Car Accidents

Sometimes, we are lucky and an auto accident is no more than a nuisance. Unfortunately, however, serious car accidents often disrupt and devastate people's lives. When someone is killed or severely injured in a crash, the victim and family deserve to be compensated for the total harm suffered, including the costs of past, present and future injuries. While the majority of car accident lawsuits in Tucson settle, we prepare every case as if it were going to trial, which often helps us obtain optimal results for our clients.

The Law Office of William D. Nelson, P.C. has successfully handled numerous personal injury and wrongful death claims arising out of car accidents in Tucson. With more than 30 years of experience, we understand that auto accident cases are often more complex than meets the eye, potentially involving negligent drivers, insurance companies, commercial businesses, vehicle manufacturers, and even government municipalities. Our Tucson auto accident lawyers are adept at exploring all potential avenues to compensation for our clients.

There are many reasons for a car accident:

  • Distracted driving, including cell phone use, texting, eating or talking to others in the vehicle
  • Drunk driving and driving under the influence of drugs
  • Reckless driving, including speeding, changing lanes too quickly and tailgating
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Improper turns
  • Wrong-way driving
  • Automobile design defects
  • Poorly maintained roadways, including potholes, uneven pavement and work paint
  • Lack of proper signage and hazard warnings along roadways

Collisions, crashes and rollovers can all be caused by negligent, reckless and illegal driving behaviors. In addition to handling claims involving passenger cars, our Tucson auto accident attorneys represent victims of truck accidents (which often involve third parties), motorcycle accidents, bicycle accidents and pedestrian accidents.

At the Law Office of William D. Nelson, P.C., we are familiar with the various types of serious injuries that may arise out of Tucson car accidents, including head injuries, spinal cord and back injuries, soft tissue damage, broken bones and injuries to the face and eyes. We further understand that some injuries do not manifest until well after an accident has occurred. This knowledge and awareness helps us to obtain full compensation to meet the current and future needs of our clients.
