Car, Truck, Or Motorcycle Accidents

Accidents can be traumatic and overwhelming for any person or family involved. With extreme circumstances, some individuals are so severely injured that it alters life forever. At SW&L Attorneys in Fargo, we are experienced in the handling of car, truck, and other auto accident claims throughout North Dakota.

It’s unfortunate, but there are several different instances that may lead another driver to negligently cause an accident. A visual distraction, such as taking one’s eyes off the road for even a second. A manual distraction, which is a result of a driver removing one’s hands from the wheel. And cognitive, which is when a person lets one’s mind drift and isn’t concentrating on driving duties. Other activities like talking on a cell phone, texting while driving, eating, drinking, and speaking with others in the vehicle are all potential distractions that may result in a car or trucking accident.

What Type Of Accidents Do We Handle?

At SW&L, we represent clients who have suffered a personal injury or lost a family member or other loved one in an accident with any of the following circumstances including drunk driving/DUI, reckless driving, negligence, rear-end or side-impact collisions, accidents involving teenage drivers, rollovers & head-on collisions.

We also represent people who are injured in car or truck accidents that result from a defective product or design within an automobile like a seat belt, tire, or gas tank.

Injuries suffered as a result of a car or truck accident can be stressful and sometimes severe. Many individuals suffer from head injuries (including traumatic brain injuries), nerve damage, spinal injuries (neck and back), broken bones, knee injuries, burns, and more. We realize that after a car or truck accident, one of the first priority items on many individual’s lists is to have medical bills covered and that any other financial obligations and/or wage loss issues directly resulting from an accident be taken care of. In North Dakota, the insurance laws are complicated and often hard to understand, including situations where you are required to attend an IME or Independent Medical Examination by your insurance company. That is why hiring an attorney to assist you by working directly with the insurance companies to get you the damages you deserve is important.

Medical Expenses

Many car accidents result in minor injuries such as cuts and bruises and others result in lifelong injury, disability, or paralysis. There are many injuries that may not be immediately known after an accident and it’s important to undergo a medical examination after your accident if you believe you’ve been injured.

Common medical expenses that may arise from a car accident include:

  • Physical therapy
  • Fees for transport, such as an ambulance
  • Health care advice or consultation
  • Medical devices needed for recovery
  • Pain and suffering
  • Use of in-home services
