Chances are, either you or someone you know has been involved in a car accident or a motorcycle accident. Car accidents are one of the leading causes of deaths and injuries in the United States. According to NTHSA, in 2000, there were an estimated 6.3 million highway traffic crashes, which killed more than 41,000 and injured more than 3.1 million people. Speeding, traffic violations, road conditions, distracted motorists, and impaired drivers, and automobile defects cause most car accidents.
Motorcycles have also proven to be an incredibly dangerous mode of transportation, and motorcycle accidents generally cause severe and/or catastrophic injuries or death. Statistics have shown that between the years of 1975 and 1999, more than 38,000 fatalities resulted from motorcycle accidents. Sadly, the Fatality Analysis Reporting System has indicated that these motorcycle fatality statistics are on the rise.

We assist our clients in securing medical evaluations to determine how serious the victim’s injuries are, what type of medical treatment is needed, how the victim’s injuries will affect him or her in the future, and the potential amount of lost wages.

The law provides that car accident and motorcycle accident victims are entitled to fair compensation for their losses, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages, disability, and possibly more. It is important to understand that time is a main factor in a car or motorcycle accident claim. It is always possible that evidence in your case could be lost, witnesses could disappear, the statue of limitations could pass and memories of crash details could fade. Without an attorney’s guidance and experience, you may never be compensated for the full value of your claim. At Flynn & Gottlieb, we understand the incredible impact that a collision can have on an individual and his or her family.
