Types of Car Accident Cases We Handle

There are many areas of the law. You need an attorney who can establish a clear picture of the events that led to your car accident. We can reconstruct the events that led up to your car accident by collecting evidence and witness testimony that demonstrates beyond the shadow of a doubt that you were wronged.

Our lawyers handle many types of car accident cases, including:

Minor Car Accidents

Most drivers will deal with a minor car accident at some point in their lifetime. These minor accidents can have long-lasting implications. Not to mention, minor car accidents may cause medical concerns that take days, hours, or weeks to materialize fully. Never dismiss a minor car accident as “just a scratch” — take action as soon as possible after a car accident.

Rideshare Accidents

Accidents involving rideshares like Uber or Lyft can quickly become a finger-pointing game. Many ride-sharing companies hide behind legal loopholes to keep you from pursuing compensation. It’s not fair that these companies conceal their responsibility, especially when most people take rideshares out of respect for other people. 

Distracted Driving

It is against the law to text and drive in Florida and Georgia. And with good reason: any behavior that distracts you while driving — texting, calling, eating, drinking, watching videos, using your GPS, changing the radio — can risk the safety of your fellow drivers.

Hit & Run Accidents

Hit and run accidents occur when a driver flees an accident scene without taking the time to exchange information. Many people around Florida and Georgia deal with this scourge. Hit and runs can occur with other motorists or bicycles and pedestrians. Even if you were involved in a hit-and-run and aren’t sure about who caused your accident, you may be able to recover your losses.

Fatal Car Accidents

Auto accidents involve high speed and sudden impacts, often resulting in injury or loss of life. It’s heartbreaking when someone’s negligent behavior causes an accident that ultimately leads to death. Examples of negligent conduct that leads to death can include distracted driving, unsafe driving, or even hazardous roadways. 

The insurance company spends millions of dollars to keep families from pursuing legal action. People often are made to feel guilty for asking for a fair recovery. We don’t think that’s a helpful solution for these victimized families. No amount of money can bring back someone you love. That said, a substantial recovery can help offset your financial and emotional challenges.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk and intoxicated driving occurs when an individual has willfully impaired their ability to operate a vehicle using alcohol or other intoxicants. These drivers have dangerous reaction times that risk the health of everyone on the road. If a drunk driver causes an accident, they may be charged with personal injury damages and criminal charges

If you have to travel on Florida roadways while taking a prescription that affects your driving ability, it’s advisable to seek alternative means of transportation like ridesharing or a designated driver.

Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions occur when two cars collide front-to-front. Even at low speeds, head-on collisions can quickly turn fatal. The sheer violence of these collisions make them one of the extreme types of accidents, bearing some of the most severe injuries imaginable. 

Rear-End Car Accidents

Rear-end accidents occur when one driver strikes another from behind. Tailgating or sudden stops are the main cause of rear-end accidents. Typically, the law will side with the person struck for damages, although this is not universally true. Even at slow speeds, these accidents cause severe and long-lasting injuries to the neck and back.

Fatigued Accident

Many people don’t realize that fatigued driving can be as dangerous as drunk driving. Feeling drowsy can compromise your driving ability, slowing your reaction time, impairing judgment, and hampering coordination.

If you have to travel on Florida roadways while taking a prescription that affects your driving ability, it’s advisable to seek alternative means of transportation like ridesharing or a designated driver.

Rollover Accidents

Rollover accidents occur when an impact causes a high-profile vehicle (like an SUV or pickup) to flip and land on its side or back. These horrific events can involve multiple cars, pedestrians, and even infrastructure.

Pedestrian Injury Accidents

It’s no secret that Florida and Georgia have some of the most beautiful weather in the country. However, warm weather can be a magnet for pedestrian accidents. The numbers for pedestrian accidents are experiencing a worrying uptick, especially as both drivers and pedestrians are distracted by cellphones and other devices.

High-Speed Crash Accidents

Speed limits keep the population safe. When you are speeding, every little movement is magnified. If a car accident occurs while the driver is breaking the speed, that out-of-control vehicle can let loose an unspeakable trail of carnage in its wake.

Wrong-Way Driver Accidents

Motorists traveling in the opposite direction on a roadway or access ramp can cause debilitating injuries or death. Wrong-way driver accidents are often linked to the injuries associated with head-on collisions.

Unsafe Lane Changes

As a motorist, you must be considerate of your fellow drivers. Checking your mirrors while switching lanes is imperative to safe driving. Unsafe lane changes create a ripple effect of destruction that can cause head-on accidents and other highway hazards.

Rental Car Accidents

Florida and Georgia are a haven for tourists, and where there are tourists, there are rental car accidents. Collisions involving rental cars involve a complicated network of legal paperwork that can make an already difficult situation seem impossible. An experienced attorney can help you find the best way forward after a rental car accident.

Road Rage Accidents

Aggressive driving — also known as road rage — is one of the riskiest behaviors behind the wheel. When a driver takes their frustration out on their fellow motorists by engaging in risky behaviors like speeding, intimidation, tailgating, or violence, there should be consequences. This behavior can cause a chain reaction where an angry driver creates more stressed-out drivers. Road rage creates an undeniable threat to every driver.

Teen Driver Accidents

Teens account for 8% of incidents on the open road. New drivers are less likely to have the experience necessary to navigate the challenges behind the wheel, leading to rear-end collisions, unsafe lane changes, or other risky behaviors. Unsafe teens can cause havoc because there are more distractions than ever on the road. Additionally, temptations from drugs may lead them to engage in drunk or intoxicated driving.
