Attorneys: John M. GonzalesGilbert J. Gradisar

We represent people who have been seriously injured.  If you or a family member are a victim of a personal injury accident or has died because of someone else’s negligence, we have the experience and skill to help. There is no charge for an initial consultation to review your case and recommend the best course of action. Our law firm normally takes personal injury cases on a contingent fee basis (no fee unless we recover money for you) in the following types of cases:

Personal Injury

Personal injury claims begin when a person is injured or killed by the careless or intentional acts of others. When a person causes another person’s injuries, the injured party is entitled to compensation for the fair and reasonable value of their injuries and damages.

Wrongful Death

‘Wrongful Death’ claims are deaths due to the fault of another person. Things like drunk driving deaths, death caused by a defective or a dangerous product, construction of an unsafe building, or failure to diagnose a fatal disease may be considered wrongful deaths.

Products Liability

Products liability is focused on dangerous and defective products which cause injury or death. We represent injury victims in cases against businesses who have sold or manufactured unsafe products to consumers.

Car and Truck Accidents

Drivers are responsible for their conduct each time they take the wheel. While we all understand that accidents happen, we represent clients if negligent and careless drivers kill or injure someone else.

Nursing Home Abuse and Negligence

Nursing home abuse and neglect is especially tragic because its victims are virtually helpless. These  lawsuits typically involve physical or chemical restraints, malnutrition or dehydration, choking, clogged breathing tubes, wandering, bed sores, pressure ulcers, unsupervised falls, physical or sexual abuse, assaults, burns and other personal injuries.

Why our experience makes a difference

The ability to get the most value for your case depends on several factors. These include the nature and extent of your injuries, the degree of fault of each party and the ability of the guilty party to pay for the damage they caused.

One other factor plays a big part in how your case will be evaluated – the experience and skill of your lawyer in a courtroom. Trial lawyers are a special breed of lawyer who can take negotiations to the next level and represent you in a courtroom or before a tribunal. Knowing that you are prepared for wherever the fight might lead ensures that your case is properly prepared from the beginning and all negotiations are taken seriously.

And when it is necessary to go to trial, we’re ready to present your case with the knowledge, skill and experience that few lawyers possess.  Among our lawyers, we have well over 100 years of trial experience to bring to bear on your case. That’s who you want on your side when your future is at stake.
