Personal injury cases frequently involve motor vehicle accidents. Many car wrecks can be classified as simple fender-benders, but sometimes an accident can be life-altering. Victims commonly experience significant injury, pain and suffering, emotional anguish, staggering medical bills, lost wages due to disability, and sometimes the tragic death of a loved one.
Many victims of automobile accidents are uninformed as to what their rights are and the value of their claims. They accept the first offer the insurance company gives them, unaware that the insurance company is trying their hardest to settle the case as quickly as possible and for as little money as possible. Blake Bailey is a qualified and experienced personal injury attorney who will get to know your situation and help you regain control of your life by fighting for the financial compensation you deserve.
On average 35,000 people die each year in car accidents with an additional 2 million injured or disabled. Frequent causes of car accidents are drunk driving, reckless driving, talking on the phone, texting while driving, and other types of negligent behavior. Car accidents are traumatic events that can lead to severe and debilitating injuries such as paralysis, whiplash, chronic pain, broken bones, and burns.
If you are injured in a car accident, the damages you can recover include; medical expenses, pain and suffering, physical impairment, lost wages because of the injury, and property damage. You can also file a wrongful death claim if you have lost a loved one in a car accident.
If you or someone you love was injured in a car accident, it is important to have an experienced and dedicated attorney on your side.
Motorcycle accidents may cause serious or catastrophic injuries such as broken bones, disfigurement, paralysis, and brain injury. These injuries are often much more severe than injuries sustained in car crashes. Many times motorcycle accidents happen because the driver failed to see the motorcyclist on the road.
In every motorcycle accident the key issue is determining who is at fault and whether the accident resulted from someone’s negligence. Negligence is defined as a failure to act as a reasonably prudent person under the circumstances. If the plaintiff can show that the other person acted negligently, and that his/her negligence caused foreseeable injury, then the plaintiff may be entitled to compensation including past and future medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, physical impairment, and property damage. If you or someone you love was involved in a motorcycle accident, it is crucial to investigate the facts and events leading up to the accident when possible.
Due to their immense size and weight, truck accidents have a much higher likelihood of causing serious injuries or even death.
Truck accidents can be caused by negligence by the truck driver or another party. To show negligence, the injured person must show that the defendant breached a duty of due care to the victim, and that the breach was the foreseeable cause of the injury. If the truck driver or trucking company is found to be negligent, then the injured person may seek compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, physical impairment, property damages, and more. Where there is evidence of the defendant’s outrageous conduct, such as alcohol or drug use, the injured person may also be entitled to punitive damages.
Bus accidents are highly traumatic and likely to lead to severe injuries or death due to the sheer size of the vehicle involved. As a result of a bus crash a victim can suffer painful injuries such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, head injuries, burns, and more. These injuries lead to huge medical expenses for the victim and family, emotional pain and suffering, and can even debilitate the victim for life.
The legal issues involved in bus accidents can be complex because some types of buses, (e.g. school buses), are operated by government entities. Establishing who is liable or at fault for the accident can be difficult. If you are involved in a bus accident, it is essential to have an attorney with expertise in personal injury law who can investigate the accident, assess the evidence, and represent your interests most effectively.
