Bus Accidents

Public, charter or limousine bus accidents can be devastating because of the number of passengers carried inside a bus, combined with the fact that most buses are not equipped with, or do not require riders to utilize, seat belts.  Bus accidents are further complicated by the fact that bas riders are free to move about the cabin of the bus to socialize or use the restroom and, when busses are full or overcrowded, riders are permitted to stand.  In addition to public, charter and limousine bus accidents, as many as 20,000 school bus accidents occur each year causing nearly 10,000 injuries and more than 15 fatalities.  Like public or charter bus transportation, school bus accidents are very serious because of the number of school bus passengers who, in most cases, are unsupervised and unrestrained children.  Read More…

Truck Accidents

A traffic accident involving a commercial truck, such as an eighteen-wheeler or other large freight carrier, can be much more catastrophic than an ordinary car accident. A typical fully-loaded large commercial truck can weigh 80,000 pounds or more, while an average passenger automobile weighs approximately 3,000 pounds. Because of this size disparity, and due to the basic laws of physics, any collision between a commercial truck and another vehicle is likely to result in serious, even fatal, injuries.  In the event that you or a loved one is involved in an accident with a commercial truck, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your injuries by bringing a legal claim against the responsible parties.  Read More…

Paralysis Cases

Paralysis is one of the most extreme injuries a person can suffer. Often it occurs because of a spinal cord injury, resulting in partial or complete paralysis. And after such an injury, the process of treating and coping with it has only just begun.  Unlike many injuries, paralysis often tends to be permanent, which makes living with paralysis a very difficult task. Besides its physical demands, the victim must handle the tough mental requirements of his or her injury while adjusting to a new way of life – a life involving permanent disability.  Life must be approached with a new outlook, and that can be very emotional for family members and loved ones.
