Our Areas of Practice:
- Bicycle accidents: Due to their lack of outer protection, bicyclists who are injured in accidents, especially accidents involving motor vehicles, are more prone to serious injuries that can include spinal cord and neck injuries and head and brain trauma. Bicyclists have many of the same rights to use the road as cars, which many drivers don’t acknowledge.
- Car accidents: One of the leading causes of injuries in the United States, car accidents are mainly caused by human errors like distracted driving, reckless driving, drunk driving, and fatigued driving. Common types of car accidents include rear-end accidents, which can occur as a result of tailgating or failure to brake quickly, and head-on collisions, which are extremely dangerous and cause serious injuries and fatalities.
- Drunk driving accidents: Those who drive while drunk put themselves and everyone around them on the road at risk, from other drivers to nearby bicyclists and pedestrians. Intoxication blurs vision, slows reaction times, and impairs judgment, all of which can contribute to reckless driving that causes accidents, injuries, and deaths.
- Motorcycle accidents: Motorcyclists are also more susceptible to catastrophic injuries after motor vehicle accidents. Because they share the road with cars and are smaller, they are often more difficult to notice by drivers who aren’t alert. Cars often injured motorcyclists when they fail to see them in their blind spots before merging or changing lanes.
- Pedestrian accidents: Pedestrians can be seriously harmed by drivers who fail to yield to them when they’re crossing the street or walking alongside the road, but cars can also strike nearby pedestrians in driveways and in parking lots if they’re not careful and actively checking their mirrors and blind spots.
- Truck accidents: Truck accidents cause some of the most devastating injuries as a result of their size, weight, and force. Overloaded cargo can contribute to an accident, as well as other unique commercial factors such as inspection failures, manufacturing issues, or driver fatigue, as commercial truckers often have to drive long distances through the night.
