Wrongful death — A person who recklessly or negligently causes the death of another can be held accountable.  Any type of personal injury accident that is fatal can result in a wrongful death claim. Vehicle and construction accidents, negligence and defective products are among the many causes of accidental deaths.  Steven A. Hemmat has successfully handled wrongful death actions.

Damages in a wrongful death lawsuit often include:

  • Death and funeral expenses
  • Loss of consortium by the surviving spouse and children
  • Loss of future earnings
  • Medical bills
  • Physical pain and mental suffering

Vehicle accidents — Vehicle accidents can be caused by intentional or reckless conduct or negligence. Crashes can result in property damage, injury and death. Attorney Steven A. Hemmat pursues legal rights for accident victims.

Premises liability / Slip and Fall — Property owners and occupants can be liable for injuries caused by a variety of hazardous conditions, including uneven pavement, crumbling curbs, wet floors, icy walks, falling objects, inadequate security or defects in chairs or benches. They also are liable for injuries caused by dogs, cats and other pets. If you have been injured in a home, apartment, school, store, hospital or nursing home, call Steven A.

Products liability — Adults and children often are injured by design flaws and defects in goods, including cars and other auto industry products, construction materials, appliances, children’s toys, cribs, car seats, drugs and other consumer products.  Manufacturers are responsible for designing and manufacturing safe products, and they can be held liable when they fail to do so.
