How We Help Our Clients
Getting compensation after a car accident can be overwhelming. Not only are you in pain and facing high medical bills, but insurers will pressure you to accept the lowest possible settlement. You deserve a committed and knowledgeable legal advocate. If you’ve been injured in a car accident while driving in St. Joseph, Benton Harbor, Fair Plain, or anywhere in Berrien County, we will aggressively pursue the compensation your case deserves.
Car accidents happen every day in Michigan. We never expect them to happen to us, but statistics indicate the average driver will be involved in three collisions during their lifetime. While most of these accidents are minor in nature, many of them result in serious injuries or wrongful death.
According to a traffic safety report compiled by the Michigan State Police, there were 1,488 car accidents reported in St. Joseph County in 2020. Sixteen involved fatalities, while 235 left drivers and/or passengers seriously injured. If an impaired, distracted, or reckless driver leaves you with major injuries, let a St. Joseph County car wreck lawyer at Conybeare Law Office fight for you.
In the modern economy, the commercial trucking industry has a significant impact on our daily lives. While most trucking companies maintain their vehicles and supervise their drivers according to sound business safety practices, some corporations take shortcuts that result in reckless driving practices, inadequate training, and subpar maintenance, increasing the chances of accidents.
In 2020, there were 4,064 accidents involving semi-trucks in Michigan, 36 of which were fatal. Another 815 resulted in injury. Since commercial trucks are huge and heavy vehicles, they inflict a lot of damage during a crash. At Conybeare Law Office, we know how to make large trucking companies accountable for their negligence, and will strive to do so in your case.
Although organizations like Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) have long been warning against the dangers of impaired driving, DUI injuries still occur. According to the 2020 Michigan Drunk Driving audit, 17 people were killed by drunk drivers in the area of St. Joseph that year. Another 315 were injured.
Having represented many drunk driving accident victims across Michigan, we understand what you are going through. The skilled trial lawyers at our firm are here to assist you and provide you with resources while we hold drunk drivers accountable for their actions. By fighting for your legal rights, we can let you focus on healing, recovering, and moving forward.
There are inherent risks associated with motorcycle riding. In comparison to other vehicles, motorcycles are more vulnerable, less visible, and less stable. However, this does not excuse negligent driving by other motorists. Too often, motorists’ negligent actions endanger motorcycle riders. In 2020, riders were involved in 3,092 accidents across Michigan, with 160 being killed and another 2,285 injured.
Our St. Joseph personal injury attorneys have a proven track record of representing clients who have been injured in serious motorcycle accidents. Moreover, we combine aggressive trial strategies with a thorough knowledge of the applicable laws to achieve favorable results.
Bicycling to work is a great way to get exercise and save money on gas. Unfortunately, however, Michigan drivers don’t always watch for cyclists or adjust their driving practices to make the road safe for everyone.
Approximately 75% of all serious and fatal bicycle accidents result in traumatic head injuries. Other common bicycle accident injuries include broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and head and neck injuries. At Conybeare Law Office, our goal is to obtain as much compensation as possible so our client can focus on his or her recovery.
St. Joseph has many walkable areas. Unfortunately, too many drivers fail to notice pedestrians at crosswalks or fail to respect their right of way when they have it. In some cases, the results can be tragic: accidents involving pedestrians often result in traumatic brain injuries, paralysis, and other devastating injuries.
Conybeare Law Office represents injury victims and their families, including pedestrians who are hurt in car accidents caused by negligent drivers. Over the course of our St. Joseph law firm’s history, we have secured high verdicts and settlements on behalf of clients throughout Michigan.
