Let a Buffalo car accident lawyer stand up and advocate for you

Buffalo car accident attorney James Morris isn’t afraid to take your case to trial. Going to court can be a huge commitment of time and effort, but when an insurance company knows that a lawyer doesn't want to go to court, that gives the insurance company leverage in settlement negotiations. That's why a lot of insurance adjusters make lowball settlement offers to personal injury victims that don't even come close to covering all their accident-related expenses. They know that most lawyers will simply accept whatever initial offer they receive.

We take a different approach at the Law Offices of James Morris. We're willing to go the distance and fight for the compensation you rightfully deserve. We're not afraid to take the insurance company to court and argue your case before a judge and jury.

Our Buffalo, NY law firm handles cases involving:

Car Accidents in Buffalo

As a city with a quarter million residents and a major regional travel hub, the Queen City certainly sees its share of car accidents. You may have been rear-ended at a busy intersection or hit by a drunk driver on an outlying road. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you might be unable to work and left to pay thousands of dollars in medical bills. You may have even lost a loved one.

Personal injury lawsuits involving car accidents may seem straightforward, but they often aren’t. The insurance company may argue that you caused the crash or that your injuries are due to a pre-existing condition. Don’t stand for that. Let an experienced Buffalo car accident lawyer protect your rights and help you help you get full compensation.

Truck Accidents in Buffalo

Because of its location near I-90 and importance as the second-largest city in New York, plenty of large commercial trucks pass through the Buffalo area every day. A fully loaded 18-wheeler can weigh up to 80,000 pounds, compared to about 3,000 pounds for the average passenger car. That means truck accidents involving 18-wheelers, semi-trucks, tractor-trailers and other commercial vehicles are very likely to inflict devastating injuries – or maybe even kill somebody.

Perhaps the negligent trucker who hurt you was texting and driving, speeding, or driving drunk. The 18-wheeler may have been overloaded or poorly maintained. Any of those factors could lead to a settlement or judgment in your favor – but trucking companies will do everything in their power to pay out as little as possible. That’s why you need a dedicated Buffalo truck accident lawyer with the experience and determination to stand up for you.

Motorcycle Accidents in Buffalo

Many of Buffalo's 250,000 residents and thousands of visitors enjoy taking to the open road on motorcycles. In the warm summer months, riding a motorcycle can be a great way to get around. Unfortunately, without an enclosed passenger vehicle to protect them, motorcyclists are at a greater risk of being severely injured in the event of a crash.

After a serious motorcycle accident, you may think you're out of options. That's because insurance companies routinely try to blame motorcyclists for their injuries. We know the truth. We know that a lot of accidents are due to the negligence other drivers. Let an experienced Buffalo motorcycle accident attorney advocate for you so you can get full compensation for your injuries.
