Catastrophic Personal Injury
Many of the seriously injured clients we serve haven’t had a chance to heal emotionally because they haven’t healed physically. Part of our job as personal injury lawyers is to help them begin the healing process.

The worst crash injuries are caused by speed and mass. For this reason, accidents involving massive vehicles such as tractor-trailers, dump trucks, commercial vehicles, buses, and trains are more likely to result in serious injuries and deaths than any other type of accident.
Almost all accidents involving motorcycles result in serious injuries for the motorcycle driver as well as for any passenger who was riding on the bike. The most important thing you can do if you or a loved one is injured in a motorcycle crash is to hire a lawyer immediately to investigate the scene and secure evidence to prove fault and identify potential defendants.
Highway Defect Liability
One common type of road defect that can lead to serious accidents is road shoulder drop-off. If a driver should happen to leave the roadway and attempts to get back on, the large drop-off from the roadway to the shoulder can cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle. In the worst- case scenario, the driver crosses the center line and hits oncoming traffic. Many other defects are due to errors in construction or maintenance.
