We Hold Negligent Parties Accountable

Injuries cause greater issues than just physical pain. While your pain may be significant, you are also likely experiencing the inconvenience of not being able to work and simultaneously being responsible for medical bills and other costs. If your injury was the result of another person’s negligence, you’re probably also grappling with feelings of confusion, anger, and uncertainty, and the questions that accompany these emotions. Who is responsible for your injuries? Can they be held accountable for their fault? How can you pay for the resulting damages?

At E. Stewart Jones Hacker Murphy, our attorneys are available to answer your questions and support you during this time. We will guide you through the complexities of your case and help you navigate the legal system to make sure you are cared for.

Personal Injury Cases

Personal injury litigation can focus on any incident in which one person was harmed because of another person or group’s negligence, malice, or wrongdoing. Injuries can range from minor issues to severe debilitating injuries that cause permanent disability and impact the rest of a victim’s life.

Your personal injury case may involve situations such as:

  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • ATV accidents
  • Bus accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Construction accidents
  • Dog bites
  • Food borne illness
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Premises liability
  • Product liability
  • Train accidents

Additionally, we handle cases involving wrongful death. Wrongful death claims proceed similarly to personal injury claims but are handled by the personal representative of the victim’s estate, rather than the victim themselves. We can assist you with recovering compensation for funeral expenses, other costs, and non-economic damages if your loved one was killed because of someone else’s negligence.

  • What is the difference between criminal procedure and civil procedure?
    When a crime has been committed, action is taken by a government agency against the person, persons, organization or other entity that violated the law. The first purpose of a criminal prosecution is punishment, which frequently consists of a fine or jail time. In a civil matter, the dispute is between two or more individuals or entities. The first purpose of a civil prosecution is obtaining compensation for the wronged person or entity. Settlement in a civil matter is generally an award of a money judgment. A criminal sentence is not imposed in a civil matter.
