No Matter The Type Of Case, We Can Handle It
Our firm has the in-depth knowledge and skill necessary to take on a broad spectrum of personal injury cases across Wyoming. Here are a few of the matters we can help you with:
- Motor vehicle crashes – Many serious car and truck accidents happen on interstate 80 and interstate 25, but countless collisions occur on smaller roads as well. We can also help if you were injured on a bicycle or while walking.
- Ski accidents – Recovering compensation for a skiing injury can be complex, since many ski resorts force skiers to sign intimidating liability waivers. However, in some cases, it is still possible to pursue a claim.
- Sexual abuse – We have particular experience representing those abused or assaulted by clergy, coaches and others in positions of trust. Our lawyers know how to handle these cases with sensitivity and discretion.
- Nursing home neglect – From malnutrition and dehydration to medication errors and preventable falls, negligent care facilities should be held accountable for injuries or wrongful death.
- Premises liability – You may have a claim if you were harmed due to a dog bite, slip-and-fall accident, lack of proper security, fire code violation or another type of negligence of someone else’s property.
Wyoming Has Its Own Time Limits And Rules
Each state has its own statute of limitations for personal injury cases. In Wyoming, you have four years to file a lawsuit after an injury to a person, according to W.Y. Stat. § 1-3-105(a)(iv). In wrongful death cases, you have only two years to file a claim.
When it comes to situations where more than one party shares the blame for an incident, Wyoming follows a “modified comparative fault” rule. This means that you can only recover compensation if you were 50% or less at fault. For example, if you were hit by another driver who was found to be 75% at fault and you were 25% at fault, you could still seek compensation for your losses.
