Negligence claims, whether they be involving a motorcycle accident, a trucking accident or regular automobile accident are very straightforward. Most of the times as a law firm, we need to investigate the case and ultimately prove that the operator of the vehicle and or the owner of the vehicle has committed some kind of act that has resulted in them getting into an accident and striking your vehicle. Those things can vary. And sometimes there’s more than one cause that we could go after.

And a negligence claim if somebody, for example, hit you from behind their negligent in the operation of their vehicle, if somebody tries to step on their brakes but their brakes wouldn’t stop in time, causing them to hit you from behind, then they’re negligent in the maintenance and or repair of their vehicle. So there are many different types of ways that we could prosecute a negligence claim.
