Uninsured Motorists / Hit and Run Accidents
The attorneys at Beers & Gordon, P.A. will ensure that you are aware of all available insurance coverage for your accident. We will aggressively seek all available coverage to ensure just compensation for you. Jim Gordon and David Beers understand the insurance issues involved in settling and handling cases involving this type of coverage.
Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage is often available in a hit and run accident when the party-at-fault leaves the scene. If you are injured during an accident like this, you should immediately contact the police and try to find any witnesses who saw the accident. This does not, however, guarantee that the driver will be found, but if you have incurred medical expenses, loss of income, or pain and suffering as a result, you should contact the attorneys at Beers and Gordon. We may be able to help you recover some of what you have lost from injuries and damages.
Accidents involving commercial vehicles and trucks are different than more traditional auto accidents for a number of reasons, two of which are extremely important. First, the impact between vehicles in these accidents can be far more catastrophic and deadly. Secondly, the trucking industry is highly regulated and drivers are held accountable for their conduct on the road. There are many State and Federal guidelines that affect the the industry and our attorneys understand these regulations. Violations can be important in determining who was at fault and to what extent.
The attorneys at Beers and Gordon have handled truck accident cases involving all types of commercial transport vehicles, including semis, tractor trailers, 18-wheelers, dump trucks, and even concrete mixers. We have seen truck accidents caused by a variety of factors, including improper or negligent maintenance, inadequate or poor training, driver exhaustion–including falling asleep at the wheel, operator error–such as failure to obey traffic signs, or simply driving too fast for the conditions of the road.
