Automobile Accidents and Other Personal Injury Claims
The lawyers at Sasson, Turnbull, Ryan & Hoose are dedicated to vigorously protecting the rights and interests of those who have been hurt due to the negligence or wrongful conduct of others. With decades of litigation experience, we are prepared to handle a broad variety of cases and fight aggressively for the compensation that our clients deserve.
Negligence is the failure to exercise the care that a reasonably careful person would have exercised in the same or similar situation. It generally means that a person was careless or did something that they should not have done. Examples include motorists who drive through stop signs, then strike other vehicles or motorists who cause a rear end collision as a result of tail-gaiting.
Motor vehicle accidents come in many forms. We can handle them all:
- Car accidents
- Truck accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Auto/pedestrian accidents
- Auto/bicycle accidents
Victims in a motor vehicle accident may include the car’s driver, passengers, by-standers, and even the spouse of an injured person. Every motor vehicle accident is different. Every set of damages, injuries, and losses is unique. While most motor vehicle accidents are caused by a momentary lack of attention or care – such as talking or texting on a cell phone – some are the product of inherently dangerous conduct like drunk driving.
Motor vehicle accidents cause harms ranging from soft tissue injuries and whiplash to broken bones, brain trauma, disfigurement, and death. If you are an accident victim, you may be able to recover money from the negligent driver, the owner of the car, and even the driver’s employer. Compensation may be warranted to pay for the damage to your car, your current and future medical bills, lost wages, and non-economic damages like pain and suffering and emotional distress.
Issues related to insurance often pose challenges in motor vehicle accident cases. Insurance companies are often very reluctant to make victims whole by providing fair compensation. Even more challenging are situations with uninsured and underinsured motorists. Our attorneys know how to overcome these hurdles to get you a timely recovery that covers your losses.

Your case will be personally handled by an experienced attorney, not a paralegal. In the event your case requires litigation, our attorneys have many years of experience trying cases in both state and federal courts.
In personal injury cases, we provide legal representation on a contingency fee basis. This means that no attorney fees are owed unless and until our law firm successfully resolves your case.
