Maine Vehicle Accident Lawyers

Maine residents and businesses use all types of vehicles for work, family and play, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, snowmobiles, boats and ATVs. Unfortunately, no matter which vehicle you use, you face the risk of serious injuries or death in an accident caused by the negligence of another motorist.

The vehicle accident attorneys at Skelton, Taintor & Abbott can help you receive compensation for any harm that a careless or reckless driver causes. For a free consultation with our vehicle accident lawyers, call us today at (800) 639-7026 or contact us online.

We are known for our skill, experience and integrity, and we have handled personal injury and wrongful death claims throughout the state of Maine, including in the towns and cities of Auburn, Rockland, Waterville, Augusta, Bangor, Lewiston, Biddeford, Portland and South Portland.

Our vehicle accident attorneys have legal expertise in a variety of claims, including:

  • Car accidents: We represent victims of accidents caused by distracted or drunk drivers, speeding, recklessness, dangerous road conditions and defective or dangerously designed automotive parts.
  • Truck accidents: Speeding, fatigue and drowsiness can lead to accidents involving trucks, also called 18 wheelers, big rigs, tractor trailers or semis.
  • Motorcycle accidents: Frequently, a motorcycle rider is injured or killed by another motorist failing to check for the motorcyclist before making a lane change, pulling onto the roadway or turning at an intersection.
  • Snowmobile accidents: Numerous factors can lead to snowmobile-related injuries and fatalities, including alcohol or drug use, excessive speed or lack of familiarity with trails.
  • Boat accidents: Your ability to be compensated may depend on the location of the accident (inland, coastal or international waters), the type of boat involved (commercial or recreational), the jurisdiction and the role negligence played.
  • ATV accidents: Although operator error often causes ATV or three-wheeler accidents, those accidents can also be blamed on vehicle defects that make ATVs unstable and prone to overturning.

By working with an experienced Maine vehicle accident attorney, you may be able to obtain compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of companionship or, in some cases, punitive damages.
