My Practice Areas / I'm Here To Help You!
Have you been injured or disabled in an accident caused by someone's carelessness? Do you want to resolve your case with as little stress and hassle as possible? Do you just want to be treated fairly? Since 1981, I have been helping injured people in the Tucson area receive the results they need to get on with their lives. Let me show you the difference experience can make. I understand that going through a lawsuit is not something most people want to do. It can be time consuming and stressful. My goal is to make the situation as easy for you as possible. I will provide you with the information to help you make informed decisions about your case. I want you to be comfortable with the direction we choose to take.
Dog bites & injures
caused by animals
I am available to represent all people who have been injured by a dog, whether that injury is a bite or an injury caused by a dog running at large, jumping on a person or knocking them down. I understand the law that applies to these injuries. Often a lawsuit from an injury caused by a dog bite must be filed within a specific timeframe under very specific laws, so I encourage you to contact an attorney as soon as possible.
I will investigate the situation to determine if the animal had a dangerous propensity, and whether it should have been on a leash. In these cases, the dog owner may not be the only person who can be held responsible. Landlords or other property owners where the attack took place could be held liable. I will thoroughly review all of your options.
Slip and fall,
Slip and fall injuries can happen anywhere - a grocery store, a bar, a retail shopping center. Potential safety hazards could exist just around every corner. It isn't possible to live your life watching every step you take. Sometimes, accidents happen and when they do, you can hold the responsible party accountable. If you or a loved one has endured slip and fall injuries, you have the right to take action. Under premises liability laws, property owners and businesses are required to provide a safe environment for tenants, visitors and patrons. When they fail to do so, they may be held liable for what has taken place. For more than 25 years, I have helped Tucson, Arizona area residents injured due to the negligence of others. I seek maximum compensation for medical bills.
Dram shop &
If you have suffered an injury caused by an intoxicated person, you may be able to file a claim against the bar, club or individuals who provided alcohol to or over served the drunk driver or intoxicated person. Dram shop, or liquor liability law, can be applied to awide range of cases in which alcohol intoxication was a predominant factor inthe injury. Some examples include drunk driving accidents, injuries from barfights, assaults or stabbings by drunk people, and more. I have more than 25 years of experience handling personal injury and wrongful death cases. I will stand up for your rights to hold everyone responsible accountable for your injuries.
Drunk driving is an epidemic in America. The victim of a drunk driver crash is not only an accident victim. They are a victim of a crime. A person acting carelessly on the road is one thing, but the act of recklessly getting into a vehicle while drunk and knowingly putting lives in danger is something else. I understand that you have been through a lot physically and emotionally. You want to be treated fairly and receive compensation for what you have been through. You also want to see that justice is done to punish the drunk driver and to help prevent others from being injured. I am here to help.
Bicycle, motorcycle, auto &
A car accident occurs in the blink of an eye. One moment you are traveling safely to your destination and the next - your life is changed forever. Injuries resulting from a car accident are serious, sometimes leaving victims permanently disabled.
If you or a loved one has been injured in an auto accident caused by the carelessness of another driver, you deserve a lawyer who will provide personal attention to your case. For more than 25 years, I, attorney Clague Van Slyke III, have sought justice for those injured in car accidents. When you choose me to handle your car accident claim, you will not be treated like a number on a file, but as a person.
UNINSURED & UNDERINSURED
Sadly, too many accidents in Arizona are caused by drivers without insurance or without adequate insurance. You can protect yourself by buying uninsured and underinsured coverage. These optional overages are typically inexpensive and you are entitled to purchase coverage equal to your liability limits. I advise all my clients to purchase the largest amounts of coverage they can afford.
Just because an auto accident was caused by a driver without insurance or with inadequate coverage does not necessarily mean you cannot receive compensation for your injuries. While these cases are often more complex than other car accident matters, you still have options. As your attorney, I will stand by your side to sort through the insurance coverage and policy issues to help get results that are fair for you.
