Cedar Rapids Personal Injury Lawyers
Every American has a right to a reasonable expectation of safety as they go about their public and private lives. This right is protected by a legal obligation, shared by each of us, to act in a manner that does not put others at risk of accident or injury. Referred to in legal terms as a ‘duty of care,’ this obligation can take many forms, and those who violate it can be held to certain standards depending on the actions undertaken and the specific regulations that apply.
When an individual or entity fails in their duty of care, they are guilty of negligence and can be held liable for any injuries sustained by other parties as a result. Regrettably, an enormous number of injuries sustained in the United States each day are the result of negligent and reckless actions putting innocent individuals in harm’s way, and personal injury law is in place specifically to protect the rights and interests of these individuals. Through this protection, victims of accidents caused by others may be able to obtain much-needed financial restitution and justice.
Our Practice Areas
Injuries and accidents can take almost any form, but those affected can usually take action when the injuries are caused by someone else’s negligence. At the Pete Leehey Law Firm, P.C., our legal team is committed to helping all victims of personal injury protect their rights and work to help those struggling with the following:
- Personal Injury
- Workers’ Compensation
- Automobile Accidents
- Truck Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Railroad and Train Accidents
- Product Liability
After suffering the losses and harm that such incidents as these can cause, you and your loved ones are likely in need of financial assistance, something which a legal professional can possibly help you obtain through legal avenues.
If the negligence of another party has led to an accident or injury to yourself or a loved one, you have every right to seek out full and fair compensation for your medical expenses and any other losses associated with the incident. However, most individuals seeking out compensation for their losses after an accident are facing significant unexpected costs and have little money available to spend up front on legal services. At the Pete Leehey Law Firm, P.C., our attorneys believe in our work and are focused on the needs of the clients, which is why we offer contingent fee structures for our clients, which means that clients don’t have to pay us unless we are able to help them obtain compensation. Call (319) 294-4424 today to find out how we can help you fight for compensation.
