Workplace accidents happen, even if you work in a safe environment. You can become injured when boxes or shelving fall on you, you walking on a slippery floor or tripping over an obstacle that should not have been there. These are common issues in almost any work setting. Even if you spend your hours in an office cubical, you can suffer an injury when you trip and fall. Those who work in construction or similar jobs are even more at risk. Every day you work on and around heavy machinery, scaffolding and power tools. Safety guidelines are extremely important and should be adhered to at all times in this type of job. Even one mishap can cost an employee dearly through a construction accident or fall from a scaffold in a scaffold accident or a similar fall from a ladder in a ladder accident. Railroad workers are also at risk for a train accident. This career also puts the employee close to heavy machinery and moving parts that can pose a serious risk, one that is well known by our team.

If you or someone you know has been injured in a car accident, you may be eligible to go after those responsible. In many cases, one driver is at fault for the accident. For example, Stephen Bilkis and Associates has handled many cases involving large trucks. These are often driven for many miles on tight schedules. A fatigued driver can fall asleep and cause a serious accident. In this case, the driver’s employers may be at fault. On the other hand, the truck’s mechanical parts may be faulty and lead to an accident, which the responsible party is the company which supplied the parts. Every case is unique and should be reviewed by our attorneys to determine the best course of action.

One of the last places anyone expects to be hurt is at the hospital or doctor’s office. The sad reality is that medical malpractice happens quite frequently. Many patients go in hoping to be healed and wind up with severe and/or permanent health conditions due to a doctor’s error, nursing mistake, surgical error or hospital malpractice.

Birth-related injuries are another concern for patients. An expectant mother puts her safety and that of her unborn child in the hands of hospital staff. When a doctor or nurse is negligent or makes a poor choice that is not in line with the best intentions for their patient, serious complications can arise. If you suspect you or your baby were harmed due to the actions of hospital staff or otherwise suffered a birth injury, it is important that you seek legal guidance.

If someone else’s poor choices or negligence brought on your hardships, you deserve to be compensated.
