Accidents involving trucks, buses, and other commercial vehicles often cause the most serious and deadly injuries.

A pedestrian is the most vulnerable individual from an impact with a car or other motor vehicle. Therefore, in an accident between a vehicle and a pedestrian, the pedestrian often sustains significant injuries even at low speeds.
Bicycle accidents are very common because many drivers do not watch out for cyclists when changing lanes, turning, and even opening doors into the bike lane. Such accidents can often result in serious injuries for cyclists.
Hit and Run
When the driver who causes an accident (a) flees the scene without providing his/her information such as name, driver license and liability insurance, or (b) has no liability insurance, the victim can recover damages from the Uninsured Motorist (UM) coverage of his/her own insurance policy.
Slip and Fall
When you slip and fall on a wet floor, defective stairs, or etc., of someone else’s property and consequently sustain injuries from the accident, the property owner is sometimes (not always) responsible for your injuries. Accordingly, it is crucial to report the accident to the property owner, manager, or landlord, ask them to make a written report about the accident, and request a copy for you. Make sure to take pictures of the location where you fell and collect information from all potential witnesses.
When a person dies or is killed due to the negligence or misconduct of another, the surviving members of the victim’s family may sue for wrongful death.
