Motorcycle Accidents

If you or a loved one was involved, injured, or killed in a motorcycle accident, and the other driver is at fault, their insurance provider should compensate you for physical, emotional, and property damages. In two-thirds of motorcycle accidents, the other driver, not the motorcycle rider, is responsible. Accidents involving motorcycles can be catastrophic, resulting in amputation, death, burns, broken bones, and spinal injuries, amongst other kinds of injuries. Only an experienced law firm, such as Hammond Law Firm LLC, will be well acquainted with motorcycle law, motorcycle defects, insurance carriers, and other aspects of motorcycle accidents litigation.

Commercial Transportation Accidents

If you have been injured in a commercial transportation vehicle such as a taxi-cab, rental car, or  you may be entitled to make a claim against that public transportation company.  Businesses which provide public transportation are also known as “common carriers,” and they are subject to common carrier law. The plaintiff must be able to show that the company and its employees did not exercise reasonable precaution. Public transportation is often held to a higher standard of care for their passengers. However, common carriers are often governed by a unique set of rules that can make suing a public transportation company more difficult. For example, there is a strict window of time during which an injured party may file a lawsuit. Hammond Law Firm can help you navigate through your claim and secure the compensation you may be entitled to.
