Personal Injury

A personal injury is defined as any injury that results from the reckless, careless, or negligent actions of another.  Personal injury lawsuits are intended to provide compensation for your economic and emotional loss, and discourage future negligent action by others.

McElhatton Foley P.C. represents individuals who have been injured, physically or mentally, as a result of the negligence or intentional wrongdoing of another person, company or government agency.  An individual can sustain a personal injury at any time. The most common types of personal injuries result from traffic accidents, workplace accidents, slip and fall accidents, assaults, accidents in the home, and defective-products.

The goal of our personal injury lawyers is to promote the development of a safer society by seeking jury verdicts that take the profit out of negligent conduct and remove dangerous products from store shelves.  We practice law with the highest professional integrity and thoroughly investigate the merits of each case.  Our experience allows us to make forceful and effective presentations to insurance adjustors, opposing attorneys, and jurors.

Our attorneys have decades of experience litigating personal injury cases and are well equipped to enforce your rights and obtain the monetary compensation you deserve.  This may include compensation for your pain and suffering, financial losses, emotional distress, and medical expenses. In some cases, you may also be entitled to punitive damages for another party’s wrongdoing.
