Injured by a Drunk Driver?

As you make your way down the road, you never know what those around you are doing or thinking. While you may be 100 percent sober, somebody in close proximity could be legally drunk.

Drinking and driving increases the chance of an accident. For a better idea of how big of a problem this has become, consider the following stats supplied by Mothers Against Drunk Driving:

  • An average drunk driver has driven drunk 80 times before first arrest.
  • Every day in America, another 28 people die as a result of drunk driving crashes.
  • Every two minutes, a person is injured in a drunk driving crash.

As you can see, drunk driving leads to accidents, day in and day out, which result in death. Along with these, many other incidents leave the victim (or victims) seriously injured.

If you have been injured by a drunk driver or a loved one has been killed, you must know your rights. Over the years, we have helped many people in this position receive the compensation they deserve. Contact us for a free initial consultation.


Auto Accidents are more Common than Many Believe

The longer you drive without being involved in an auto accident the easier it is to believe that this will never happen to you.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation, approximately 2.4 million people are injured in auto accidents in the United States every year. Along with this, more than 30,000 people die from injuries.

Now do you believe this could never happen to you?

Many of these accidents result from negligent driving, such as running a red light, speeding, or drinking and driving.

If you are injured in an accident, due to the negligence of another driver, you may be able to receive compensation for your injuries. The same holds true if a loved one has been killed in such an accident.

There are things you can do to stay safe while driving, such as following the rules of the road and wearing a safety belt at all times. Even then, this does not change the fact that those around you can make mistakes.

If you require any assistance after a car accident, contact us for a free initial consultation.

If you think you have a case of mesothelioma, the first thing you should do is receive immediate medical attention. With an experienced doctor on your side, you can determine once and for all if you have this form of cancer.

While there may not be any cure for mesothelioma, there are steps you can take to prolong your life and minimize the pain associated with the disease.

Once you are stable medically, it is time to contact a mesothelioma attorney to discuss your legal options. You may be able to file a lawsuit to receive compensation to pay medical bills and other expenses. You may also be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering.

Why you Need Us

With so much that goes into a mesothelioma lawsuit, it is important to consult with an experienced attorney as soon as possible. There are many potential defendants, as well as complex laws, so you need a legal team on your side that knows what to expect and how to maximize the compensation owed to you.


Potential Causes of a Tractor Trailer Accident

Not every truck accident leads to a personal injury lawsuit, but there are times when the victim has the right to file a claim as a means of receiving compensation for his or her injuries along with other damages.

  • Truckers who have been on the road for too long, not getting the appropriate amount of rest
  • Truckers who are driving under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol
  • Missing safety equipment
  • Excessive speed
  • Poorly maintained vehicle
