You may already face significant challenges if you have been injured in an accident. You may be unable to work and unable to take care of your family. You may be unable to pay your bills. You may be unable to live your life as you are used to.

Fortunately, you do not need to face these challenges alone. At Hoffer Trial Lawyers, we help accident victims get the compensation they need to get their lives back on track. If you have been injured due to someone else’s negligence, we can hold them accountable to get the compensation you deserve.

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor vehicle accident claims are among the most common personal injury cases lawyers handle. That does not mean that these cases are all the same. In fact, these cases can be far more complex than many people realize. From proving liability to tracking down all possible sources of compensation to establishing your claim for damages, a motor vehicle accident case can present numerous challenges when recovering your medical bills and other losses.

Proving Liability

The biggest hurdle in most car accident cases is proving that the other driver’s negligence caused the accident. You may believe that the other driver was obviously at fault, but if they contest liability, your case will come down to whether or not you can prove that they were negligent. You will need strong evidence to build a compelling case to support your claim for damages.

At HTL, we know what it takes to build a strong claim. We conduct an independent investigation of your accident to gather the necessary evidence. We call on experts when necessary. Brick by brick, we build the strongest possible case with the goal of getting the compensation you deserve as quickly as possible.

Maximizing Your Recovery

Most non-lawyers settle their cases for far less than they are worth. As a result, they cover many of their losses out of their own pockets. This is unacceptable if someone else’s negligence caused your car accident. If you have been injured in a car accident, you may be entitled to compensation for the following:

  • Both your current and future medical expenses
  • Your lost income, both current and future, as well as lost earning capacity
  • The cost to repair or replace your vehicle
  • Any other financial losses you have suffered as a result of your accident
  • Your pain and suffering

We will meticulously document your economic and non-economic losses so that you can present a clear, well-established claim. We locate all possible sources of compensation, including insurance. We then fight for maximum compensation so that you can rest assured that you can pay your bills and care for your family when your case is over.

Premises Liability and Slip and Fall Accidents

All property owners are legally obligated to ensure their property is safe for guests and visitors. Property owners can be negligent in the following ways:

  • By failing to inspect the property for obvious hazards
  • By failing to address known hazard
  • By failing to warn guests and visitors of known hazards that cannot be immediately addressed

A negligent property owner can be held liable if their negligence caused a reasonably foreseeable accident that resulted in injury. If the property owner is found liable, they may be responsible for compensating the victim for their medical bills, lost wages, and other losses.

There are many different types of premises liability claims. Slip and fall accidents are the most common—accidents that result in injuries when a person slips or trips due to a hazardous condition. These accidents can occur due to wet floors, torn carpeting, loose handrails, broken stairs, or other dangerous property conditions.

In addition to slip and fall accidents, there are other types of premises liability claims:

  • Negligent security (especially at apartment complexes and hotels)
  • Dog or animal attacks
  • Swimming pool accidents and drownings
  • Elevator and escalator accidents
  • Fires
  • Electrocution
  • Toxic Exposure

The bottom line is this: if you have been injured on another person’s property, HTL may be able to help you get compensation for your injuries and other losses. We will be able to determine whether the property owner was negligent and whether you are entitled to compensation.

Defective Products

At any given time, there are hundreds, if not thousands, of defective products on the market available for purchase by consumers. These products can cause serious injuries and sometimes even death. If a dangerous or defective product has injured you, HTL can investigate your case and determine whether you may be entitled to compensation.

To be clear, a defective product is not one that is broken or malfunctioning. A defective product is one that is unreasonably dangerous for consumers, even when used properly or as intended. There are three types of defects in consumer products:

  • Design defects where the product is designed in a way that makes it inherently dangerous. For example, an electric saw designed without the appropriate guard to protect the user’s hands may be considered defective by virtue of its design.
  • Manufacturing defects where the product is dangerous as a result of the way it was manufactured. Using the example of the electric saw above; a manufacturing defect would be if the blade regularly fractures because the manufacturer was using poor-quality steel.
  • Warning or instruction defects where the product does not include adequate warnings concerning known hazards or insufficient instructions for safe use. If the saw does not include instructions about how to use the saw safely, that would be considered a warning defect.
