Automobile and Trucking Accidents

Our roads are filled with distracted and impaired drivers, and an accident can be devastating to families, especially if there are injuries or even a death. According to a June 2014 study by the General Motors Foundation, auto accidents are the No. 1 killer of teenagers, more than homicides or suicides.

Auto accidents can cause head traumas, bone fractures, back injuries, sprains, and neck and head whiplashes. Often such injuries can lead to an inability to work, emotional suffering, and long-term disabilities that cost tens of thousands in medical expenses.

To make matters worse, insurance companies will often look for reasons not to pay, or there may not be sufficient insurance available to fully compensate for the losses — at least not without a fight.

Frequent causes of auto accidents include alcohol or drug impairment, speeding, following too closely, failing to yield the right-of-way, aggressive driving, reckless driving, and distraction or inattention.

Trucking accidents also cause a high percentage of deaths on our roadways. Common causes of trucking accidents include driver fatigue, inexperience, overloaded or improperly loaded trucks, jackknifing, and rollovers. Proving fault in trucking accidents is much more complex than automobile accident cases.

When an automobile or trucking accident causes injury or death, the everyday life of victims and their families can be turned upside down. At Diamond~Massong, we have a proven track record of winning insurance battles and getting our clients fairly compensated.

“I was only 18 when my son Lucas was born and didn’t realize his slow development was due to an injury during birth. When I met Judy Massong, I was young, naïve, and destitute. She was compassionate, cared a lot about Lucas, and alleviated my fears about going to trial. Her knowledge of medical terminology was incredibly helpful and contributed to the verdict against the hospital. I am still caring for my son, who requires 24-hour care, and this would not have been possible without Judy’s representation. She is awesome.” Cheryl Marshall
