Auto Accident Attorney

You may be contacted directly by an insurance company regarding your claim in hopes of a quick settlement. So why hire an attorney? The fact of the matter is, the insurance company has their interests in mind when settling with you and their main focus is to keep their costs as low as possible. Many injuries don’t fully manifest themselves for days after an accident, such as soft tissue injuries or even brain injuries. Settling without the benefits of a knowledgeable legal advocate to review your case could leave you with unpaid medical bills and ill health due to financial concerns over treatment costs. Don’t let this happen to you. Our firm stands ready to aggressively pursue your rights through vigorous settlement negotiations or even at trial if necessary.

Car Accident Attorney

Car & Auto Accident Statistics

6 million auto accidents take place in the United States every year, involving cars, trucks, motorcycles, and other types of motor vehicles. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, these accidents are responsible for 250,000 injuries on an annual basis, and an additional 40,000 fatalities. While some of these accidents occur due to chance, or random unfortunate circumstance, the majority are brought about due to driver negligence. This negligence can be manifested in many ways, from distracted driving, to driving under the influence, to reckless or dangerous driving. However this negligence is displayed, it is often the responsibility of the negligent party to cover injury costs and other damages in the event that their negligence results in an accident.

If you have been injured in a car or auto accident, you may be entitled to considerable financial compensation, and you should contact a car accident attorney right away. With an attorney’s help, you can increase your chances of obtaining the restitution you need to recover to the fullest possible extent.

After an Accident

The steps you take after an accident can be very critical to the outcome of your case. For example, even if you weren’t seriously hurt, it’s a wise idea to get checked out by a licensed physician. What’s more, by enlisting the services of an attorney, there is a strong chance that your financial recovery can be far greater than if you chose to represent yourself in your personal injury claim.

Airplane & Aviation Accidents

Despite the fact that flying is far safer than driving, there are still a percentage of aviation accidents that injure or otherwise claim the lives of passengers, especially when it comes to smaller passenger planes and helicopters.

Back & Neck Injuries

Car accidents continue to be one of the leading causes of death in the United States, especially among children, teens and young adults. People frequently sustain neck and back injuries after being involved in an auto accident, and these include whiplash injuries and spinal cord injuries which lead to temporary or permanent paralysis.

Bicycle v. Car Accidents

Every year thousands of bicyclists are stuck by motor vehicles that share the same public roads. When the negligent driver of a motor vehicle strikes and injures a bicyclist, the driver’s auto insurance policy is responsible for covering the victim’s economic and non-economic damages incurred from the accident.

Brain & Spinal Cord Injuries

In motor vehicle accidents, it’s not uncommon for the accident victims to sustain traumatic brain injuries or spinal cord injuries, or both. This is especially the case in more serious auto accidents. Spinal cord injuries can lead to paralysis below the injury site, whereas TBIs can lead to coma, memory loss, and in worse cases death.

Car Accidents

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Association, car accidents were responsible for 32,367 deaths in one year; they are among the top ten leading causes of death for people of all ages in the U.S. and they are the leading cause of death in children, teens, and young adults.

Catastrophic Injuries

Catastrophic injuries are injuries that are serious and life-threatening. Such injuries include traumatic brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, injuries to internal organs, and amputation injuries, all of which can be sustained in a serious auto collision.

Drunk Driving Accidents

The National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) reports that in one year, one-third of traffic-related fatalities involved an alcohol-impaired driver representing 10,228 deaths. In that same year, over 1.4 million drivers were arrested for driving under the influence, which accounts for only one percent of the number of self-reported drunk driving incidents.

Hit & Run Injuries

In  and all across the United States, it is against the law for someone to be involved in an accident and flee the scene. If you were injured in a hit and run accident, you may be able to recover compensation from your own auto insurance carrier to cover your damages such as medical bills, property damage and lost income.

Lost Wages

When people are injured in an accident, they often times are physically incapable of returning to work for a period of several weeks or even the better part of the year as they nurse their injuries and recover. When you file a personal injury claim against the negligent party, you can seek full compensation for any wages that you have lost or anticipate loosing while you turn your focus on recovering from the accident.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles are cheap on gas, they are affordable and they get you from point A to point B quickly. Unfortunately, all too often the drivers of cars and trucks fail to yield the right of way to the motorcyclists, or they simply don’t see them until it’s too late. Due to the lack of protection, motorcyclists are prone to sustain broken bones, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries in the event of a motorcycle accident.

Pedestrian v. Car Accidents

With the growing number of automobiles on the roads, pedestrians are frequently forced to walk near motor vehicles. Some of the most dangerous locations for pedestrians include crosswalks, parking lots, and driveways, all of which pose a significant risk when the driver isn’t paying attention to their surroundings.

Personal Injuries & Accidents

Personal injury law covers a broad range of accidental injuries which are directly caused by negligent behavior. Our firm handles a variety of personal injury claims including aviation accidents, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, car accidents and motorcycle accidents.

Truck Accidents

While truck accidents are less common than car accidents, big rig or semi truck accidents can cause a significant amount of property damage, not to mention serious injuries due to the size and weight of the eighteen-wheeler. Truck driver negligence may involve violating the hours of service laws, drunk driving, reckless driving, texting while driving, or driving with an overloaded truck.

Types of Car Accidents

Car accidents vary widely, they can involve a head-on collision, a rear-end collision, or t-boning. The victims can involve another driver, a motorcyclist, a bicyclist, or even a pedestrian who was at the wrong place at the wrong time. However, virtually all car accidents include the element of negligence.

Unpaid Medical Bills

When you are involved in any type of auto accident, your ambulance and medical bills can run into the tens of thousands in the blink of an eye. Fortunately, filing a personal injury claim against the negligent party’s insurance carrier can usually compensate you for those medical bills, that way you don’t have to worry about footing the bill on your own.

Wrongful Death

When someone dies in an auto accident, certain individuals such as their spouse or dependents have the right to file a wrongful death claim against the person responsible for the death. A wrongful death settlement can provide compensation for medical bills, funeral costs, and loss of income and support the person would have provided if they were still alive.

Why Hire an Attorney?

While you can represent yourself in a personal injury claim, the last thing you want to worry about is haggling with low-ball insurance adjusters when you’re vulnerable and in the hospital recovering or at home recovering from your injuries. By hiring a seasoned personal injury attorney, your chances of receiving maximum compensation are far greater than if you opted to handle it alone.

Aviation Accident Attorney

Airplane and Aviation Accidents

The FAA expects air travel to double in the next 20 years. With so many more people taking to the skies, and more planes in the air, it is likely that there will be more accidents. For the most part, flying is a safe means of transportation, but, understandably, when accidents happen the result is often catastrophic with fatalities occurring. Additionally, we do not always hear about less serious accidents in smaller, private aircraft because many of these events are unreported.

Whether you are flying in a commercial jet, a small private plane or on a helicopter, you are putting your trust in the airline, pilots, flight crew, mechanics and air traffic controllers to keep you safe until you land at your destination. If you or someone you love has been harmed or suffered a wrongful death in an aviation accident, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries or loss. A skilled aviation accident attorney from our firm will fight to recover the full damages that your case merits.

Common Causes of Aviation Accidents

The FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) and the NTSB (National Transportation Safety Board) are the organizations whose responsibility is to investigate aviation accidents and monitor air transportation. Some of the most common causes of aviation accidents are due to disregard for FAA and NTSB regulations and guidelines. Other causes include:

Faulty equipment

Mechanical failures

Pilot or flight crew mistakes

Hazardous material aboard the aircraft

Structural design defects

Improper fueling or maintenance

Negligence or mistakes by federal air traffic controllers

A thorough investigation of the circumstances of your accident is vital to obtaining the monies you are entitled to. We will obtain all relevant airplane manufacturer documents, airline records and FAA reports and use them to ascertain why the accident occurred. We have access to aviation experts who are knowledgeable about all aspects of aviation operations, maintenance and accidents. Our goal is to achieve justice for you, and for those loved ones that you have lost. Contact an aviation accident lawyer today for a free initial consultation.

 

 

What to do After an Accident

No one ever expects to be in an accident. When one occurs, knowing what to do after the incident can be extremely important. If you are involved in an accident, the first action to take is to ensure anyone that has been injured receives proper medical treatment. Even if you believe you weren’t seriously hurt, it is still a good idea to get a checked out by a health care professional. The police should also be contacted so that the scene can be properly documented, including identifying all of the individuals involved in the accident, and any witnesses that saw what occurred. If you have a cell phone with a digital camera, take your own pictures as well from as many different angles as possible. A  personal injury lawyer should also be contacted, especially if you suffered injuries and the accident was not your fault. A capable attorney will know how to conduct a thorough investigation of the accident to find out who was responsible for the incident, and hold them accountable for any damages.
