We Take All Personal Injury Cases Seriously

If you have suffered a serious injury in an accident of some kind, you know how challenging it can be to recover and to get your life back in order. In addition to the concerns about recovering physically, you also need to face the reality of paying for medical care and covering for the wages you lost if you’ve been unable to return to work for some time.

At Furman Nilsen & Oyler PLLC, we understand the challenges you’re facing. We bring more than 25 years of legal experience to every personal injury case we handle. With our experience, we will help you through the legal process to obtain the compensation you deserve.

Medical Malpractice

Medical malpractice is one of the more complicated areas of personal injury law. It requires a deep knowledge of the law and legal procedures as well as a working understanding of the medical and scientific factors involved. Before accepting a potential medical malpractice case, we ensure that we have no conflicts of interest, that the case involves egregious conduct on the part of the health care provider, and a clear link exists between the provider’s violation of the medical standard of care and the client’s injuries.  It benefits no one — the client, the medical provider, or the attorney — to pursue a case in which liability or damages cannot be proven.

Medical malpractice can occur in a doctor’s office, a lab, a hospital, a nursing home, a chiropractor’s office, at home, or in a physical therapy setting.  Malpractice can involve a misdiagnosis, a faulty treatment or procedure, a failure to diagnose, or a number of other negligent actions. With our experience, our lawyers know how to assess and win medical malpractice cases.

Defective Products

Manufacturers and drug companies can produce wonderful consumer products for us and our families.  Conversely, they can produce inherently dangerous products, such as asbestos or lead paint.  They can also make products that, while safe when manufactured correctly, can have a faulty part or use poor materials that make the product dangerous.  For instance, imagine a child’s bike that was constructed with brakes that didn’t work — and you don’t realize it until your child goes down a steep hill. Other products may have insufficient warnings that fail to explain why you shouldn’t use a product in a certain way.  C. Dean Furman has represented companies involved in manufacturing products.  His prior experience in personal injury defense provides an insight into how these companies look at and evaluate your case.

Auto Accidents

If you have been in any kind of auto accident, we can help you. We handle car accidents, truck accidents and pedestrian accidents. Our lawyers have a wealth of experience, including previously representing auto insurance companies defending these claims, assessing accidents for liability and determining the full extent of long-term injuries to obtain maximum compensation for our clients.

Dangerous Premises

Property owners and store managers are required to make sure their premises are safe for everyone who might enter. This includes stores, restaurants, hospitals, groceries, trampoline parks, and even private residences. If you have been hurt on someone else’s property as a result of a dangerous condition, talk with our lawyers. We can help you obtain compensation for your injuries.
