Auto accidents happen frequently and can lead to life-altering injuries and, in some cases, death. According to Safer America, “Car accidents are the leading cause of death among young adults ages 15-29 and the ninth leading cause of death for all people.”
An automobile collision can greatly affect an individual and their family. For this reason, we believe our community should stay informed on recent accidents that have occurred in order to encourage drivers to use additional caution on the Amarillo roads. Our team of attorneys has created a vehicle accident report covering some of the accidents that happened in our community in the month of March.
At Tormey & McConnell, we help victims who suffered injuries as a result of a negligent motorist. If you or a loved one suffered injuries after an automobile accident that was not your fault, compensation may be available. Vehicle accident claims are often complex and involve numerous details that must be evaluated by an experienced and knowledgeable lawyer. Our Amarillo car accident attorneys can assess the factors of your case and inform you of your legal options. If you qualify for compensation, we will gather the information required to build a strong claim and help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Let Tormey & McConnell Go to Bat for You!
The Amarillo car accident attorneys at Tormey & McConnell know that the legal system is not straightforward. For this reason, it’s imperative to seek the legal advice of an experienced lawyer. If you or a loved one was involved in a car accident and sustained injuries as a result of a careless driver, we can help.
The ultimate goal of most insurance companies is to make money. With this in mind, many insurance adjusters attempt to offer injured victims a low settlement, so they can pay out as little as possible. Our aggressive and dedicated team will fight for every penny you are rightfully owed. Compensation is intended to help cover various expenses related to an accident, such as medical bills, property damage, and other costs.
If you experienced the wrongful death of a loved one, you may also be compensated for your loss. However, it’s important that you speak with a lawyer immediately after the accident. Every case is unique, and results will depend on the individual circumstances of your case.
