Auto/Truck Accidents – When you are involved in an auto accident you need to speak to an attorney, immediately. The insurance companies have highly trained adjusters who work for the insurance company and are only concerned with their side. Regardless of how big or small speak with an attorney.

Bicycles – In the past years riding has really been growing. Along with the growth, accidents have increased. It may be surprising to some how serious a “simple” bike accident can be, head injuries are major concern.
Fraud and Misrepresentation/Contracts – Many people will not see this as the typical personal injury case. But, people are often seriously damaged by the actions of a company committing fraud or not being “fair.” Insurance companies may try to avoid paying a claim made after a storm or medical/hospitalization coverage denied for a covered illness. Credit card companies, financial business and banks may wrongfully charge or over charge a fee for a service or supposed late payment. These can all cause great losses/cost (damages) to people.
Premises Liability, Slip and Fall Accidents – These injuries and resulting claims can occur on private property or commercial/business property. Accidents occurring at some businesses have specific laws that apply.
Workers Compensation – These laws that cover worker’s comp are very specific and may not be favorable to a worker injured at work. But, the only remedy an employee has against his employer, if injured at work is worker’s comp. Be sure to file your accident/injury report and contact the Law Offices of Tony Morrow for guidance.
