What is a Trial Lawyer?
The Car Crash
An auto accident can change the course of a person’s life in a split second. An injury can have far reaching impact on an entire family if a family member is unable to work, if hospital or home nursing care is required, or if the injured person’s ability to contribute to the operation of the household is altered. We offer over thirty years of service to people who are dealing with the consequences of brain injuries, head trauma, back pain and back injuries, internal organ injuries, neck injuries (sometimes called whiplash injuries), broken bones, paralysis, fractures, tears, numbness, nerve pain, concussions, burns, disfigurement and scarring, and permanent disability and impaired ability to work.
We are committed to providing high quality legal service which includes an uncompromising pursuit of our client’s legal interests, while being accessible and attentive to our clients during times of personal challenge. We understand that auto accidents also bring emotional stress over how to pay medical bills and replace damaged property. We are devoted to serving our clients by assisting them in dealing with their auto insurance company, their health insurance carrier, and the other driver’s insurance company. If a prompt settlement cannot be negotiated we promptly file suit to recover compensation for not only physical and emotional injuries, but medical bills, lost wages, and property damage.
As soon as we are retained, our legal team begins working to establish liability on the part of the driver responsible for the crash. This includes interviewing witnesses, analyzing the crash scene, and on occasion hiring experts to prove the accident was caused by the negligence, recklessness, or carelessness of the other driver. Acts of negligence that typically lead to a crash include:
- Driving while intoxicated
- Reckless driving
- Cell phone use while driving
- Texting while driving
- Failing to yield
- Disobeying a traffic signal
- Making illegal turns
- Running a stop sign
- Running a red light
- Driver fatigue or inattention
If you were injured or involved in an accident, it is critical that you consult with an attorney who has extensive trial litigation experience. If your case cannot be settled, it is crucial that your attorney understand how to prepare your case for trial and how to win your case. Mr. Holub has successfully litigated thousands of auto accident cases and knows how to effectively negotiate prompt and fair settlements.
The Truck Crash
Injury Rates are Higher in Truck Crashes.
Semi-truck collisions, or what some people call tractor trailer collisions, and what others describe as 18 wheeler collisions, involve special issues that make them different from automobile to automobile collisions. These differences are described in the article linked below.
