The Chander Law Firm represents individuals in personal injury actions, including car accidents, premises liability, workplace injury, medical malpractice, nursing home abuse, and catastrophic injury cases.
Personal injury law describes a wide array of legal claims. Personal injury is commonly thought of to cover torts of negligence which include actions arising out of car accidents, property injuries, products liability, or due to medical negligence.
However, personal injury law also includes a variety of claims that arise out of intentional torts. These claims include common law actions for assault, battery, conversion, trespass to land, trespass to chattels, false imprisonment, intentional infliction of emotional distress, fraud, and invasion of privacy. They also include claims like defamation (slander & libel) and tortious interference.
Many of the causes that constitute personal injury actions are also a part of commercial litigation, civil rights, and consumer rights claims.

Workplace Injury - Workers Compensation
Workplace injury claims can be complicated by the coverage of Workers Compensation laws. Workers Compensation is a form of insurance that provides compensation of employees injured while on the job in exchange for relinquishment of personal injury actions against the employer.
Although Workers Compensation is meant to protect employees, the system is often abused by employers. Employers often unlawfully terminate employees in retaliation for filing Workers Compensation claims. Employers and insurance companies often intentionally and wrongfully deny Workers Compensation claims. An employee injured in a workplace injury may also be denied medical care by physicians as a result of the Workers Compensation system.
Medical Malpractice & Nursing Home Abuse
Medical Malpractice claims include any medical mistake made by a doctor or any other medical professional that results in injury or death. Medical malpractice claims have become less popular to prosecute due to caps placed on damages in many states. Nevertheless, serious injuries and death resulting from negligence in medical care still warrant investigation, especially when the long term actual damages to the injured are significant.
Nursing home abuse is far too common. Elderly and individuals requiring daily care are often mistreated by their attendants, resulting in breach of trust, injury, and death. If your loved one has been injured or killed as a result nursing home abuse or negligence, you should consult with an attorney for an evaluation of damages.
