Legal Rights for Auto Accident Victims and Their Families

Car accident lawyer Jeff Gibson represents victims of car, truck, and bus accidents and their families. He helps them get the financial compensation they need and rightfully deserve. Jeff has shared some legal options available to those injured and the families of those killed in auto accidents.

Auto accidents are tragedies that often cause devastating injuries, including death. In the aftermath of an auto accident, victims and their families often struggle with grief and face financial difficulties, such as medical bills and lost income. Victims and their families may often find financial relief by filing a personal injury or a wrongful death lawsuit in the event of a hit-and-run accident.

Depending on the circumstances of the accident, multiple parties can be held liable in an auto accident lawsuit. The driver could be held liable if the accident was their fault and if they failed to stop. Additionally, the driver's employer could be held responsible if their negligence played a role in the crash, such as hiring a driver with a history of driving citations.

If you or a loved one has been injured or even killed in an auto crash, you can learn more about your legal options by calling for a free consultation with one of our experienced car accident lawyers.
