A few million people are non-fatally injured in U.S. motor vehicle accidents every year. Tens of thousands are killed. As experienced car accident lawyers, we are passionate about accident prevention. We have witnessed just how devastating these injuries are on the lives of victims and their families. Our legal services include pursuing justice and compensation for people injured in accidents, and for the families of accident victims who were killed.
A legal claim could involve virtually any type of serious accident injury. Some of the most common are:
- Brain injury
- Spinal cord injury
- Injuries resulting in amputation
- Neck and back injury
- Scarring and disfigurement
- Internal injuries
The severity of the injuries depends on many factors including seat belt usage, vehicle speed, vehicle size, whether the vehicle was hit from the side/rear/front, the position of the occupant’s body and more.
If the crash that injured you was caused by someone else’s carelessness (a texting driver, a drunk driver, a reckless semi-truck operator), then you may have a case to pursue compensation with our help. We offer a free consultation so you can find out.
Skeletal, nerve and organ injuries can be life-altering. The victim may experience partial or total loss of certain functions. It can be difficult or impossible to return to former job duties. Getting around, caring for yourself and caring for others can also be problematic, depending on the injury. While groundbreaking, effective therapies and treatments exist for many types of car accident injuries, they can be expensive and ongoing. A case handled by our attorneys is an opportunity to pursue compensation so that you can afford to live with your injury, replace lost income, and generally rebuild portions of your life following a serious crash.
The only way to know for sure if you have a case is to consult an experienced attorney. To arrange a consultation at McPhillips Fitzgerald & Cullum, LLP, please contact us. Our law firm has offices in New York and in Florida.
