Whenever a driver enters the roadway, they are placing their own safety, and the safety of their passengers, in the hands of other drivers who may be distracted, impaired or driving recklessly. Auto accidents can range anywhere from a simple fender bender, with no serious injuries, to accidents that result in the death of one of the persons involved. Victims or the family of victims involved in auto accidents may be unaware of what legal remedies they are entitled to. The expert auto accident lawyers at the Law Offices of Gilbert R.
