Personal Injury Practice Areas

Serious injuries can result from a handful of different accident types. While we know that no two accidents are the same, the process of investigating accidents may be similar. At Larson & Gallivan Law, we have experience in the following personal injury practice areas:

  • Car Accidents Car accidents are a leading cause of injury and accidental death throughout the United States, and the same is true in Vermont. If you have been in a car accident, our law firm can help you to determine the cause of the crash and build a case for full compensation.
  • Pedestrian Accidents. Few accident types are more severe than a pedestrian accidents, as pedestrians have no protections to shield them from severe injuries.
  • Truck Accidents. Truck accidents, especially accidents involving semi-trucks and tractor-trailers, can be devastating. Our law firm will fight for your right for your full recovery amount.
  • Pedestrian Accidents. Like pedestrians, motorcyclists who are involved in a crash have few protections to prevent injuries, which means that damages may be severe and permanently life-altering.
  • Bicycle Accidents. Bicycling may be a fabulous way to commute and get exercise, but it can also be incredibly dangerous. If you’ve been in a bicycle crash, call our law firm to learn more about your options.
  • Premises Liability Cases If a person is injured on the property of another, they may be able to bring a premises liability case against the property owner. Examples of premises liability claims include dog bite cases, slip and fall cases, and drowning and near-drowning cases.
  • Medical Malpractice Your doctor owes you a high degree of care – if a doctor, hospital, or other medical care provider breaches this duty of care in treating you and you are harmed, you may be able to bring a medical malpractice suit for damages. Learn more by calling our law firm directly.
  • Products Liability Cases Finally, we also assist those who have been injured as the result of using dangerous products. If you have been harmed by using a product that was defectively designed or manufactured, we can help you to hold the appropriate party liable for your damages.
The Elements of a

Personal Injury Claim

Regardless of the type of accident in which you’ve been involved, if you believe that someone else was to blame for your accident, you may be able to hold them liable for the full value of the damages you’ve suffered, including your economic (medical expenses, lost wages, etc.) and noneconomic (pain, suffering, and emotional distress) damages. The elements of a personal injury claim are:

  • Breach Of Duty Of Care One of the trickier elements of a personal injury claim is proving that not only were you owed a duty of care, but the at-fault party breached the duty of care owed to you by doing something negligent. Negligence is the failure to act with the appropriate degree of care, and might include performing an illegal maneuver when driving, failing to maintain a property in a safe condition, and more depending on the context.

Act Before It’s Too Late

When you are injured due to the negligence of another party, it’s important that you seek medical care as soon as possible and then begin the claims process immediately. The earlier that you start the claims process, the sooner than an investigation into your case can commence. This can yield robust evidence that supports the elements of a personal injury claim described above.

In addition to ensuring that we have investigated the sources of evidence for your case, another reason to start the process early is so that you don’t breach the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is the legal limit on how much time you have to file a personal injury suit. In Vermont, there are various statutes of limitations, depending on the type of claim. For many injuries, that time limit is three years from the date of injury, as found in 12 Vermont Statutes Annotated (V.S.A.) Section 512. Call us and we will help you determine the statute of limitations applicable to your claim – even if you don’t hire us.
