Assistance With Personal Injury Cases in Lockport

At Fotopoulos Law Office, we represent accident victims and their families in many types of personal injury cases in Lockport and the surrounding areas, including cases involving:

  • Car accidents - Car wrecks are one of the most common causes of personal injuries. They can occur as a result of various factors, such as negligent driving, speeding, distracted driving, drunk driving, or failure to follow traffic rules. Injuries sustained in car accidents can range from minor cuts and bruises to severe injuries like broken bones, spinal cord damage, or traumatic brain injuries.
  • Slip and fall - These types of accidents occur when someone slips or trips on someone else's property due to hazardous conditions (wet floors without warning signs, uneven surfaces, potholes, inadequate lighting, or poorly maintained staircases). These accidents often lead to injuries such as fractures, sprains and strains, head injuries (including concussions), and back and spinal cord injuries.
  • Medical malpractice - Medical malpractice refers to situations where healthcare professionals fail to provide competent medical treatment resulting in harm or injury. Examples include misdiagnosis, delayed diagnosis leading to worsening conditions, and treatment complications. Medical malpractice claims may also include surgical errors, birth injuries caused by medical negligence during childbirth, medication errors, anesthesia mistakes, and failure to obtain patient consent before performing treatments or procedures with significant risks involved.
  • Product liability - If a product is defective or dangerous, it can cause serious injuries to consumers. Product liability cases may involve design defects, manufacturing defects, or failures to provide adequate warnings and instructions. Such cases can arise from various products such as faulty vehicles, defective medical devices, dangerous prescriptions, and over-the-counter medications.
  • Wrongful death - When someone dies due to the negligence or wrongful actions of another person or company, their surviving family members may have grounds for a wrongful death lawsuit. These lawsuits seek compensation for the emotional and financial losses experienced by the deceased person's loved ones.
  • Truck wrecks - Truck accidents are some of the most devastating and catastrophic events that can occur on our roadways. Due to their size and weight, trucks have the potential to cause significant damage and serious injuries when involved in collisions. If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, it is essential to seek legal help as soon as possible to protect your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.
  • Nursing home abuse and neglect - Nursing home abuse can take various forms – physical, emotional, sexual, or financial. These abuses not only cause physical harm but also inflict significant emotional distress on vulnerable residents. If you suspect that your loved one has been a victim of abuse or neglect in a nursing home facility, it's imperative to take swift action.
