Car Accidents

Injuries caused by automobile accidents, motorcycle accidents, pedestrians struck by motor vehicles, bicycle accidents and tractor trailer truck-motor vehicle collisions are by far, the most common type of personal injury case in our court system. Every ten seconds, someone in the United States is injured in a car accident. At Wocl Leydon, we are very experienced in handling these types of cases.

Over the years, Wocl Leydon has represented thousands of injured automobile operators, automobile passengers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians. Many of these cases involve:

  • Drunk Drivers
  • Driving through Stop Signs and Stop Lights
  • Drivers Failing to Keep a Proper Lookout
  • Racing Drivers
  • Left Hand Turn Collisions
  • Intersection Collisions
  • Drivers Talking on Cell Phone
  • Sleeping Drivers
  • Improper Lane Changes
  • Head on Collisions
  • Inattentive Drivers
  • Speeding Motor Vehicle
  • Rear end Motor Vehicle Accidents
  • Reckless Drivers
  • Vehicles with Improperly Stored Cargos
  • Tailgating Motor Vehicles
  • Operators Disregarding Weather and Traffic Conditions
  • Motor Vehicles Operated with Unsafe Equipment such as Improper Brakes, Unsafe Tires, Improper Maintenance of Vehicles

Several studies show that injured individuals who are represented by an attorney receive over twice the compensation than individuals without a lawyer receive. It is important that you contact a lawyer as soon as possible so that crucial evidence can be preserved and witnesses can be interviewed while the details are still fresh in their minds. Evidence like skid marks fade over time and seasonal weather conditions may change the landscape of the area where the accident occurred. In serious accidents, experts are used to help recreate the accident scene. By contacting an attorney immediately, you increase your likelihood of receiving the full compensation to which you are entitled.

  • Hiring a Private Investigator to Obtain Recorded Witness Statements
  • Making Measurements at the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Accident

  • Ordering Police Reports and Records
