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.
I do not think I can find enough proper words to accurately convey my eternal gratitude for all your hard work, kindness and understanding during my daughters workers’ compensation case. “Thank You” seems like it is not enough to convey my respect and appreciation I have for you. Thanks for having such a great staff, which shows why you all are the best.

Al is a very professional and helpful attorney. I have never dealt with another disability attorney however, after hearing the nightmares of some of my friends who have filed and been denied, I rate him #1 as an attorney and new friend. Al was aware of my needs and was always there for us during the filing process. We were impressed with Al’s memory when it came to our case as well as the government requirements and the filing process. When it was time to go before the judge, he was very professional and knowledgeable of my case.
