Brent Adams & Associates' accident and personal injury attorneys recognize that our clients and their families are usually under severe financial stress from expensive medical treatment and lost work. Our law firm works hard to make sure claims are paid promptly and at full value. We handle all types of personal injury cases, the most common are car accidents. Automobile collisions are not the only cases in which personal injury claims arise. We routinely handle many other types of personal injury cases including medical malpractice, nursing home abuse and neglect, dog bites, slip and fall, insurance disputes, construction accidents, daycare abuse, asbestos exposure, motorcycle accidents and more.
