MOTOR VEHICLE NEGLIGENCE
Every day, people are injured or killed in accidents involving cars, trucks, trains and motorcycles. Whether you are a driver, passenger, bicyclist, or pedestrian, the injuries sustained in an automobile collision can be serious or even catastrophic. Sadly, too many car, truck or vehicle accidents result in the wrongful death of a driver, passenger, bicyclist or pedestrian who is adhering to all the rules of the road.
Motor vehicle accidents or collisions involving automobiles, trucks, and motorcycles can happen for a variety of reasons including negligent drivers who don’t follow the proper speed limit, are texting or talking on a cell phone, run through red lights, turn directly in front of on-coming cars, open doors into the path of a bicyclist, and follow cars too closely. Physical or visual obstacles in the road from roadway construction and dangerous intersections can also cause accidents. Due to the weight of the vehicles and speeds involved, these collisions can result in major injuries and, sadly, death.
After a motor vehicle accident, it is crucial to take various steps to protect the rights of those injured and the families of those killed to ensure that there is maximum recovery for medical bills, disability and disfigurement, lost wages, and loss of life. Throughout his career, Jeffrey Martin has obtained recoveries in all types of motor vehicle collisions including car/truck accidents, head-on collisions, rear end collisions and motor vehicle/pedestrian accidents.
