If you have been injured due to another’s negligence, contact an experienced personal injury lawyer at the Law Offices of Eric A. Shore. We may be able to help you obtain compensation for your medical expenses, loss of wages or earning capacity, pain, suffering, emotional trauma, and/or permanent disability.
Types of Accidents
Many different types of accidents can lead to serious injuries or even death for those involved. If negligence is the underlying cause, under personal injury laws accident victims may have the right to pursue a personal injury claim or lawsuit against the party or parties responsible. Auto accidents are the most common type of negligence-based accidents. Traffic accidents involving cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, bicycles, buses, heavy commercial trucks, or pedestrians may result in personal injury. Accidents may occur in a variety of ways; rear-end collisions, front-end collisions, T-bone or sideswipe crashes, rollovers with roof crushes, crashes caused by or exacerbated by defective auto parts, defective road maintenance or design, or faulty signage or traffic control devices.
BELOW ARE DIFFERENT TYPES OF ACCIDENTS THAT MAY CAUSE INJURIES:
As we all know, the world can be a dangerous place. We depend on a lot of people to keep us safe- not only the police, but also the person who built the elevator you take up to home or work, the cab driver at the red light as you cross the street, and the train operator who takes you to work every day. The vast majority of the time, they all do a great job, but every once in a while, something unforeseen happens and you are injured through no fault of your own. If you have been injured for any reason at all, and it was not your fault, please contact us immediately for a free initial consultation.
For most of us, working is a fact of life. No one should ever be injured while working; however, people suffer from injuries sustained at their jobs every day. All jobs have their dangers, whether you work in an office or clean the windows of skyscrapers. If you strained your back picking up a box of copier paper, broke your leg on a construction site, or were injured on the job in some other way, please contact us for a free initial consultation.
Most of us have been comfortably driving cars since we passed the test as teenagers. When we get into our cars every morning, we may not recognize the huge life-or-death risk we take to get where we need to go. No matter how skilled of a driver you are, you are not the only person on the road. It only takes a blink of an eye for a text message, distracting thought, or fatigue to become a serious car accident. If you are the victim of a car accident that was someone else’s fault please contact us for a free consultation.
Walking is one is the best and healthiest ways to get around. Unfortunately, because of icy sidewalks, crumbling staircases, and wet or uneven floors, many people are injured in slip and fall accidents in this country on a daily basis. If you were injured in a slip and fall accident, please contact us for a free consultation.
Being on the water is a wonderful way to spend a day. However, depending on the weather, condition of the boat, and abilities of the captain, boating can be extremely dangerous. Whether you are injured in a boat accident, fire, or are struggling with related insurance issues, please contact us for a free consultation.
When a motorcyclist gets into an accident, the results can be much worse than an accident involving cars or trucks. Drivers of cars have a steel frame and a variety of safety features such as seat belts and airbags to protect them in case of an accident. Motorcycle drivers are more vulnerable and more prone to sustain serious or even fatal motorcycle injuries.
Trucks transport almost 70% of all US goods annually. There are over 5.5 million tractor trailers registered in the US. It is almost impossible to drive anywhere without sharing a road with one. Trucks are large, heavy, and powerful, and can pose a very huge threat, even when driven by the most careful truck driver. If you have been involved in an accident with a truck and it was not your fault please contact us for a free initial consultation.
America is currently investing a lot of money in construction projects to improve our roads, bridges, and buildings. No matter where you go, you see something being built or updated. Of course, this growth in construction comes with an increase in dangerous conditions. Even with the best safety measures put in place, accidents can still happen. If you were injured as the result of any sort of construction accident please contact us immediately for a free initial consultation.
Certain specific steps need to be taken after an accident, which will help you in any future personal injury claim you may make. In the aftermath of an accident, it is difficult to think clearly; therefore you should understand these steps ahead of time so that you can react appropriately and defensively.
