A personal injury can happen at any point in time. Your life may suddenly veer sharply from where it was, your entire future changed by an event that took seconds to happen. Or it may be affected by a mistake or defect in a treatment or product that was supposed to be safe or helpful.
At Bergeron Clifford LLP, we have seen all kinds of accidents and injuries. We treat each case as unique, but we have come to know what kinds of injuries are caused by each type of incident, and what kinds of challenges each may cause during your rehabilitation and lawsuit.
Tell Us What Happened
Our lawyers work with a number of different causes of harm, including:
- Motor vehicles: Whether caused by cars, trucks, commercial vehicles, motorcycles or public transportation, most of our cases have to do with motor vehicles. Different kinds of accidents have different challenges, especially if they involve drunk or distracted drivers. Pedestrians and bicyclists are especially vulnerable to damage.
- Snowmobiles, ATVs and RTVs: These accidents have special characteristics related to the type of vehicle used, and the location of the accident.
- Slip-and-fall: Any accident caused by unsafe conditions on someone else's property can be referred to as a slip-and-fall or a premises liability case, though not all involve actual slips and falls.
- Medical malpractice: We deal with surgical errors, pharmacy errors and birth injuries, as well as any case in which medical professionals or institutions provide negligent care.
- Defective products and services: If you are injured by a product or service, we can help you find the responsible party, whether your injury was caused by a vehicle, toy, clothing, electronic appliance or negligent service.
- Sports and recreation: Some injury may be inevitable in some activities. If your injury is due to negligence or carelessness by coaches, instructors, organizers or equipment manufacturers, you deserve compensation.
- Animals: If you are injured by someone else's pet due to his or her lack of control over the animal or the premises, you can claim damages.
We can also help the families of injured children, whether their injury happens on playgrounds, schools, sports arenas, at the doctor's or in motor vehicle accidents, and families whose loved ones have been fatally injured.
