Were you injured in a hit and run accident?

A hit and run accident may involve two motor vehicles, a motor vehicle and a bicyclist or motorcycle rider, or a motor vehicle and a pedestrian. It is illegal for anyone to leave the scene of an accident. If a driver flees the scene of an accident he can be charged with a serious crime, so it is vital that the police are contacted. Depending upon the circumstances involved, the hit and run driver may be charged with a misdemeanor or, if the person struck was killed, with a felony. There are numerous reasons why a driver chooses not to remain at the scene of an accident, including:

Fear of getting caught and paying for the consequences.

Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Having a warrant out for his/her arrest.

Possessing a stolen vehicle.

Being in possession of stolen property or drugs.

If you have been the victim of a hit and run, do not give up hope. The first thing to do after the accident is to obtain medical attention. Back and neck or head injuries do not always show up immediately and may even worsen as time goes on, causing long term disabilities. The second thing to do is to contact a car accident lawyer from our firm. We can help you recover compensation from your own insurance company for medical treatment, lost wages, and future expenses.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyer

Motorcycle Accident Injuries

With the rising cost of fuel, coupled with the economic downturn in recent years, motorcycles offer a number of benefits to Americans. Not only are they significantly less expensive than passenger sized cars and trucks, but they use far less gas, and they can make getting home during 5:00 rush hour a piece of cake.

Whether you drive a motorcycle because it’s more affordable and convenient, or if riding a motorcycle is a part of who you are, while there are many conveniences associated with riding, unfortunately drivers of automobiles have a problem yielding the right of way to motorcycle riders, which can spell disaster for the motorcyclist due to their overall lack of protection.

Of the many types of motor vehicle accidents that occur in the United States each year, motorcycle accidents are often amongst the most injurious, and the most deadly. Unlike those riding in cars, trucks, or other passenger vehicles, motorcycle riders are without any of the standard safety protections such as seatbelts or airbags. In best-case scenarios, they are fitted only with a helmet, boots, gloves, and riding leathers. Unfortunately, in most cases riders are not wearing all of these safety items, which leaves them extremely vulnerable to serious injuries and even death in the event of an accident.

It has been reported by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that motorcycle riders are 37 times more likely to be killed in an accident than those in passenger vehicles, as well as 9 times more likely to be injured. These injuries can include internal injuries, broken bones, lacerations, abrasions, brain or spinal cord damage, and coma.

If you have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is your right to seek injury compensation from those responsible. Contact a motorcycle accident lawyer who can significantly better your chances of obtaining that compensation by providing you with high quality, aggressive representation in your case.

Pedestrian vs. Car Accidents

Pedestrian Accident Lawyer

There are a large number of dangerous pedestrian accidents in the area, many of which result in serious injuries and even death. Unfortunately, in many cases children or the elderly are the victims in these accidents. If the victim survives the accident, they often have very severe injuries and may take many months to recover. Often the innocent victim is thrown into the roadway and subsequently run over by a speeding vehicle, causing crushed limbs and internal organ damage. Traumatic brain injuries are also common.

In any pedestrian accident it is vital to contact a car accident lawyer to assist in the process of seeking compensation. The medical costs can be in the hundreds of thousands of dollars in many cases, as extensive medical intervention must take place in order to try to keep the victim alive and get them back into a condition of good health. Sadly, in many cases the injured victim will never enjoy the quality of life they had prior to the accident, and the losses to their life and future must be addressed in a civil claim against the liable party.

Pedestrian Injury Accidents

Many drivers rush through intersections at a speed that is extremely dangerous, especially to pedestrians that are walking in the area. One may consider that if there is a crosswalk that they are safe to cross; this is not necessarily true, as even with traffic lights, stop signs, well marked crosswalks and laws, there are negligent drivers who consider that they have the right of way and are in a hurry, or not paying attention, or in some cases, drunk. The innocent pedestrian steps off the curb without knowing that a negligent, speeding or drunk driver is in the area and the result can be a devastating injury accident.

In such cases, the legal process involving seeking compensation for damages should begin early after the injury accident. Although this may be difficult to consider when a loved one is seriously injured, it is important to carefully and fully document all aspects of the case as early as possible, including witness statements, police reports, medical records and others. When a large claim or lawsuit is filed it is very helpful to have all documentation of the incident so that the process moves smoothly through the system and the settlement can get paid without difficulty. A full analysis of the current and future medical costs, loss of quality of life, as well as any other financial losses and other damages must be included in the claim.

We want our injured loved one to have the finest medical care and treatment and have access to newer treatments as they are released. Having the finances available is necessary, particularly when another person was responsible for the injury. Our legal team is prepared to fight to recover maximum compensation in pedestrian injury accident cases.
