Personal injury occurs when someone is physically or emotionally injured, or his or her personal property is damaged. Personal injury law allows the injured party to receive compensation for damages caused by someone else's negligence, recklessness, or intentional acts.

Medical Malpractice - We provide representation to persons injured or harmed by the negligence of health care providers or facilities, attorneys, accountants, stockbrokers and other professionals. Please see our medical malpractice page for more information.
Products Liability - A claim related to a defective product, or a product liability claim, can be brought against a manufacturer, supplier, distributor or seller of the product. We handle actions related to all types of defective products, including defective tools, dangerous medical devices, and unsafe machinery.
Wrongful Death - Wrongful death cases arise out of many different types of negligence, such as auto accidents, boating accidents, and any other personal injury accidents that unfortunately result in death.
Slip & Fall Accidents - Slip and fall injuries arise from accidents occurring in residential and commercial buildings. The general rule of law is that the owner or operator of the premises has a duty to keep the premises in reasonably safe condition, or at least warn customers of dangerous conditions which the owner or operator caused, knew about, or should have known about. For more information, please view our page on slip and fall accidents/premises liability.
Boating Accidents - Dangerous incidents can occur on a privately owned boat, a cruise ship, Jet Ski, or ferry. Injuries usually occur because of a reckless or negligent operator, or a boat malfunction. Engel & Engel provides experienced marine and boating accident representation.
Workers' Compensation - If you have sustained a work related injury, you may be able to file a workers' compensation claim for benefits. At Engel & Engel, we can help you determine if you have a workers' compensation claim and whether you are entitled to benefits. We will then help you obtain those benefits. For more information, please view our workers' compensation page for more information.
