MATTERS TO US
We know many of our clients as friends and neighbors.
We represent people in several different areas of the law.
How can we help you?
Elder Abuse & Nursing
It’s hard enough to make that life decision to go into a nursing home or assisted care facility, but sometimes it’s the best and safest option we have when we get older and less able to care for ourselves. We have to trust that the nursing home or assisted care facility is going to be a safe and professional place where we can expect that our loved ones will be cared for without worry of harm.
If a loved one has been hurt in a nursing home or assisted care facility, you may be able to bring an action to hold that facility accountable for their actions, and to demand that the facility compensate you or your loved one for economic losses suffered and for intangible losses such as pain and suffering and loss of companionship.
& Wrongful Death
You – or someone you know – is hit by a car. Or maybe a loved one has been
abused or neglected in a nursing home.
Or maybe it’s a doctor or a hospital who made mistakes in their care of you or of someone you love. What do you do? Is there a way to make it right and be compensated for what they did?
If you've been injured, it may feel overwhelming to know where to begin. That's why it's so important to consider
a firm's experience in handling cases before you make a decision.
At Bliss Law, we are dedicated to
protecting the rights and interests of
those who have been hurt because of the negligence or recklessness of another party.
There’s an old saying that whiskey is for drinking and water is for fighting over.
But it’s usually a lot more complicated
For landowners, disputes can arise
when an upstream landowner drains
a slough or re-directs water from his
fields and sends it downstream.
The water he’s draining doesn’t belong
to the landowner – it belongs to the
State of North Dakota. The downstream landowner may not want that water. Whether the upstream landowner
can legally drain water from his land
onto another’s land, and whether the downstream landowner must accept
the water, are legal questions which
may have to be answered in a court
Sexual Abuse & Assault
Sexual abuse is devastating to its victims, whether it occurs at the hands of a stranger, family member, mentor, teacher, caregiver or anyone who is in a position to leverage power. A civil lawsuit does more than just recover compensation for the victims of sex abuse. A lawsuit can also be a powerful tool for victims to obtain the justice they deserve and the closure they need.
& Birthing Injuries
Medical treatment should result in comfort, reassurance and a course of action to properly diagnose and treat any illness, injury or medical condition. Medical malpractice occurs when a medical professional fails to meet a reasonable standard of care through a negligent act or failure to act. As a result, devastating impacts can occur. We're here to help you understand your rights.
Nobody who runs a business wants to
think about lawsuits. There are risks involved in running a company. There
could be a vendor who hasn’t paid you
or maybe you have a dispute with
a partner or shareholder that you just
can’t resolve on your own. It may be time to seek legal advice.
