as most automobile accidents and professional malpractice; and

3. strict liability such as injuries caused by dangerous activities.

Additionally, when injury results from a defective product, or one that fails to meet certain standards, you may have a valid claim in Product Liability based upon any of negligence, warranty (merchantability), or strict liability theories.

 

Automobile accident cases are the most common personal injury claims in our courts today. If you have been hurt or lost a loved one in an automobile accident, it is in your best interests to contact a legal professional. We are aware of the complications and legal complexities involved in this kind of case, particularly if the insurance company denies damages.

Personal injury law is complex and negligence can be difficult to prove. The Neagle Law Firm can effectively establish and present the facts of your case to ensure that you receive fair compensation. Because of the Statute of Limitations, it is important that you act quickly so that you do not permanently lose your right to file a claim.
