We can help in a variety of situations, such as medical malpractice, workers’ compensation, truck accidents, and auto accidents. The Fitzpatrick Firm, LLC is well known for obtaining positive outcomes for injured parties. Our goal is to gain just redress for injuries or wrongs done to you through the appropriate application of the law.
In legal terms, personal injury law is known as tort law.

In each situation, we can help you through the tangle of legal terms and conditions.
How Do You Know If You Have A Personal Injury Case?
Call the professionals – that’s us – and tell us what has happened. We will gather the necessary information, take pictures, and help you through the steps to discover whether you have a case. If we believe that you have a situation that warrants filing a lawsuit, we will take your case. Should you have a case, we won’t even discuss putting a dollar amount on your suit until you are back to health – a condition described as Maximum Medical Improvement. Once you have reached that point, it is easier to discern the cost of your medical care. We can then also discern whether you will be able to return to work or your regular daily activities.
