Car accidents are a leading cause of death in the U.S.1 More than 90 percent of all car crashes that occur in the U.S. each year are caused by human error.2 This human error can come in many forms, like (but not limited to):
- Driver errors, like distracted driving, drunk driving and reckless driving
- Manufacturer negligence, such as vehicle design flaws or defective automotive equipment
- Other negligence, like failures to maintain safe roadways.
When any form of negligence contributes to a car crash, victims (including families who lost a loved one to a deadly wreck) will likely have legal options for holding the negligent parties accountable.
Truck crashes are among the deadliest traffic wrecks. While the careless or reckless actions of truck drivers can cause these accidents, so too can the negligence of other motorists, trucking companies and other parties.
At Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, P.C., we have extensive experience advocating truck accident victims’ rights in various types of cases, including (but not limited to) claims involving:
- Impaired truck drivers, like fatigued, drunk or distracted truckers
- Rollover accidents
- Jackknife accidents
- Underride truck accidents
- Municipal truck accidents.
Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable travelers on the roads. In fact, whenever traffic crashes involve a motorcycle rider, the rider is nearly 30 times more likely than people in passenger vehicles to be killed.3
Tragically, most motorcycle accidents could be prevented if some party had been more attentive, sober and/or careful. Whenever negligence plays a role in causing a motorcycle accident, we can help victims fight for justice and recovery.
Day to day, the places where you work, shop and go may not be as safe as they seem. This is particularly true when properties are not properly maintained and/or when risky areas of properties are not properly abated.

About 10 percent of nursing home residents will be the target of some form abuse while staying in these facilities.4 While nursing home abuse can involve physical assaults and violence, it can also include emotional and financial abuse.
Regardless of whether this abuse comes at the hands of nursing home staff or others, the perpetrators – and possibly the nursing home facility – can be liable for the harm they have caused.
In the aftermath of a workplace accident or an occupational illness diagnosis, injured workers may be able to pursue:
- A workers’ compensation claim – Although workers will not have to prove fault as part of these claims, they will have to follow specific rules, meet certain deadlines and possibly even see specific doctors (chosen by the employer or its insurance company).
- A personal injury claim – This can be an option when the negligence of someone other than the employer, a co-worker or the injured worker contributed to the work injuries. These other parties can include equipment manufacturers, building owners, contractors and others.
At Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, P.C., our lawyers can help injured workers and their families build and successfully resolve both workers compensation and related personal injury claims.
As some of the most vulnerable travelers on the roadways, pedestrians are often seriously – if not fatally – injured when traffic accidents happen. Also tragic are the facts that:
- Deadly pedestrian accidents in the U.S. have been on the rise since 2016, jumping up about 9 percent5 – Some experts believe distracted driving, coupled with low gas prices putting more drivers on the road, have contributed to this recent surge in pedestrian accidents.
- Preventable motorist negligence is often to blame when serious pedestrian accidents occur – Along with distracted driving, driving while impaired and failing to comply with traffic laws are common examples of motorist negligence that often plays a role in causing pedestrian accidents.
When pedestrians are hurt in any type of traffic collision, the attorneys at Maggiano, DiGirolamo & Lizzi, P.C. can help them hold the negligent parties accountable and fight for the compensation they deserve.
