Windsor Area Personal Injury Attorneys
We’re Here for You
Do you live in the Windsor area? Are you a bicyclist or motorcycle enthusiast? Or perhaps you were at one time, but are no longer because you’ve sustained serious injuries in a tragic accident?
On the other hand, perhaps riding a motorcycle or a bicycle is not your thing and you drive in a car as the majority of us do. You felt safe on the road way until you were the unwitting victim of a dangerous and destructive accident with a huge 18-wheeler or semi-truck.
If any of these scenarios sound familiar and you have come across our page, you may be contemplating filing a personal injury lawsuit. If so, you’ve arrived at the right place. At Henderson Law, we know that these sorts of accidents are all too common. We also know that the damage sustained as a result can be significant and lasting. We know that a significant number of these accidents occur in Windsor and across the state of California each year. And we know that, though you may feel overwhelmed, you do not have to feel that you are alone.
If you are the victim of one of these accidents, you have rights under the law and you may be entitled to significant damages. At Henderson Law, we would like to fight to help you recover the compensation you deserve.
What Do All of These Accidents Have in Common?
You may think that each of these sort of accidents are very different in nature, and in some ways this is true. Certainly, a bicycle is substantially different from an 18-wheeler truck. However, they have more in common than you might initially expect.
For one thing, in each of these situations, you, the victim, were likely at a significant disadvantage. If you were in a car involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler, you were the party at a significant disadvantage in terms of size and damage likely incurred. The same applies if you are a cyclist or a motorcyclist who has been involved in an accident with another vehicle. Simply by the nature of the accident itself, it’s a likely possibility that you were the party who incurred the most significant and lasting damage.
Another factor that these accidents have in common is a causative factor – namely, negligence. It is not at all uncommon for truck drivers to be exhausted as they deprive themselves of sleep to meet the demands of a tight delivery schedule. Likewise, it is not uncommon for truck drivers to take drugs or medication in order to stay awake or to be distracted or negligent in the manner that they secure items to their truck or maintain their vehicles. As one would expect, this negligence often causes accidents. But truck drivers are not alone.
In our busy distracted world today, there are distracted drivers of all kinds. There are individuals fiddling with the radio when they should be watching the road. There are people who do not follow the speed limit or follow other necessary rules of the road. And there a manufacturers who, on occasion, negligently create products with defects that can lead to accidents. Any and all of these types of negligence could easily contribute to an accident that has lasting and significant damage to another. Perhaps you are a victim of that negligence. If so, we are very sorry, and we want to help you.
What Damages Might I Be Entitled To?
The laws surrounding truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, and bicycle accidents can be complex. Any number of parties, in addition to the driver, may be responsible. This can include insurance companies, those responsible for road maintenance, manufacturers, and others. Likewise, under the law, there are a variety of potential damages that may be available. These include damages for medical bills (both past and future), lost wages, lost potential to earn future wages, loss of consortium, damages for pain and suffering or disfigurement, and even damages for wrongful death – just to name a few options of many. Consulting with an attorney knowledgeable about the law and your rights under the law is an important first step toward recovery.
