In most states, YES. But you must act fast once you reach the age of majority. And the hard part is often obtaining evidence. Children or minors (typically those under 18) are frequently injured as the result of another’s negligent or intentional conduct. For example, car crashes, dog bites, and other incidents sometimes occur and cause long lasting damage. But sometimes the victim does not even know that they have a potential case. And nothing is done. After an injury, adult victims have a limited period to bring suit which is determined by their state’s statute of limitations which is frequently 2 or 3 years. For adults, if they fail to bring suit within that time period, they are out of luck.

We represent people in relation to claims based on the wrongful death of a loved one. Wrongful death cases arise in all types of circumstances, including vehicle crashes, medical malpractice, and other dangerous conditions.
When a person’s death is caused by another’s wrongful conduct, suit can be brought to vindicate the person who was killed and to recover damages for the surviving family members or others who depended upon the deceased for financial or emotional support. Companion claims, called survival claims, can also be brought in some states on behalf of the deceased person, usually for claims such as pre-death conscious pain and suffering, pre-death lost earnings, and the like.
If you have been charged with a felony or misdemeanor crime, or a serious traffic violation, it is important to speak to a criminal defense attorney as soon as possible. Timing can play a critical role in preparing an effective defense against such charges. When you face the possibility of jail time, losing your driver’s license, and other consequences, you cannot afford to wait.
We also represent clients for breach of contract disputes with consumers or suppliers, business dissolution and partnership disputes, property damage claims, commercial and residential real estate litigation, non-compete and non-solicitation agreements, and judgment collections.
We help businesses protect their company’s goodwill while preventing the disruptions and prospective expenses of full-scale litigation.
We also have significant experience representing plaintiffs in class action cases in the District of Columbia and nationwide. Our principal has been a member of the plaintiffs’ team in large multi-district litigation matters including in the areas of antitrust, consumer fraud, and securities cases.
