Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is when doctors, nurses, hospitals, or other healthcare professionals injure a patient by providing care that is below the acceptable standard of the medical community. While administering treatment, healthcare professionals have a duty to patients to act within the acceptable standards of the medical community. When this duty is breached, healthcare professionals can be held legally liable for the injuries that result to their patients. Healthcare professionals can be held liable for medical malpractice when errors occur in the emergency room, when a professional fails to properly diagnose patients, when a professional fails to administer the correct treatment, and in many other instances. If you believe you were injured as a result of poor healthcare treatment, contact the medical malpractice attorneys of Abbott Law Group today.

Car Accidents

Car accidents have the potential to be one of the most stressful experiences that people have to deal with in their lives. When injury or death results from a car accident, the harmed parties not only have to cope with the emotional burdens, but also the financial expenses that arise, including medical bills, lost wages due to missed work, vehicle and other property repairs, and even funeral expenses for lost loved ones. The car accident attorneys of Abbott Law Group have the legal expertise to ease the emotional and financial burdens one experiences by holding the responsible parties accountable for their misconduct.

Truck Accidents

Motor vehicle accidents involving trucks have a much higher risk of injury and death to the occupants of vehicles involved. Additionally, the injuries can be much more catastrophic due to the sheer size of the vehicle and the intensity of the impacts that they can produce. If you were involved in a truck accident and were injured as a result or lost a love one as a result of a truck accident, contact the truck accident attorneys of Abbott Law Group for a free case evaluation.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are exceedingly common as motorcycles are harder for other vehicles to spot due to their small size and often times travel at high speeds. In addition, motorcycles offer a lot less protection for their operators than cars do, so injuries that are sustained as a result of motorcycle accidents are often much worse and also much more likely to result in death. The attorneys of Abbott Law Group frequently handle cases in which a person has been injured or killed as a result of a motorcycle accident, and would like to discuss your legal options with you today if you lost a loved one in a motorcycle accident.

This evidence is known as electronically stored information, or ESI. The Abbott Law Group offers electronic discovery co-counseling to attorneys in significant Federal and State court litigation for both pre-litigation as well as post-commencement counseling. Our services include working with our network of highly qualified technical liaisons and computer forensics experts.

Jury Selection

Voir dire is the process in the American legal system by which prospective jurors from the venire, also known as the jury pool, are questioned about their backgrounds, experiences, and opinions on subjects that may relate to the case. The questioning is meant to uncover any potential biases the prospective jurors may have, and enable attorneys to select, or reject, them based on their responses. With over 160 juries picked, F. Catfish Abbott, founding partner of Abbott Law Group, is considered an authority on voir dire and offers consulting services on all matters relating to voir dire.

Brain Injury

If you, or a loved one, have suffered a brain injury as a result of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit to recover compensation. Brain injury lawsuits are typically based on the theory of negligence, in which the plaintiff must establish that the defendant owed the plaintiff a duty of care, the defendant breached that duty of care, and the defendant’s breach caused the brain injury.

Internet of Things

The Internet of Things refers to the interconnection of everyday objects or things to the existing Internet infrastructure. Objects in the Internet of Things have Internet-connectivity capabilities, allowing them to send and receive data over a Wi-Fi connection. The things that make up the Internet of Things include cars, TVs, fitness bands, thermostats, smartwatches, medical devices, and household appliances like refrigerators, microwaves, and coffee makers. As more and more devices are built with Internet-connectivity capabilities, there will be more efforts by hackers to use these devices to steal information.
