Unfortunately, accidents do occur despite our best efforts and safety precautions. Because no one can predict the actions and choices of other motorists, the road is inherently dangerous.

Trucking Accident

A road trip, family vacation, or even just a drive to work can quickly turn into a nightmare when you are involved in a trucking accident. Today’s trucks are so large that most accidents result in totaling the vehicle that they collide with as well as injuring both drivers in the crash. Many times, it is the commercial vehicle that is at fault. The cause of such auto accidents can be alcohol abuse, reckless driving, mechanical failure, negligent truckers, and overloaded vehicles. Unless you are a commercial driver, none of these reasons are within your responsibility or control.

SEEK EXPERT HELP

After a traumatic experience like a trucking accident, it can be difficult to know what decisions to make to protect yourself. Emotions can run high post collision, and it can be hard to think straight for days after experiencing an auto accident due to the emotional trauma that was inflicted during the wreck. If you have been the innocent victim of such a crash, it is paramount that you seek legal representation to stand up for your rights. A crash with a commercial vehicle usually entitles you to compensation that will help pay for the damages of your personal automobile as well as your medical bills. Just remember that professional help can save you a lot of money, and the sooner you seek guidance the better.

Medical

The relationship between a doctor and their patient is a confidential one and one that is based on trust. When that trust is violated and that relationship is broken, the results can be truly devastating. When a medical professional exhibits negligence while providing care to a patient, it is considered medical malpractice. In some cases, victims of medical malpractice are entitled to receive compensation for the hardships they have endured at the hands of a hospital or medical professional.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicycles are gaining increased popularity in the United States because they provide a wealth of benefits for cyclists and the environment. Riding a bike instead of driving an automobile saves on gas expenses, boosts health, and even decreases emissions that would harm our environment.

BICYCLE RISKS

Despite the wealth of benefits we gain from riding a bike, there are inherent risks, too. Imprudent drivers pose a threat to cyclists that can cause personal injury. Last year alone there were approximately 750 casualties and about 50,000 injuries that resulted from bike related accidents. Sometimes a leisurely bike ride can become a horrific ordeal when you least expect it. Negligent drivers can cause significant harm to cyclists because they were texting on their phone, changing the radio station, or speeding recklessly. These careless mistakes can even result in fatality. A cyclist who has been the victim of a careless driver has rights, rights that we fight to defend. If you were in a bike-related accident and sustained personal injury but aren’t sure what to do next, consider seeking the help of a qualified and professional law expert.

We do not charge a penny for an initial consultation, so you have nothing to lose.

Dog Bites

Each year, approximately four and half million people sustain injuries due to dog bites within the United States, and about twenty percent of those that sustain an injury require medical attention. Unfortunately, some victims even require costly reconstructive surgery. Most sufferers are likely entitled to reparations to alleviate the pain that was inflicted and to help ease the recovery process.

WHO IS LIABLE?

We can help determine liability to legally protect you from costly and undue medical expenditures to make sure that you are not paying hefty medical bills caused by someone else’s negligence. Despite the fact that the injuries were not the fault of the victim, a surprisingly low number of these victims actually gain restitution from insurance companies and property owners because they simply didn’t pick up the phone to seek help. The pain of personal injury is distressing enough without piling medical expenses on top of your predicament. Seek the help of a qualified personal injury specialist to make sure you get the protection that you deserve. Our mission is to aid by minimizing losses that result from vicious dog bites.
