Car Accidents

If you are involved in a car accident, the damage and injuries can have a devastating impact on your financial, physical, and psychological well-being. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of injury and death. Each year, about 2.5 million people are injured in automobile accidents, and, tragically, about 34,000 die of injuries sustained in those crashes. A car accident can take only a second, but the consequences can last for months, years or even a lifetime.

Car collisions can be caused by a multitude of factors, which include the negligence of other drivers and unsafe roadways. Our experienced attorneys will carefully review the circumstances of your auto accident and analyze evidence in order to identify the party responsible for your injuries. Distracted driver cases are on the rise, as the number of personal devices with which individuals interact has also risen. Common driver distractions include cell phones, texting while driving and eating while driving.

There is no such thing as a simple auto accident. The moment you hear the crunch of metal and are thrown about in your car, your life has entered a difficult time. You have medical bills, lost wages during recovery, car repairs, and other expenses. You are in pain. You need help fast.  When you or a loved one have been injured due to the negligence of another, contact Huber, Waldron & Williams, LLP, for tenacious and reliable representation.

Drunk Driving Accidents

Drunk driver auto accidents are unfortunately very common. A tragic event such as a drunk-driving accident can turn people’s lives upside down. Due to the careless nature of drunk driving accidents, injuries may be life-threatening and require immediate medical help. You may face significant medical bills, a loss of income, and other financial setbacks. You may be suffering physically and emotionally. Worst of all, these accidents could have been easily be prevented. The dangers of driving under the influence have been well documented for decades. And yet, some people insist on ignoring the facts and driving under the influence.

Many parties can be at fault for a drunk driving accident. In addition to the driver of the other vehicle, the restaurant or bar that served the driver may be liable. In Pennsylvania, it is illegal for a holder of a liquor license to serve someone who is visibly intoxicated.

Our experienced team of lawyers take the legal burden off your shoulders so you can focus on healing. When you or a loved one have been injured due to the negligence of another driver who was driving under the influence, contact Huber, Waldron & Williams, LLP, for tenacious and reliable representation.

Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcycles have become an appealing alternative to more traditional forms of transportation. For many people, they love the thrill of the open road. However, motorcyclists face substantial risks to their health and safety. The low profiles of motorcycles compared to other vehicles make them more difficult for many drivers to see, especially for those who are not paying close attention to their surroundings. Because of the size and relative lack of safety features on most motorcycles, even a minor motorcycle accident can result in devastating injuries that affect a motorcyclist physically, emotionally, and financially. Motorcycle accidents are more likely to cause long-term pain and suffering or require ongoing medical care as riders lack seat belts, air bags, and a car’s structural protections.

Because one of our attorneys is an avid rider, we know motorcycles and the problems you face on the road. We understand the out-dated attitudes about ‘bikers’ which can affect what you face on the road and in a court of law. Whether you ride a chopper, cruiser, touring, sport bike, or scooter, we will fight for your rights to get you the compensation you deserve. When you or a loved one have been injured in a motorcycle accident due to the negligence of another, contact Huber, Waldron & Williams, LLP, for tenacious and reliable representation.

Uninsured / Underinsured Coverage

When you are injured due to the fault of another driver, you assume that they will have adequate insurance to compensate you for your injuries. Unfortunately, not all drivers are adequately insured. In cases where the negligent driver is uninsured or underinsured, it is extremely challenging for an injury victim to obtain adequate compensation. However, there is hope of compensation in cases where the victim carries uninsured and/or underinsured motorist coverage through their own automobile insurance policy. In these circumstances, you can make a claim under your own automobile insurance policy.

If your claim is successful, your insurance company must pay for whatever the negligent motorist would have had to pay up to the limits of your policy, including pain and suffering, lost wages and medical bills. Since it can be difficult and challenging to make a claim for this type of coverage, it is best to seek the advice of a knowledgeable attorney who is well-versed in uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage.

Pedestrian Accidents

Every year, thousands of pedestrians are injured or killed by motorists. The majority of victims in pedestrian accidents are children and the elderly. While there are many causes of pedestrian accidents, driver negligence is among the most common. Drivers are obligated to be aware of nearby pedestrians and are required to give them the right-of-way. Drivers are required to be aware of their surroundings and exercise proper caution when they are in neighborhoods where children are present, including parks and schools. When drivers make errors or fail to see pedestrians, accidents occur. Common driver errors include failure to yield to pedestrians in crosswalks, disregarding traffic controls and signals, distracted driving and unsafe speed.

Not surprisingly, a pedestrian struck by a motor vehicle will usually sustain serious injuries. Life threatening injuries to the spine, head, and internal organs are likely to occur for pedestrian accident victims. When you or a loved one have been injured as a pedestrian due to the negligence of an motorist, contact Huber, Waldron & Williams, LLP, for tenacious and reliable representation.

Trucking Accidents

Truck accidents are among the most devastating traffic collisions. One out of every eight vehicle accident fatalities involves large trucks such as 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles. Four percent of all injuries sustained in vehicle crashes are caused by large trucks. When a commercial truck is involved in an accident, eighty-six percent of fatalities and seventy-seven percent of those injured are the drivers and passengers of the smaller vehicles.

Federal law has established the minimum levels of safe conduct expected from motor carriers. However, professional drivers often feel pressured to deliver the load as quickly as possible either to benefit financially or to appease the company. Additionally, driver fatigue can easily occur for truck drivers who fail to follow the rules.

Accidents involving commercial vehicles have a high potential for causing injury, including catastrophic injuries and wrongful death. When the negligence of truck drivers or trucking companies cause these accidents, they may be held liable for compensating victims for their damages. It is critically important that the law firm you select has substantial experience in investigating truck accident cases, including violations of the federal regulations.

Bicycle Accidents

Bicyclists face unique challenges on the road because they do not enjoy the same protections offered to pedestrians and cannot contend with the power and size of automobiles. More people than ever are riding bicycles, whether for commuting to work, exercising, or simply enjoying the outdoors. Cities are becoming more bicycle-friendly, as bike lanes are installed and new laws passed to protect safety.  Those who bike to work are doing so to remain active and to rely less on their cars. Car drivers should respect this choice and be on the lookout for bicyclists. Unfortunately, accidents between cars and bicycles are common and often the result of a careless or distracted vehicle driver.

Bicycle accidents caused by a car, truck, van, bus, SUV, or other motor vehicle can cause serious injuries. A biker’s head, legs, arms and knees are the most likely to be injured in an accident, and can include such injuries as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, paraplegia, quadriplegia, and fractured bones. A biker who has been hit on the street, crosswalk, bike lane, or road may have pain and severe injuries which can be very difficult to cope with, and warrant a consultation with an experienced and aggressive bicycle accident lawyer.

Off-Road/Recreational Vehicles

Recreational vehicles provide enjoyment in a variety of ways, whether it’s off-roading with your dirt bikes or ATV, or driving alone a country road in your RV. Unfortunately, they account for a significant number of injuries every year. Because so many people injured in ATV or dirt bike accidents are unlicensed, uninsured or underage drivers, a wide variety of other issues can also arise. Accidents often occur because drivers and passengers do not think of them in the same way as automobiles, trucks, or even motorcycles.  Unseen obstacles, defective design, and manufacturing are leading causes of an accident. These accidents often lead to serious, life-altering injuries, and can put a significant financial burden on those who have been injured.

ATV manufacturers go to great expense to market their off-road vehicles as safe. The truth is a large number of ATV and recreational vehicle accidents occur because of defective or unsafe equipment. We understand the complex issues that are often involved in ATV and recreational vehicle accidents.
