When we think of motor vehicle accidents the first thing that usually comes to mind is your run-of-the-mill auto accident, but there are many other types of vehicle accidents and the type of accident in which you were injured can make a big difference in how your case must be handled and who can be held responsible. When hiring a motor vehicle accident lawyer, you want to look for one who has experience with the type of accident you were involved in. Please talk to one of the experienced motor vehicle accident attorneys listed in our database to learn more about your rights.
Accidents involving one or more passenger vehicles may be a common occurrence, but that makes them no less harmful, and some of these cases turn out to be much more complex than you might expect. Examples of elements which can complicate your case include:
- Severe and catastrophic injuries
- Defective vehicle
- Defective roadway
- Hit and run
- Drunk driver
- Underage driver
Trucking accident lawsuits are, by nature, more complex than auto accidents. Federal and state trucking regulations always play a role in these cases. Trucking accidents often involve multiple victims and severe injuries. There can also be multiple responsible parties. In cases where the truck driver is to blame for the accident, the trucking company can usually be held financially responsible.
Motorcycle accidents pose unique challenges that we rarely face in other types of motor vehicle accidents. Hit and run is common, and so are single vehicle motorcycle accidents. Because victims are often knocked unconscious and there may not be any witnesses, a hit and run may at first appear to be a single vehicle accident.
Those who survive motorcycle accidents are far more likely to sustain catastrophic injuries than those injured in an enclosed vehicle accident, and need maximum compensation to cover the lifetime costs of injuries such as brain or spinal cord injury. Unfortunately, bikers still face prejudice and need a dedicated attorney to advocate for their right to fair compensation.
