If you’ve been involved in a transportation accident of any type, a transportation accident lawyer may be able to help—but it’s important to act fast. Some states operate under a No Fault law, which means that negligent drivers may be held accountable for injuries caused to others within a certain period of time. For motor vehicle-related cases, that is usually 30 days after the incident. Cases of accidents or injuries involving public transportation entities must meet several preconditions within a short period of time before a lawsuit can be filed.
Other types of qualifying transportation incidents include bicycle and skateboard accidents, hit and run cases, drunk driving, pedestrian accidents, and motorcycle collisions. We can also defend you in cases where vehicles were improperly maintained, or where environmental factors contributed to an accident, such as poor lighting or improper placement of signs or rails.
