A Personal Injury Lawsuit Can Protect Victims' Rights
A shocking number of patients are injured or killed each year as a result of mistakes made by doctors, nurses, and other medical personnel.

If you or a loved one have suffered this type of injury or loss, you can help right the wrong with an experienced personal injury attorney. We are experts in civil law and medical malpractice, and we aggressively pursue compensation on behalf of victims.
From toys to appliances to automobile components, the products that enhance our lives are expected to be safe and reliable. Unfortunately, many accidents and deaths are caused by faulty products due to poor design, shoddy manufacturing, and other forms of negligence. Product liability is a complex component of personal injury law, since it is important to trace the source of an injury to all parties who may be at fault. Foley Law Firm has the expertise and resources to tackle the most challenging cases, and will leave no stone unturned to find justice in your case.
Motor Vehicle Accidents
Accidents on the road are the most frequent cause of personal injury and death, and often involve negligence or recklessness. Foley Law Firm has effectively represented thousands of victims of car, truck, bus, and motorcycle accidents. If you are involved in a collision caused by another driver, you are entitled to monetary compensation for injuries and losses. Dealing with insurance companies on your own is stressful, and you may not receive the full compensation you and your family deserve.
A construction site is known to be a danger zone for workers. Accidents can be caused by equipment and machinery, falls from heights, weather conditions, toxic materials, and other factors. It is important for a construction job site to be well supervised and properly equipped, and for the employees to be adequately trained. A serious or fatal injury caused by employer negligence justifies a call to an experienced personal injury attorney.
Premises Liability/Slip and Fall Accidents
Accidents can certainly be due to our own carelessness, but sometimes negligence is to blame. Premises liability law says it is the duty of the owner (or operator) of a store, public venue, or private home to take reasonable steps to prevent injury accidents. This means eliminating known hazards and providing warnings to visitors and invitees. Slip and falls and other common accidents can result in traumatic brain and spinal injuries or even loss of life. If you have been the victim of an accident that may involve premises liability, Foley Law Firm can help.
Insurance Bad Faith
Sometimes an insurance company does not fulfill its contractual obligations to pay claims, or makes attempts to avoid paying in full. This effort to contain corporate costs at the expense of innocent victims can result in a "bad faith" lawsuit against the insurer. Actions taken to delay or attempt to deny payment cause undue stress, which can have a detrimental effect on people dealing with injury or illness. At Foley Law Firm, we are eager to defend victims of corporate greed by taking on insurance companies.
Types of Injuries
Foley Law Firm has represented thousands of plaintiffs through the years and seen every possible type of injury. Some injuries are caused by careless accidents and others by willful wrongdoing. Common injuries that are the subject of civil lawsuits include severe back and spinal cord injuries, which may involve some degree of paralysis, and head trauma that results in brain injury. Other injuries include loss of limbs, burns, poisoning, near drowning or asphyxiation, sexual assault, gunshot wounds, and dog bites.
