Car accidents — We deal with the insurance companies, including your own insurer if the other driver was uninsured or underinsured. We document your injuries and property damage, and work with professionals to calculate lost earnings, future medical care and compensation for any permanent injury.
Truck accidents — We know the questions to ask and the evidence to secure to hold trucking companies accountable for the devastating injuries of a truck crash. We examine driver logbooks — was he speeding to make a deadline or fatigued from driving too many hours? We look into the trucker's criminal and driving history. We inspect the wreckage for evidence of poor maintenance or improper weight or loading of freight.
Motorcycle accidents — Reconstructing the scene can be critical to overcoming the bias against motorcycle riders. We use experienced investigators to show that the driver failed to yield the right of way, tailgated, pulled out or otherwise was at fault.
Bicycle or pedestrian accidents — The defense will blame the victim. We work to locate witnesses and analyze the crash scene to show that the driver was inattentive, violating traffic laws or otherwise negligent.
Fatal car accidents — In a wrongful death lawsuit, we seek compensation to replace the lost income of your loved one, as well as damages for the deceased's pain and suffering and the survivors' loss of companionship, support and services.
