Raleigh Attorney Compassionately Representing Motor Vehicle Accident Victims
Thousands of Americans are injured or killed each year in vehicle accidents, many of which were the fault of the other driver. It can happen in just an instant. One moment you're driving down the highway; the next minute, your life and that of your family has changed dramatically. When these types of accidents happen, you need someone to help you fight for the money you need to help pay your medical bills and help support your family until you are able to work again. You also want to push for generous payment for your pain, suffering, scarring and future losses.
At Nagle and Associates, we understand that you don't want to get bogged down with courtroom proceedings and legal details. You just want things to get back to the way they were before the accident. That's what we focus on--getting you the compensation you need to get your life back to normal with as little disruption as possible. We don't expect you to be experts in personal injury law; that's where we come in. We have the training, experience and contacts to see that your interests are well represented and your family is protected.
Below are the types of situations we can help you with:
Sometimes accidents happen because something wasn't built or designed correctly on the vehicle. This might include your brakes failing, your gas tank exploding or your air bags failing to deploy.
Bicycle and pedestrian accidents
Each year, nearly 6,000 pedestrians are killed by vehicles...and an additional 129,000 are injured, according to the CDC. People on bicycles are also extremely vulnerable to road accidents. If you or someone you know has been hurt in this type of accident, we can help.
Car accidents run the gamut from simple collisions to life-threatening accidents. They may involve two or more automobiles as well as a car and a truck, motorcycle, bus or other vehicle. Sometimes, it's the vehicle itself that causes the accident; sometimes, it's the other driver. Whatever the circumstances, we can help you sort it out and collect the compensation you need.
The loss of a limb, the loss of your sight or a serious head injury are things that will change your life and those of your family forever. While we can't restore your arm or your sight, we can help you get money so that you and your family won't have to struggle as a result of your injury.
While the number of drunk driving accidents are down from where they were a decade ago, there are still more than 10,000 fatalities each year in the United States from such accidents. We have extensive experience pursuing injury claims against drunk drivers.
Hit and run accidents
It's bad enough that you are injured in an accident. It's worse that the person responsible doesn't even stick around to get you help or report the accident. After the police do their work, we'll help make sure the person responsible pays for your medical bills and your suffering.
Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable on America's highways. More than 5,200 people die as a result of motorcycle accidents each year, and that number is rising. Carl Nagle is a fellow rider, and we have extensive experience handling motorcycle accident cases throughout NC.
Public transportation accidents
When a bus, a trolley or a rapid transit train collides with a passenger vehicle, the results are often tragic. Since most public transportation companies are owned by government entities, it can be tricky to sue the operators and get compensation. However, we have the experience to cut through the red tape and get you what you deserve.
Taxicab, Lyft, Uber and ride sharing accidents
You expect to be safe when you get into a taxicab. However, these drivers get into accidents just like non-commercial drivers. If you use ride sharing services like Lyft or Uber, these drivers can be more difficult to sue, since the services usually cap their liability and their driver’s car insurance coverage does not apply. However, we've been successful in getting compensation for clients when commercial drivers are involved.
Commercial trucks weigh 20 to 30 times more than the average passenger vehicle. Because of this, they can cause a lot of damage in an accident. As a result, more than 5,200 occupants of passenger vehicles are killed each year in accidents involving trucks.
Wrongful death is a legal claim that offers the immediate family of the deceased to sue the person or company responsible for that death in civil court. In most states, this includes the spouse, parents and children. It's important, however, to act reasonably quickly. Depending on the circumstances, there is a reduced time limit to filing these types of cases.
