AREAS OF PRACTICE

NURSING HOME ABUSE
AND NEGLECT

Our loved ones deserve proper care when they are no longer able to care for themselves. Unfortunately, many nursing homes and elder care facilities do not take proper care of them, resulting in painful and sometimes deadly decubitus ulcers (bedsores), malnutrition and weight loss, dehydration, recurrent infections, falls and fractures, unsanitary conditions, and even death. Many of these injuries occur due to an insufficient and poorly trained staff. These problems occur because corporate ownership on many occasions is more concerned with profits than providing appropriate care.  THE LAW OFFICES OF TODD GRIFFIn understands the special needs of nursing home residents. We vigorously prosecute these claims.  For more information on nursing home negligence, please visit our  Nursing Home Frequently Asked Questions.

We pursue all claims for personal injuries including medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering, as well as for damage to your automobile including cost of repairs, loss of value, and loss of use.  Hiring an attorney helps maximize your recovery as well as eliminate much of the stress of dealing with an insurance adjuster.

In most cases, we will obtain a settlement on your behalf that will result in a larger net amount to you. For more information, please visit our Motor Vehicle Accident Frequently Asked Questions.

MEDICAL AND PHARMACY MALPRACTICE 

In Arkansas, and indeed across the nation, medical neglect and mistakes are a growing problem, yet many doctors and insurance companies claim to be "victimized" by patients and lawyers, claiming that the courts are clogged with "frivolous" lawsuits that drive up the cost of malpractice insurance and the practice of medicine.THE LAW OFFICES OF TODD GRIFFIN prides itself on accepting and vigorously prosecuting only those cases that are meritorious. We retain world-class experts in medicine, nursing, and pharmacology to review, evaluate, and testify in the cases we accept. To learn more about medical malpractice law, please visit our Medical Malpractice Frequently Asked Questions.

TRACTOR/TRAILER (18 WHEELER CASES)

The average tractor/trailer rig (18-wheeler)  weighs 16 times more than a passenger car. Due to the tremendous difference in weight and size, accidents involving 18-wheelers and passenger vehicles are often extremely serious. Additionally, even though federal trucking regulations prohibit truck drivers from being on the road if they are tired or sick, drivers are often on tight schedules, resulting in an insufficient amount of sleep.  Sleep deprivation and/or the inappropriate use of chemical substances to stay awake, often leads to inattentive driving, which results in accidents.  If you or a loved one has been injured or killed as the result of an 18-wheeler collision, please call us toll free at 1-800-641-4640 to learn how we can help.  The consultation is free, and we only receive a fee if we obtain a recovery for you.

DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS

When products are sold to consumers that are unsafe for their intended use, they can result in serious injuries.  If you or a loved one have been injured by a defective product, you may be able to recover compensation for your injuries and damages through a product liability claim. THE LAW OFFICES OF TODD GRIFFIN has experience in prosecuting claims for personal injury and death caused by defective products.  All products are subject to this law. Some examples of the defective product cases we have handed include automobile tire rims, personal watercraft, boats, and medications. We have the necessary experience and resources to evaluate and prosecute your product liability claim.

TRAIN CASES 

 

 LAW OFFICES OF TODD GRIFFIN has experience handling cases involving train accidents and railroad crossing accidents. Train accident cases can involve trains and locomotives that carry both passengers and cargo.  Some of the most common reasons for train accidents include unprotected crossings, inadequate or malfunctioning warnings at railroad crossings, failure to whistle or notify victims of an approaching train, overgrown foliage obscuring lines of sight, and trains traveling at excessive speeds.  Cases can also result from train passenger injuries, train derailments or even chemical spills. If you have been injured as a pedestrian or in a motor vehicle collision with a train, the train company may be responsible for your injuries. Please call us to learn how we can help.
