Holding Negligent Drivers Accountable

Insurance companies aggressively defend against car accident injury claims. If you were injured by a careless driver, you will likely be in an uphill battle to obtain the compensation you need to recover from your losses. This is why it is so important to have an experienced personal injury attorney on your side.

Our lawyers have the experience, skill and resources to fully investigate car accidents and to determine causation and liability. We can help you find the facts and uncover evidence of driver negligence, including:

  • Distracted driving, including texting while driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Speeding
  • Reckless driving
  • Lane violations
  • Red light violations
  • Tailgating
  • Road rage

Insurance companies have teams of attorneys and investigators who are employed to help limit and deny compensation for injury victims. Our law firm is on the side of individuals injured in car accidents. We have successfully handled hundreds of car accident injury claims and recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients.

Experienced Legal Representation for Fatal Auto Accidents

We have handled every type of traffic fatality — auto collisions and rollovers, truck and 18-wheeler wrecks, motorcycle crashes, and pedestrians or bicyclists hit by cars. Attorney Larry Tylka conducts a prompt and thorough investigation to trace the cause of the crash. We have won damages for accidents caused by drunk driving, distracted driving, speeding, reckless driving and other negligence.

A wrongful death lawsuit is a claim on behalf of the survivors for a fatal car wreck or truck accident. The purpose is to compensate the family for:

  • Medical bills and funeral expenses
  • Income or services the deceased would have provided over his or her natural lifetime
  • The irreplaceable love, support, companionship and contributions to family life

If your loved one lived for a time after the crash, a separate survivor action may seek damages for conscious pain or suffering experienced prior to death.
