Personal Injury

In a case of personal injury, one person has been seriously injured through the wrongdoing or negligence of another person or party. Such cases might involve an auto accident caused by a distracted driver, a house fire caused by a defective appliance, or a debilitating work injury caused by an employer’s improper maintenance of safety standards. Personal injury cases usually involve claims for physical, emotional, and financial hardship caused by the accident. If you or someone you love has been injured, our auto accident, defective product, and workers compensation lawyers can help you obtain fair compensation for your pain.

Automobile Accidents

car accidentAutomobile accidents are one of the primary causes of debilitating injury and fatality today. Sadly, many of these accidents are caused by the negligent actions of other drivers and cannot be avoided. When an aggressive vehicle driver or negligent bus, ship, or airplane operator causes a serious accident, victims and their families often suffer immense pain and financial distress.

Jacobs & Crumplar handles all types of transportation injuries involving autos, airplanes, ships, and recreational vehicles. Our auto accident lawyers have extensive experience in areas such as vehicle rollover accidents and can help you obtain the results you deserve. If you or a loved one has been injured, contact the auto accident lawyers at Jacobs & Crumplar today.

Vehicle Rollovers

Vehicle rollovers are far more likely to produce serious injury or death than any other type of auto accident. And of all the vehicles, SUVs are the most likely to roll. Their high centers of gravity makes them vulnerable to flipping when steered in abrupt maneuvers or sharp turns—such as when a driver tries to avoid an accident. To make matters worse, many popular SUVs on the roads today lack important safety features, such as a roll bar, to prevent roof crush from causing debilitating injury. As a consequence, traumatic brain injury is one of the most common injuries resulting from rollover accidents.

If you or someone in your family has been hurt or killed in a vehicle rollover accident, our auto accident lawyers can evaluate whether faulty vehicle design may have been at fault for the accident. If manufacturer defect was at fault, or contributed to the injuries, we can help your family achieve just financial compensation. Contact the auto accident lawyers at Jacobs & Crumplar today for further information.

Product Liability

product liabiltyAmerica’s product liability laws are a powerful warning to corporate wrongdoers that they cannot market and sell products that injure or kill consumers and expect to get away with it. Examples of dangerous and defective products abound. One need only look at a recent list of vehicle, drug, and household product recalls – such as baby toys, kitchen appliances, and gardening tools – to understand that this is a nationwide problem and tragedy.

Jacobs & Crumplar is committed to holding negligent manufacturers accountable for their actions. Our defective product lawyers take on industrial, agricultural, and consumer product manufacturers, obtaining just compensation for the injured. If you have been hurt by a product, contact our defective product lawyers today for a free review of your case.

Asbestos & Mesothelioma

Asbestos, once common in building materials, is now known to be extremely dangerous when inhaled in dust form. Workers and others exposed to asbestos fibers during construction or demolition are at risk of developing serious, lung-related disease. These can include asbestosis, lung cancer, colon cancer, and mesothelioma, a rare but deadly form of lung cancer almost exclusively linked to asbestos exposure.

Jacobs & Crumplar has years of experience in asbestos and mesothelioma litigation and has won multi-million dollar settlements for clients in these areas. If you or someone you love has become seriously ill as a result of asbestos exposure, our asbestos attorneys can help. Contact Jacobs & Crumplar for a free review of your case or go the asbestos and mesothelioma section of our website for further information.

Toxic Substances

toxic substancesExposure to toxic substances such as mold, lead, arsenic, or dangerous chemicals can have severe health consequences, both immediate and long-term. A single, massive exposure to a dangerous chemical, for example, can cause acute symptoms or sudden death, while continual, low-grade exposure to a toxic substance could mean many years’ delay before disease or disability becomes apparent. The attorneys at Jacobs & Crumplar handle numerous types of chemical injury cases, toxic torts, and toxic substance litigation. If you have a toxic substance case you would like to discuss with one of our lawyers, please contact our personal injury practice today.
