Vehicle Accident Injuries
Ready When Accidents Happen
Attorneys at Burns and Harris are experienced advocates for victims of all types of vehicle accidents including:
The most common of all accidents causing injury, car collisions are the leading cause of death among those under the age of 18 in the U.S. If you are injured in a car accident caused by a careless, reckless or drunk driver, contact Burns and Harris quickly to build the strongest case.
Despite the best safety efforts set up by the Coast Guard and various state agencies, thousands of people are injured every year as a result of negligence, reckless operation, and operating a boat while intoxicated.
Causes of truck crashes involve tired drivers, uncontrollable load weight, inadequate maintenance, traffic hazards, and weather. Proving liability in trucking accidents is more complex than in car crashes since most motor carriers employ lawyers to look out for drivers. If injured, you may be entitled to large cash damages for wrongful death, physical disfigurement, pain and suffering, lost income, and lost earning capacity.
Motorcycle accidents are among the most dangerous. They may occur because of maintenance negligence, carelessness/recklessness on the part of other drivers, dangerous conditions, or product liability. Burns and Harris can help an injured driver establish the cause of an accident and build a case against responsible parties to help recover medical and other expenses.
When an airplane crashes, the first legal task is to discover the cause. Some causes include pilot error (most frequent), design flaws, mechanical failure, and extreme weather conditions. Once a cause is determined, it is possible to decide if there is a basis for a lawsuit.
In these accidents, the train engineer, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), or another party may be liable. When a pedestrian comes into contact with a moving train, the outcome is almost always tragic.
