Catastrophic Injuries are devastating and permanent in nature. Whether they are caused by car accidents, work-related accidents, medical errors, defective products, prescription drug reactions or other dangerous conditions, they have an enormous impact on the lives of the victims and their families.

Examples of catastrophic injuries include brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, accidental amputations and neurological disorders.

Catastrophically injured people require specialized medical care- often for the rest of their lives- but unfortunately, determining who is responsible is usually difficult, and often, there are several parties whose conduct played a role in the injury. Even when fault is known, the insurance coverage is often inadequate to provide compensation for medical care, much less make up for the lack of wages that a catastrophically injured person needs to live. Therefore it often becomes necessary to seek alternative compensation. These types of cases are complex, lengthy and costly to take to trial, and large jury verdicts are rare. Often the victim is under-compensated, with the compensation falling well short of funds needed to adequately pay for required medical care.

Because of this, success in court can literally mean the difference between life and death. The lawyers and Robert Vitale and Associates has the experience to successfully help victims seek justice. If you or a loved one has been catastrophically injured, contact us. We are here to answer your questions, explain your rights and help you pursue justice.

Negligence can be caused by motor vehicle accidents, serious dog bite injuries, motorcycle accidents, nursing home abuse, defective equipment accidents, construction accidents, slip and fall accidents and medical negligence, including harmful drugs.

Every year in Michigan hundreds of innocent people, mostly children, are seriously injured due to dog bite injuries. Many dog breeds are capable of causing serious injury and even death. Sixty percent of all dog bite victims are children.

Dog owners are required by law to control or restrain their dogs in order to ensure public safety. Dog owners may be held accountable for injuries sustained by their animals if the animal was not properly secured on their premises, on a leash, or the owner knew that the animal was prone to violence. Even if the dog was on the owner’s property, the owner of the dog may be responsible for any injury caused.

The lawyers at Robert Vitale and Associates are experienced in handling these serious injury and wrongful death cases.

Medical malpractice is the failure of medical professionals (including doctors, nurses and hospitals) to provide acceptable treatments to patients. It is the third leading cause of death in America, killing 100,000 people every year.

Some leading causes of medical malpractice include inadequate training, excessive work hours, substance abuse and errors in judgment by hospitals and medical professionals.

Patients have the right to expect safe and adequate care when seeking medical treatment, and while most doctors and hospitals never commit malpractice, others make an astonishing number of medical mistakes. Five percent of doctors and hospital staff account for more than 50 percent of the medical malpractice claims.

If you suspect that you were a victim of medical negligence, contact us. These cases require significant resources and special expertise. You need to move quickly to protect your legal rights and to ensure that your claim is within the statute of limitations.

When you’ve been hurt on another person’s property, it can be unclear who is responsible for the injuries you’ve suffered and who should pay the medical expenses you’ve incurred.

At Robert Vitale and Associates we know that after an accident, you have a lot of questions, and our slip and fall attorneys are here to answer them for you.

In general terms, “slip and fall” accidents refer to situations where a person is injured by slipping or tripping and then falling due to a dangerous condition on the premises. Such falls can happen inside or outside a building, and be caused by such conditions as bad flooring, wet floors, poorly lighted steps, or, in the case of outdoor accidents, weather-related or hidden hazards. For instance, an icy patch outside a door or a crack or pothole can be the cause of a slip and fall in a parking lot.

All slip and fall accidents are covered by negligence law and deal with the concept of premises liability. Property owners have a duty of care to see that their property is safe. This includes ensuring that the building has no structural defects that could cause an accident, both inside and out, including loose floor mats, rugs, or tiles; water on the floor; badly lit stairs or steps; and cracks or holes in sidewalks or parking lots. In some states, the property owner may also have a duty to reduce problem areas caused by weather like standing water and icy spots. A plaintiff or claimant also has a duty to exercise reasonable care, so if any action of yours contributed to the accident, you may share in the negligence.

If you experience a slip and fall accident, you should try to determine what made you fall and if it could have been anticipated and prevented. If there were any witnesses to your fall, be sure you get their names and addresses. Try to note the conditions in the area, like if the lighting was poor or if there was some substance that made you slip. If you did slip because of something on the floor, try to obtain a sample. Also, try to get pictures of the area. Report any such accident to the manager or owner and insist that they make a record of it.
