Car Accident Lawyer in Melrose Park
One of the leading causes of accidental death in the U.S., motor vehicle accidents kill or injure millions of people each year. In the case of auto and motorcycle accidents, there is typically negligence involved, whether it be the responsibility of a driver, a city township, or the vehicle's manufacturer. That's why motor vehicle accident cases are one of the most extensive categories of personal injury litigation nationwide.
Motorcycle Accident Representation
Motorcycle accident cases pose unique challenges due to the liability issues, complex injuries, and other complications that are unique to this type of motor vehicle. The law of 'negligence' is what is typically assessed to determine liability in motorcycle accidents. Negligence is defined as when a person is believed to have behaved in a thoughtless or careless manner which results in injury to another.
While each case is different, there are a few elements that must be proven by the plaintiff in every personal injury case:
- The defendant was not careful. In auto accident cases, the law will compare the behavior of the defendant to that of a "reasonable person."
- Injury or loss was experienced by the plaintiff. If no damages or injuries were incurred by the plaintiff, there is nothing that can be recovered, even if the defendant acted carelessly.
- The plaintiff's injuries or losses were caused by the defendant's conduct.
Personal Injury & Accident Lawyer Serving Melrose Park
Pedestrian and bicycle injuries can range from mild to severe and life-threatening, which typically depends on how fast the car was traveling. Leg injuries, such as torn cartilage and tendons, broken bones, or kneecap and femur fractures, are the most common injuries resulting from pedestrian accidents. Often, if a victim was struck hard enough to be thrown in the air, resulting injuries can be more severe and include brain damage, herniated discs, or lacerated internal organs.
