Motor vehicle accidents can result in everything from minor and temporary injuries to permanent debilitating injuries, and in some cases, death.

All vehicle accidents, whether they involve automobiles, trucks, motorcycles or bicycles, share the same fundamental premise when filing a suit to recover damages. A plaintiff must show that the defendant was negligent through their actions and that the resulting injuries to the victims and damages to vehicles and property were the results of that negligence. This paves the way for victims to collect judgments to pay for their medical bills, and to compensate them for lost wages and pain and suffering.

Through our experience at the Law Office of Christopher Kalis in handling numerous cases, we know that while all motor vehicle accidents share many commonalities, there are some differences depending on the type of vehicle involved.

Truck accidents can be highly complicated due to the fact that many owners may share liability, and that because of their tremendous size differences from cars and motorcycles, trucks tend to produce more serious and life threatening injuries. Motorcycle and bicycle accidents are unique in that courts tend to favor motorcycle riders when determining liability because they know those riders have less protection on the road, placing more responsibility on car and truck drivers. Motorcycle and bicycle riders are also given the benefit of a doubt because they are required to get additional safety training before they can take to the open road.
