Call Our Trial Lawyers for Representation in Personal Injury & Employment Lawsuits
Whether you’ve been harmed by workplace discrimination or an automobile driver’s careless decisions, you may find yourself staring down bills you can’t pay, and you may experience significant emotional distress. You may be able to recover compensation by filing a lawsuit against the responsible parties. However, those in positions of power may not readily offer you the monetary remedies to which you’re entitled. It is crucial to retain an experienced trial firm to stand by your side and advocate for your best interests in all personal injury and employment lawsuits.
At Walton Law, we are results-oriented lawyers who work hard to make sure our clients receive the compensation to which they’re entitled. We have the resources to see cases all the way through trial on a contingency-fee basis. In other words, we will not recover our attorneys’ fees or costs unless we secure a settlement or verdict on your behalf. Our trial reputation and substantial experience ensure that a defendant’s legal team understands that we are unafraid to take your case to trial if you’re not offered an appropriate settlement for what you’ve lost.
Legal Representation for a Personal Injury Lawsuit
If you were injured in an accident caused by another, we may be able to recover damages by bringing a personal injury lawsuit. To recover damages, our attorneys will need to prove: (1) you were owed a duty of reasonable care by the defendant, (2) the defendant breached the duty to use reasonable care, (3) causation, and (4) actual damages. In a car accident case, for example, a defendant may breach the standard of care if he caused your injuries by weaving, speeding, drunk driving, failing to obey signs and signals, or tailgating.
A higher standard of care may exist by certain professionals such as doctors, but not every mistake made by a doctor constitutes medical malpractice. To establish liability, we’ll need to show you were harmed by a health care provider who owed you a professional standard of care that she did not follow, and, as a result, you were harmed. Our lawyers also represent nursing home residents harmed by caregivers’ abuse or neglect.
Employment Law Representation to Understand Your Options
Our firm handles employment discrimination, wage and hour, harassment, retaliation, wrongful termination, and cases involving family and medical leave. Your employer should abide by the many legal protections available to you under state and federal laws, and if it does not, we may be able to hold it accountable in court.
Workplace discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee adversely due to his or her membership in a protected class. Often these actions have difficult consequences for an employee’s career and wellness. It may be appropriate to pursue compensation if, for example, an employer denied you a promotion because of your sex or race.
Consult a Trustworthy Personal Injury & Employment Attorney
Our personal injury, nursing home neglect and employment lawyers understand you may be in a vulnerable position after you lose a job due to your identity or get injured due to someone else’s carelessness. Most people do not feel comfortable pursuing damages on their own, understanding that a more powerful position will have a robust legal team advocating on their behalf. You should be able to meet the other side on an equal playing field with your own seasoned attorney. We represent clients on a contingency fee basis and our payment depends on securing a settlement or verdict on your behalf. We can come to you, or meet virtually, if that’s preferable.
