How Olin Lippiello LLP Can Help
As a client of Olin Lippiello LLP, we can help you complete medical, insurance and court forms. We will make sure you don’t miss deadlines. Recovering from an injury is enough to take on—let us keep track of the paperwork so you can focus on your recovery.
We will fight for you to get the compensation you deserve. Wrongfully injured persons deserve to be paid back for their medical and property losses. They are also sometimes entitled to recovery of lost wages as well as compensation for their emotional pain and suffering. At Olin Lippiello LLP, we help injured clients recover compensation for all of their allowable losses.
Loss of Consortium
Negligence also affects family members. Spouses, children and parents of wrongfully injured persons may sometimes recover for what is called their “loss of consortium.” Simply, that means the family member may have lost the society, companionship and assistance of the injured person. In certain personal injury cases, we can help spouses, children and parents of recover the loss of consortium damages that they may also be due.
In the most egregious personal injury cases, compensating the injured party may not be enough. Where injuries are intentional, the law may force the defendant to pay additional—punitive—damages. Such damages are designed to punish the bad actor and deter it (and others) from engaging in similar conduct in the future. When we evaluate your situation, we will also consider whether it is an appropriate case to seek punitive damages.
If it is in your best interest, we can try to negotiate a settlement so you don’t have to drag out the situation and relive a traumatic event in court. Once you sign a settlement, however, you agree not to pursue a case. In some cases you might feel pressured to accept a settlement while still in shock—protect yourself by having us review any offer you might receive to see if it proposes sufficient compensation for your case. If not, we will help you negotiate for more or, if necessary, take your case to trial.

Cars are powerful machines. To stay safe on the road you not only have to be a safe driver, everyone else does as well. It only takes a moment of reckless or inattentive driving for someone else’s decision to send their vehicle crashing into your life. If you have been injured in an automobile accident, it is important to call an experienced personal injury lawyer soon. At Olin Lippiello LLP, we can help you recover for injuries caused by other drivers.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Being injured while you’re out walking or riding your bicycle can have serious consequences, physically and financially. You are much more vulnerable than when in a vehicle. Different regulations also apply to situations involving walkers, joggers, and cyclists. Call us so that we can talk through your situation and determine if you may recover for your bicycle or pedestrian injury.
Slips & Falls
Places of business are not always safe. Every year, people suffer serious injuries due to the negligence of others. Slipping and falling can cause injuries such as sprains and fractures, or more serious harm such as permanent damage to your neck, back, brain, or head. If you have fallen and suffered injuries as the result of someone else’s negligence, it is important to call an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
Negligence or carelessness that results in the loss of life is sometimes called “wrongful death.” A wrongful death lawsuit may allow the next of kin or spouse or partner to recover on behalf of the deceased. In certain situations, legal action is also available to the surviving dependent family members. There are often unpaid medical and funeral expenses, the loss of financial support, and emotional harm.
There are many other things that can cause personal or property injuries. Equipment can be dangerous. Reputations can be harmed. Pets bite. And people act carelessly. Most personal injuries are called “torts” and we have a long track record of understanding tort law and helping clients know their rights. No matter the source, if you have been injured due to the negligence of someone else, allow us to help you recover.
Dealing with a serious injury?
Recovering is hard enough, potentially taking a long time and keeping you from work and other important activities. You shouldn’t have to do this alone, particularly if you are entitled to compensation but unable to get it.
