Losing or Destroying Evidence Can Have Serious Consequences

Injuries Can Take Time to Reveal Themselves

By Fox Willis Burnette, PLLC |

Collectability Can be an Issue in Injury Cases

Negligent Entrustment and Negligent Hiring

By Fox Willis Burnette, PLLC |

When there is an accident, suing the person that is directly responsible for the accident—the person or the business which appears to have caused the accident—may make sense. However, there are situations where the responsible party is a party that was not even there, and had no direct hand in the accident. Negligent Entrustment… Read More »
