Personal Injury

Washington, D.C. Personal Injuries Attorney Ready to Help

Personal injury is a serious matter that can drastically affect your health, your job, your family and your future. If you have suffered an injury because of someone else’s negligence, you need an experienced personal injury attorney by your side. While you concentrate on getting well, I will diligently pursue the compensation you need to get your life back on track. I handle all manner of injuries, including those involving:

  • Auto accidents
  • Medical malpractice
  • Unsafe products
  • Dangerous drugs
  • Slip-and-falls
  • Unsafe work conditions

Auto accidents 
Auto accidents have the potential to negatively impact your job, your family, your health and your quality of life. Even an apparently minor traffic accident may result in serious injuries. If you have been hurt because someone was negligent, you are entitled to compensation for your injuries, including pain and suffering, past and future medical bills, and lost income.  I have successfully represented clients injured in auto accidents in Washington, D.C. for 33 years.

Medical malpractice
I have successfully represented medical malpractice clients Washington, D.C., routinely obtaining generous awards in cases involving orthopedic surgeries, emergency medicine, hospital nursing care, cosmetic surgeries, prescription drug mistakes, psychiatric care and eye surgeries.

Unsafe products
You reasonably assume the products you use will not harm you. When this assumption proves to be false and a product does injure you, you may have a right to compensation. I can help you recover the compensation to which the law entitles you.

District of Columbia law imposes upon businesses an obligation to protect the public from unsafe conditions on the business premises. If a business fails to exercise the legally-required duty of care and you are injured as a result, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries. I employ a practical, professional approach to ensure that my clients obtain full and fair compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

Wrongful death
I possess a thorough understanding of District of Columbia wrongful death law. I have been providing assistance to families with wrongful death lawsuits for more than 33 years.

Motorcycle accident
Motorcycle accidents are not the same as car or truck accidents or other personal injury cases. The structure and handling of a bike creates unique characteristics and circumstances exclusive to motorcycle cases. I am well-versed in the particulars of representing injured motorcyclists.

Train accident
Successful representation of a train wreck victim requires skills in a number of complex disciplines and areas of legal practice. I apply my knowledge about federal regulations, transportation requirements, labor law, personal injury, insurance, civil litigation and mediation to obtain the best possible award for your injury or wrongful death claim. I conduct a thorough investigation of the cause of the railroad accident and the extent of your injuries, and consult regularly with trauma doctors, chiropractors, forensic engineers, railroad engineers and accident reconstruction analysts who know the railroad industry and train mechanics thoroughly.

Truck accident
Because trucks are heavier and larger than cars, accidents involving trucks tend to cause more severe injuries and have a higher fatality rate. Many trucking accidents can be avoided if truck drivers and responsible companies act with a minimum standard of care.  When they do not, I use my 33 years of experience in truck accident law to prove those companies’ and individuals’ negligence and liability.

Mesothelioma is a preventable form of cancer caused by the negligence of asbestos manufacturers and other companies that willfully exposed you to the hazard. If you have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, obtaining the right treatment can improve your prognosis. I have helped clients recover the compensation they need to pursue essential medical treatment.

Subject matter experts to help with your case
I have witnessed the heartache that results from serious injuries and wrongful deaths. With compassion and resolve, I have achieved justice for families devastated by motor vehicle accidents, defective products, dangerous prescription drugs, unsafe work conditions and professional medical negligence. I take great satisfaction in helping injured victims obtain full compensation for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress, and pain and suffering. By teaming with the finest physicians, engineers and other experts, I am able to maximize your recovery.

Affordable attorneys prepared to help you
The inability to work and accumulating medical bills can add financial strain to the stress of injury. I handle your personal injury claim on a contingency fee basis so you do not have to pay me to represent you until I recover compensation through either settlement or trial.

Contact me today
Consulting an attorney immediately following an injury is essential to the preservation of crucial evidence and witness testimony. In addition, Washington, D.C. law places time limits on filing personal injury claims. To ensure timely investigation of your claim, I can schedule appointments on weekends or evenings and will make hospital and home visits.
