Types of Personal Injury claims

Personal injury law covers a wide variety of injuries regarding any physical or emotional harm caused by the actions of another person, even unintentionally. Types of claims handled by Herbert Thornbury include:

  • Car accidents - By far the largest source of personal injury claims, a defendant may have failed to follow the rules, or he or she may have driven while distracted or under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Trucking accidents - Similar to car accidents, but typically with more severe injuries and more substantial legal proceedings.
  • Motorcycle accidents - Also considered separately from car accidents because motorcycle riders are especially vulnerable when struck by another car or truck.
  • Boating accidents - Often the result of operator error, intoxication, or improperly maintained equipment.
  • Slip and fall cases - A type of premises liability claim that arises when a property owner fails to keep his or her premises safe.
  • Nursing Home Abuse - Cases involving abused or neglected elders.

Mr. Thornbury also has extensive experience handling wrongful death claims. While no amount of money can ever compensate you for the loss of a loved one, we can recover damages to help you in your recovery.
