Areas of Practice

Personal Injury Law   

At the Thurman Law Firm, we pride ourselves on providing quality client service and legal representation for accident victims.  Our personal injury lawyers and staff welcome clients to bring questions and encourage inquiries about available legal options.  Personal injury is the area of tort law that covers any wrong or damage done to another in his or her person, property, rights, or reputation.  A personal injury can happen at your place of employment, in a car accident, because of a faulty product or repair, or a mistake during a medical procedure.  A personal injury is deemed actionable if it occurs as a result of negligence or unreasonably unsafe actions on the part of your landlord, employer, a manufacturer, or possibly even your doctor.

After suffering through a personal injury in an accident, life can become very difficult.  Physical injuries sustained can affect your ability to work, take care of your family, and ultimately the ability to pay your bills.  Adding the proverbial insult to injury, dealing with insurance companies and the legal system on your own can be discouraging, if not overwhelming.  Our superior client service ensures that injured parties get to the right doctors, which increases the chances of a full recovery and helps minimize any future sufferings.  As a part of our commitment to serve our clients, we apply the same level of dedication and tenacity when handling all types of injury-causing accidents resulting from negligent acts (including slip and fall accidents).  Often these claims are denied or vehemently contested by the insurance companies, but our personal injury lawyers have the experience, knowledge, and expertise needed to overcome the barriers to a settlement that the insurance companies normally place in front of accident plaintiffs.

We understand how difficult it is to be to be seriously injured or to have lost a loved one due to the negligence of others.  Although no one knows your personal suffering better than you, we endeavor to understand our clients’ specific injuries, outstanding medical costs, or employment wage loss associated with injuries so through settlement or decision we can offset the injustice in every way the law allows.  Our practice of law is personal when it comes to representing the legal interests of our clients and their families.  Our commitment allows an injured party to focus on getting well and getting back to their everyday lives, while our personal injury lawyers take care of their important legal rights and interests.

Examples of personal injury law cases include trespass, slander, wrongful death, or professional malpractice.  Other personal injury causes of action include, but are not limited to:

  • Auto accidents
  • Car accidents
  • Truck accidents
  • Tractor-trailer accidents
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Rail or train accidents
  • Bus or shuttle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Boat or water craft accidents
  • Bicycle accidents

  • Worker’s compensation claims

  • Wrongful death claims
  • Slip and fall injuries

  • Social security appeals
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain injury claims
  • Premise liability claims
  • Product liability claims
  • Construction liability
  • Dog bites or dog attacks
  • Drowning accidents
  • Animal attacks

Our primary objective is to win your case.  Because the facts of each legal matter differ, we will customize our approach to achieve the best possible outcome and resolution.  If you have suffered harm at the hands of others in an accident or negligence, we will fight for your rights. It will be your decision whether to accept a settlement or aggressively litigate your case.  A phone call puts you in contact with one of our attorneys who will handle all aspects of your case and will work diligently to help you get what you deserve.
