Motor Vehicle Accident Cases We Handle

Car Accidents

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), motor vehicle accidents are one of the leading causes of injury in the U.S. But many car accident victims can suffer more than just injuries; there are also aggressive insurance companies that will deny, delay, or underpay an auto accident injury claim. Our top-notch litigators know how to develop smart legal strategies and understand the intricacies involved.

Truck Accidents

As large as commercial trucks are, accidents involving them are just as complex. There could be multiple causes, such as excessive or unsecured cargo, driver inexperience, or fatigue from too many hours on the road. On a steep road, a semi-truck’s tractor and trailer could fold in on one another, causing a jackknife accident. In addition, several different parties could bear liability for a truck accident victim’s injuries and damages.

Motorcycle Accidents

When motorcycle riders try to recover compensation after an accident caused by someone else’s negligence, they often face difficulties and obstacles. They frequently suffer catastrophic injuries, which can make lawsuits or settlements more complicated, as compensation may need to include future anticipated losses. Further, insurance companies try to avoid liability by relying on stereotypes about motorcyclists being reckless or dangerous; this requires additional evidence to prove how the other party is at fault for the collision.

Taxi Accidents

Passengers in taxis are twice as likely to suffer serious injuries in accidents than those involved in car-to-car accidents. That’s because when a taxi crashes or stops suddenly, the passenger can sustain head, face, and upper body injuries from the partition between the passenger and the taxi driver. Also, different parties could be responsible for your compensation; these include the driver, the company running the taxi service, and the insurance carriers representing each of them.

Uber, Lyft and Rideshare Accidents

Rideshare services aren’t regulated like taxis and public transportation, so there’s an intricate legal dynamic between companies like Uber and Lyft and the drivers who work for them. Liability is not always straightforward; for example, if you are involved in an Uber accident, it matters whether you are a passenger or if the rideshare driver hits you while they are on their way to pick up a passenger. Further, if a driver isn’t screened, the company could hold the blame for an accident.

Limo Accidents

When it comes to for-hire vehicles like limousines, New York has some of the toughest rules in the country. But that doesn’t mean accidents involving limos and party buses don’t happen here; for-hire drivers can still cause serious, even fatal accidents due to drunk or distracted driving or other negligence. Limousines are operated commercially, and our attorneys are skilled at evaluating whether companies and their drivers complied – or failed to comply – with applicable regulations and legal duties.
