With an increase in products being rushed to market, it is reasonable to assume that more and more of them may pose the risk of serious injuries. In fact, the U.S. Product and Safety Commission says that approximately 29.5 million injuries and 22,000 deaths can be directly traced to defective products. We believe that, when this happens, victims deserve to be compensated for their resulting medical bills, pain and suffering, and lost wages. Product liability laws may find all parties involved in the manufacturing, distribution and retail of a product accountable. If you believe you are the victim in a product liability case, do not hesitate to contact the experienced premises liability attorneys at Wieland Hilado & DeLattre immediately.
Accidents can occur anywhere. In the event one occurs on a premise like a shopping center, grocery store, neighbor’s house etc., immediately report all accidents and do your very best to document the area where the fall or accident occurred via pictures. If you are injured at someone’s place of business or someone’s home, the owner of the property may be responsible for injuries, medical expenses and lost wages you incur. Premises liability cases can be very complex and difficult. Just because you are injured on someone’s property does not mean the owner is necessarily responsible. Negligence has to be established first, and, though a property owner may ultimately be responsible for your medical expenses and lost wages, the owner has no obligation to pay your expenses as they are incurred.
Remember to take photos immediately, using your cell phone if necessary. Acquiring good documentation at the time of the incident may be substantial to your legal claim. Contact our team of premise liability law experts to review your case today.
On September 29, 2015, a serious auto crash changed our lives forever. Injuries sustained by my husband and I resulted in a long hospital stay and several subsequent surgeries. Two years later, we are both still dealing with injury related issues. Within a few days of the crash, we asked a relative about getting an attorney and they recommended Tom DeLattre (Wieland Hilado & DeLattre). Tom returned my husband’s call that same day and arranged to meet with us at the hospital. He explained the process and assured us that he would handle the auto insurance companies. He explained that our job was to work on our recovery. He was always available for questions and would return calls on weekends and while on vacation. We are very happy with the fair settlement that Tom DeLattre worked out with the insurance companies. I would not hesitate to recommend him to friends or other family members.

I want to say, my world has changed and my family wants to thank you for all of your hard work on my personal injury case. I sometimes wonder, if I just stayed home that day and just went to help volunteer to teach kids play football that I would have my hand at full strength and wound’t be dealing with this personal injury. I can’t look back, but I can say that I am feeling stronger and healthier each day.
