A Track Record of Success Covering a Full Range of Accidents and Injuries

Here are the types of personal injury accidents we can help you with:

Motor vehicle accidents: Whether you simply tweaked your back and need a few chiropractic appointments, you have a broken bone or badly sprained muscle, bruising, cuts, or a serious injury such as head trauma or internal bleeding, we’ll get you the money you need to pay for your current and longterm medical care.

Pedestrian accidents: These accidents can be especially dangerous. The vehicle comes in direct contact with your body without your vehicle to protect you. Franks Gerkin McKenna will fight for your medical care and make sure you are fully compensated for the injury.

Motorcycle accidents: These accidents are also dangerous due to how much your body is exposed when you ride a motorcycle. We will ensure you get the medical care you need and connect you with resources to repair your bike, if possible.

Semi-truck crashes: Due to the size of the truck and weight of what the truck is carrying, unique situations, injuries, and damage can occur from these accidents. Our personal injury lawyers determine negligence, malfunction of the vehicle, bad weather, or other causes to ensure the proper action is taken to resolve the case.

Slip and fall injuries: These premises liability incidents can happen when a structure collapses, maintenance is not kept up, or reckless activity takes place that results in a fall. We’ll see to it that the proper repairs get made and you are able to recover from the accident with proper medical treatment.

Injuries from defective products: This is called product liability. Franks Gerkin McKenna will fight for compensation for your injury and illness resulting from using the product and fight for your compensation.

Burn injuries: Burn injuries can be some of the most serious injuries sustained in a car accident, truck accident, or any other traumatic event that involves a fire. If you have suffered from a burn, you may be entitled to significant amounts of compensation.

Battery: When another person attacks you, we will get you the care you need for your injuries and ensure the person pays the consequences.

Dog bites and other animal attacks: Our team will identify if there is insurance to make you whole. In any case, we are likely able to connect you with the appropriate treatment.

Fatal accidents: You are in enough grief after the wrongful death of someone you know without having to deal with the legal side of it. We will get you compensation and enforce safety policies to prevent the same thing from happening in the future.

Workers’ compensation: For on-the-job accidents that call for representation in a workers’ compensation claim and may also involve claims against parties other than your employer, you can count on Franks Gerkin McKenna for a fair resolution.
