Motor vehicle accidents are an all too common occurrence and Murray L. Greenfield & Associates have decades of experience representing those who have been involved in an accident as a result of driver negligence, manufacturing defects, or dangerous roads. It is our job to understand what happened in each and every accident and inform you of your options for recovering any damages as a result of an injury.
Anyone who operates a motor vehicle of any kind has the responsibility to use caution and follow all driving laws. A victim of an accident can suffer multiple types of losses that go beyond property loss and pain and suffering, including lost wages and lost future wages.
Accidents can be caused for numerous reasons, but most commonly they are the result of:
- Distraction (such as texting or talking on a cell phone.)
- Impaired driving (due to the consumption of drugs or alcohol)
- Driver fatigue
- Drivers failing to stop or signal
- Reckless driving (including swerving, running stop signs or lights and speeding)
Manufacturing or product defect, such as failed brakes, tires, steering or faulty air bags have become more prevalent in the news. Furthermore, faulty repair by a mechanic can result in accident and therefore injury.
Additionally, poorly maintained roads, improper or missing signs and other road hazards, including road work, may result in an otherwise preventable accident. In these cases, specific towns, states or construction companies may be at fault.
With the amount of accidents that occur on the road each year, insurance companies are experts in limiting or denying the claims they receive. In other words, they are not in business to pay claims.
The experienced attorneys of Murray L. Greenfield & Associates stand up to the insurance companies and parties at fault for their clients and have successfully recovered damages in even the most complex motor vehicle accidents.
Don’t feel like your insurance company is your only option and don’t attempt to seek compensation on your own. Our attorneys will work for you on a contingency basis and do not get paid until your case is won or settled.
