When Wrecks Are Caused by Negligence
Some accidents are truly blameless. Others, however, could have been avoided if the other involved party had not acted in a careless or reckless way.
Some common causes of car accidents that can be attributed to negligence include:
- Distracted driving
- Texting and driving
- Drunk/Impaired driving
- Reckless driving
- Street racing
- Running red lights
- Failing to yield
- Running stop signs
- Improper turns
- Driving the wrong way
- Inexperienced drivers
- Following too closely
- Unsafe lane changes
Even safe drivers may find themselves in harm’s way when others act carelessly. If you were injured or had a loved one killed in a car accident caused by someone else’s negligence, our firm is prepared to help. While financial compensation will not take away the pain and suffering you have experienced, it can help ease the burden of mounting medical bills, lost income, ongoing treatment, and more.
Tractor Trailer Truck Wrecks Caused by Negligence
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured or killed by a truck or tractor trailer, we can help. Attorney Aldred is experienced in truck accident cases with injury or death caused by negligent truck drivers. The law on these cases is very tricky because at the national level the trucking lobby is very strong. You need a seasoned and experienced lawyer who knows what they are doing to help navigate through truck wreck cases. Unfortunately, Federal Code 49 CFR 387 requires little liability insurance for trucking companies, who often have no assets because the trucks are “leased”. Therefore, when a truck driver causes a death or serious injury, the trucking company has, for example, $5,000.00 in assets and minimum insurance coverage. This is why you need attorney Aldred on your side. Attorney Aldred recently recovered more than the statutory limits for the family of a person killed in a trucking accident!
Motorcycle Wrecks Caused by Someone Else’s Carelessness
The effects of a motorcycle accident can be devastating, and the legal system can be frustrating to navigate. Two-thirds of multi-vehicle motorcycle wrecks are caused by the other vehicle violating the motorcycle's right-of-way. The failure of motorists to detect and recognize motorcycles in traffic is the predominant cause of motorcycle accidents. The driver of the other vehicle involved in a collision with a motorcycle did not see the motorcycle before the collision or did not see the motorcycle until it was too late to avoid the collision. Motorcycle accidents can result in serious consequences, including brain injuries, spinal cord injuries, broken bones, and more. These injuries can be life-changing and may require a lifetime of medical treatment that can cost tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Attorney Aldred has experience with motorcycle collision cases and can navigate injured clients and their families through settlements and trials to win compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, and much more.
