Types of Car Accidents
Need a Lawyer for a Car Accident in Clearwater, FL? Give Us a Call Today!
The type of car accident you are in can directly affect the compensation to which you are entitled, as well as how you obtain that compensation. Since all cases are different—no two accidents exactly alike—and all injuries and damages are also unique, our Clearwater personal injury lawyer makes it a top priority to address your situation on an individual basis.
Having handled many different types of car accident cases throughout the years, our trial attorney possesses the insight and legal skills needed to effectively protect your rights in a variety of situations. We provide representation to victims throughout Clearwater, St. Petersburg, and the surrounding communities of the Tampa Bay Area for any type of auto accident, including multi-vehicle accidents, single-vehicle accidents, and other unique situations.
Multi-Vehicle Car Accidents
Whether you or your loved one has been injured in a rear-end collision, side-impact collision, head-on collision, or pile up, our trial lawyers are here to fight on your behalf. In these types of accidents, we work to establish the at-fault party and to clearly and convincingly present them as being liable for your damages. The ways in which we establish liability will be influenced by the personal circumstances involved in your case. From highlighting the negligence or wrongful act of another driver, possible roadway defects, auto part defects, or the failures of public transportation companies, we work toward ensuring that the at-fault party is held accountable.
Single-Vehicle Car Accidents
Single-vehicle auto accidents are common occurrences that may be caused by roadway defects, auto part defects, and other situations in which another party can be held liable. If a defective tire blowout caused you to swerve off the road and caused a single-vehicle accident, for example, the auto part manufacturer can be held liable for your injuries and damages. Additionally, many single-vehicle accidents involve situations in which a driver attempts to avoid a collision with another driver who may swerve into their lane or otherwise place them in danger. In these circumstances, we will pursue a recovery from the insurance company, even if the other driver was never found or ticketed.
Other Types of Collisions
There may be times when car accidents involve unique situations or when it may be difficult to determine who can be held at fault for causing the accident. In those situations our firm will obtain a professional engineer to assess the accident and determine liability. Additionally, Attorney Cope draws from training and experience as a former prosecutor to handle cases that involve drunk drivers. In drunk driving accidents, for instance, Attorney Cope utilizes his experience to help injured victims maximize their recovery by pursuing punitive damages. Our firm can also represent victims injured in car accidents at railroad intersections, in truck accidents, and in other situations that require the personalized service we deliver.
If you are concerned about how the type of car accident you were involved in may affect your ability to obtain compensation, do not hesitate to schedule a free case evaluation with a member of our legal team. In addition to evaluating your case, we can also educate you about your rights and how we can apply applicable laws to your situation for your benefit. We can also help you determine who can be held at fault for causing your accident, which can ultimately allow our firm to pursue the compensation to which you are entitled.
