Personal Injury

A personal injury can cause damage to physical and emotional health, impact your earning potential, place a strain on your personal life and lead to costly future medical care. Our law firm specializes in helping clients obtain compensation for these and countless other damages they have suffered at the hands of another's negligence. Our firm has experience with all types of personal injury cases, including:

Motor Vehicle Accidents

If you have been injured in a car accident, you need experienced representation on your side to ensure that you receive just compensation from the parties responsible. Injuries suffered during an automobile accident can have devastating impacts on all aspects of your life. Without competent legal representation, insurance companies will do anything in their power to avoid compensating you for these injuries. At DR Patti & Associates, we can help you recover maximum compensation for the damage caused to your vehicle, you or your loved one's necessary medical treatment, the pain and suffering your injuries are causing, your lost wages, and for the impact your injuries have on your quality of life. No matter how severe the accident, our team of personal injury attorneys can help you to get the medical care you need and assist you in achieving the best possible outcome for your case.

You do not have to go through this difficult time alone. Give us a call, and let our experience work for you.

Throughout the years our office has represented thousands of people injured in automobile accidents. Taking personal care of all our clients, we have amassed a solid settlement and verdict history. Not only have we settled hundreds of cases for six and seven figure amounts, but we have received dozens of jury verdicts in that range as well. In fact, our office has never lost a jury verdict wherein the matter in controversy exceeded $500,000.00.

Medical Malpractice

Medical professionals, health care providers, and even hospitals are capable of making mistakes that adversely affect your health. Despite extensive training and the vast innovations in health care, medical providers can be negligent in administering care. You are entitled to file medical malpractice lawsuits when you have suffered an injury or illness due to physician or medical personnel negligence.

Injuries sustained from medical malpractice can be debilitating. The injury itself may severely diminish your quality and enjoyment of life. It can also create further medical expenses, lost wages, and impact your ability to earn money throughout your lifetime.

You may have been a victim of medical malpractice if you received delayed treatment for your condition, if you were misdiagnosed, if you discharged from care to soon, your medical provider failed to refer you to a specialist, or they used faulty equipment in treating you.

Determining if you have been a victim of medical malpractice can be very difficult. Our medical malpractice attorneys are committed to insuring you were treated with the level of professionalism we expect from our medical providers. We will investigate your claim of medical malpractice to get you the compensation you deserve.

If you believe you or a love one has been a victim medical malpractice, contact DR Patti & Associates and let our experienced team help you through this difficult time.

Workers' Compensation

Workers' compensation is a form of industrial insurance that provides wage replacement and medical benefits to employees that have been injured at work, or suffer from occupational illnesses.

The settlement value exceeded $30 million. This matter epitomizes the work our attorneys can perform when needed. We litigated against nine other law firms, over 500 attorneys strong, during a 3 year period.

Product Liability

Unfortunately, due to defects in manufacturing or design, these products can pose a threat to you or your loved ones. A product may also cause injury by failing to provide a sufficient safety warning. Product manufacturers and retailers are held legally responsible to you for the injuries their products cause. If you have been injured as the result of a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation. At DR Patti & Associates, we will work with you to insure you receive the compensation you deserve.
