One of the most common scenarios where our clients are injured is in a car accident. No matter how safely our clients drive, they still share the road with other drivers who may not be a careful or who may not being paying attention at the time of the accident. Some of the most common causes of car accidents are:
Distracted Driving- There are many things that can distract a driver while they are driving, such as talking on the phone, talking to other passengers, texting, operating a GPS system, or anything else that prevents the driver from paying full attention to driving. Driving without paying full attention to the road is negligent and, if you were injured by a distracted driver, Leavitt Legal Group can help you.
Intoxicated Driving- It is no secret that driving while intoxicated impairs the driver's ability to fully concentrate on the road and operate their vehicle safely. Operating a vehicle while intoxicated is negligent and, if you were injured by an intoxicated driver, Leavitt Legal Group can help you.
Speeding- When a driver is speeding they reduce the time they have to react to changes in their environment, such as a car in front of them changing lanes or stopping. If you were injured by a driver who was speeding, Leavitt Legal group can help you.
Unsafe Driving for the Weather Conditions- When the weather is bad, drivers should slow down and drive more carefully. When a driver fails to alter their driving to fit their weather conditions, they could be negligent. If you were injured by a driver who was driving too fast in the rain, snow, or other weather conditions Leavitt Legal group can help you.
Regardless of the cause of the accident, if you have been injured by the negligent or reckless driving of someone else you need an advocate who will fight to help make sure you are compensated for the injuries to your body as well as your property. At Leavitt Legal Group we will put you in touch with a network of doctors and medical professionals who will be able to diagnose your injuries, develop a treatment plan to restore your health, and assist you on your path to rehabilitation.
Many of the causes and considerations present in a motorcycle accident case are the same as a car accident case, with one major exception: the injuries to the motorcycle rider. Because the motorcycle rider is on a motorcycle, instead of inside a vehicle, they are much more likely to be injured in an accident. Because of this, it is often critical for motorcyclists involved in an accident to seek medical treatment immediately. Seeking immediate medical treatment helps the victim by starting of the road to recovery quickly, but it also has the added benefit of documenting injuries which is crucial for a personal injury claim. At Leavitt Legal Group we will refer you to a network of doctors and medical professionals who will be able to provide you the treatment you need, but also start providing us with the information we need to building a compelling case to take to arbitration, mediation, or litigation.
Slip and Fall
Another common scenario where people are injured is from slip and fall accidents. These accidents often occur in busy locations, such as grocery stores, malls, amusement parks, hotels, or casinos and have a wide variety of causes, such as a wet or improperly maintained flooring, improperly maintained handrails, or even poor lighting. One of the most critical factors in determining whether a property owner was negligent is to determine whether the injured person was an invitee, a licensee, or a trespasser. A property owner has a duty to make their premises safe for anyone who enters, but they owe a higher duty to those who are invited onto the property for the property owners benefit. For example, if you were hurt while shopping in a retail store or grocery store, you would be considered an invitee, and the store owner would owe you a higher duty of care than if you were a trespasser.
Regardless of the setting and whether you were an an invitee, a licensee, or a trespasser, you should contact Leavitt Legal Group today if you were injured on someone else's property. Inspecting the scene of the accident quickly can often provide crucial information that will help us build a case to show the property owner was negligent in how they maintained the property. If you have slipped and fallen on somewhere else's property, call Leavitt Legal Group today for your free consultation.
One of the worst outcomes from a personal injury accident is when the victim dies. The causes of death can vary widely, but if the death was caused by the negligent actions of another, the victim's family is entitled to compensation for the loss of their loved one. The two biggest tasks in a wrongful death lawsuit are establishing liability and determining the amount of loss. Both of these questions usually require testimony from medical and economic experts, which is why Leavitt legal Group will reach out to its network of experts and find the expert you need to build a strong case. If your loved one has died because of the negligent actions of another, call Leavitt Legal Group immediately so we ensure you are compensated for your loss.
