Count on Chanfrau & Chanfrau When You Need a Personal Injury Lawyer

Stages of a Lawsuit

If you have a potential personal injury lawsuit, it is important to avoid speaking with insurance companies before consulting an attorney. Insurance companies want to settle your claim for as little money as possible, and do not have your best interests in mind. Chanfrau & Chanfrau will investigate the merits of your case before filing a civil complaint on your behalf. We take clients on a contingency fee basis, so if we represent you, we expect to win. We work aggressively in discovery, researching, and gathering evidence with the goal of settling the case or obtaining a trial verdict to provide full compensation for your losses. We are plaintiff's advocates, with an impressive record of settlements and verdicts.

Construction Accidents

There is a high rate of injury in the construction industry, and an on-the-job accident can sometimes result in substantial or even permanent loss of wages for a construction worker. If negligence or faulty equipment contributes to an incident that harms you, a personal injury lawsuit can help provide for your family and hold the right party responsible. Construction zone accidents can be caused by defective tools or machinery, inadequate safety precautions, toxic exposure, or the careless action of a foreman or coworker. Chanfrau & Chanfrau's attorneys offer years of personal injury law experience, and will fight for the compensation you deserve.

Child Injuries

When children are harmed because of the carelessness or wrongdoing of another, it is especially troubling. Child injuries and fatalities are most commonly caused by automobile accidents, bike accidents, and drownings, particularly in private pools. A child can also be harmed by a defective product, commonly a toy or playground equipment. In some tragic cases, a child is the victim of abuse. The compassionate attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau are experienced in personal injury, product liability, and premises liability law. We are dedicated to helping families heal and rebuild with compensation for injuries of all kinds.

Wrongful Death

There is no way to put a price on the loss of a beloved family member, and facing an accidental death is especially difficult. The attorneys at our law firm understand how stressful this situation can be. Over the years, we have helped numerous families with wrongful death cases and although the financial compensation cannot bring a loved one back, it can help with expenses, practical losses, and rebuilding. A civil suit also serves to punish negligent or reckless wrongdoing. Any immediate family member can pursue a wrongful death claim, but it must be within two years of a loved one's passing.

Shaken Baby Syndrome

Statistics from the National Center on Shaken Baby Syndrome show that nearly 1,400 babies are treated for shaken baby syndrome (SBS) each year, and 25-30% percent die from their injuries. Many more babies will experience lifelong complications as a result of being violently shaken by a caregiver or parent, including traumatic brain injury with developmental disabilities. This form of child abuse is a crime, and should be criminally prosecuted as well as pursued in a civil complaint. The attorneys at Chanfrau & Chanfrau vehemently seek justice in this type of case, and offer a free consultation and contingency fee policy.

Sexual Child Abuse

Our firm has handled dozens of cases of sexual child abuse, pursuing caregivers, family members, and serial predators - anyone who has physically and emotionally damaged a child with this devastating form of abuse. This type of personal injury is difficult to treat, and the effects can be long-lasting. Financial compensation may not right the wrong, but can be helpful to begin healing for the child and family. Because civil law procedure allows for broader access and discovery than criminal law, we have successfully pursued civil lawsuits in cases that law enforcement declined to prosecute for "lack of evidence." We seek justice at no cost to you, offering contingency fees for personal injury clients.

Nursing Home Negligence

State and federal laws mandate certain standards of care for the elderly residents of nursing homes. Unfortunately, these laws are violated everyday, and instead of compassionate, professional care, many nursing home patients suffer abuse and neglect at the hands of their caregivers. This abuse can be physical, mental, or even sexual, and family members may not be aware it is going on. Signs of abuse include weight loss, paranoia, crying or mood swings, repeated infections, and skin lesions or bed sores. The statute of limitations for civil action is two years from the date of admittance. If you suspect a loved one is the victim of nursing home abuse, contact Chanfrau & Chanfrau as soon as possible.

Medical Malpractice

We trust doctors, hospital personnel, and pharmacists with our health and the health of our families, but in some cases, the actions of these professionals result in serious harm. An alarming number of injuries and deaths that occur in a hospital setting can be attributed to doctor and hospital staff error. Common medical malpractice lawsuits involve birth injuries, pharmaceutical error, surgical errors, and medical misdiagnosis. If you or a loved one was injured or died as a result of the negligent practice of a healthcare professional, you may have grounds to file a medical malpractice case.
