Types of Motor Vehicle Accidents

We work with in-house investigators, outside experts, and various authorities to gather evidence and establish liability for auto accidents. With our proven track record and our experienced, successful attorneys, we can handle your case no matter how complicated. 

Car Accidents

Car accidents can range from small fender-benders to rollover accidents or multiple vehicle pile-ups. You should not have to face claims adjusters and insurance companies alone. Our experienced firm can help you receive compensation for the damages and pain suffered after an accident. We can even help victims who were injured during Uber rides or similar ridesharing apps.

Truck Accidents

The occupants of smaller vehicles always bear the brunt of a collision with a large truck, and can often suffer devastating injuries. If you or a loved one has been involved in a truck accident, gaining compensation can be a very difficult battle with the trucking company, driver, and separate insurance providers. Whether you were injured as the result of a jackknife accident, rollover, or similar serious situation, we can fight for you, making sure you are able to focus on recovery.

Motorcycle Accidents

Victims of motorcycle accidents can suffer from catastrophic injuries, and in some tragic cases, even death. With the help of Bennett Johnson, LLP, you and your loved ones can fight for restitution to help with medical expenses and damages.

Hit and Run Accidents

Drivers are required to exchange information after a collision, but this does not always happen. If you have been involved in an accident and the other driver flees the scene, our team can often help you identify the other driver, or recover damages from your own insurance company.

Our team can help you face recovery after the negligent or reckless behavior of another party.

Pedestrian Accidents

Nearly 5,000 pedestrians were killed in auto accidents in 2013 alone. It can be difficult to seek compensation for injuries that you or a loved one have sustained as an innocent bystander. Our firm can represent you in a pedestrian accident case, helping you to face the future with successful, experienced legal counsel.

Bicycle Accidents

Cyclists have complete freedom of the open road, but unlike traditional motor vehicles, they lack the safety features that can prevent catastrophic accidents. If you've been involved in a bicycle accident, our team will work tirelessly to secure your medical expenses and seek full restitution. 

DUI Accidents

Despite the extreme danger of driving under the influence of mind-altering substances, drunk driving accidents still kill more than 10,000 individuals every year. Our proven attorneys can fight for you and your loved ones if you have suffered because of another driver's reckless behavior.

Distracted Drivers

More and more drivers are easily distracted with phones, navigation systems, and car stereos. Not focusing on the road for just a moment can lead to significant accidents and damage. To recover from an incident caused by the negligence and reckless behavior of another driver, our team can gather evidence and fight for your rights to restitution.

Bus Accidents

With no seat belts, the freedom to move about the cabin, and a potentially high number of passengers, bus accidents can occur easily, and with devastating results. If you or a loved one has been injured in a bus accident, our attorneys will help you understand your legal rights and seek full restitution. 

Train Accidents

Although generally considered a safe mode of transportation, train accidents can occur, and often with very serious injuries. Whether a train car derails, or an engineer operates with negligence, our attorneys will safeguard you and your loved ones and seek full compensation.
