Automobile accident injury
As with other types of accidents, figuring out who is at fault in a traffic accident is a matter of deciding who was careless — or “negligent” in legalese. In many cases, your instincts will tell you that a driver, cyclist or pedestrian acted carelessly. We will help you determine if actual rules were violated and merit a case. More auto injury advice >
If you have suffered an injury or illness due to careless, unprofessional or incompetent treatment at the hands of a doctor, nurse, hospital, clinic, laboratory or other medical provider, both the medical questions and the legal rules involved are complex. They almost certainly require that you hire a lawyer experienced in medical malpractice cases. William F. McMurry can guide you. More medical malpractice advice >
What is legal malpractice? A lawyer commits malpractice when he or she fails to provide quality legal services to a client. If the lawyer, through an error or omission, fails to provide services that meet the minimum standard of care of a licensed attorney, then the lawyer has committed malpractice. Just because you received a “bad” result from your former lawyer does not necessarily mean that the lawyer has committed malpractice. You may have received the “best” result possible under the circumstances of your particular matter. We will help you establish if your case meets the requirements for legal malpractice.
