Motor Vehicle Accidents
One of the best parts of life in Randolph County is being surrounded by natural beauty while still being close to a large city like St. Louis. Of course, that also means living in Randolph County can require a lot of time spent driving and exposure to the risk of car accidents.
We will work tirelessly to ensure that you are fully compensated for another driver’s negligence if you are involved in any of the following:
- Airplane Accidents
- Bicycle Accidents
- Boating / Jet Ski Accidents
- Bus Accidents
- Car Accidents
- Drunk Driving Accidents
- Motorcycle Accidents
- Pedestrian-Vehicle Accidents
- Recreational Vehicle Accidents
- Truck Accidents
The compensation you are eligible for could include not just damage done to your vehicle and your current medical bills, but it may also include pain and suffering, loss of normal life, lost wages, future medical expenses, and even punitive damages.
Unfortunately, auto accidents can also lead to fatal injuries. If you lose a loved one due to a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to recover for funeral expenses, grief and sorrow, loss of consortium, and the loss of economic support. At The Cates Law Firm, LLC our attorneys understand how devastating it can be to lose a loved one so unexpectedly and we will work with compassion to ensure that your rights are protected while you mourn your loss.
We all rely on physicians to take care of us when we are sick or injured. The physicians who treat us are held to a standard of care, and there are instances when that standard of care is not met. If you have been injured because the doctor treating you did not meet the standard of care, you may have a medical malpractice claim.
A claim for medical malpractice can be difficult to prove and is made even more challenging because the medical providers are able to call on extensive resources. You want an experienced team to help fight for your rights in a medical malpractice claim, and at The Cates Law Firm, LLC we have the experience you deserve when taking on a medical provider or hospital.
Randolph County is one of the leading agricultural, food processing, mining, and manufacturing centers in southwestern Illinois. While those industries can provide rewarding jobs and careers to the region, they also carry a high risk of workplace accidents.
A workplace injury can be covered by workers’ compensation, but sometimes the negligence of another party can lead to losses beyond what is covered by workers’ compensation. Instances, where a workplace injury could lead to a personal injury claim, include your employer acting negligently in not meeting regulatory requirements or the failure of equipment that was negligently manufactured.
If you are injured at work you already have to deal with the stress and uncertainty of a possible substantial loss in income. Let the attorneys at The Cates Law Firm, LLC work to ensure your rights are protected so that you are able to recover for the past and future losses created by your workplace accident.
