Accidents can occur at any time and during any situation. The time it takes for an accident to happen may only take minutes, but the effects of a personal injury accident can last a lifetime. If you are a victim to one of these accidents, you may be entitled to receive compensation for injuries to your physical and mental well-being as well as any financial losses sustained as a result of the accident. To determine whether you or a loved one is eligible for compensation following an accident in which injuries were sustained, contact the lawyers with Pursiano Barry Bruce Demetriades Simon LLP.

The basis of a personal injury claim is negligence, which is comprised of evidence, details, and state laws. Following an injury, the party to which the claim is filed against will require a detailed record of events and a record of your injuries before the claim can proceed to negotiation. Substantial proof is required which details when and where the accident took place; how the accident occurred; how the injury or injuries occurred; and the resulting effects of the injury or injuries to the injured party’s life.
Our civil law attorneys will work diligently to prove all of the elements required for a successful personal injury claims case, which includes proving that the victim was owed a duty of care; the victim was harmed by a breach of this duty; there is substantial evidence to support the causation between the breach of this duty and the harm inflicted; and the victim suffered damages — such as physical harm, emotional harm, psychological harm, and/or financial loss — as a result of the negligent conduct.
Our law firm is comprised of skilled personal injury attorneys with years of experience managing, negotiating, and litigating a number of different types of personal injury claims cases, including claims for motor vehicle accidents, premises liability claims, work accident claims, medical malpractice claims, and wrongful death claims.
Personal injury due to motor vehicle accidents can be caused by the negligence or recklessness of another driver and may include accidents involving pedestrians, cars, motorcycles, trucks, and other types of motor vehicles. Discuss your claim with our civil litigators today.
Premises liability claims regard injuries sustained while on another individual’s property. This type of personal injury claim includes people who become injured due to a slip-and-fall accident, dangerous conditions or criminal activity which occurs within or around the property.
In some situations, individuals may be able to file a personal injury claim for accidents that occur while working and/or within his or her place of employment. For example, a work accident claim may be filed if a contractor or another third party caused the injury to occur.
Medical malpractice occurs when any medical care provider or medical care entity — such as a hospital — fails to provide the adequate standard of care for an injury, a disorder or a disease, which results in harm to the patient, either with or without the intention to harm the patient.
Wrongful death occurs when any personal injury accident results in the untimely death of an individual. If a loved one died due to an accident, an act of negligence or the wrongful conduct of another individual, we can help you through the process of pursuing a wrongful death claim.
