Vehicle crashes kill over 35,000 people a year and send more than 2.3 million people to hospitals annually. Many times, these collision occur due to the negligence of a driver. Drunk drivers, texting drivers, or fatigued drivers are often the cause of avoidable collisions. Payne Mitchell Ramsey has successfully handled (through both settlement and trial) hundreds of tragic motor vehicle crashes.
In addition to typical motor vehicle collisions, Payne Mitchell Ramsey has extensive experience handling cases involving heavy commercial vehicles. It’s as obvious as it is tragic — when a large commercial truck hits a passenger car, the occupants of the car are most likely to suffer. In fact, 98 percent of the individuals killed in such collisions are in the passenger car.
No matter how safe a vehicle you select or how responsibly you operate it, you are at risk from the actions of others. And, to make matters worse, many trucking companies do very little to train or monitor their drivers. Some even encourage their operators to exceed the speed limit or drive when tired, by offering financial incentives by the mile or the load.
At Payne Mitchell Ramsey, our attorneys have an understanding of the complex regulations governing trucking safety, and the experience of handling multimillion-dollar cases. As always, our goal is to encourage safer operations and improved standards, making the roads less dangerous for trucks and passenger vehicles alike.
