Personal injury and medical malpractice actions are designed to compensate victims for the intentional and negligent actions of others. There can be significant awards to individuals injured by products placed into the stream of commerce which are harmful even when they are used as directed. The Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington can evaluate your case and help you seek just compensation. The law seeks to compensate victims and their families for pain and suffering, lost earnings, loss of consortium, and at times award punitive damages in the event of gross negligence.

Common personal injury claims include those arising from motor vehicle accidents, slip and falls and construction accidents, including falls from scaffolds and buildings. However, they may also include those arising out of assaults and batteries, even sexual assaults and murders, or when victims are injured on the premises of others. Injuries suffered on another's property - whether it is at a home, store, office, on the street or commercial building - are often the result of negligent maintenance or even complete disregard for the safety of others. The Law Offices of Frederick K. Brewington will work with you to see that your right to seek compensation is protected and enforced.
