Most trucking accidents occur at high speeds on the highway. But even low-speed trucking accidents can have catastrophic results. A fully loaded truck can weigh 80,000 pounds while the average car weighs 3,000 pounds. Based on sheer size and weight, injuries are likely to be severe when an accident occurs. In presenting your claim, our skilled attorneys assess the physical, emotional, and financial losses that resulted from the accident to ensure that you are fairly compensated.
Trains carry so much cargo and travel at such high speeds that the end-result of any accident—no matter how minor—can be catastrophic injury or even death.

According to the United States Coast Guard, approximately 70% of all reported fatalities in 2006 occurred on boats where the operator had not received boating safety instruction. Your accident injuries—if they are the fault of another’s negligence or faulty equipment—may entitle you to compensation. The attorneys of Anastopoulo & Clore represent clients who were seriously injured while boating, fishing, or sailing on a personal watercraft.
Flying is still one of the safest ways to travel. But when mistakes happen, passenger’s lives are lost. Those who survive often endure severe injuries. The laws that apply to aviation are complex. Privately owned airplanes involved in accidents are subject to laws similar to that of an auto accident. If the cause of the accident can be traced to equipment or system malfunction, the manufacturer could also be liable. However, if the injury occurred in a commercial airliner, an entirely different set of rules apply. Our attorneys can guide you through the complex process of filing your claim and proving your case.
