Have you been involved in a motor vehicle accident?
If you are an occupant of a car, truck, motorcycle, boat, bus, train, snowmobile, or all-terrain vehicle, or if you are a pedestrian or cyclist who has been struck by any of these vehicles, you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident.
If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you may be entitled to receive accident benefits under an automobile insurance policy, and you may have the right to sue the at fault party in court. Our team has experience representing clients with claims arising from all types of accidents, including complex collisions involving public transit vehicles, such as airplanes, trains and buses.
What do I do if I have been injured in a boating, snowmobile or ATV accident?
Boating, snowmobile, and ATV accidents can occur in a variety of different situations. These accidents can also happen for a variety of reasons, including: improper operation, fire, or even defects in the machine/boat itself.
In order to advance a claim, you will have to establish that the owner, operator, or manufacturer is responsible for your injuries. To help you establish this, you should take notes about the details of the accident, including the name, address, and telephone number of any witnesses.
If you suspect that the machine/boat or other safety equipment may have been defective, you should try to take photographs, and preserve the items if at all possible.
You should report the incident to police or coast guard officials. The police or coast guard officials will make a report of the incident, and you should request a copy. Try to make a note of the name and badge number of the investigating officer, if possible.
