What is a personal injury lawsuit?

A personal injury is a general term describing an injury to the body or mind, rather than injury to property, that someone else may be legally responsible for. When these injuries occur, victims may have outstanding medical bills, lost wages, pain & suffering, or other damages as a direct result of the accident. This results in a situation where the victim has sustained losses due to no fault of their own. Clearly this is not fair to the victim, which is where personal injury laws come into play.

Personal injury laws provide a legal remedy for this exact situation. When a negligent, careless, or reckless individual causes injury to another, the victim can pursue a personal injury lawsuit to recover compensation for their losses. For example, if Driver A runs into Driver B because they were texting while driving, Driver B is entitled to pursue damages against the at-fault party. By proving that the at-fault party’s behavior directly contributed to the victim’s injuries, we are able to hold the at-fault party accountable for their actions.

As Liberty personal injury lawyers, it is our job to establish liability and prove that negligent or reckless behavior caused injury. By proving the four elements of a personal injury claim—duty, breach, causation, and damages—we are able recover maximum compensation for our clients. If you or a loved one has been injured, contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Car Accidents

Car accidents can happen to anyone and can be a very stressful experience. Your whole world can be turned upside down in a matter of seconds through no fault of your own. Not only are these crashes inconvenient, but the effects can be felt long after the initial collision. Many accident victims require extensive medical care and suffer both physically and mentally. Others are unable to return to work for months at a time or are no longer able to provide for themselves or their families. Trying to resolve your claim on your own can be complex and time-consuming, making the whole situation even more frustrating. Fortunately, victims do not have to carry this burden alone.

Our Liberty car accident lawyers have decades of experience helping accident victims get the justice they deserve. We are dedicated to providing our clients with skilled and aggressive legal representation. We have the knowledge and experience to maximize your settlement after an accident and will do all of the heavy lifting so that you can focus on healing. Contact us today for a free case evaluation and discuss your options with an attorney who truly cares about you.

Do I Need An Attorney?

Many people are reluctant to hire an attorney after an accident. Some believe that they can handle the process on their own or think that hiring an attorney is an unnecessary expense. In reality, hiring an experienced attorney is the best way to protect yourself and your livelihood after an accident.

Not only is personal injury law complex, but a study conducted by the Insurance Research Council found that accident victims who hired a lawyer recovered 3.5 times more money in settlement compensation compared to those without legal counsel. Insurance companies know all too well that people are at their most vulnerable after an accident and will try to take advantage of this opportunity. By negotiating with the insurance companies on your own, you may be forfeiting your right to recover fair compensation for your injuries and losses.

Some minor fender benders or other minor accidents can be resolved without an attorney. However, when the accident results in serious injury or death, we would strongly advise consulting with an attorney to discuss your options. Our Liberty car accident lawyers will investigate the accident, build a strong case, and negotiate with the insurance companies to maximize your settlement.

If you are still unsure whether or not hiring a lawyer is in your best interest, contact us for a free case evaluation. You can speak with one of our skilled attorneys free of charge to discuss your legal options to determine the best course of action for you.

Semi-Truck Accidents

A collision between a standard family vehicle and a semi-truck can be devastating. Semi-trucks can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, which is almost twenty times heavier than the average car. On top of that, truckers are placed on strict deadlines and drive up to 10 hours on any given day. This leaves a lot of time for a truck driver to get distracted or for their vehicle to malfunction. Unfortunately, any lapse in concentration or vehicle defect could life-altering for other drivers on the road.

Our Liberty semi-truck accident lawyers have recovered millions for truck accident victims and have over 45 years of experience protecting the rights of our clients. If you or a loved one has been injured in a semi-truck accident, contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Common Causes of Semi-Truck Accidents

Driver Fatigue: As stated above, most truck drivers spend around 10 hours at a time on the road, which translates to roughly 600 miles per day. Since they get paid by the mile, there is an incentive to driver longer distances in shorter periods of time. Even though federal regulations require a certain number of breaks to be taken each shift and limit the number of hours a trucker can drive each day, driver fatigue is still one of the most common causes of semi-truck accidents.

Distracted Driving: Spending hour after hour behind the wheel can be boring to say the least. With all that time behind the wheel, it is only a matter of time before something causes a driver to divert their attention away from the road, even if only for a split-second. They may take a quick glance at their mobile device, change the radio, fiddle with their navigation system, or become fixated on something out in the distance. Whatever the case may be, taking their eyes off of the road at high speeds for a fraction of a second could be the difference between safely arriving at their destination and causing a serious accident.

Driver Error: Driver error is a general term that includes behavior such as failing to check blind spots, following too closely, or making improper turns. Speeding is one of the most common examples of driver error and contributes to thousands of accidents each year. Any time a driver misjudges a potential hazard or fails to safely maneuver their vehicle, they may be held liable for the accident.

Alcohol/Drug Use: Driving under the influence is one of the most dangerous behaviors a trucker can engage in. Bringing these big rigs to a stop or avoiding hazards is difficult enough. Adding alcohol, illicit drugs, or even prescription medication to the mix can be a recipe for disaster. However, this does not stop countless truckers from engaging in these illegal practices.

Poor Driver Training and Truck Maintenance: One of the best ways to prevent accidents and ensure safe driving habits is to provide adequate training before a driver can ever get behind the wheel of these big rigs. However, due to the fact that inexperienced drivers typically charge less per mile, some trucking companies place poorly trained drivers between the wheel well before they are ready.

Owners are also required to perform regular inspections before hitting the road. However, the time and money it takes to perform maintenance checks cuts into their profits, so they are not always as careful as they should be. As a result, driver inexperience, poor training, and poor maintenance are among the biggest causes of truck accidents

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycle accidents are among the most serious cases we handle. Their size and overall lack of protection make them far riskier to operate than other vehicles. Many motorcycle accident victims are left with severe injuries and require extensive medical treatment. The physical toll these accidents take on riders can be quite severe, as can the financial toll. It is not unusual for motorcycle crash victims to spend weeks, months, or even years recovering from their injuries­–racking up thousands in medical bills in the process.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a motorcycle accident, contact our Liberty motorcycle accident lawyers today to discuss your options.

Common Motorcycle Crash Injuries

Even minor collisions can be disastrous for motorcycle riders. The lack of safety measures in place offers little protection in the event of an accident. A motorcycles unenclosed nature causes injuries that are rather unique compared to standard passenger vehicles, including:

  • Broken Bones
  • Road Rash
  • Head & Neck Injuries
  • Chest Injuries
  • Leg & Knee Injuries
  • Spinal Cord Injuries

Due to the severity of injuries that occur in motorcycle accidents, victims tend to accrue significantly higher medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses after a wreck. If you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident, it is imperative that you contact one of our Liberty motorcycle accident lawyers as soon as possible. We will investigate the accident immediately and build your case while you heal from your injuries. Contact us today for a free case evaluation.

Wrongful Death

Losing a family member is one of the most traumatic experiences you can go through. This trauma can feel all the more painful when the accident was avoidable. When negligence contributes to a death, the surviving family is able to get justice for their loved one through a wrongful death lawsuit. Wrongful death lawsuits provide a way for the surviving family to recover financial compensation for the tragedy, including:

  • Medical and funeral expenses
  • Loss of Income or Expected Earnings
  • Mental Anguish
  • Pain & Suffering
  • Loss of Consortium

We understand that no amount of money will bring back a loved one. However, we believe that holding the negligent party responsible for their actions can bring a sense of closure and justice for the family. A wrongful death lawsuit can also help to ease the stress and financial burden of losing a loved one. Medical bills, funeral costs, sudden loss of income, and other expenses can add up quickly, making it difficult to fully recover from the loss.

Our Liberty wrongful death lawyers have years of experience advocating for the rights of our clients who have lost family due to the negligence of another. Contact us today for a free case evaluation and discuss your options with an experienced attorney.
