RAM vehicles are intended for customers seeking a high-performing truck. It was previously part of the Dodge line of trucks and is produced by Chrysler. The potential for these vehicles to be equipped with powerful engines allows for heavy-duty use, and when it is involved in a collision, a RAM vehicle can cause serious damage. Some RAM models are now in their fourth generation, with updates that provide for a high level of horsepower and multiple engine choices. Raleigh RAM accident lawyer Carl Nagle is familiar with these vehicles, and he is equipped to handle legal claims brought by accident victims injured in a crash with one of these trucks. Before founding Nagle & Associates, Mr. Nagle worked as an insurance defense attorney and insurance claims adjuster. His inside knowledge allows for an appreciation of defense tactics and strategies used by insurers to minimize the claims of victims. As a car accident attorney, Mr. Nagle now focuses only on helping people injured by the careless conduct of other drivers and flaws in vehicles. He knows how to present strong evidence of the true impact of an accident upon a victim's life. The success of Mr. Nagle and the team at Nagle & Associates is evident in our record of recovering hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for injured people and their families throughout the state, including in the areas around Asheville, Wilmington, Raleigh, and Winston-Salem.File a Personal Injury Claim for Damages After a RAM Accident
RAM vehicles are much heavier than passenger cars, and their weight and momentum can cause catastrophic damage when they are involved in a collision. Despite the fact that RAM vehicles are large, their drivers have a duty to operate them safely, avoiding any conduct that puts others at risk of harm. Individuals hurt in a RAM accident can set forth their right to compensation from at-fault parties, including potentially the RAM manufacturer as well as negligent drivers.
People hurt in a RAM vehicle crash can bring a legal claim against the driver, as well as other defendants. For example, manufacturing defects like faulty brakes or tires, if they are proven to have contributed to the accident, may allow the victim to assert that those involved in the manufacturing process should be strictly liable for the harm. The victim would need to show that at the time that the vehicle left the maker’s control, the defect was present, and it ultimately caused the accident. A RAM accident attorney can advise Raleigh residents and others in North Carolina on whether a manufacturing defect claim may be appropriate in their case.
In addition to the manufacturer, drivers who fail to exercise care may be at-fault in a personal injury claim following a RAM accident. Proving that the driver was negligent requires the victim to show that based on the circumstances, the driver did not meet their duty of care, and this breached duty directly led to the accident. A duty of care is owed by all drivers, regardless of the size or type of their vehicle.
Victims of an accident involving a RAM truck may face life-altering injuries, including permanent disabilities and impairments. Individuals who cannot return to their previous employment may make a legal claim for reduced earnings, as well as lost wages from work that was missed. Property damage, medical bills for current and future care, and other quantifiable costs should be set forth in a clear manner in order to secure these damages from an at-fault party.Discuss Your Case with a RAM Accident Lawyer at our Raleigh Firm
