Handling Cases Stemming from a Variety of Accidents
Each personal injury case will differ depending on the circumstances that caused the injury—specifically, the type of accident that occurred. If an accident happens because another person was negligent, injured victims have the right to seek compensation for all of their losses.
Many types of accidents can lead to personal injury claims. Our firm regularly handles cases involving the following:
Car accidents – The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that about 2.4 million people sustained injuries in traffic accidents in one year in the U.S. Many of these injuries are serious and can change the course of a victim’s life. Car accidents are often caused by negligent drivers, but can also occur due to dangerous roads, defective auto parts, and other factors.
Truck accidents – According to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA), an estimated 476,000 truck accidents occur on an annual basis. Large commercial trucks are much larger and heavier than any other vehicle on the road, which means that a collision between a car and truck can result in devastating or often fatal injuries.
Motorcycle accidents – Motorcyclists are typically aware of the risks of riding and take safety precautions; however, it is impossible to control the actions of other drivers. Drivers are often too distracted to see a motorcycle or are driving in a careless manner that results in a dangerous crash. Motorcyclists have little protection from an impact, which means they can sustain severe injuries.
Pedestrian accidents – Anytime you are walking anywhere near traffic, there is a risk that a car could crash into you and cause you serious injuries. Pedestrians often suffer multiple traumatic injuries as they may have different points of impact with a car, the ground, or other objects. Often, pedestrians are hit by drivers who are distracted, drunk, or not following traffic laws.
Bicycle accidents – Whether you ride your bike to work or school every day or simply ride for recreation once in a while, you should be aware that many drivers do not properly share the road. Even with a helmet, the chances are high that you could sustain life-changing injuries if hit by a car while riding your bike.
No matter what type of accident occurred, please do not hesitate to contact our office to learn how we can help you today.

Helping Clients Recover Financially after a Personal Injury
When you think of a personal injury case, you may immediately think of a trial in court. However, most cases are resolved outside of a courtroom. Our priority is to resolve your claim in the most efficient way possible while still ensuring you receive the full amount you deserve.
The following are only some ways that our experienced personal injury law firm can help you:
- Evaluate whether you can hold another party or parties responsible for your injuries
- Investigate and gather evidence to prove the cause of your accident
- Determine the value of your losses including medical expenses, costs of future care, lost income, future lost earnings, pain and suffering, and permanent disability or disfigurement, among others
- Handle the insurance process if applicable in your case, including reviewing and negotiating any settlement offers
- Identify and advise when an insurance claim will be insufficient to cover all of your losses
- Negotiate to obtain a favorable settlement offer from the liable party
If necessary, file a personal injury claim on your behalf in civil court, represent you at trial, and navigate the entire litigation process
Obtaining compensation for your injury-related losses can be a complex and time-consuming process. We believe that your focus should be on your physical recovery and putting your life back together after your accident, so we make this process as stress-free for you as possible. You can count on our legal team to protect your rights.
