Examples of common personal injury accident scenarios

| Sep 26, 2018 | Firm News, Motorcycle Accidents

An accident caused by another party’s negligence can result in devastating problems for the victims, who due to no fault of their own, suffer serious injuries. These problems relate to pain and suffering, lost wages, medical bills, attorneys’ fees, court costs and more. Fortunately, when an injured victim can prove the fault and liability of the other party, the victim can usually recoup financial compensation for these damages.

At our law firm, it’s our business to represent people injured in accidents like this. Most of our clients have suffered injuries in the most common accident scenarios, which might include situations like the following fictitious examples:

Passenger vehicle accidents

A passenger car driver is lawfully traveling through an intersection when a speeding motorist pushes through a red light and T-bones his or her vehicle. Tragically, the lawful motorist suffers broken ribs, a traumatic brain injury and a broken femur.

Commercial truck accidents

A commercial truck driver is pushing the limits of his or her physical abilities by driving through the night in order to meet his or her employer’s unrealistic deadlines. The truck driver falls asleep behind the wheel and inadvertently causes a fatal crash.

Motorcycle accidents

A motorcycle driver is patiently waiting until it’s safe to drive through an intersection, but a motorist who is distracted by his or her cellphone doesn’t see the waiting biker. The motorist hits the biker, causing the motorcyclist to suffer near-fatal wounds.
