Motor Vehicle Cases We Handle
ATVs or “all-terrain vehicles” are commonly used for recreation and by nature are equipped with low-pressure tires and typically 4 wheels. Most ATVs are intended to be ridden by one operator. Unfortunately, recreation can sometimes lead to an accident.
Bicycle & Pedestrian Accidents
Many bicycle and pedestrian accidents are caused by the negligence of passenger vehicle drivers, although there are a variety of different causes. These accidents often result in catastrophic injuries.
Depending on the type of bus, these types of accident claims can be filed against the city or private bus operator. Injuries can be incurred while riding on a bus, traveling in a vehicle or as a pedestrian.
Three types of distracted driving are recognized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA): visual, manual and cognitive. By far, the most common kind of distracted driving that results in avoidable accidents is cell phone use while driving.
Drunk Driving Accidents
It is illegal to operate a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 percent or higher. Having alcohol in your system impairs the ability to operate a vehicle safely. This leads to thousands of injuries and deaths each year.
Hit & Run Accidents
Some of the most tragic types of accidents involve the driver leaving the scene. By law, individuals are required to stay at the scene and exchange information until law enforcement and ambulances can arrive (if necessary).
Uninsured / UIM Motorists
Uninsured and underinsured (UM/UIM) motorist claims apply to those individuals who were involved in an accident with a driver who was either uninsured or underinsured. In some cases, the UM/UIM clause applies to those who were involved in hit-and-run accidents.
This is among one of the more serious types of motor vehicle collisions. If a car is hit at just the right angle, it can go into a spin and roll over.
In some car accidents, the vehicle is damaged in such a way that it combusts. If you were injured in a vehicle fire, it is likely that you are suffering from burn injuries.
