Bus accidents

Most trucking accidents occur at high speeds on the highway. But even low-speed trucking accidents can have catastrophic results. A fully loaded truck can weigh 80,000 pounds while the average car weighs 3,000 pounds. Based on sheer size and weight, injuries are likely to be severe when an accident occurs. In presenting your claim, our skilled attorneys assess the physical, emotional, and financial losses that resulted from the accident to ensure that you are fairly compensated.

Train accidents

Trains carry so much cargo and travel at such high speeds that the end-result of any accident—no matter how minor—can be catastrophic injury or even death. We represent victims of head-on collisions and train derailment. Our attorneys can help to determine if the railroad company was at fault and could have prevented the accident and the resulting injuries. We are familiar with the complex laws involved with successfully bringing your case to trial. We have taken on Federal Employer Liability Act (FELA) cases, and won. Talk to our lawyers about your train accident case.

Boating accidents

According to the United States Coast Guard, approximately 70% of all reported fatalities occurr on boats where the operator had not received boating safety instruction. If Your accident injuries are the fault of another’s negligence or faulty equipment, you may be entitled to compensation. The attorneys in our firm represent clients who were seriously injured while boating, fishing, or sailing on a personal watercraft.

Airplane accidents

Flying is still one of the safest ways to travel. But when mistakes happen, passenger’s lives are lost. Those who survive often endure severe injuries. The laws that apply to aviation are complex. Privately owned airplanes involved in accidents are subject to laws similar to that of an auto accident. If the cause of the accident can be traced to equipment or system malfunction, the manufacturer could also be liable. However, if the injury occurred in a commercial airliner, an entirely different set of rules apply. Our attorneys can guide you through the complex process of filing your claim and proving your case.personal injury attorneys
