How does a Motor-Vehicle Accident Differ from a Car Crash?
To put it simply, a car accident is one of a variety of different types of motor vehicle accidents that our attorneys have experience in handling. Unfortunately, people are injured through the negligence and neglectful conduct of others driving all types of vehicles, including but not limited to the following:
- automobile accidents
- tractor-trailer accidents
- motorcycle accidents
- boating accidents
- ATV accidents
- bus accidents
- emergency vehicle accidents
- coal truck accidents
- construction equipment/vehicles accidents
- delivery truck accidents
- freight truck accidents (box trucks, flat-bed trucks, cargo trucks)
- box truck accidents
Accidents don’t just happen, they happen because of human error, mistakes caused by a failure to follow rules of the road. The rules of the road are familiar to everyone who drives a car and are thus fairly simple to apply and understand the nature of the fault in a simple two car accident (where two cars are involved or multiple car collisions); however, in trucking accidents, boating crashes, motorcycle accidents, freight- or cargo-truck accidents, or where a pedestrian is hit by a vehicle, the rules that apply and the negligence of the other party may not be as clear, as special rules and regulations apply to their driving, handling and maintaining of these types of vehicles or in these situations. Our WV motor-vehicle accident attorneys at Adams Legal Group, PLLC are experienced at handling all types of vehicle accident claims and can quickly cut to the chase in determining the fault and mistakes of the driver or other responsible parties (vehicle owner, contractor, maintenance person/shop) and hold them and their insurance companies accountable for your injuries..

Our Morgantown, WV accident lawyers have handled hundreds of personal injury and vehicle accident cases and as a result are intimately familiar with the applicable laws, including the “rules of the road” for regular drivers and additional industry standards for truck drivers, coal truck drivers and haulers, as well as the insurance company procedures in handling these claims. After all, I (attorney Bill Adams) worked for the defense and was paid by the insurance companies to defend their at-fault drivers for the first 10 years of my law practice. Thus, we know how they operate to minimize how much they have to pay you to compensate you for your losses. We will take cases on a contingent fee, to get you the money that you deserve—meaning that if you don’t recover, we do not get paid AND the more you recover, the more we also get paid.

If you or a loved one are an athlete and were unfortunate enough to have been injured or have lost your loved one as a result of a driver not being alert and mindful of an athlete’s right to share the road, we can help you bring an action to recover for the injuries and losses suffered. As an active athlete – runner, cyclist and triathlete – attorney William Adams is very well attuned to the “rules of the road” for athletes and has a keen appreciation for the hazards we face as athletes when we venture out onto the public roadways for our workouts.
