Automobile Accidents

One of the most common causes of personal injury in America today are automobile accidents. Automobile accidents are becoming more and more common as drivers become more and more distracted. New technology allows drivers to send and read text messages; to surf the internet; and to program and interact with the GPS system while driving. These distractions are becoming so prevalent that states and cities and towns have begun to pass restrictive laws to prohibit the use of such distracting devices while operating a motor vehicle and, yet, automobile accidents remain all too common. In fact, an automobile accident occurs every 5 seconds in this country and car wrecks are responsible for over 3 million injuries per year.

Car crashes will claim 400,000 lives each year. Fatal car accidents are the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of 34. Each day, approximately 115 people will die in a motor vehicle accident. Over $150 billion of damage results from car crashes each year. Every person in the United States is likely to experience at least one car accident during their lifetime.Car accidents can have terrible consequences. They can lead to property damage, temporary or permanent physical injuries, and even death.

In most cases, someone who is injured in an automobile accident can recover for:
• Lost Wages
• Medical Bills
• Property Damage
• Loss of the Quality of Life
• Physical Disabilities and Disfigurement
• Pain and Suffering
• Mental Anguish and Emotional Distress

These days, because of the heavy handedness of insurance companies and big corporations, those involved in car accidents need advice about how they can protect their rights and ensure that they are being treated fairly. That’s where we come in.

Time is of the essence. In order to protect your rights, your lawyers must move quickly to protect the evidence, interview witnesses while their memories are still fresh; and to take photos of the accident scene while physical evidence is still fresh and available for inspection and retention. Within days of a car accident, many complicated and confusing insurance issues may also arise. You should know that insurance companies and their lawyers will begin mobilizing as soon as they become aware that they may have to pay for an accident.

Many times, they will attempt to entice you into signing documents that take away your rights and limit your ability to be fully compensated for injuries you have suffered. Unfortunately, if the statute of limitations passes or if you sign these documents, you may lose your rights forever. If an insurance company tells you that you don’t need a lawyer, you can rest assured – You need a lawyer!

We, at the Law Offices of Troy King, stand prepared to advise you and your loved ones who have been involved in a car accident. We will advise you, negotiate on your behalf and represent you in court and recover the money that is owed to you.

Sometimes an automobile accident may include injuries suffered in a rollover, a head-on collision, a side-impact collision, a rear-end collision, a high-speed collision, or a lane-changing accident. In those cases, the driver of the other vehicle may not always be at fault for the accident. In fact, flaws in the design of automobiles, defects in automobiles, faulty highway or road design, or inadequate lighting may be to blame. In those instances, you may have a right to recover for your injuries and losses from an automobile company or a contractor. We can evaluate your case and claim and advise you regarding your rights.

Accidents Involving Big Trucks

Every 16 minutes, a person is killed in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, tractor trailer. In 2010, 500,000 accidents involved large truck and commercial vehicles. 100,000 people were seriously injured and 5,000 people were killed in those wrecks and the truck driver was at fault in the overwhelming majority of them. This is largely because the competitive nature of the transportation industry forces trucking companies to place immense pressure on their drivers to remain competitive. As a result, truckers often labor under unrealistic time schedules, battle drowsiness, and are forced to make decisions regarding whether to comply with the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Standards on safety-related matters like time at the wheel, load weights, and vehicle safety inspections.

One of the most frequent causes of these accidents is driver fatigue. Driver fatigue became such a common cause of accidents involving big rigs that new federal regulations were issued in 2003 to limit the number of hours that a driver can drive. Even with these changes, however, the National Transportation Safety Board still estimates that almost 40% of all accidents involving tractor-trailers have driver fatigue as a cause. When an accident involving a tractor-trailer is caused by driver fatigue or some other safety violation, those injured in the accident may be able to recover damages from the truck driver and the trucking company. It is important that the lawyer who you choose to represent you be familiar with federal trucking laws and investigates and determines whether the driver violated any Federal Motor Carrier Safety Standards or other regulations.

If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident involving an 18-wheeler, a lawyer may be able to help you get money for:
• Your Lost Wages
• Medical Bills
• Property Damage
• Physical Disability or Disfigurement
• Pain and Suffering
• Mental Anguish and Emotional Distress

If you or someone you love has been involved in such an accident, it is important that you quickly speak with an attorney about your rights. Doing so allows your lawyer to represent you more effectively by allowing him to protect evidence; to interview witnesses while their memories are still fresh; and to photograph the accident scene while physical evidence is still fresh and available for inspection.

In trucking cases it is essential that your lawyer hire an accident reconstruction and trucking expert to visit and investigate the scene of the accident while signs of the accident are still on the road.

Accidents Involving Motorcycles

As the roads of America become more and more crowded and as drivers become more and more distracted by cell phones, smart phones, and other devices (such as GPSs), accidents are becoming more common. These accidents often result in property damage, temporary and/or permanent physical injury, and, sometimes, even death. Increasingly, motorcyclists are involved in accidents.

Motorcyclists are four times more likely than other drivers to be involved in an accident and, when they are involved, they are 21 times more likely to be killed. The lawyer for an injured or killed motorcyclist must be familiar with all the reasons for motorcyclist injuries. For example, a person may run the rider off the road causing him to run head-on into a telephone pole. Of course, the person who ran him off the road is liable, but the lawyer must look more deeply and ask, “Did the rider’s helmet properly protect his head?” If the answer is no, then liability may also attach to the helmet manufacturer. On the other hand, motorcyclists are also to blame for accidents. Those who ride at dangerously fast speeds or who ride in a reckless way pose a great risk to other motorists. If you have been injured in an accident when the recklessness of a motorcyclist is to blame, you need a lawyer to help protect your rights.

If you been hurt in a motorcycle accident, you should contact an attorney to help you determine who is at fault and to advise you of your rights.

As always, there is no cost to you unless we recover on your behalf.

Accidents Involving DUI

Not all car accidents are caused by drivers who were distracted or were not paying attention. Some are not accidents at all but are the result of a deliberate decision by someone to impair themselves with drugs or alcohol and to then to get behind the wheel of a vehicle. Sadly, alcohol remains a factor in 38% of all deadly car crashes and 7% of all automobile accidents in the United States. If you have been involved in an accident where the other driver was driving under the influence of prescription drugs or other medication, illegal drugs, or even over-the-counter medicine which is also called DUI, and was formerly called DWI, you should speak with a lawyer about your rights.
