DUI Car Wrecks, Falls, Dog Bites, and Accidents
Car Accidents: Severe injuries and property damage are common when car accidents occur. Although you may be scared, worried, and suffering tremendous pain, it is important to seek professional legal counsel as soon as possible. Our firm will help ensure that you are able to receive compensation for your losses.
DUI Wrecks: Wrecks involving drivers under the influence tend to result in more severe and catastrophic injuries, including brain damage, amputations, and,unfortunately, death. Property damage also tends to be excessive, as the impaired driver may not make any attempt to take evasive action. If you suspect that your personal injuries or property damage were caused by an impaired driver, contact us immediately.
Slip and Fall: If you are recovering from a slip and fall accident due to the negligence or carelessness of another, you are likely missing time from work for medical treatments and physical therapy. You may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses. Slip and fall cases can be complex. Contact our firm to find out whether you have a case.
Dog Bites: Dog and animal bites have the potential to completely devastate your life. From exorbitant medical bills for emergency treatment to reconstructive surgery and counseling, the costs and emotional damage add up fast. While many dog owners vehemently attempt to deny prior knowledge of the propensity of certain breeds or types of dogs to bite, numerous studies repeatedly indicate that Labrador retrievers, Pit Bulls, German Shepherds, Dobermans, Akita, Rottweilers, and Chows are known to exhibit aggressive tendencies toward “strangers.” Responsible pet ownership mandates that owners be aware of the dangers that their pet may pose and take steps, such as using a leash, muzzle, etc., to avoid liability for negligence.
Workplace Injuries and Construction Accidents: You spend a significant amount of time at your workplace and your employer is responsible to provide you with a safe environment in which to work. Regardless of the nature of your work, common sense measures must be taken to prevent avoidable accidents. If you have suffered electrocution, repetitive motion injuries, injury by a falling object, a slip, trip, or fall, overexertion, or other injuries that have caused a loss and/or are likely to result in additional damages, contact us.
Professional Negligence, Malpractice, and Wrongful Death Lawsuit
Professional Negligence: If a professional service provider has breached his or her duty of care below the standards accepted by others in the same profession (doctors, product manufacturers, lawyers, consultants, etc.), you may be able to recover damages for your losses as a result of negligence. Legal and financial penalties may be involved, depending on the specifics of the case. Many factors apply and these types of cases can be extremely complex. If you believe that you have been victimized by professional negligence or malpractice, contact our law office right away to schedule a consultation.
Wrongful Death: Has your loved one died as a result of the negligence or misconduct of another? Whether the liable party intended to cause the harm or not, he or she may still be found responsible. Regardless of the outcome of any criminal charges, you can and should pursue a wrongful death lawsuit to cover emotional damages and pecuniary injuries suffered as a result of the decedent’s death.
Attorneys Tom and Chuck Steele will determine liability, as well as what type of injury you have suffered and how it will affect your life in the future, as the anticipated duration of the injury has a significant effect on the value of your claim. We will also seek recovery for all financial losses that you have incurred and are likely to suffer as a result of the accident. Medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering are only some of the economic recoveries that we will pursue on your behalf.
Injured by Toxic Chemicals or Drugs? We Prove the Cause of Your Illness

We are recognized leaders in the dynamic field of toxic tort law and work on behalf of individuals who have suffered losses from toxic material exposure. We access state-of-the-art methods to conclusively prove the cause of your illness or medical condition.
Brain & Organ Damage, Mesothelioma, Silicosis, and Lung Cancer Liability
While many attorneys choose to settle toxic tort claims outside of the judicial system, our dedicated team of trial lawyers are prepared to take your case directly to court to ensure that you receive the most favorable outcome from the liable party. Serious and catastrophic injuries such as Mesothelioma, Silicosis, Poisoning, Brain Damage, Lung Cancer, Organ Damage, Birth Injuries, and Leukemia have been directly linked to acute and chronic exposure to a wide variety of toxic materials.
