At HaukOwens, we are committed to representing individuals and the families of individuals who have suffered bodily harm or loss of life as a result of the carelessness or negligent conduct of others. These types of cases fall under the broad legal categories of Personal Injury and Wrongful Death.
Personal Injury refers to situations in which wrongful conduct causes temporary or permanent physical injury. Typically, in a personal injury suit, the injured party is seeking compensation for all of the losses they have experienced and will continue to experience as a result of that injury. These elements of damage may include medical expenses, loss of wages, pain and suffering, disability and disfigurement.
Wrongful Death refers to situations in which the wrongful conduct results in untimely death. In a wrongful death suit, a family member is seeks money damages for the death of a loved one. The damages recoverable include the loss of financial contributions made to the family by the deceased family member and the loss of love, companionship and affection each family member receives from the deceased family member’s continued existence.
Within these categories, our practice includes the following areas:
- Personal Injury
- Dog Bite
- Wrongful Death
- Car and Trucking Accidents
- Premises Liability
- Day Care Injury Lawsuits
- Elder Abuse Lawsuits
Because of the circumstances under which personal injury and wrongful death claims arise, individual cases don’t always fit neatly into one of these categories. One of our injury lawyers will be able to identify what type of claim you have, and which course of action is the best one for you to take.
Additionally, our clients seek our representation when they have been injured in the scope of their employment (Workers’ Compensation) or through the negligence of a medical practiontioner (Medical Malpractice).
