SEVERE, TRAUMATIC INJURIES WRONGFUL DEATH – LIABILITY AND INSURANCE ISSUES

 
Although motorcyclists have rights equal to those of all other drivers on the road, not every driver operates his or her car or truck accordingly. Many motorcycle accidents involve inattentive driving or other forms of negligence and, unfortunately, the consequences of the wrecks that results often include very severe injuries or even wrongful death.
If a motorcycle accident has caused you or your loved one life-changing injuries, it can be especially critical to work with a lawyer who understands:
  • The unique nuances of motorcycle accident causes, including proving liability when another driver claims he or she could not see the motorcyclist.
  • How to build the strongest possible case for maximum compensation if your accident resulted in a traumatic brain injury, spinal injury, or other injuries requiring multiple surgeries, extensive rehabilitation or lifelong care.
  • Strategies frequently used by insurance defense lawyers in complex motorcycle accident cases.

EQUIPPED TO THOROUGHLY INVESTIGATE AND BUILD YOUR CASE

Sharing the road with all types of vehicles is a clear reality of driving almost anywhere. A significant percentage of serious motor vehicle accidents involve semis, tractor-trailer rigs and other large commercial trucks—and, unfortunately, the consequences can include fatalities or extremely severe injuries.
 
The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates represents injured clients involved in a wide range of truck accidents, whether the driver of a semi or other large commercial truck is the injured party or the one accused of negligence.
Such situations can involve:
  • Trucker negligence by truck drivers who were inattentive, fatigued, intoxicated, or otherwise at fault in an injury accident
  • Truck maintenance issues relating to poorly maintained or nonfunctioning equipment that has caused injury
  • Commercial transport liability for transport companies employing negligent drivers, failing to maintain equipment, or harboring policies or procedures that encourage violations of safety regulations
 
Truck Accidents — Motor Vehicle Accident Expert Services in Worcester, MA
 
Our experience in truck-accident litigation can be essential when accident reconstruction, forensic engineering or other expertise is required to establish the cause of the crash and prove liability. It is also essential when a well-resourced trucking company or parent company mounts an aggressive defense, and when violations of federal regulations specific to trucking are involved.

In such cases we can be a valuable asset in proving your case and securing compensation for your injuries.

PEDESTRIAN ACCIDENTS

Call us today for a free consultation: 508-739-2000.

Whenever a car crash involves a pedestrian, the personal injuries that result tend to be severe or fatal. In accidents involving automobiles and pedestrians, personal injury and wrongful death claims are frequently made. The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates have handled many such cases in the greater Worcester area.
Pedestrians involved in an accident with a motor vehicle can recover damages for the injuries suffered if the driver's negligence caused or contributed to the incident. To establish negligence in a pedestrian accident, the injured pedestrian must prove that the operator of the motor vehicle failed to fulfill their legal duty and caused an accident or injury that harmed or injured the plaintiff.

In pedestrian injury cases, there may be more than one party with legal responsibility for the accident. Depending on the circumstances, individuals with potential liability include the driver of the vehicle that struck the pedestrian, and the party responsible for maintaining the sidewalk, roadway or parking lot where the accident occurred.
The Law Offices of Dennis J. Ellis and Associates has extensive experience in this area, and can determine whether you should consider legal action to recover damages to your injuries.
 
In the majority of cases, any recovery in a pedestrian negligence case involving a motor vehicle will hinge upon the exact duty of care required by those involved. Both drivers and pedestrians have a legal obligation to follow the laws of the road and exercise reasonable care. In many cases, it may seem obvious who was careless or negligent, but the courts look at a variety of factors in a negligence claim.
Some of the factors we watch for include situations where drivers:
  • inattentive or distracted driving
  • failure to observe posted speed limits
  • failure to yield to pedestrians at marked cross walks
  • ignored traffic signs or signalsfailure to signal before turning
  • unsafe driving for conditions
  • driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
