Automobile Accidents

Being in an accident is a traumatic event and CKC wants to do everything possible to assist you in your recovery. Although legal action is not the first step victims think of after a car accident occurs, the reality is that a lawyer is often required when dealing with any insurance company. Commonly, victims assume that the insurance company will completely cover their medical bills, etc., and this is simply not the case. There are many factors involved in determining the outcome of a car accident with injuries. Contact us and let the CKC team of skilled personal injury lawyers help you achieve a positive outcome.

Premises Liability

If you have been injured on someone else’s property as result of the negligence of a property owner, it is critical that you contact the CKC team so we may counsel you and advise you of your legal options. Many common cases include defective roofs, floors, railings or stairs; inadequate security; landlord negligence; falling debris; falling merchandise and other improperly maintained properties. If you have questions, contact us and let the caring professionals at CKC offer you exceptional legal service.

Slip and Fall

Slip and fall accidents are considered “fall down accidents,” and any injury arising from such an accident is considered a personal injury. A more accurate term to describe all of the accidents that result from falls on premises would be a premises liability claim. Slip and fall injuries can result from such problems as: water, rain, ice, snow, grease or other slippery substance on the walking surface, as well as abrupt changes in flooring, poor lighting, or a hidden hazard, such as a gap or hard to see hole in the ground. At CKC, we are here to help. We believe that we have the answers to most of your questions about Slip and Fall Injuries. Please feel free to contact us with your Slip and Fall Injuries case information, and let us give you the best legal service.

Trucking Accidents

Anyone can be a victim in an accident with a truck (semis, 18-wheeler, tractor). If you or a loved one has suffered injuries from the negligence and fault of someone else, contact us. CKC will stand with you to make sure your rights are protected. Unfortunately, in an effort to maximize profits, many trucking companies are taking short cuts when it comes to proper training, safety, and following the rules and the regulations. These shortcuts often lead to injuries of other motorists. According to the National Center for Statistics and Analysis, thousands of motorists are killed each year by trucks. Truck accidents in the United States take an enormous toll on many aspects of human life, including financial hardship, physical injuries or death, and emotional devastation. If you have been involved in an accident with a truck, CKC is here to protect you and to offer you exceptional and caring legal service. Contact us today.

Products Liability

Consumers use products throughout the course of their lives, at home, at work and otherwise, and have a reasonable expectation that these products are safe and not a threat to cause serious injury or death. When manufacturers and sellers fail to meet these basic expectations, they must compensate users for injuries caused by products that are defective or unreasonably dangerous. Defective Products can cause great injury and range from cars and trucks to children’s toys. Each year thousands of people are injured due to defective products. Fortunately, individuals or companies responsible for these injuries can be held accountable due to the product liability laws. If you or your loved one has been injured due to a defective product, you may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer or company selling the defective product. Contact us today. CKC has experienced attorneys that have the answers to most of your product liability questions.
