Motor Vehicle Accidents Are Rarely Just Accidents
Every year, tens of thousands of people in the United States are killed in accidents caused by careless drivers. Hundreds of thousands more suffer painful and debilitating injuries. While today’s cars and trucks are equipped with more safety features than ever, today’s drivers are also more distracted than ever, and many continue to engage in dangerous driving behaviors like speeding and driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Accidents rarely happen just by accident. In most cases, a driver chose to engage in behavior that endangered the lives of other people. Here are just a few examples:
- Talking or texting on a cellphone while driving
- Getting behind the wheel after drinking alcohol or using drugs
- Speeding or driving recklessly
- Driving too fast for weather conditions
- Not paying attention to traffic signs or signals

The Strong Legal Representation You Need To Get Results
The civil justice system can make unsafe drivers and their insurance companies pay — but only if you act promptly. It’s important to contact a lawyer as soon as possible. Every accident that results in injury must be thoroughly examined and investigated to collect and preserve evidence of liability. Our lawyers work with skilled investigators and accident reconstruction experts who can collect cellphone records, witness statements and other evidence that can be crucial in proving your case.
Our attorneys are skilled negotiators who are often able to recover just compensation for your injuries and personal and financial losses outside of court. In cases where an insurance company plays hardball and is not willing to provide the compensation you deserve, we do not shy away from taking your case to court.
