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.

“My daughter was injured during birth when a catheter punctured my womb. She suffered from a loss of blood, and several other mistakes were made before she was finally resuscitated. My mother, who is a nurse, suggested Judy Massong. With her as my attorney, I felt I was in the most experienced hands. With Judy's help, we settled twice, once with the hospital and again with the medical device manufacturer. Judy is as strong as a bulldog, and she always made it her goal to keep us informed and help us find the resolution we needed as a family. We have worked hard on my daughter’s recovery, and as challenging as it can be, she is an affectionate, loving, social, bright little girl.” Julie L.
