Collect the Compensation You Deserve
When another driver acts irresponsibly or recklessly and causes an accident, we believe they should be held accountable for their actions. In many cases, you can collect damages from negligent parties in addition to money from an insurance claim. We can help you pursue and collect compensation for:
- Medical expenses
- Property damage
- Lost wages
- Future inability to work
- Pain and suffering
Motor vehicle accidents, especially those involving larger vehicles such as commercial trucks, can have devastating consequences. Even if your insurance covers part of your medical expenses, insurance payouts are rarely sufficient to cover the long-term effects of catastrophic injuries, such as spinal cord or traumatic brain injuries. Our team can fight on your behalf against at-fault parties or insurance companies to ensure you receive the level of compensation you deserve.
Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents
Every type of accident involving motor vehicles requires an understanding of the liability laws pertaining to the incident. For example, pursuing a lawsuit against a truck driver for a large, multinational corporation requires a different tactic than suing an individual car owner. Our firm can help you navigate your unique case and hold negligent parties responsible for their actions.
Car accidents can be incredibly stressful for those involved. Whether your accident was caused by a mechanical error or the negligence of another driver, you have a right to pursue compensation. Our attorneys can handle all aspects of your case so you can focus on rebuilding.
Due to the size and weight of large commercial trucks, trucking accidents can have far-reaching effects on all those involved. These accidents often result in serious injury and even death.
Commercial trucks are subject to a range of both federal and state laws. The at-fault party for your accident may be the driver. However, the leasing company, the individuals who loaded the truck, or the manufacturer of the vehicle may also be to blame. Determining the cause of your truck accident requires an understanding of negligence law, as well as the federal regulations associated with the trucking industry. In the case of an accident, our firm can fight for justice on your behalf.
Buses and motor coaches are relatively safe ways to travel, as they are rarely involved in accidents. However, when accidents do occur, numerous injuries can result. Bus accidents can result from mechanical issues with the vehicle, the irresponsible actions of the driver, or decisions made by the company who owns the bus. If you or a family member was involved in a bus accident, our team can help you determine the responsible party and hold them accountable.
Due to the small size of motorcycles, they are often at risk for accidents. When a motorcyclist is hit by a vehicle, they are more likely to sustain serious injury or death because they are entirely exposed. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), motorcyclists accounted for 14 percent of all vehicle-related fatalities in 2013. Unsafe road conditions and defective components can also cause motorcycle accidents. If you or a loved one has suffered due to a motorcycle accident, our team can help you build a strong case.
Bicyclists on roadways are especially vulnerable to serious, even catastrophic injury in the event of an accident. Many drivers are careless or simply inattentive and fail to watch out for bicycles. When a bicyclist is hit by a vehicle, there is very little to protect them from bodily harm. Recovering after a bicycle accident can result in significant medical expenses and place strain on your work and family life. Our attorneys can determine if you have the grounds to file a claim and can provide the aggressive legal representation you need.
Individuals driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol can cause grave, sometimes fatal, accidents. According to the NHTSA, drunk driving crashes cause more than 10,000 fatalities each year. If you or a loved one is seriously injured or killed due to the actions of a drunk or drugged driver, you have the right to pursue compensation in a civil court, even if there are no criminal charges. We can provide responsive and compassionate service while aggressively pursuing damages from the parties that contributed to your alcohol- or drug-related accident. This can even extend to the establishment that served the driver.
At The Tawwater Law Firm, we are not afraid to take on large companies to secure the settlement you deserve.
Highway Work Zone Accidents
While all construction zones are dangerous areas, highway work zones can create especially hazardous conditions for both drivers and workers. Victims of accidents in highway construction zones are often entitled to damages from a variety of sources. Whether the result of the accident was injury or the death of a loved one, our team will work quickly to ease your burden and help you collect the compensation you need to recover.
Even low speed collisions with pedestrians can result in catastrophic injury. Based on a report by the NHTSA, over 5,300 pedestrians were killed in traffic accidents in 2015. Often, pedestrian accidents result from inattentive or distracted drivers failing to yield or follow proper driving rules. If you or a loved one has been injured in a pedestrian accident, our attorneys can evaluate your case and aggressively protect your rights.
SUV Rollover Accidents
The construction of sports utility vehicles (SUVs) makes them especially susceptible to rollover accidents. A high center of gravity combined with a heavier weight load means SUVs can flip more easily than other vehicles. Tire blowouts and other manufacturing issues have made SUV rollover accidents both more common and significantly more dangerous for drivers and passengers. At The Tawwater Law Firm, we are not afraid to take on large companies to secure the settlement you deserve.
Maritime accidents can involve a range of water crafts, from small fishing boats or jet skis to massive cruise ships. Accidents that occur on waterways can easily become complicated when issues of maritime and federal law come into play. Lawsuits involving cruise ships also require a unique understanding of the law. Our team of attorneys can help you in cases involving unseaworthy vessels or the negligence of other drivers.
Although train accidents are less frequent than those involving other types of motor vehicles, they can have disastrous consequences. The massive nature of trains and the speeds at which they travel significantly increase the potential for injury and death. For clients injured in train accidents, our team will work tirelessly to pursue the restitution you deserve and restore your peace of mind.
