Personal Injury

At Adams, Jordan & Herrington, P.C., it is our approach to the client that sets us apart. Our priority is the protection of our client. With that in mind, we prepare each case as if we are going to trial. Through this process of due diligence, we explore every detail and recover the maximum settlements available to our clients.
When your firm has an outstanding record of awards through trial spanning 25 years, you approach cases differently. Difficult, complex cases are not a deterrent. Virgil Adam’s history as a public prosecutor makes him well suited for handling difficult cases involving trucking companies and large insurance agencies. We are not a practice interested in volume or quick settlements. We prepare each case as if it will go to trial. This process is what translates into a well defended and monetarily compensated client.

We handle each case with care, especially those involving the wrongful death of a loved one. Over 37,000 people die in road crashes in the United States each year (Association for Safe International Road Travel).

During such a trying time, no one should have to deal with battling an insurance company over medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses. We promise to do our due diligence for your family to ensure your financial and emotional stability.

Personal Injury

The field of personal injury is an overarching umbrella term that is applied to an array of injuries resulting from accidents that occurred because another individual, company or government was acting negligently. This broad definition can apply to everything from a commercial truck driver who dozed off and caused an accident, a catastrophic, debilitating on the job injury resulting from a crane accident, boiler explosion or a similar event,, a negligent driver who hits a motorcyclist and virtually any other scenario that occurs due to negligence. A personal injury doesn’t necessarily have to take a bodily form, and cases have successfully been brought due to emotional and mental injuries.

In all of these situations, the culpable party is likely insured, whether it’s a company or an individual. As profit-based institutions, it is in the insurance company’s best interest to pay your family as little as possible for your pain and suffering. A personal injury attorney will fight to win you the compensation you deserve, not the small settlement figure the insurance company is initially willing to offer.

Injury Cases

As an experienced personal injury law firm, we handle a vast array of cases such as auto accidents, truck accidents, motorcycle accidents, airline accidents, as well as many more.

Common Causes of Auto Accidents

Millions of people drive in this country every day. Since driving a car is considered a normal daily activity, there is a tendency for people to become complacent or a bit careless while operating a car. As soon as drivers become less attentive or driving habits become riskier, there is a greater chance that accidents will occur. Some of the most reported reasons for auto accidents are:
  • Using cell phones 
  • Driver fatigue 
  • Applying makeup 
  • Eating 
  • Drunk driving or drug use 
  • Speeding 
  • Aggressive driving (i.e. cut other cars off, weaving in and out of lanes) 

Common Causes of Truck Accidents

Due to the commercial nature of truck driving, there are more stringent federal regulations in place to monitor the actions of drivers and truck companies. Causes of truck accidents tend to stem from a truck driver or trucking company’s lack of compliance with federal regulations. There are a number of factors that can contribute to truck accidents, such as:
  • Driver fatigue 
  • Driving drunk or under the influence of other substances
  • Cargo not properly secured on the truck 
  • Poor truck maintenance 
  • Aggressive driving 
  • Tire blowouts
  • Lack of driving training 
  • Driving more than the mandatory hour limits set by federal regulations 

Common Causes of Motorcycle Accidents

Motorcyclists are particularly prone to suffering injuries in accidents because they don’t have any barriers or a vehicle to protect their bodies when an accident happens. Reasons for motorcycle accidents are:
  • Exceeding the speed limit 
  • Limited visibility 
  • Defective motorcycle parts 
  • Adverse weather conditions 
  • Loss of control of the motorcycle
