A personal injury claim can be used to compensate a victim for the negligent or intentional actions of others. Unfortunately, many accident victims do not realize that their injuries may be the result of another person’s negligence, leaving them uncompensated for their injuries and often buried in debt. There are many types of personal injury claims, including: motor vehicle collisions, motorcycle accidents, nursing home abuse, slip and falls, animal bites, pedestrian accidents, bicycle accidents, ATV accidents, wrongful death and workers' compensation. At Aguiar Injury Lawyers, we know that injuries sustained in these types of accidents can be life altering. We are here to help you obtain compensation for past and future medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, so that you may focus on your recovery. If you have suffered an injury due to the carelessness of another party, you may be eligible to recover monetary compensation.
Auto - Car accidents are extremely common. The addition of technology such as cellular phones, tablet computers, and e-readers adds to the many distractions that drivers already face. Drivers everywhere are paying less attention to their surroundings, often leading to vehicle collisions. As a result, the victim of a negligent driver may face serious injury, permanent disability, and financial ruin.
Tractor Trailer - Every 16 minutes, a person is injured or dies in an accident involving a tractor-trailer, or semi-truck. The majority of accidents involving tractor-trailers are caused by the negligence of the truck driver, often due to driver fatigue.
Motorcycle - Statistics maintained by the Kentucky State Police prove that deaths and injuries resulting from motorcycle collisions are steadily increasing. Unfortunately, distracted drivers often do not see motorcycles until it is too late to avoid an accident.
