LET OUR 5-STAR TEAM FIGHT FOR YOU
We handle the following legal issues:
Car Crash Lawyers
It is estimated that in the United States a crash occurs about every 30 seconds. This is the most current data published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These can be anything from a minor fender bender to a full-blown motor vehicle collision with injuries or fatalities. While this number is staggering, it is not a complete and accurate representation of car crashes in the U.S. – many minor collisions go unreported.
Bicycle Injury Lawyers
Bicycle accidents typically occur when a driver strikes someone riding a bicycle on or near the road. Because bicycles provide very little protection during collisions, the injuries to the rider are often severe and debilitating. In many cases, the rider of the bicycle may even be killed.Regardless of the circumstances, Schneider & Palcsik can help each client understand how Vermont laws will apply to his or her case and whether filing a lawsuit would be beneficial.
Boat Injury Lawyers
Accidents involving watercraft may occur for a number of reasons, including the use of alcohol, excessive speed, inexperienced drivers or simply behaving recklessly. Unfortunately, these accidents often cause injury and/or property damage. In these cases, the victims can file claims against the person or persons responsible for the accident.
Bus Injury Lawyers
Bus accidents are often complicated, as a number of different people or organizations may be held responsible for any injuries or property damage that occurs. Depending on the circumstances, claims may be filed against negligent drivers, the manufacturer of the bus, the company that owns and operates the bus or the driver of the bus. If the bus is part of a public transportation system, a government entity may even be responsible for any accidents the bus causes.If you were involved in a bus accident, Schneider & Palcsik can help you determine who is at fault for the accident and whether or not a claim can be filed.
dog bite lawyer
Dog Bite Lawyers
In the United States, more than 4.5 million people are bitten by dogs each year. Nearly one in five people who are bitten by a dog have to seek medical treatment. This means that roughly 800,000 people in the United States seek medical treatment for dog bites and more than half of those are children. Senior citizens are second, just under children, as the most common victims of dog bites.
Motorcycle Crash Lawyers
Motorcycle accidents can be particularly devastating. Because a motorcycle doesn’t offer the same level of protection as a larger vehicle, injury and death are more common outcomes. In addition, because of the size and appearance of motorcycles, other drivers often fail to see them on the road. Nonetheless, riders of motorcycles have as much right to be on the road as any other driver.If an accident occurs because of another driver’s negligence or wrongful action, the victims are entitled to compensation. Schneider & Palcsik can represent victims of motorcycle accidents as they seek the justice they deserve.
Product Liability Lawyers
When you purchase a product, you have faith that it will work properly and that it won’t pose any hidden risk to your safety. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Defective products cause injury and property damage on a daily basis.When dangerous defects are found, products are often recalled by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. However, if consumers have already sustained injuries or losses because of the defective product, they may be entitled to compensation from the party responsible for the defect. In most cases, the party in question is the product’s manufacturer.In order to win a product liability lawsuit, the attorney and claimant must prove several issues, including:
- The presence of a defect.
- The existence of an injury or loss.
- The relationship between the product defect and the injury or loss in question.
A claimant must also show that he or she was using the product as intended or recommended at the time of the incident.
Slip and Fall Lawyers
Slip and fall accidents can occur for a variety of reasons, including poor lighting, unmarked wet floors, torn carpeting, uneven floors and broken stairs. When these accidents occur, injuries can be mild to severe. In some cases, it may be as simple as a cut or scrape. In more severe accidents, victims may sustain head and neck injuries and multiple broken bones. Regardless of the nature of the injury, the victim may be entitled to compensation if the fall resulted from another party’s negligence.
Truck Crash Lawyers
Any auto accident can be serious, but accidents involving commercial trucks can be particularly severe. Semi-trucks are much larger than standard vehicles, and they can cause a great deal of damage.If you are in an accident involving a truck, you may sustain significant injuries. Fortunately, with the help of Schneider & Palcsik, you may be able to seek compensation from the driver of the truck and/or the trucking company. For example, if your attorney can show that the driver was distracted, too tired or violated traffic laws, he or she may be held responsible for the crash by the court.
Wrongful Death Lawyers
Wrongful death claims are typically filed when someone dies because of the wrongful action or lack of action by another person. The most common situations that result in wrongful death claims are car accidents, medical malpractice, assault with a weapon and car accidents. Winning a wrongful death case is not easy, so it’s best to find a qualified lawyer who understands Vermont’s laws and can help you build a strong case.
Traumatic Brain Injury Lawyers
There are a number of ways such an injury can be sustained. Car collisions, motorcycle crashes, slip and falls, and falling objects can all cause a traumatic brain injury. When the human brain suffers a traumatic injury, it can affect the victim’s speech, motor skills, comprehension, vision, hearing, and many other areas of their life. Because the brain is so complex, the exact nature of the injury can take some time to reveal itself, or can even change over time. Some disabilities from these injuries are temporary and heal on their own, while others leave permanent damage the victim will have to deal with for the rest of their lives.
When people plan a visit to an amusement park or festival, they have visions of enjoying the rides and having tons of fun. Unfortunately, park fun is ruined for some by an injury, caused by the negligence park or festival staff.
Swimming Pool Injury Lawyers
Pool injuries are more common than you might imagine. In fact, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, 300 children, under the age of 5 die as a result of drowning on a yearly basis. Some 2,000 more were sent to the hospital after a drowning incident. Furthermore, drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death in children aged 1-14, and for each death, there were four non-fatal incidents resulting in hospitalization. Nationwide, there are nine people who drown each and every day.
