When you or someone you love is injured in a trucking accident, it can have a devastating impact on your way of life, both physically and emotionally as well as financially. Trucks (eighteen-wheelers, tractor-trailers, semis, etc) are far larger than the average personal car, and they can carry loads of more than 80,000 pounds. Because of this, the physical consequences of a trucking wreck can have long-lasting effects, making it difficult to work or pay bills.
After seeking medical care, a call to our experienced attorneys should be the first step you make towards recovery.

Wrongful Death Accidents
The pain of losing a loved one is difficult enough, but it can be made even more difficult when their death was due to an avoidable accident. In addition to the emotional stress of the loss, expenses can mount quickly. In most states, a “wrongful death” is defined as a death caused by the negligence or misconduct of an individual or company. These events can arise from a number of situations including but not limited to medical malpractice, car and trucking accidents, occupational exposure to hazardous conditions or substances, and death during a supervised activity.
Premises Liability Cases
Certain risks are foreseeable: water on slick floors, items that have not been properly secured, uneven floors, object protruding into busy passageways, etc. When those risks are not addressed in a timely manner, they can result in injuries to innocent bystanders. If you’ve been injured in one of these types of accidents, it’s important to get an experienced attorney on your side as soon as possible.

When pedestrians are involved in motor vehicle accidents, the results can be catastrophic. With the rise of smartphones and their link to distracted driving, these events are becoming more commonplace in popular pedestrian areas. Distracted driving is often to blame, but there are other causes, such as drivers failing to yield at crosswalks or not checking for clearance before making a right-hand turn. Unfortunately, these accidents happen more frequently than they should.
Riding a motorcycle is exhilarating, but it comes with its own risks. In fact, motorcyclists are nearly 29 times more likely to die in a wreck than a passenger car occupant, making it the most deadly form of transportation in the United States. Most of those injuries are not caused by motorcyclist error but by the recklessness of other drivers on the road.
We may not be able to protect you from their reckless behavior, but we can help you with your recovery efforts and lead the fight to be made whole again.
On average, there are nearly 60,000 bus accidents in the U.S. each year. Luckily, most of these collisions result in property damage only. However, because buses typically carry more than the average passenger car, wrecks involving buses can injure far more people at a time. Another contributing factor is the lack of on-board safety measures, such as seatbelts. For these reasons, even though bus accidents are less frequent than other forms of travel, they still cause thousands of injuries each year.

Traumatic Brain Injuries
Car accidents are the second-leading cause of traumatic brain injuries, making up over 17% of all diagnoses each year, right after falls. Brain injuries are usually caused by a hard blow or jolt to your head or body, which is very common in car and trucking accidents. Signs that your brain has been impacted include blurry vision, dizziness, or loss of consciousness.
If you've had any of these symptoms after an accident, tell your medical provider and call our team for a free consultation. We want to be part of your recovery efforts!
Nursing Home & Elder Care Abuse
Caring for loved ones in their golden years can be a full-time job, which is oftentimes why families seek professional help from assisted living communities, nursing homes, or at-home healthcare providers. We put a tremendous amount of trust in these agencies to care for our loved ones with the dignity, respect, and attention they deserve. When that trust is broken by negligent or reckless individuals, the emotional toll can be as great as the financial or physical consequences.
Our first priority will be the health and wellness of your loved one. Then we will help you seek renumeration from whatever damages you have incurred. It is a delicate, nuanced situation, and we’ll be glad to help you through it all. Give us a call today for a free consultation and overview of our process.
Spinal Cord Injuries
Anyone who experiences significant trauma to his or her head or neck needs to seek an immediate medical evaluation for the possibility of a spinal injury. That's because serious spinal injuries aren't always immediately obvious. The Mayo Clinic's website goes as far as to suggest that it's safest to assume that trauma victims have a spinal injury until proven otherwise.
If you've been injured and are suffering from stiffness and soreness, call your medical team today. Then call our office to discuss how we can help you seek a financial recovery for the expenses you've incurred from the accident.
For years now, the most desirable communities have been those with high “walkability” scores where residents can walk, jog, or bike to and from their daily activities. It’s a great way to live, but without a car around you, you’re more exposed to the elements and to negligent or distracted drivers on the road. Thus, bicycle accidents can cause extensive – and expensive – injuries.
Fortunately, our attorneys at the Massey Law Group can help you with these types of accidents. Give us a call today for your free consultation.
Ride Share Accidents
When you get into a ride-sharing vehicle, such as an Uber, Lyft, or taxi, you expect the driver to safely deliver you to your next destination. But like with any other passenger ride you take, accidents can happen, whether the fault of your driver or another reckless individual on the road.
If you’ve been injured while riding in one of these vehicles, you may be entitled to a financial recovery for the medical expenses you’ve incurred. Call today for a free consultation, and let us get you on the path to a full recovery.
