Transportation Litigation

Negligence on the part of your fellow drivers can cause you or someone you love a variety of injuries, from minor soft tissue, to broken bones, to a catastrophic injury or even wrongful death. The consequences of an auto accident can last a lifetime, leaving some victims unable to work in the same capacity and some unable to work at all.

When this happens, Benjamin & Shapiro, Ltd. can help. We have more than 40 years of experience helping families recover compensation for both physical and mental trauma. If you contact our attorneys, we can meet with you free of charge, and if we take your case, we will charge no attorneys’ fees unless and until you receive compensation.

Our auto accident practice involves actions against negligent drivers and companies responsible for:

  • Car crashes and other Accidents
  • Truck collisions
  • Motorcycle accidents
  • Pedestrian accidents
  • Boating accidents
  • Motor vehicle defects

Negligence is essentially the failure to act with the care expected of a reasonable person. For people operating motor vehicles, this definition encompasses a wide array of situations, from a person distracted by a cell phone, to speeding and reckless driving, to driving under the influence.

Mental stress and anguish are often equally incapacitating and deserve compensation.

We are experienced in working with insurance companies throughout the United States. Our auto accident lawyers should be the first people you talk to, before even contacting the other party’s insurance company.
