Common Causes of Car and Truck Accidents

Driver error, influenced by one or more of the following, is the cause of most traffic violations leading to motor vehicle accidents and especially trucking accidents.

  • Fatigued, drowsy, distracted or inattentive driving
  • Driving at excessive speeds
  • Disregarding weather conditions
  • Intoxication or other drug use
  • Aggressive driving
  • Inadequate training or lack of experience
  • Improperly loaded or overloaded cargo
  • Driving a truck that has not had proper maintenance

While we can make no guarantee of the amount you will recover if we handle your case, you should know that we will do whatever we can to make sure you get the compensation you deserve for a serious personal injury, automobile accident, 18-wheeler accident, truck accident, motorcycle accident or wrongful death case.

Fighting To Ensure You Receive

If you were injured in an auto accident, you have the right to seek compensation for the suffering that you have experienced as a result of your car crash. A lawyer can help you receive the maximum amount possible.

Our job is to fight to make sure you receive a fair, favorable and just amount from an insurance or trucking company. It is important to hire an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after the accident to allow for an early investigation. Obtaining the necessary information and evidence as soon as possible helps our firm prepare your claim to bring against a trucking company or its insurance carrier.

You might be offered an initial settlement from the at-fault driver’s insurance company shortly after your accident. Do not accept any offer or speak to any insurance representative without first discussing your case with our firm. These initial offers are typically well below the value of our clients’ claims.

We prepare each and every personal injury case we handle as if it is going to trial. With a proven track record for million-dollar verdicts and multimillion-dollar settlements, we have handled several thousand personal injury cases to settlement and are not afraid of going to trial, when necessary.
