The most common types of auto accidents handled at Carabin Shaw law firm include:Car Accident
Passenger vehicle accidents are the most common type of accident claim our Dallas/Fort Worth car wreck lawyers handle. Most drivers operate this kind of vehicle, so these are the most statistically likely collisions on DFW roads.Truck/18-Wheeler Accident
Big truck accidents are often the most deadly types of auto accidents. Because of the sheer size and force of a semi-truck, passengers in smaller vehicles are unlikely to survive these collisions unscathed.Motorcycle Accident
Motorcycle accidents often result in friction burns (road rash), internal injuries, or head trauma. When other drivers fail to accommodate motorcyclists, it is almost always the cyclist that bears the brunt of the injury.Workplace Vehicle Accident
If you were injured in a collision while operating a vehicle during the course of your employment, you may be entitled to worker’s compensation benefits. If your employer does not subscribe to worker’s compensation insurance, you should contact a personal injury attorney.Rear-End Collisions
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration reports that a majority of rear-end collisions are caused by distracted driving. Rear-end collisions can lead to multiple car pile-ups and a substantial amount of damages. Victims of these collisions have the right to hold distracted drivers financially accountable for their damages.Rideshare Accidents
If you have been injured in an Uber, Lyft, or other rideshare vehicle, you may be eligible to sue for compensation. However, it can take an experienced attorney to navigate the complexities of a rideshare collision accident claim.Auto Accidents Resulting in Wrongful Death
If you have lost a loved one due to the negligence of other drivers, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death suit. Though no settlement can make up for the loss of your loved one, you deserve compensation for your loss as well as funeral and medical costs.
