Getting Car Accident Victims the Compensation They Deserve
Car accident victims need attorneys. Until they retain one, the insurance companies know that they are dealing with someone who does not know the laws as well as they do. Without a lawyer, a person who is stressed from dealing with the financial, physical, and emotional consequences of an injury is more likely to accept an unfair settlement. At Sheldon J. Schlesinger, P.A., our personal injury attorneys have assisted many people who suffered injuries in car accidents. If you or someone you love has been hurt in a car crash, contact us for a free initial consultation with an experienced car accident lawyer.

Drunk Driving Car Accidents
Tragically, many car and truck accidents are preventable. This is especially true if the driver was intoxicated. Our lawyers are familiar with the issues surrounding drunk driving cases. We have read many toxicology reports and conducted many investigations. We also handle cases that involve bars and house parties who serve people who are clearly intoxicated.

Semi Tractor Trailer Accidents
Truck accidents cause a lot of damage. Our lawyers handle all types of truck accident cases, including those that involve
* Detaching trailers
* Product liability
* Drunk or fatigued drivers
* Negligent hiring practices

Truck companies are professionals, so they are adept at defending themselves. Fortunately, with over fifty years of experience, we have the knowledge and skill necessary to prevail against them.

Motorcycle Accidents
Every cyclist knows that if he gets into an accident, the injuries are likely to be serious or fatal. Many of the injuries that we have seen include
* Traumatic brain injury
* Spinal cord injury
* Back injury
* Head and neck injury
* Broken bones
* Burns

Juries are sometimes biased against the cyclist. However, we are persuasive. With our careful investigation and reconstruction, we can show both jury and opposing counsel what really happened that day.
