Helping Auto Accident Victims Get Back On Their Feet
Auto accidents are a fact of life. Almost everyone will be involved in at least one auto accident during their lifetime. Thankfully, most of us will walk away unscathed and with minimal damage to the car. Negligent and dangerous drivers come in many forms, including drunk drivers, speeding drivers, inattentive drivers, angry drivers and many more. The damage to your auto is just the beginning. Life-altering injuries can affect you and your family for a lifetime.
Lost wages, pain and suffering, therapy, mental anguish and even the death of a loved one can be just some of the challenges and tragedies you face in the aftermath of an auto accident. Andrew understands what you’re going through. He’s going to hold people accountable and get every penny you’re due from the guilty parties, insurance companies and other negligent parties.
Motorcyclists Have Little Protection On The Road. We Make Sure They’re Protected In The Eyes Of The Law.
Motorcycles are a part of the roadways and woven into American culture. Who doesn’t enjoy the open road, the thrill of hearing a revving engine or the sight of great-looking bike? As fun as motorcycles are, they are one of the most common, dangerous, severe and fatal types of accidents one can be involved in. Without the protection of an auto body/cabin, the stability of four tires, air bags, seat belts and other safety features that one takes for granted when driving a car, truck or van, motorcycle accidents are messy.
Andrew G. Toennies understands the mechanics, specifics and details of motorcycle accidents. He knows how to represent bikers, passengers and families of individuals paralyzed, severely injured or killed in a motorcycle accident.
When A Pedestrian Is Involved
The numbers are staggering: Over 100,000 pedestrians are injured every year, and more tragically, approximately 60,000 of these pedestrians die from their injuries. On the face of it, it would seem that the motorist would always be at fault, but that’s not always the way the negligent party, insurance company or the other side’s lawyer sees it. There are no slam-dunk cases.
Andrew knows the suffering, medical bills, stress, loss of wages and trauma a pedestrian can suffer from the negligence of a taxi, truck, motorcyclist, bicyclist, bus or other commercial vehicle that hits a pedestrian. Whether the other driver was exceeding the speed limit, failed to stop, failed to yield in a crosswalk or the right away, or was simply inattentive or careless, we will make sure that you get your medical bills, wages, continuing care, and pain and suffering compensated and paid in full. Andrew G. Toennies is on your side; you’re in capable hands.
After An Injury, Time Is Of The Essence
Following an accident, you will most likely have to go through an insurance company to obtain compensation. But insurance companies are often incentivized to settle cases quickly and pay out as little as possible — that’s where we step in.
