What types of personal injury claims does McMenamin & McMenamin, PS handle?

Different types of accidents require a different approach to collecting evidence and assessing damages. At McMenamin & McMenamin, PS, we assist clients who have sustained injuries in several types of accidents.

Car Accidents

Drivers who drive drowsy, distracted, aggressively, or drunk are often the cause of serious or fatal crashes. After an accident, not only do you have to worry about repairing or replacing your vehicle – you also have to contend with paying your medical bills while losing income from being out of work. Our personal injury attorneys can help you file your claim with the other driver’s insurance company and fight for the compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists have a bad reputation when it comes to involvement in traffic crashes. Unfortunately, many safe and responsible riders suffer severe or fatal injuries in accidents caused by negligent drivers who do not look for nearby motorcyclists before turning or changing lanes. The McMenamin & McMenamin, PS team knows how to gather the right evidence to prove who was really at fault in your motorcycle crash.

Wrongful Death

Any accident can turn into a tragedy when an injured party loses their life. Whether your loved one was killed instantly or later succumbed to injuries from the accident, you have a right to seek damages on his behalf. There is a lot more to seek than just medical expenses, and working with an attorney will help you maximize the damages to which you are entitled.

Construction Site Accidents

Construction work is among the most dangerous work in America. When workers’ compensation is not enough to cover your injuries and losses, a construction site injury claim may be necessary. We help you determine the right parties to name in a claim or suit to receive compensation for lost wages, medical expenses, and more.

Product Liability

We trust that manufacturers test the products we purchase and that those products will free from defects and dangerous components. Sadly, that is not always the case. ­If a company’s design flaw or negligent manufacturing processes result in a serious injury or death, the victims have a right to compensation. Filing a claim against a major manufacturer is a difficult task, but McMenamin & McMenamin, PS is up to the challenge.

Slip/Trip and Fall 

Icy sidewalks, uncleaned spills, broken staircases – these are just a few of the everyday hazards that could lead to a serious head or spinal injury in a slip or trip and fall accident. When you sustain injuries on another’s property you have the right to pursue a premises liability case. McMenamin & McMenamin, PS identifies the responsible property owner or maintenance company and seeks a fair settlement for your damages.

Dog Bites

A dog of any breed has the capacity to attack. No matter what the dog’s background and temperament, if it attacked you or your child and caused serious damages, you have the right to file a claim against the owner. Our attorneys help you locate the owner, file the claim, and calculate the long-term damages a dog bite can create.
