Bodily Injuries


Birth Related

We resolve Birth Related Injuries. If a child has suffered a loss of oxygen during their birth, the temporary suffocation may cause serious brain injuries. Cerebral Palsy is just such an example. Cerebral Palsy is not a disease, but an injury caused during the birth of a child. Cerebral Palsy is a medical mistake. The effects of such a mistake may take a few years to become apparent. If you have any fears or concerns that a child may have suffered a medical mistake, contact Art Liebling immediately. We will be glad to discuss with you any questions you may have about any birth related injuries. In most cases these injuries are irreversible. The most common forms of debilitating birth injury are shoulder dystocia, brachial plexus palsy, Erb’s palsy, and Klumpke’s palsy. These are generally caused by doctor error during the birthing process and result in nerve damage and reduced motor function of the arm. Another common birth injury, prenatal asphyxia, can result in brain damage. If your child has suffered a birth injury due to the negligence of a doctor or medical provider, your child deserves compensation. Your child needs help for the long-term care and rehabilitation your child needs, as well as the disability and loss of the enjoyment of life. If you have a question, call Art Liebling today.

Brain Injuries

We resolve Brain Injury cases. Brain injuries are often caused by a sudden blow to the head or a violent shaking of the head, which causes the brain to move inside the skull, and cause microscopic tearing of the axons. Traumatic brain injuries cause serious problems such as cognitive, behavioral, communication, or sensory processing problems. In more serious cases, a traumatic brain injury can result in a stupor, vegetative state, coma, or death. Some mild traumatic brain injuries occur without the victim even losing consciousness. If you or a loved one has suffered a brain injury due to the negligence or wrongdoing of another party you may want to call Art Liebling to discuss your case. We have handled numerous brain injury cases, and have proven them in trial. The signs and symptoms of a traumatic brain injury can range from mild to severe depending on the seriousness of the injury. Headaches, confusion, blurry vision, fatigue, dizziness, and difficulties with memory or concentration are all characteristics of mild traumatic brain injury. Moderate or severe cases of traumatic brain injury include all the same symptoms in addition to vomiting, nausea, seizures, slurred speech, unconsciousness, loss of coordination, agitation and difficulty swallowing.

Burn Injury

We resolve Burn Injury cases. Burns are avoidable! If you or someone you know has been a victim of a serious burn, you need to know your rights. Call Art Liebling to discuss what happened. The pain associated with a burn, as well as the lifetime of scarring and the medical treatment and disability are all complex issues that require an experienced attorney who can protect your rights. Whether the burn is from chemicals, electrical, radiation, inhalation of gases, scalding, or any other source, having an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer on your side is important to protect your rights.

Construction Accidents

We resolve Construction Accidents. Construction is a dangerous job. One small mistake can be deadly in a construction site. Whether the accident happened just because you were passing by a construction site, or it happened while you were working at one, we can help you. We understand construction safety guidelines and OSHA regulations. We understand how to find the party responsible for your accident and hold them accountable for their actions. We handle accidents such as bulldozer, crane and heavy equipment accidents, falling objects and building collapse.

Drowning

We resolve Drowning cases. Drowning is the leading cause of all accidental deaths among small children (one to four years of age) and the second leading cause among all children from one to 14 years of age, following only motor vehicle accidents. Drownings can occur in a number of places, including public and private swimming pools, recreational waterways such as lakes and ponds, spas, hot tubs and even in bathtubs. In non-fatal cases, with brain damage generally resulting after four minutes of submersion, an estimated 20 percent of victims suffer severe, permanent brain injuries. Fault plays a part in many drownings and near-drowning cases, whether the cause is lack of supervision or a problem with the premises. If you or someone you known died or suffered serious injury as the result of a drowning incident please call Art Liebling to learn your rights.

Pedestrian Accidents

We resolve Pedestrian Accidents. Getting outside and walking is great for everyone, except for the victim of a pedestrian accident. Sadly, when there is an accident between a car and a person, the person may have catastrophic injuries. Again, there are special laws which are designed to help protect pedestrians rights. If you or someone you know has been injured, and you would like to know your rights, please call us at (727) 796-1700 and ask to speak with Art Liebling.

Paralysis

We resolve Paralysis cases. Paralysis injuries can occur from a number of causes including trauma, such as a fall or car accident, which damages the spinal cord, and they can also be caused by pharmaceutical drugs, or food poisoning such as botulism. Other possible causes could be medical malpractice. If you or a loved one has suffered paralysis from an injury accident due to someone else’s negligence, please contact Art Liebling about your concerns.

Spinal Injuries

We resolve Spinal Injuries. Your spine is one of the most sensitive areas of your body. A simple fall can lead to a herniated disc, which is a serious injury that can stay with you for your whole life. We are dedicated to helping people seek compensation for spinal injuries and paralysis, including traumatic brain injury.

Sexual Assault and Rape

We resolve Sexual Assault and Rape cases. Just a few years ago rape, molestation, and exploitation of women and young people went largely unreported and uncompensated. We are proud to help victims fight back by bringing a law suit for you and your family for the devastating loss caused by these malicious attacks. We bring suit against predators and enablers who carelessly hire, train, supervise and retain these dangerous employees, or bring suit against the business that allows a dangerous environment to exist where a sexual assault can occur.

Slip & Fall and Trip & Fall

We resolve Slip & Fall and Trip & Fall cases. If you have suffered a fall due to an unsafe floor, stairs, or some other condition, there are a few things you can do to protect yourself. First, find out what caused you to fall. Was there some slippery item on the floor? Can you tell if it had been on the floor for a long time? If it looks all tracked around, dirty, or a large puddle, then it may have been on the floor for such a long time that an employee, or manager of the store should have known about the danger and had it cleaned up. Proving fault in a slip and fall or trip and fall accident is often hard because usually the victim is embarrassed, nervous, wants to get up, and hopes they are not injured, so they are quick to walk away without taking the time to really look and see why they fell. If you fall, take your time, collect your thoughts, and if you are hurt, try to collect some evidence, such as eyewitness names, or try to notice any signs that the spill may have been there a long time. Make sure a manager knows about the fall, and then seek good medical attention for your injuries. It is important to call an experienced lawyer who can explain your rights to you.

Toxic Exposure

We resolve Toxic Exposure cases. Today, we are overwhelmed with news reports of people getting sick and dying from exposure to toxic chemicals, mold and fumes. Food, drugs and our home and work environments have been found to contain toxic materials that cause serious injuries.
