Personal Injury

Don’t let your injury defeat you.

Your first consultation is always free.

We represent people who have been injured by another person’s negligence or unreasonable behavior. When this happens, the effects can be catastrophic both physically and economically. If you’re in this situation, you need an experienced, aggressive attorney who can take a stand on your behalf against the corporations and insurance companies involved. Let us be your voice.

Auto Mobile Accidents

It doesn’t matter if it’s a simple fender bender or a head-on accident with very serious injuries. If you or someone you love has suffered a personal injury as a result of an auto accident and need a lawyer, contact us for powerful representation.

You’ll get a thorough investigation of the accident and an aggressive legal representation of your claim. We’ve successfully represented hundreds of accident victims with a variety of injuries:

  • Back injuries
  • Brain injuries
  • Burns
  • Dashboard knee
  • Head injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Neck injuries
  • Scarring

The first meeting is on us.

Semi-Truck Accidents

Over the years, we’ve represented many people who were seriously injured in collisions caused by drivers of commercial box trucks and other large trucks.

Needless to say, these accidents can cause serious injuries to the occupants of passenger vehicles, with many resulting in death. If you or a loved one has suffered personal injury or death as a result of a semi-truck accident, count on Alvine Weidenaar, LLP, for proven legal experience.

We’ll dig deep to find contributing factors to the accident including safety regulation violations, hazardous material transport, driver hours of operation, and vehicle maintenance and inspection requirements. When careless, intoxicated, drugged, or sleep-deprived drivers hurt people, we get tough on your behalf. And we will fight to have your benefits paid in full.

Motorcycle Claims

The sheer size, speed, maneuverability, and visibility of motorcycles make them vulnerable to accidents. All too often, the motorcyclist is held liable for the incident even though they were not at fault. It helps to have a lawyer who rides. An experienced motorcycle personal injury lawyer recognizes the unique circumstances found in these kinds of cases so the injured victim receives just and fair compensation. Let us help.

Dog Bite Injuries

One of the most common injury cases we see involves violent attacks by dogs or other pets on innocent victims. If this happens to you, we’re dedicated to making sure you’re justly compensated for your injury, which can range from minor skin punctures to long-term, permanent injuries or disfigurement.

In dog or animal bite cases, here are the issues we’ll address:

  • Ownership of the animal
  • Where the attack occurred
  • Premises liability and insurance issues
  • Nature and extent of the injuries
  • Extent and impact of scarring
  • Emotional trauma

If someone in your family suffers an animal bite injury, you need the experience of an established law firm with proven experience. We’ve successfully handled cases like this all the way from settlement through victory in the Supreme Court.

Head, Neck, and Back Injuries

A spinal cord injury is one of the most life-altering events a person can experience. After such an injury, a victim may never be able to work, sit, stand, or walk without pain. Worse yet, a victim may not even be able to move below the point where the injury occurred.

Traumatic brain injuries (TBI) can also be very serious. Severe head trauma could result from a construction injury, auto accident, or concussion. It can lead to lifelong physical and mental impairment, or even death.

At our firm, we have the medical and legal knowledge needed to maximize your claim should you ever be in this unfortunate situation. We’ll help you through the legal and emotional consequences of your injury and will make sure you get what you deserve.

Drunk Drivers

Drunk drivers kill and injure innocent people and their actions often devastate families. We’ll evaluate the facts and help you and your family recover money for damages for injuries caused by intoxicated drivers. If you or someone you know has experienced such a loss, give us a call for a free initial consultation.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Premises liability action (also known as ‘Slip and Fall’) is a claim brought against a negligent property owner—private or commercial. These types of cases can be complicated because you’re required to show that it was the owner’s negligence that caused your injury. We’ll provide a complete assessment of your case and handle the details with the landowner or their insurance carrier.

Unsafe & Defective Products

There are laws to protect consumers from unsafe or defective products. In these cases, the manufacturer or other responsible party may be held accountable for any injuries caused by the unsafe product. We have experience helping injured persons and their families receive just and appropriate compensation from these responsible parties.

Wrongful Death

When someone is killed as a result of the negligence or wrongful conduct of another person or business, the victim’s surviving family members may be entitled to compensation. One call to Alvine Weidenaar LLP will put the wheels of justice in motion.
