If you’ve never needed to hire a lawyer, you need to know where to turn if you’ve been in an accident. Unfortunately, many people are intimidated by the process.

At Wilson Kehoe Winingham, we want you to feel comfortable and confident when you make this important decision. Use this resource to learn how to hire a lawyer, when you may need one, and what you can expect when contacting an attorney.

How Do I Know If I Need a Lawyer for My Case?

Deciding to hire a lawyer is a challenging and personal choice to make. When someone decides to contact our office, it’s often a decision they have not made lightly. Although some of our clients immediately knew they needed an attorney, many others reached out to us only after they experienced significant hardship or realized their case was more complicated than they initially thought.

You may be unsure what to do next, whether you have been injured in a life-altering car accident, sustained lasting injuries at the hands of a neglectful physician, or experienced an injury due to workplace negligence. The attorneys at Wilson Kehoe Winingham can help determine the best next steps for your case.

The attorneys at Wilson Kehoe Winingham specialize in injury lawsuits, including the following areas of expertise:

Medical Malpractice

Our medical malpractice attorneys have recovered damages in many malpractice claims, including an undiagnosed pulmonary embolism that resulted in a young man’s death.

Birth Injuries

When a medical provider mismanages the birth process, resulting in injury to the mother or baby, they can be held responsible. Our birth injury lawyers have helped many families recover damages after a birth injury, including this mother whose infant suffered a brain injury during birth.

Vehicle Accidents

Accidents involving cars and other motor vehicles are all too common. Our attorneys have settled many cases, including this accident that left a motorcyclist paralyzed.

Construction Site Accidents

Construction site supervisors and employers are responsible for mitigating risks and following job site regulations. When they act negligently, they can cause someone to sustain a permanent injury or even death. Our workplace accident lawyers have helped recover damages for victims of construction site accidents, such as this coal miner injured in an explosion.
