Personal Injury Claims—Injuries sustained due to the negligence of another are, unfortunately, all too common. One moment you are driving home on a Friday evening, thinking about the upcoming weekend, and the next a negligent driver hits you, leaving you seriously injured, possibly unable to work, and dealing with the damages to your vehicle. Or, perhaps you are at your local grocery store, when you slip in a spilled substance, falling and causing significant injury to yourself. There are many other instances when you could end up severely injured, through no fault of your own.
If your injuries prevent you from working, you not only face mounting medical expenses, you may also be unable to pay your normal monthly expenses. Such a situation can leave you in despair, unsure of where to turn or what to do. Scott MacMullan can help you through such a situation, helping you get the medical attention you need, as well as an equitable settlement for your injuries, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Some of the more common types of personal injury claims include:
- Auto Accidents
- Slip and Fall Accidents
- Wrongful Death
- Workers’ Compensation
Traffic Cases—Far too many people receive a traffic citation, and either throw it into a drawer and forget about it or decide just to write a check, put it in the mail and be done with it. When you forget a traffic citation, you could end up being held in contempt of court, even having a warrant for your arrest put out. When you pay a traffic citation, you have effectively pled guilty to the offense and may receive points on your driving record. Since those points can add up much more quickly than you might imagine, you could then find yourself facing the loss of your driving privileges.
Or, perhaps your traffic issue is much more serious—you have been charged with a DUI or DWI, eluding or fleeing, or driving on a suspended license. Anyone of these charges is extremely serious and can lead to the loss of your driving privileges, significant fines, and even jail time. You never want to leave such an issue to chance. Having a strong legal advocate fighting for you can truly make a huge difference in the eventual outcome to anything from a minor traffic infraction to a more serious traffic issue. You would never want to end up behind bars for a DUI or DWI, driving with a suspended license or fleeing or eluding the police. Scott MacMullan can help you through these difficulties. Scott MacMullan can help you determine the way to proceed for any of the following issues:
- Driving on a Suspended License
- Fleeing and Eluding
- DUI and DWI
- MVA Points Hearings
