Defensive driving may not be enough
Every time you are in a motor vehicle you are subject to the possibility another driver may make a serious error in judgment, may be talking or texting on the phone, or may have an equipment failure that puts you in the middle of a devastating vehicle accident. Whether you live in a city encountering thousands of cars, trucks, and motorcycles in a day, or in the country with a dozen vehicles, accidents happen. One accident can drastically change or take away your life, or the life of a loved one, forever.
When a serious accident occurs, talk to a qualified, experienced attorney before signing any insurance waivers. It’s understandable that you’re facing many decisions on top of the injuries, but as medical bills and debt accumulate, it’s critical that you have an attorney working for your benefit. We not only take your case to court, we make sure on-site evidence is taken and preserved; we interact with insurance companies limiting your calls and paperwork; and we guard your interests in all negotiations – from medical providers, to insurance companies, to other involved parties. We protect you from the chaos and confusion that makes it easy for you to be convinced to take less money than you’ll need as you recover from your injuries and lost wages.
If your accident involved serious injury or death, call us – we want to work for you to get the justice and compensation you need and deserve.

Trucks and Commercial Vehicles
There are laws to protect drivers and pedestrians from negligence from a commercial driver or from company oversight. Often these accidents involve trucks. Trucks can cause some of the most serious wrecks because of their sheer size and weight.
Most truckers are hard-working individuals, but because of that, they are often on the road long hours and are subject to driver fatigue – a condition that can lead to inattention, improper lane changes and turns, and even falling asleep at the wheel. Other issues such as poor maintenance, incorrectly positioned mirrors, or a cargo that is overloaded or loaded improperly can contribute to devastating accidents.
We aggressively pursue all avenues, including preservation of the accident scene, review of the logbook and any federal trucking regulations in seeking justice for you and your family.
