The distinctive feature of our firm is that we focus solely on accidents, injury and disability. By focusing so tightly on these issues, we combine knowledge of four fields — personal injury, highway accidents, Social Security Disability benefits and workers' comp — into a single pool of injury and disability law:

  • People who are injured on the job are not limited to the benefits listed under workers' compensation. We build a bridge for them connecting them to disability benefits as well.
  • People who are injured in a car or truck accident are not limited to personal injury compensation.
  • If they were driving as part of their job, we connect them to workers' compensation.
  • Persons injured by an egregious act of carelessness or indifference may ask for punitive damages against the driver who was drunk, drowsy or speeding.
  • If they were hurt on the job by someone not employed by the same company, we can pursue a third-party lawsuit for maximum combined compensation.
  • If they are permanently disabled, we create a pathway to disability benefits.
  • Families of persons killed in a traffic accident or a workplace accident can be compensated through wrongful death claims.

Serving 'The City of Oaks' Since 1983

Some firms can make some of these connections, but it is unusual to be able to make all of them, as O'Malley Tunstall PLLC does.
