Practice Areas & Legal Services
Car accidents and other motor vehicle related accidents are the most common personal injury cases in Portsmouth. Auto accidents are usually caused by distracted or inattentive drivers who may be texting & driving, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, or other forms of negligence.
Bicycling has increased considerably in the last few years, not only as a hobby or exercise but as a means of transportation to get to and from work, school, etc. With the increase in cyclists, comes an increase in accidents caused by negligent car and truck drivers.
Pedestrian accidents may be caused by a negligent driver who is distracted driving, under the influence of drugs or alcohol, not paying attention when taking a left or right turn, failure to yield, and during inclement weather. It’s also not uncommon to have a pedestrian accident where a person was injured by a falling object, potholes, or hazardous materials on the premises.
Dog bite cases can be physically and emotionally scarring. If you were attacked by someone else’s dog and have had physical injury, you may be able to recover monetary damages for your medical bills, scarring & disfigurement, plastic surgery, lost wages, pain & suffering and other losses related to your injury.
Bed Bug Bite
While Virginia laws do not specifically mention bed bugs, the state does hold property owners accountable in following building codes that affect the health and safety of residents. Whether you are renting a home that is infested with bed bugs or stayed at a hotel and suffered bed bug bites that have caused you injury, you could be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
Slip and fall accidents are not uncommon and can very well be caused by someone else’s carelessness. Usually called premises liability cases, these cases require proof that 1) a dangerous condition existed on the property; 2) the owner/occupier knew or should have known of the condition; and 3) the owner/occupier did not fix the dangerous condition or warn others about it.
Long Term Disability
Similar to Social Security Disability cases, long term disability cases can be complex and extremely frustrating for people to handle without legal representation. Long Term Disability (LTD) is a disability insurance policy that is offered by an employer or individually purchased. This coverage will usually protect you for 1-2 years, if you are unable to work at your own occupation.
To qualify for Social Security Disability, and you do not have LTD insurance coverage, you must have a disability that is expected to prevent you from working for at least 1 year. Also, you must have worked in jobs that are covered by Social Security and have a medical condition that meets Social Security’s definition of disability: “Your condition must significantly limit your ability to do basic work-related activities, such as lifting, standing, walking, sitting, or remembering – for at least 12 months.” Get more information about qualifying for Social Security Disability here.
