Truck Accidents

Large commercial vehicles like semi-trucks, tractor trailers, dump trucks, big rigs and 18 wheelers can often weigh up to 40 tons when fully loaded. Cars, pick-up trucks and SUVs are only a fraction of the size, so even a low speed accident can cause serious damage.

These commercial trucks are highly regulated and when truck drivers fail to adhere to these safety laws, rules and procedures it can help your case. Depending on the circumstances of your accident different parties may be held accountable, including the driver, the trucking company and in some cases the truck manufacturer.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles offer far less protection than vehicles and therefore motorcyclists are more likely to be significantly injured during a wreck. If the accident is the result of a driver not seeing the motorcycle they will almost always be held responsible for the accident.

Road hazards can also pose significant risk to motorcyclists. If you were injured due to obstructions like uneven pavement, gravel or debris the liability can lie with public or private parties responsible for the road's maintenance.

Medical Negligence

When you are injured or ill you trust medical professionals, pharmacists, doctors and nurses to follow medical guidelines when treating you or your loved one. When they fail to meet the standards of their profession and cause you more harm, your patient rights have been violated, and they are considered negligent. This means that the medical professional has failed to practice reasonable skill, maintained adequate attention, or deviated from the accepted standard of care.

Medical negligence cases can be difficult to prove since quite often you were already sick or injured. We work with you to analyze your case and determine if medical negligence created additional damage. Tom Hughes understands the medical community after practicing for a number of years as a traveling nurse. This offers a unique perspective during investigation, and evaluating case evidence on your behalf.

If you have suffered injury or illness because of a negligent medical professional you deserve to take action. Contact Us Today and we will help you get the recovery you need.

Pedestrian Accidents

Pedestrians are significantly more vulnerable in an accident with any type of motorized vehicle. When a driver is negligent in operating their vehicle which includes being aware of their surrounding, the safety of pedestrians can be compromised. The negligent party in personal injury cases will typically be responsible for any damages. Sometimes both parties share responsibility, in which case we help determine the percentage of liability. If you were following the responsibilities of pedestrians, it is likely that the driver is 100% responsible.
