Bicycle and Motorcycle Accidents

When you ride your bicycle or motorcycle, you expect a pleasant outing, not a collision with a negligent driver. Unfortunately, many drivers fail to give cyclists the consideration they deserve. These negligent drivers regularly cause devastating accidents, which lead to serious injuries and sometimes, death. Lish Whitson is a wonderful legal advocate to turn to as you recover from the trauma of your accident.

Truck Accidents

It is never good when accidents occur, but when accidents involve a large truck, the consequences are usually especially severe. Because large trucks weigh so much, they are harder to maneuver and stop. They also cause substantial damage to any other vehicle that they collide with because of they are so much bigger. In many cases, victims of truck accidents deserve compensation for the harm that they have suffered due to these severe accidents.

Car Accidents

You may be entitled to compensation for the losses you sustained in a car accident if the accident was caused by another party, such as a driver who was drunk, driving with distractions or failing to follow traffic laws. If your claim is successful, you may be able to recover compensation for lost wages, medical bills, future medical expenses, and lost earning capacity. You may also be able to recover additional benefits to compensate you for the pain and suffering you endured because of the accident.
