What We Do

Our areas of practice include tort and insurance law, product liability law, personal injury law, insurance litigation, trucking accidents, railroad accidents and motor vehicle wrecks, including automobiles and motorcycles.

Please contact us for a free appointment to discuss your case. We can come to you if it is not possible for you to come to our office. We work almost exclusively on a contingency fee basis, which means that we only get paid if we recover money for you.

Personal Injury

Personal injury cases are all significant to the injured person. Fear and uncertainty are normal reactions to being hurt by someone else. We have handled these cases for many years and can help you with yours.

Automobile Wrecks

Automobile wrecks can cause severe, debilitating and permanent injuries which can result in significant financial losses. The law provides an injured person the right to recover his or her damages from the negligent party. Such damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, funeral expenses and other losses. Individuals can also recover for the pain and suffering caused by their injuries and treatment.

Products Liability

Products liability covers a broad range of legal actions. Products liability includes negligence, strict liability, breach of warranty, and various consumer protection claims. Negligence ranges from failure to warn to design or manufacturing defects. For products liability cases, hard evidence is crucial and good experts are essential. O'Neal & Brown has handled such cases for decades now.

Nursing Home Abuse

Placing a loved one in the care of a nursing home is sometimes the most difficult decision a family can make. As our population continues to age, the number of nursing home residents has increased dramatically.  Unfortunately, this has also resulted in an increase in elder abuse.  Recent studies suggest annually up to “2 million Americans age 65 or older have been injured, exploited or otherwise mistreated” by their caregivers.    Many types of abuse can occur in nursing home and assisted living facilities.  Abuse can be intentional violence, such as hitting, jerking, scratching or even kicking. Abuse can also include sexual assault. These types of physical abuse can be committed either by staff members or unsupervised residents.  Most often, elder abuse comes in the form of neglect, where the staff simply does not pay attention to the needs of the residents.  Unfortunately, the neglect often results from the facility being understaffed.  In these cases, understaffing usually results from the owners of the nursing home refusing to hire enough staff to take care of the residents.  When a nursing home refuses to hire enough staff to take care of their residents, they are placing their own financial well-being ahead of their residents’ physical well-being.  Neglect in the nursing home can cause falls, broken bones, serious head injuries, dehydration, malnutrition, medication errors, and pressure ulcers (also known as “bedsores” or “decubitus ulcers”).  Neglect can also result in embarrassment and humiliation for unattended residents, who are often left sitting in soiled diapers for extended periods of time.  When a nursing home violates your trust and doesn’t fulfill its obligation to care for a loved one, the lawyers at O’Neal & Brown have the expertise, experience and resources to hold the nursing home accountable for their actions.  Our attorneys are available for free consultations either over the phone or in person to discuss any problems you or a loved one may have with a nursing home.  Often, we are able to offer guidance and assistance to families to ensure a loved one receives the care and treatment they deserve, even when the situation does not require a lawsuit. 

Railroad Collisions

Collisions related to the railroad often involve complicated engineering issues and extensive regulations. An understanding of these issues is critical to these cases. O'Neal & Brown is experienced in handling railroad collision cases.

Insurance/Denial of Benefits

Everyone expects insurance companies to pay benefits as required under their policies. However, not all insurance companies take their obligations seriously, and sometimes they deny legitimate claims. If you have been denied benefits, including those for disability, please contact our law firm for a free consultation.
