Our Areas of Service
The Eichholz Law Firm, P.C. offers professional legal counsel in several different practice areas. With that said, our three main practice areas of focus are: Personal injury, workers compensation, and car accidents.
Personal injury is defined as a physical or psychological injury that a person contracts as a result of another person or entity’s actions. More often than not, personal injuries are the result of an individual’s negligence. Personal injury is often categorized into three areas which help determine the type of injury, the cause of the injury, and who should be held responsible. Those three areas are:
- Physical Injury- Happens when a person(s) becomes physically hurt as a result of an incident.
- Property Damage- Happens when a damage is inflicted on a person’s personal or commercial property as a result of an incident. One example would be a person’s garage being damaged due to the impact of a vehicle.
- Emotional and Psychological Trauma- Happens when a person is directly involved in or witnesses a damaging disaster or traumatic experience.
Workers compensation can be defined as financial coverage granted to employees to make up for any lost wages or medical expenses. Workers compensation benefits employees who may have lost some or all of their wages due to an illness or injury contracted at their place of work. As mentioned prior, workers compensation, in many cases, also covers some to all of an employee’s medical expenses. However, workers compensation and injury laws vary by state and you should check your employer’s benefits for specific details concerning coverage. With that said, many workers are able to receive compensation for their injuries, which may even include treatment and recovery costs. A few common injuries that may occur at the workplace include: Sprains, fractures, falls, back and neck injuries, carpal tunnel syndrome, electrocutions, heart attacks, and more. A few key workers compensation benefits include: Disability, medical coverage, rehabilitation, death, and more.
Car accidents are, sadly, a common occurrence and can happen at anytime. There are even car accidents that simply can’t be avoided and are more than likely the cause of another driver’s carelessness. Car accidents occur for numerous reasons, however, a few specific reasons that result in auto collisions include: Reckless driving, speeding, texting and driving, hit and runs, drunk driving, and more. When a car accident occurs and results in significant damage, generally both parties must contact their insurance companies. With a lot at stake and for your own protection, you should consider consulting a car accident lawyer to be properly compensated. A car accident lawyer will be able to handle the at-fault driver’s insurance company appropriately. Typically, the at-fault driver’s insurance company will try to reduce or prevent any amount of compensation you may be rightfully entitled to. In this case, a car accident lawyer can help you pursue legal action when a lawsuit is needed.
