In times of need, we will advocate for you in seeking justice, accountability, and fair compensation for the harm and suffering caused by another.
Personal injuries include every type of injury or harm to a person’s body or mind, as opposed to damages to property. A personal injury claim is a legal action taken by an individual who has suffered physical or psychological harm as a result of someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing.
The purpose of a Personal Injury Claim is to seek compensation for damages such as:
Wrongful death claims are usually brought by close relatives against those who can be held liable for their loved one’s death. In wrongful death cases, survivors are compensated for the emotional suffering and financial losses they’ve suffered for losing a loved one.
The purpose of a wrongful death claim is to seek justice and accountability and compensation for the following:
Knowles Law Firm litigates personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits to seek justice and accountability and positive change within society. The firm has advocated for victims in the following areas of personal injury and wrongful death:
Consumer and patient safety is too often compromised by defective drugs and devices resulting in life-altering injuries. We have advocated for victims of medical drugs and devices and constantly investigate new claims of faulty medical drugs and devices that may cause personal injury or wrongful death. An example of the firm’s prior advocacy involved allegations that a hip implant was defective and caused cobalt poisoning to an individual.
When a person trusts the care of themselves or their loved one to a physician, one expects that they will receive proper medical care. Unfortunately, physician negligence may rise to the level of medical malpractice, resulting in personal injury or wrongful death. We represent patients and their family members in several cases against medical providers. An example of the firm’s prior advocacy involved allegations that a previously healthy individual died from the failure of his medical providers to properly diagnose a pulmonary embolism.
The elderly are one of the most vulnerable members of society and require greater protection for their rights. When a person trusts the care of their loved ones to a nursing home, one expects that their loved one will be treated with respect and dignity. An example of the firm’s prior advocacy involved allegations that an elderly individual died from sepsis due to bedsores as a result of the neglect and abuse endured at a national nursing home facility.
Consumer and worker safety is too often put at risk by many factors, such as negligence, poor manufacturing, inadequate quality, product recalls, or inadequate warnings or labels on a wide range of products, causing long-term damage or serious accidents, that may cause not only personal injury but also result in wrongful death. An example of the firm’s prior advocacy involved allegations of a common daily-use household product manufactured by a global company that injured an individual. As a result, the individual was awarded compensation and the company agreed to place a warning label on the product.
Vehicle crashes occur regularly due to the negligence of others. The firm has been involved with numerous claims and lawsuits involving serious and catastrophic injuries and wrongful death resulting from vehicle collisions. An example of the firm’s prior advocacy involved allegations that a driver of a vehicle on a beach flipped his vehicle on top of a young couple’s tent resulting in the unfortunate death of both individuals.
Victims of car crashes are often not aware that a defective part of a vehicle may have contributed to, enhanced, or caused the crash or made their injuries worse. The firm has been involved with the Takata exploding airbag litigation.
Trucking crashes occur regularly due to the negligence of truck drivers. Truck drivers are regulated under not only state laws but also federal laws that require strict compliance. An example of the firm’s prior advocacy involved allegations that a tractor-trailer driver collided with an individual operating his vehicle, causing serious injuries.
Employers are required under both federal and state law to provide safe working conditions for employees. Often, employees are unfortunately exposed to unsafe working conditions that result in personal injury or wrongful death, due to their employer’s negligence.
Injuries involving dog bites and attacks cause not only injury but often also tremendous psychological impact resulting in PTSD. Medical and scientific literature support the causal relationship between PTSD and dog attacks. An example of the firm’s prior advocacy involved a claim of a Rottweiler dog attacking a mother, her 4-year-old daughter, and their small dog while walking through their neighborhood.
Sexual abuses are among the most hideous conduct. Oftentimes, organizations or entities facilitate or conceal sexual abuse of victims within their confines, such as churches or other religious facilities, daycares, and schools. Knowles Law Firm ferociously advocates for victims of sexual abuse against the perpetrators and any organization or entities involved. An example of the firm’s prior advocacy involved allegations that several minors were sexually assaulted and abused by an employee of the school system.
Children are one of the most vulnerable members of society and require greater protection for their rights. When a person trusts the care of their children to a facility or supervision of others, one expects that their children will be cared for with a heightened sense of caution. Additionally, consumers place an implied trust in manufacturers that products and devices sold and marketed to children are safe. Unfortunately, this is not always the situation. The firm is presently investigating the dangers of cell phone radiation and children. For more information about cell phone radiation, please read the firm’s page dedicated to this danger.
If you or a loved one suffered an injury or wrongful death, we can assist you in this time of need to seek justice and hold the responsible parties accountable.
Knowles Law Firm, PC will advocate for your rights.
