Drive Defensively Around Semi-Trucks

Trucking accidents are usually much more severe than any other auto accidents. This could be due to the fact that semi-trucks weigh about 80,000 pounds when fully loaded. Since other cars usually weigh significantly less, their damage is much more severe. William Rawlings & Associates has handled hundreds of injury cases involving semi-trucks.  We know the laws that govern these truck drivers and their responsibility while on the road.  Put our experienced Semi-truck accident lawyers on your side.

Making the Record:  Car, Truck and Motorcycle Accidents.


In a previous post we began the discussion of how to ensure your medical record helps you following a catastrophic injury.  When presented to a judge or jury, your medical record should “tell the story” of how your injury was inflicted and what steps you undertook to obtain restoration and healing.

Catastrophic Injuries : Auto, Truck or Motorcycle Accident


Following a catastrophic personal injury, it is so important that your medical record tells the story of your injury accident.  Your catastrophic injury medical record begins to be created the moment you first seek treatment following an accident. (If you have a preexisting condition that is exacerbated by the injury accident, then your medical record should encompass all treatment you received for this preexisting condition, as well.) One of the tasks of the injury victim is to build as thorough of a record as possible. The more complete the medical record, the greater the likelihood is that the victim will be able to recover compensation.

Prevent Halloween Pedestrian Injuries


Children are gearing up for trick-or-treating and Halloween fun, but there are some things parents should consider to keep children safe.  A common misconception is that the biggest danger is the candy.  It has been decades since there has been an incident like that. And though parents should not throw caution to the wind, the biggest concern is vehicles.  Think about what happens on Halloween evening. Every adult you know is doing the exact same thing at the exact same time — heading home from work. And every child you know is also doing the exact same thing at the exact same time — running around outside, back and forth across the streets, in dark costumes acting excitedly, crazy.

When a negligent driver injures a pedestrian or the occupant of a vehicle, he can often be held liable for injuries and damages. When the negligent driver is found guilty of hit and run, i.e. leaving the scene of the accident, he or she may be charged with a crime and be held responsible for punitive damages (which are “extra” damages to punish the driver for having left the scene)

If you have been injured by a drunk driver who left the scene, contact the Salt Lake City DUI hit and run lawyers at William Rawlings & Associates.  Our Firm attorneys have extensive experience and have hundreds of vehicle accident cases, including cases involving drunk driving, wrongful death and hit and run.

Motorcycle Accident Lawyers:  Startling Number of Crashes



pic mc crash

Every year, millions of motorcycle drivers ride every day without being involved in an accident. While you can ride your whole life and never be in a motorcycle crash, the reality is that operating a motorcycle is much more dangerous when compared to driving a car.  Despite some claims by motorcycle enthusiasts that a skilled and properly trained motorcycle operator is less likely to be injured than the average car driver, driving or riding on a motorcycle is an inherently dangerous activity.

When attorneys representing defendants in personal injury cases argue that plaintiffs have obtained too much treatment, they refuse to fully compensate the plaintiff for the costs of that medical treatment. Quite as often, defense attorneys also argue that a plaintiff’s lack of treatment shows that they were not really injured, and refuse to fully compensate the plaintiff for the pain and suffering that was endured. So what is a prospective plaintiff to do?
