Did you know that motorcycle riders are three times more likely to be injured in an accident, and fourteen times more likely to be killed? These are serious statistics, and we at Sevey, Donahue & Talcott understand the unique needs of motorcyclists and strive to fight the stereotypes that surround them.

The sheer size and weight of pickup trucks and commercial vehicles mean that when they’re involved in an accident, there’s a greatly increased chance of death or severe – even catastrophic – injuries. These injuries are bound to be life-altering and may end up requiring a lifetime of specialized care. Most truck accidents are caused by tiredness, fatigue, or inadequate maintenance of the truck itself. At Sevey, Donahue & Talcott, we’ll use our vast knowledge in truck accident litigation to boldly fight for a settlement that will take care of you and your family while you recover.
One of the most painful life experiences we can suffer is the loss of someone that we love. When that loss occurs because of the senseless negligence of another person, the loss becomes even greater.

This can help create stability in your future, and that of your family.
Our legal team will commiserate with you during this time of immense stress and grief. We will utilize our knowledge of wrongful death law to make certain you are justly compensated for your loved one’s loss of income both now and in the future. We will also seek compensation for loss of companionship, medical bill payments, and any pain and suffering your loved one went through before their death.
