Motor vehicle accidents, including car accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents, are the most common type of personal injury claim. In order to recover compensation in a Peoria auto accident lawsuit, the injured party must provide that the defendant was negligent and that defendant’s negligence was the proximate cause of both the accident and the plaintiff’s injuries.
Because the legal and factual issues involved with personal injury lawsuits, such as those involving car accidents, can be complex, a skilled Peoria car accident attorney like those at Ankin Law Offices, LLC can help guide you through the entire process.
Though aviation accidents are not as common as motor vehicle accidents, the results are usually far more severe. Airplane and helicopter accidents produce catastrophic injuries and/or fatalities. Most aircraft accidents are caused by pilot error, equipment malfunction, design flaws, air traffic controller negligence, improper maintenance, violation of FAA regulations, and poor weather. At Ankin Law Offices, LLC, our attorneys handle cases involving commercial airline and non-commercial aircraft accidents, including helicopter accidents and private plane accidents.
