Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable
I have handled auto accidents of all types in my 25-plus years of practice, including:
Car wrecks (intersection collisions, rear-end, rollover)
Truck accidents (18-wheelers, delivery trucks, etc.)
Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
Proving who was at fault is critical to your personal injury compensation. I conduct a prompt and thorough investigation to show how the other driver caused or contributed to your accident. Was the driver distracted by a cellphone or a pet in the car? Violating traffic laws? Impaired by alcohol or drugs? Driving too fast in a residential or business zone?
Holding Trucking Companies Accountable
Collisions with large trucks are more prone to cause serious and catastrophic injuries to the occupants of smaller vehicles. These can be tough cases because of the high stakes and complex accident investigations. The trucking firms and their insurers will try every tactic to deny blame or limit your compensation. I know how to investigate 18-wheeler accidents and other commercial vehicle crashes. I am also knowledgeable about the special regulations that apply to tractor-trailers and truck drivers, such as weight limits and restrictions on hours behind the wheel. If the employer or driver has violated these rules, I will hold them responsible for the resulting mayhem in my client’s life.
