Going the Extra Mile Leads to Best Personal Injury Case Outcome

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on May 18, 2022

Post Image

Sometimes it just takes “rolling up our shirt sleeves” to uncover favorable evidence for our clientswhen they have been involved in a personal injury incident. For example, our office recently settled a case for a client referred to as “C.R.” who was involved in a motor vehicle accident, when another driver ran a red light and broadsided her vehicle. The reason this accident occurred, according to the opposing driver, was that our client C.R. ran the red light. However, there were no independent witnesses in this situation, and the police were unable to determine which driver was at fault.

The adverse insurance carrier denied C.R.’s property damage claim, arguing that the accident was C.R.’s fault. Following the accident, our client was left without the use of her car and an outstanding loan on the vehicle. In addition to her property damage, C.R. sustained injuries that required emergency medical treatment, follow-up, and ongoing medical attention.

What Drivers Should Learn From the Tiger Wood’s Accident

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on March 11, 2021

With more people working from home there are fewer vehicles on the freeways and city streets.  However, due to the lack of normal traffic, we are seeing higher speeds resulting in crashes with more property damage and more severe injuries. As always, when traveling on public roads, obey all posted speed limits and be watchful of those who are speeding. NEVER try to minimize the speed of cars around you by intentionally placing your vehicle in their way. Just move away and allow them to go their way. You will be safer in the long run.

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on January 31, 2021

You may be stunned by the sheer violence of the collision and even more disoriented if you suffered a serious injury, such as a head wound. While you may be able to explain your specific actions leading up to the collision, you likely will not be able to break down every step that contributed to the accident.

Proving Driver Fatigue Caused Your Injuries

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on September 30, 2020

Post Image

We all understand the dangers of driving under the influence, but drowsy driving should also be a major concern when getting on the road. A lack of sleep can mimic the effects of alcohol or drugs, making it difficult for you to stay awake, pay attention to the road, respond to other vehicles or traffic lights, and stay in your lane. When someone drives fatigued and causes a car accident, an experienced attorney can hold them liable for any injuries they caused in a claim for damages.

Crash Tests Explained

By Allen Flatt Ballidis & Leslie on September 8, 2020

Post Image

Before a vehicle can get on the road, it must go through thorough testing and inspections to ensure all safety features are fully functional and the risk of serious injuries is low. Many people are aware of crash tests, but vehicles are also tested in environments such as Germany’s Nurburgring test track, public roads, different weather patterns, and varied road conditions. These thorough reviews can not only identify the unique qualities that make a vehicle special, but also under what conditions it can become involved in an accident. In most cases, this may lead a manufacturer to issue a redesign or to correct a faulty part. However, there are situations where cars fail and still end up on our roadways.
