When you are harmed due to the negligence of others — from automobile and bicycle accidents to slip-and-fall injuries, workplace accidents, dog bites, medical errors and more — you need experienced, committed legal representation fighting for you. Our world is full of dangers that could have been avoided if responsible people had done their jobs correctly. But it’s you who suffer the consequences if you are injured. Unless you have The Mah Law Office on your side. In fact, if we discover that you have a case, you also won’t owe us a dime unless we win. See below for more details on specific types of injuries.
Most car accidents are due to the negligence of a driver — like Distracted Drivers on their phone and Impaired Drivers drunk or on drugs — or due to unsafe road conditions, where a driver is speeding, weather is bad, or if the road has potholes or debris in the way. Even defects in the car, like failing brakes or a blown-out tire, can put you at risk.
If you or a loved one has been injured — or a loved one killed — in an automobile accident, The Mah Law Office can help. Insurance companies are notorious for paying auto accident victims who have no attorney FAR LESS than those who have representation. Often, once an attorney is hired, victims have received 3 times the amount of an initial offer.
Serious motorcycle riders know — motorcycle accidents can be incredibly traumatic. Lifelong injuries, chronic pain, lost limbs, and death are common, and these accidents are often due to the negligence of other drivers. If you or a loved on were in a motorcycle accident, Mah Law Office can probably help if we can represent you in a lawsuit against the person responsible for the accident.
If you win such a lawsuit, the other party can be required to compensate you for medical bills, lost wages, funeral costs, and/or punitive damages. Typically, you can sue the other party involved in the accident if he or she ignored road signs, was under the influence of alcohol or drugs, drove recklessly, or was driving distracted, like being on the phone. We will represent you and we will help you gather evidence, file the right paperwork, and prepare for your day in court, where we’ll also be by your side throughout.
If you are injured on the job, it is important that you know, (a) your rights, and (b) the best ways to handle workmen’s compensation and personal injury claims. We’re talking about your health, your livelihood, and your employer, so every step must be handled well. For example, do NOT talk with insurance adjusters – they’re not on your side and just want to settle for a minimal amount. Also, workplace injury laws vary from state to state and city to city, so you want an experienced work accident lawyer, at the Mah Law Office.
We get it — it’s tough to even talk about pressuring an employer for your fair compensation. But they have legal responsibilities, and many workplace accidents occur due to negligence or lack of adequate safety equipment or procedures. If that’s the case, you need a partner capable of holding employers accountable in effective and appropriate ways. Because it’s not just about you. If you die in a work accident, your family is also entitled to seek compensation for medical and funeral expenses, lost income, and more. We look out for them, too.
Slip & Fall Accidents
Did you know that every year nearly 9 million people go to the emergency room due to slip-and-fall accidents? And many those people have family members who love them and depend on their ability to earn a living. In fact, over 25,000 people die as a result of injuries from slip-and-fall accidents every year, and even more suffer debilitating head, spinal, back, leg, and other injuries that lead to exorbitant medical expenses and costly time off from work.
From poorly-lit parking lots and crumbling walkways to wet floors with no warning signs and loose area rugs, slip-and-fall accidents are waiting to happen all around you. And insurance companies often blame victims so they can settle claims for far less than your injuries warrant. Contact us as soon as something happens to assure you don’t “settle” for less than you deserve.
