Stray Animal Accident:

Many accidents are caused by stray or wild animals and people attempting to avoid them or save them, resulting in an accident. These accidents sometimes result in serious injury or death.

Roll Over Accidents:

Roll-over accidents are sometimes caused by the malfunction of air brakes or the negligence or inattention of the driver. In many cases the victims in the accident are small vehicle drivers or pedestrians.

Over Turned Truck Accident:

Truck accidents can result in complex legal issues, including whether the truck was properly maintained, whether the truck driver maintained a driver’s log, whether the truck is owned and insured by a corporation or the driver themselves. These complicated legal issues typically require an attorney to sort through.
