Handling All Types of Car Accidents

Our firm stands up for the rights of victims of all types of motor vehicle accidents, including:

  • Drunk driving accidentsWhen a drunk driver causes an accident, the injuries suffered by the other drivers and passengers can be devastating. We are aggressive in our pursuit of compensation.
  • Distracted driving accidentsIf a driver hit you while he or she was talking on a cellphone, texting while driving, or was otherwise distracted, you may have grounds upon which to file a personal injury claim.
  • Rear-end collisionsWhen you are rear-ended, the other driver is nearly always responsible. We can represent you in taking action against the other driver’s negligence that caused your injuries and losses.
  • Head-on crashes: Whether the other driver was distracted, fell asleep at the wheel or just drifted over the center line, a head-on collision can leave drivers and passengers catastrophically and fatally injured. We handle all types of injuries stemming from a head-on crash.
  • Hit-and-runs: It can be frustrating to deal with a hit-and-run, not knowing who caused the accident. Our firm is committed to helping clients understand their rights to compensation from their own insurance company as well as finding the driver who left the scene of the accident.
  • Broadside (t-bone) accidents: Being broadsided can often leave a driver or passenger severely injured, especially if the accident occurred in an intersection and involved multiple vehicles. Our firm works closely with clients to see that the negligent parties are held responsible for your injuries.
  • Rollover crashes:When a vehicle rolls over as the result of a collision, the injuries can be substantial, especially if the roof crushes or caves-in. We can help you seek compensation for the injuries you have suffered in a rollover accident.
