We all know that tractor-trailers are larger, heavier and have many more blind spots than cars. If you ever drive on Interstate 81, you know that the trucks are taller than your car or truck, and they are 20-30 times heavier, too. If you get hit by a tractor-trailer, the odds are stacked against you. An expected result: death or serious injury. In a tractor-trailer collision there is a 98% chance that the person in the car will be the one killed if there is a fatality (versus the tractor-trailer driver), according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). As one of my colleagues says, “In the battle of car versus truck, the car always loses.” The truck accident attorneys at WilliamsFord know how to handle cases involving injury or death from a tractor trailer collision. Make sure you hire a truck accident attorney in this specialized practice area.
The death of a loved one can be devastating. The pain is often worse when the death is caused by someone else’s negligence, incompetence, or reckless behavior. In these situations, the law allows a claim to be made by the deceased’s loved ones for their loss. And when your loved one is taken suddenly, as in a fatal car accident, the lack of time to prepare for that loss adds to the grief experienced by the family. While no amount of money can make up for the loss, a claim against the at fault party can help deal with the loss of income, medical bills, lost services, funeral expenses, and other solace damages that arise in this situation. At WilliamsFord, we can help deal with the legal aspects of these claims, so that the family can grieve and work on moving forward after the death.
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
TBI is sometimes called “the Silent Epidemic.” We find that many car accidents cause traumatic brain injury but no one talks about it, even the treating physicians. Let us advocate the truth. A brain injury is serious. For brain injury survivors and their families in Leesburg, Winchester, Ashburn and Northern Virginia as well as the eastern panhandle of West Virginia, the brain injury attorneys at WilliamsFord can help obtain respect and reasonable compensation from negligent parties.
Unfortunately, doctors sometimes make mistakes that harm or kill their patients. If you or a loved one believes that the care they have been given is medical malpractice, contact us today. Medical malpractice cases are tough and involve a rigorous review process. The medical malpractice attorneys at WilliamsFord have experience in prosecuting medical malpractice cases in both Virginia and West Virginia.
