Our personal injury practice includes, but is not limited to, the following areas of personal injury representation:

Auto and Trucking Accidents: Auto accidents involving cars, trucks, buses, motorcycles, bicycles, and pedestrians can result in some of the most devastating injuries possible. You may have experienced significant property damage, astronomical medical expenses, permanent disability, and devastating physical and emotional suffering. First you need quality medical care. After that, however, you need to retain the services of an experienced personal injury attorney. You can trust David Downs to go to bat for you to put your life back together.

Medical Malpractice: When you seek medical care, you expect to get better, not worse. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Medical malpractice occurs when a health-care provider—such as a doctor, nurse practitioner, nurse, physical therapist, dentist, or a hospital—fails to use the degree of skill and judgment dictated by the circumstances. Instances of medical malpractice include negligent care, misdiagnosis, late diagnosis, improper treatment, and medication and prescription errors. If you have been injured by a health care professional, you need a skilled and experienced medical malpractice attorney.

Nursing Home Abuse: If you have a loved one who has been injured while spending time at a nursing home, you need an attorney who will fight for justice. David Downs is committed to protecting the rights of the elderly who have been injured by abuse at a long-term care facility.

Product Liability: If you have been injured by a dangerous or defective product, you need an attorney with the skill and experience needed to fight against powerful corporate interests. We provide comprehensive product liability representation for those that have been injured by any dangerous product, including asbestos, apparel, alcoholic beverages, firearms, food, machinery and tools, medical products and devices, cars, pharmaceuticals, and recreational equipment.

Premises Liability: Property owners are usually obligated to keep their property safe. If you have been injured as the result of dangerous or unsafe conditions on someone else’s property, we will fight to get the compensation you need to get your life back on track. Examples of premises liability claims include those that result from defective sidewalks or stairs, malfunctioning escalators or elevators, preventable attacks by animals, unsafe swimming pools, unsafe construction sites, dangerous floor conditions, snow and ice, inadequate security, and toxic substances, including exposure to dangerous chemicals, pesticides, or toxic mold.

Wrongful death: Sometimes negligent or wrongful actions result in a person’s tragic death, not just injury. Such accidents resulting in the death of a loved one of yours–your child, your parent, your husband or wife–are extremely difficult situations to deal with, emotionally and legally. If a loved one has died because of someone’s neglect, contact David Downs to find out how you can be compensated for such a loss.

We are committed to fighting for the rights of those who have been injured. You can trust in our 20+ years of experience to help make the system work for you so you may get your life back on track.
