Auto Accidents

Have you been in a car accident or suffered other personal injury?  The attorneys at SL Chapman are here to help.  In difficult times, it is important to have caring legal help that understands your stress and suffering and whose goal is helping you both legally and personally.  We understand you need to deal with the trauma of being injured to focus on healing, without outside interference and complications.

Car accidents are one of the most common sources of injury and death in the United States, with the CDC reporting that motor vehicle accidents were the 4th most common type of nonfatal injury in 2013.  Car accident victims may experience temporary or permanent disability, large medical bills, lost jobs, or lost wages.  There are also often multiple insurance companies involved, sometimes from different providers, who may attempt to deny claims wrongfully.

The attorneys at SL Chapman are dedicated to protecting the rights of accident victims.  Whether your accident occurred in a van, car, truck, motorcycle, bicycle, or as a pedestrian, our personal injury lawyers can help.

Just as every case is different, every auto accident is different, which means, there are many kinds of injuries you can suffer, but some common types include:

  • Back injury
  • Neck injury
  • Whiplash
  • Broken or fractured bones
  • Sprains
  • Cuts, abrasions and bruises
  • Knee injury
  • Spinal cord damage
  • Broken teeth
  • Jaw injury
  • Burns
  • Death

Some of these injuries, although may seem relatively minor at first could develop into long-term medical conditions that negatively impact your life.  For instance, chronic and crippling headaches often follow an auto accident and could require additional medical care and thus added medical expenses.  Our auto accident attorneys are fully aware of residual and referred pain resulting from an auto accident, even a minor accident and will include future medical expenses as part of the compensation we seek on your behalf.

Most car accidents are the result of negligence where one or both drivers fail to use reasonable care on the road to avoid causing injury to themselves or others.  We hope the information below and on related pages will help you better understand some hurdles you have to jump through along the way to securing compensation for your injuries.  If you retain us we will try to show the court the defendant owed you a duty, the defendant breached that duty, the defendant’s actions or omissions proximately caused your injuries, and damages.

Some common types of auto accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Rear-end collision
  • Side-end collision
  • Sideswipe
  • Vehicle rollover
  • Head-on collision
  • Drunk driving
  • High speed collision
  • Falling asleep at the wheel
  • Pedestrian accident
  • Distracted driving
  • Hit and run
  • Failure to yield
  • Multi vehicle pile ups
