A large number of these injuries and fatalities are due to driver negligence or recklessness, resulting in motor vehicle collisions. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in an auto accident, you may have the right to compensation. Before making any statements to the insurance company, it is important to speak with an experienced car and truck accidents lawyer, so you fully understand your rights and options.

We put our extensive experience to work to effectively counter these tactics, so our clients are in a position to receive the full compensation they deserve.

Common Reasons for Car and Truck Accidents

There are numerous causes for motor vehicle crashes. Some of the most common include:

  • Speeding
  • Reckless Driving
  • Distracted Driving
  • Driving While Drowsy
  • Mechanical Defects
  • Poor Weather

Accidents involving commercial trucks are some of the most deadly. Sadly, many truck accidents are the result of the driver or trucking company cutting corners because of pressure to deliver their loads on time. When this occurs, our lawyers perform thorough investigations early on to ensure that all critical evidence is preserved and those responsible are held fully accountable.

What to Do After a Motor Vehicle Accident

After an auto accident, the insurance company for the other party will often ask you to give a recorded statement about the incident, or they may give you a settlement offer before you have a chance to fully assess your injuries. Prior to entertaining any offer from an insurance company, you must consider several questions, including:

  • How will you pay for ongoing medical expenses?
  • How much time have you missed from work?
  • Do you have a disability that might keep you from returning to work?
  • What about the emotional pain and suffering you and your family have endured as a result of the accident?
