Types of Vehicle Accidents

No matter how it happens, vehicle accidents are scary and no two are the same. Our attorneys handle them all.

Personal Car  Accidents

In an accident with another personal vehicle, you will be dealing with their insurance company. If the other driver was at fault, you should contact legal assistance before speaking with or giving anything to an insurance company. Rarely do they have your best interest at heart, as they are looking to pay the least amount of money possible. If you are the victim of a hit-and-run or hit by a driver with no insurance, we can help you with your next steps.

Collisions With Commercial Trucks

Getting hit by a commercial truck can be devastating. These large trucks usually weigh much more than regular vehicles and can cause damage and injuries too many on the roadway at once. In the aftermath of an accident, you will want to know if the driver was properly trained and if the truck was adequately maintained. If the company skipped corners or their driver was reckless, you could be owed compensation beyond what insurance is willing to cover.

Motorcycle Accidents

If you are one of the many motorcycle enthusiasts we have in Texas, we know you take steps to be safe on the roadway. Unfortunately, many drivers are reckless when they are around motorcyclists. Motorcycle accidents can be particularly devastating because a cyclist doesn’t have the same protection as a person in a vehicle.

Ridesharing Services

With the rise of ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft, we are seeing more and more incidences of their drivers getting into accidents. While most rides are safe, we know that these drivers are not as regulated as a taxi or public transportation drivers. Now, ridesharing companies are beginning to deliver food as well. If you are in an accident caused by a ridesharing driver, we will help you figure out your next steps.

Pedestrian and Bicycle Accidents

Sometimes, you aren’t even in a vehicle when an accident happens. We love walking and biking the streets in and around Dallas, but reckless drivers can cause devastating injuries if they hit a pedestrian or a cyclist.

A Negligent Driver

Many accidents that are caused by someone else are really just accidents. Maybe, they didn’t see a yield sign or didn’t check their blind spot. In other cases, the behavior of drivers rises to be negligent and reckless. If a driver is impaired by drugs or alcohol, they are much more likely to cause accidents that lead to injuries or fatalities.

With more and more technology coming into our lives, drivers are often distracted. Many people think that it is harmless to look at or send a quick text, but taking their eyes off the road for just a few seconds can have deadly consequences.

Injuries and Insurance

Injuries from a car accident can put you in the hospital. Common injuries range from bruises to broken bones. Sometimes, major internal injuries and head trauma occur. If you have to have surgery to repair damage, the recovery process may be long. Sometimes, rehabilitation may be necessary. If you need long-term care or are disabled, your ability to work may be curtailed.

All of this could put you and your family in financial jeopardy. While insurance may cover some of your costs, it may not cover lost income or cover your long-term care needs.
