It only takes a split second for an accident to happen, and it can often change your life permanently. An accident can also be a very frustrating event.

Types of Personal Injuries
Driving a car in this day and age can be particularly challenging. With so many distracted drivers on the road who are texting, talking on the phone, eating, etc., it has become more difficult than ever before to stay safe in your own car. Often, even the best defensive drivers find themselves in a car accident because of the inattentiveness or carelessness of other drivers.
If you find yourself injured in a car accident that was not your fault, Marshall will use his 30 years of experience as a successful personal injury attorney to fight for you and get you the compensation that you deserve for your injuries.
Large trucks can be extremely dangerous instrumentalities on the roadway, and by the very nature of their size, are much more likely to cause serious personal injuries and wrongful deaths. Consequently, trucks are well-insured against personal injury and wrongful death claims, and our Personal Injury Attorney Marshall B. Pitts, Jr. will use his 30 years of personal injury success to fight for you and get you the compensation that you deserve for your personal injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Motorcycles are enjoyable to ride, but other motorists rarely give motorcycles the respect that they deserve as motor vehicles. Consequently, motorcyclists often sustain personal injuries and wrongful death as the result of being cut off, turned in front of, or struck from behind.
When these unfortunate circumstances occur, our Personal Injury Attorney Marshall B. Pitts, Jr. will use his 30 years of personal injury success to fight for you and get you the compensation that you deserve for your personal injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Cycling is a wonderful form of exercise; however, the bad driving habits of some car, truck and bus drivers can change this leisure activity into one that becomes very dangerous. Bicycle riders who diligently obey the rules of the road are often run off the road, struck from behind, and have their presence on the road generally disrespected by automobiles. Unfortunately, bicycles, much like motorcycles, provide little or no protection in the case of an accident. Consequently, bicycle accidents tend to result in serious personal injuries or death.
Our Personal Injury Attorney Marshall B. Pitts, Jr. is a former cyclist and he will protect your rights and will help you obtain the compensation that you deserve for your personal injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Pedestrians who use crosswalks and other pedestrian pathways often find themselves at the mercy of inattentive or otherwise negligent automobile drivers. Pedestrians have no protection, and contact with automobiles rarely ends well, with serious injury or death being the typical outcome.
Our Personal Injury Attorney Marshall B. Pitts, Jr. has dealt with many such accidents, and he will protect your interests and help you obtain the compensation that you deserve for your personal injuries or the wrongful death of a loved one.
Our health is critical to all of us, and our health care professionals in the United States are some of the most qualified and committed in the world. Nevertheless, health care professionals are people, and people make mistakes. Medical mistakes are one of the leading causes of personal injury and death for persons receiving medical treatment. Unfortunately, cases involving medical mistakes (medical negligence/malpractice) are typically complex and very expensive to pursue. That is why it is so important to have experienced legal counsel on your side.

Nursing Home Negligence
There are times when loved ones, due to the decline of their physical and/or mental health, must be placed under the care of home health care services. Unfortunately, they are not always given the proper care they deserve by those charged with providing it. Falls, negligence, bedsores, malnutrition and assaults by other residents are common examples of the neglect suffered by this vulnerable group.
When your loved one has sustained personal injuries in a nursing home or while under the care of a home health service due to negligence, our Personal Injury Attorney Marshall B. Pitts, Jr. can help you and your family obtain the compensation that your loved one deserves for the injuries sustained.
Many places that we frequent such as stores, shopping malls, restaurants, office buildings, hotels, and sports arenas have a legal duty to maintain those premises in a safe condition that will not pose a potential harm to persons legally entitled to be on the premises. However, sometimes the responsibility to keep the premises safe is not met. A failure to post warning signs near a greasy or wet spot in a restaurant that causes a slip and fall, a hole in a walkway ramp leading into a building that causes a visitor to break an ankle or a dilapidated ceiling tile that falls and hits a hotel guest, are all clear examples of premises injuries that require a skilled attorney to help you maneuver the legal pitfalls that exist.
Our Personal Injury Attorney Marshall B. Pitts, Jr. has been handling premises liability cases for most of his 30 year career, and he can help you to get the compensation that you deserve for your personal injuries.
As parents, we send our children off to school where they will be under the care, custody, and control of school officials, and the overwhelming majority of the time they return home safely. However, there are times when children sustain personal injuries at school due to a lack of supervision by school officials. Playground injuries, activity bus accidents, failure to provide emergency medical treatment, and assaults by other students are examples of potential areas of school liability.
Our personal Injury Attorney Marshall B. Pitts, Jr. has obtained compensation for many children who have sustained personal injuries at school, and he will fight to obtain the personal injury compensation that your child deserves.
