If a driver fails to use reasonable care and as a result of that failure you are injured, then the driver is responsible (liable) to you for those injuries.
Serious car and other motor vehicle accidents require the guidance of an experienced attorney. We have years of practice and an impressive track record representing people who have suffered significant injuries in motor vehicle accidents(commercial and personal). We work with physicians and other health care providers to assess and review all the short and long-term medical aspects of your case. Our detailed understanding of state automobile, insurance and liability laws means we understand the different sources of recovery available to car accident victims and their families as well as the various theories of liability that enable those victims to collect from the parties who caused them harm. In some states, a plaintiff may recover even if he or she was more negligent than the defendant was, that is, negligent in the amount of 51 percent or more.
If you are involved in an accident, be careful of what you say or sign. Get the names of witnesses and write them down with contact information. Get medical attention as soon as possible after the accident. If possible, take pictures of your vehicle and the other vehicle involved. Take pictures of the location where the accident took place. Claims investigators from the other driver’s insurance company or representatives of your own insurance company may contact you. Other than reporting your claim to your insurance company, you should not give them statements about the accident. First, talk with us.

If a driver of a motor vehicle fails to use reasonable care and a result of that failure the driver or passenger on a motorcycle is injured, then the driver of the motor vehicle is legally responsible for those injuries. The failure to wear a motorcycle helmet is treated in many states in the same manner as a failure to wear seatbelts in an automobile. Such failure to wear a helmet (in the case of a head injury) when an accident occurs could limit or reduce the final award of damages.
Commercial Trucking Accidents
Representing victims of tractor-trailer wrecks presents a challenge not experienced in other types of wrecks. Because the trucking industry is heavily regulated, an accident involving a truck is significantly more complex than an automobile accident case. Frequently, an action can be brought against both the driver and the insurance company. Consequently, you need a lawyer who has the experience and specialized knowledge to lead the investigation into the cause of the accident and to help you collect the maximum amount allowed under the law.
