Types of Moving Vehicle Accident Cases We Accept

When motorists, truck drivers, and others are careless or negligent in their duties and cause an accident, innocent people can be seriously injured. These victims are entitled to hold the negligent party liable for his or her actions. At Case Barnett Law, we are experienced in representing victims of the following types of accidents:

  • Car accidents. When another driver’s action (or inaction) causes a crash that leaves you injured, you have a right to be compensated for your damages.
  • Railroad crossing accidents. A poorly marked railroad crossing is a dangerous hazard to motorists, and the liable party should be held accountable.
  • Commercial vehicle accidents. Commercial drivers, including truckers and delivery drivers, have a duty to protect the public by driving safely. When they do not, innocent people are injured.
  • Bus accidents. Bus drivers are held to a higher standard of care because they are responsible for so many lives. If you were injured in a bus crash, you will need skilled legal representation.
  • Bicycle accidents. Motorists are often blind to cyclists on the road and fail to give them the space and respect they deserve. Hold the driver who caused your bicycle accident accountable.
  • Motorcycle accidents. Motorcyclists are vulnerable to serious injury when a car or truck driver fails to see them and yield the right-of-way. Recovery from a motorcycle crash can be difficult and costly.
  • Pedestrian accidents. Cars must always yield to pedestrians; failing to see a pedestrian is not an excuse. If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a pedestrian accident, talk to our attorney.
  • Boating accidents. Many boating accidents happen because of driver inexperience or intoxication. Whatever the cause of the boat crash that left you injured, we can help.
