Personal Injury Law

Personal injury claims are made when a person is injured by another’s negligence or injured by products that are defective in some way.  Common types of personal injury cases include:
◾Automobile Accidents
◾Medical Malpractice
◾Slip and fall cases
◾Nursing home abuse
◾Birth Injuries
◾Dangerous or defective products (Product Liability)
◾Injuries at work (Workers’ Compensation)
◾and many others

Injuries suffered as a result of these types of accidents can be severe and life altering.  When someone is determined to be legally responsible for injuring someone else, they are liable for the injury, and may be made to pay the injured person compensatory and sometimes even punitive damages.  At Mertes & Mertes, P.C., we have many years of experience in investigating and handling personal injury claims on behalf of the injured.

We represent the injured.  We relentlessly pursue justice for the pain, suffering, income loss and anguish that our clients suffer from the negligence of another.  In personal injury claims, time is of the essence.  If you or a loved one has been injured by another’s negligence, call us today at 815.626.1500.
