Our Practice Areas

There are many ways in which an accident can occur. Here is a list of some of the areas of personal injury law that we have particular experience in assisting our clients:

Wrongful Death

Losing a loved one unexpectedly brings grief as well as complexity to the lives of family members left behind. Unfortunately, the process of holding the at-fault party accountable for the wrongful death of your loved one is complex as well. The experienced attorneys at Hughey Law Firm can guide you through that process.

Catastrophic Injuries

Certain injuries can result in a lifetime of medical care and expenses, and take away the victim’s ability not only to work at the job he or she formerly held, but to be gainfully employed at all. If you or a loved one has suffered catastrophic injuries in an accident caused by someone else, you deserve an injury lawyer who will fight for you to get the necessary compensation to provide the care and necessities you need for life.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall and trip and fall accidents are among the most common premises liability claims. These types of accidents can result in serious injuries. If you have been injured due to an unsafe condition at a residential, commercial, or public property, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim.

Product Liability

Consumers have the right to expect that the products, medications, and food that they have purchased are safe to use. If you’ve been injured due to a defective product, you may have a valid product liability claim.

Worker’s Compensation

If you have been injured in a workplace accident, you have the right to file a worker’s compensation claim in order to get compensation for your injuries, including medical treatments and lost wages. We are happy to answer questions and provide guidance in your decision to file a claim. Additionally, if your workplace accident was caused by the recklessness or carelessness of an individual, you may be able to seek damages from the at-fault party who should also be held liable.

Nursing Home Injuries

If your loved one has been mistreated, abused, or neglected by the staff at a nursing facility, we will fight to hold these facilities accountable for their actions, not only for your loved one’s sake but for the sake of preventing others from being injured by the same negligent actions.
