UNSAFE PROPERTY (PREMISES LIABILITY)
Over $25 Million Recovered
Premises liability is a legal concept in personal injury cases where a preventable injury is caused by an unsafe or defective condition of another’s property. This especially includes where you work and places you are invited to do business - for example, retail and grocery stores, malls and restaurants. Typical premises liability cases include slip/trip and falls, but can also include any other type of injury caused by an unsafe aspect of a property. It is important to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to preserve all evidence, including surveillance footage, that may be important when pursuing your case.
DANGEROUS & DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS
Over $50 Million Recovered
You expect that manufacturers and sellers ensure that their products are tested and safe. Unfortunately, many companies take shortcuts in the design and manufacture process of products released into the stream of commerce. And as a result, people can suffer catastrophic injuries, even from a product they never purchased. These companies can be held liable for their defective and unreasonably dangerous products that injure and kill. But obtaining fair compensation in products liability cases can be challenging – you need a skilled attorney to lead a team of liability and medical experts to prove your case. The Oakes Firm has successfully resolved many products liability lawsuits across the nation. It is important that you reach out to us as soon as possible to preserve all evidence, including the product in question.
Over $75 Million Recovered
Studies continue to show that construction workers face the risk of catastrophic injury and death far more than most. This is because the nature of the construction business can be chaotic, often involving heavy machinery and work performed high above the ground. And when cost-cutting measures are implemented at the expense of worker safety, the results can be devastating. Unfortunately, worker’s compensation benefits simply aren’t enough to make whole workers or their families. The Oakes Firm specializes in all types of workplace-related accidents. Call us now so we can work with OSHA to investigate your accident, and recover all available moneys you and your family deserve.
LIQUOR LIABILITY (DRAM SHOP ACT)
Over $12 million Recovered
The Dram Shop Act was specifically created to compensate victims injured by a person who was served alcohol while visibly intoxicated. Typically, a jury will apportion fault among all the defendants, but the average (intoxicated) person does not have adequate insurance or assets to pay for their actions. Informed by strong public policy, the legislature enacted the Dram Shop Act. It ensures that bars, restaurants, taverns or event hosts that overserved an already intoxicated person are held fully responsible for that person’s actions. If you have been injured by a drunk driver, call The Oakes Firm now – valuable evidence, such as surveillance footage and witnesses need to be identified and preserved as soon as possible.
