Accidents And Injuries
Car collisions can cause a wide range of serious injuries that can have dramatic effects on people’s lives.
Speeding, traffic violations, distracted drivers, road conditions, drunk drivers, vehicle defects and other preventable factors cause most car accidents. In an automobile accident, occupants may be thrown around like rag dolls, even if restrained by seatbelts.
Our attorneys have experience with all manner of injuries, including brain injury, broken bones, fractures, whiplash, chronic back pain, crushed or herniated disc and internal bleeding.
Our Lawyers and Staff Will:
Compensation for Car Accident Victims
The insurance company wants to settle your case as soon as possible—and for as little money as possible. You need time to determine just how serious your injury is, what medical treatment or physical therapy you need and how much your lost wages will be. Contact the staff at Maxwell Law Firm for a Free Case Evaluation.
Were You Hit By an Uninsured or Underinsured Driver?
Uninsured motorist (UM) coverage in your own auto insurance policy covers your costs from an accident caused by another driver—one who is uninsured, underinsured or cannot be found. Many people do not fully understand their policy provisions and it is not uncommon for an insurance company to deny a legitimate claim.
If a member of your family suffers a catastrophic injury, the basic medical benefits in your automobile insurance policy may quickly be exhausted. It may not provide full compensation. By coordinating all available provisions, including your uninsured motorist insurance and your health insurance, our attorneys will work to see that you recover maximum benefits from your claim. If you lost a family member in a fatal car accident, our lawyers will work to get the help you will need to carry on.
What To Do After a Car Crash
At the Scene of the Car Crash
At the First Opportunity After the Accident:
Sorting out the aftermath of a truck accident is a complex job requiring knowledge of trucks, the trucking industry and the unique insurance issues involved. One-fourth of trucking accidents involve multiple vehicles and multiple victims, further complicating claims for compensation.
Compared to other kinds of accidents, trucking accidents tend to result in especially serious injuries and property damage. Sometimes they even result in death. Though these are terrible tragedies, insurance and trucking companies are more likely to see them as expenses they do not want to pay.
These companies are very good at finding reasons not to fulfill their obligations and may insist that you agree to their offer and sign their papers. You do not have to agree to anything. You have every right to speak to an attorney who will be on your side, not their's.
Time May Run Out
It is very important to get a lawyer of your own on board as soon as possible. The statute of limitations on truck accident cases is limited, and only by hiring an attorney who can file a lawsuit can you protect your rights to sue.

Pet Owners are Responsible for Safety
Dog owners do not get a free pass when their dogs attack. Unless an attack victim was trespassing or breaking other laws at the time of the attack, liability falls solely on the shoulders of the pet's owner. In cases where a dog has attacked before and an owner has failed to take proper precautions, it may be possible to secure punitive damages in addition to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, mental anguish and other economic losses.
Dog Attacks Involving Children
If your child has been attacked, there may be other issues involved, such as negligent supervision. We can help you pursue those claims in addition to seeking compensation for dog bite injuries. Our lawyers can also help you set up a conservatorship to protect the financial settlement your child receives.
