Motorcycle Accidents
Have you been injured in a motorcycle accident? Injuries sustained in a motorcycle accident are often the most catastrophic. Victims of a motorcycle accident often times are facing debilitating injuries that will permanently affect one’s ability to perform activities of daily living and ability to work indefinitely into the future. Therefore, if you have suffered an injury because of a motorcycle accident that was not your fault, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to protect both your vocational and avocational future. The DeStefano Law Group focuses a substantial part of its practice on helping people obtain the full and fair compensation they are justly entitled to after a motorcycle accident.

Truck Accidents
If you or a loved one has been injured in a truck accident, The DeStefano Law Group may be able to help you file a lawsuit to recover compensation for your injuries, damages, and losses. Filing a claim against the liable party in a truck accident can be complicated. We have the experience needed to navigate these types of claims. These claims are usually filed against a trucking company which owns the vehicle. The driver is a subordinate defendant. Injuries sustained in truck accidents can be severe, including head trauma, spinal cord damage, disfigurement, burns, broken bones, lacerations, paralysis, and even death. Usually, the theory behind a trucking accident is negligence. Some of the common forms of negligent truck conduct include lack of truck driving experience, overloaded and improperly stocked trucks, operating over sized trucks on normal roadways, driving for too long without taking a break, as well as failure to obey basic traffic laws. To prevail in a negligence lawsuit against a truck driver and the trucking company, the same elements of a negligence claim must be proven. In other words, the injured party will have to prove that the truck driver had a duty of care to other vehicles on the road and that the driver breached their duty to act or failure to act. In some instances the owner of the trucking company, the owner of the truck, the employer of the driver, and their respective insurance companies may all be liable for the injuries, damages, and losses sustained by a truck accident victim. Compensation for injuries, damages, and losses resulting from a truck accident can be separated into two major categories; economic and non-economic.
