Car accidents

Whether you're driving down Buhl Farm Drive, Hermitage Road, or another street in Hermitage, an accident can happen at any time. The injuries suffered in a car accident can be very serious, some requiring surgery, hospitalization and a lengthy recovery period. And if your injury leaves you unable to go back to work, there's less income coming in.

The driver that caused your accident likely won't accept responsibility. And the insurance company will take their side, because they don't want to pay you any money at all. They may make you a lowball settlement offer soon after your accident, but it won't come close to covering all the damage you have suffered.

That's why you need an experienced Hermitage car accident attorney fighting for you. We investigate your crash to find evidence that proves a negligent driver was at fault. Then we aggressively pursue financial compensation on your behalf.

Truck accidents

Trucks travel the roads of Hermitage every single day, carrying cargo to their destination. But a truck accident can leave people seriously hurt. Some examples of injuries seen in truck accidents include internal injuries, broken bones, spinal cord injuries and traumatic brain injury. Victims face a long recovery period and medical expenses that can become overwhelming.

Truck accidents are often caused by negligence. A truck driver could have been distracted, speeding, fatigued or driving under the influence of alcohol. A trucking company may have hired an inexperienced driver, or failed to keep their trucks in good working order. But neither are likely to accept responsibility, making recovering financial compensation difficult.

Our firm has been helping truck accident victims for decades. We can investigate your truck accident and build a strong case that holds negligent parties accountable. Then we fight to help you recover the financial compensation you need and deserve. Contact us today to speak with an experienced Hermitage truck accident lawyer.

Highway accidents

Highways in the Hermitage area, such as US 62, are used every day by drivers. Motor vehicles on highways travel at high speeds. So when there's an accident, people can be seriously injured.

When there's a highway accident, the negligent drivers who caused it rarely accept responsibility. And insurance companies often try to pay as little as possible.

Don't believe them. Our law firm build strong cases that hold negligent parties accountable and help the injured recover the compensation they need and deserve. Many times, we can resolve cases through a negotiated settlement. If not, our attorneys are skilled litigators who have won significant awards for clients in court.

Many people in Hermitage rely on buses or trains to get where they're going. But an accident can leave passengers with serious injuries. They are suddenly faced with overwhelming medical bills. And if they can't work because of their injury, there is less income coming in. Many people who have been hurt in a transit accident aren't sure what to do next.

Several different parties can be involved in a transit accident, including the driver, the transit company and the manufacturer of defective parts. But all may deny responsibility for the accident.

Pedestrian accidents

People can be seen walking out in Hermitage every day. We usually don't think about the possibility of being in an accident when we're out for a walk. But pedestrian accidents happen every year that leave people seriously hurt. Because pedestrians have no protection when they are hit by a car or truck, they can suffer very severe injuries.

The cause of pedestrian accidents is almost always negligent drivers. These include drivers who were speeding, or distracted, or drunk, or were falling asleep at the wheel. But they typically deny responsibility. And the insurance company will stand by them because they would prefer to pay nothing at all.

Our Hermitage pedestrian accident lawyers know how to build strong cases that hold negligent drivers accountable. Many times, we are able to get the insurance company to agree to a negotiated settlement that meets your needs. But if they won't negotiate, we are ready to fight for your rights in court.

Premises liability

Many accidents in Hermitage occur on someone else's property - such as a private home, parking lots, restaurants, stores, nightclubs and hotels. The owners of these properties have a responsibility to take measures to keep their premises reasonably safe. When someone gets hurt on their property in an accident, they can be held responsible. A Hermitage premises liability attorney can help.

But recovering financial compensation after an accident can be difficult. The property owner may deny doing anything wrong and may even blame you for what happened. Insurance companies typically try to pay you as little as they possibly can - preferably nothing at all.

Our firm has been helping the injured for decades. We investigate your accident to find evidence that proves you were the victim of negligence. Then we fight to help you recover the financial compensation you deserve for your injuries. Many times, we are able to reach a settlement with the insurance company that meets your needs.

And when that accident was caused by the negligence of another, family members can experience a wide range of emotions, including anger, frustration and confusion. Our firm offers compassionate representation and the experience needed to help get justice for your loved one.

Wrongful death cases can be complicated, because negligent parties often deny any responsibility for what happened. And insurance companies look for ways to pay you as little as possible, if they pay anything at all.

That's why you need an experienced Hermitage wrongful death attorney on your side. Our firm investigates your loved one's accident to find out what really happened. Then we help you recover compensation to hold the negligent parties accountable.
