Located in the nation's capital -- just blocks from the Supreme Court of the United States -- Bill Farley specializes in all types of personal injury and wrongful death cases.  "I fight for injured people so they can recover from those at fault."  Those who cause personal injuries can be held accountable.
 
Besides personal injuries, I also assist people who wish to recover their good names. Every person has the right to his or her good name and no one has the right to steal that good name.  If you have been defamed, you need to hold those who stole your name responsible.
 
I represent individuals that have been injured by another’s negligence. Damage may include broken bones, damage to reputation, or property resulting from a Motor Vehicle Accident, Large Truck Accident, Bus Accident, Passenger Van, Motorcycle Accident, Boating Accident, Aviation Accident, Swimming Accident, Train Accident, Wrongful Death, Slip and Fall, Unsafe Premises and Defamation.

Motor Vehicle Accidents. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, more than 42,800 people were killed in motor vehicle accidents and almost 3,000,000 people were injured in Motor Vehicle Accidents in 2002. More than 6,000,000 accidents occurred in 2002. These accidents were often caused by drunk drivers, fatigue and reckless behavior on the part of other drivers. If one of these drivers has injured you, or killed a loved one, please call us so we can help you get the justice and compensation you deserve.

Truck Accidents. Large trucks are those vehicles that have a gross vehicle weight rating of greater than 10,000. In 2002 large trucks were involved in accidents that caused 4,183 people their lives. Truck tractors pulling semi-trailers accounted for 63% of those trucks involved in those fatal crashes.

Many people are injured by large trucks each year. In 2002 alone 48,955 large trucks were involved in injury crashes and more than 130,000 people were injured in those accidents. One cause of these accidents, truck driver fatigue, has been estimated to have caused more than $2.3 billion dollars in damage. From 1997-1999 the average cost per crash with a large truck was almost $60,000. If you have been involved in an accident with a large truck, we can help you.

Bus Accidents. There are more than 670,000 Commercial Buses registered in the United States. In the decade between 1991 and 2001, an average of 26 children died each year in school bus accident, 19 as pedestrians - getting on or off a school bus - and seven as passengers. More than 19,000 people are injured every year on buses. If you were injured, we can help.

Passenger Vans. According to government statistics, over 440 persons have been killed and hundreds injured in rollover crashes involving the large, heavy vans since 1990.

National Highway Transportation Safety Administration research has shown that 15-passenger vans have a rollover risk that increases dramatically as the number of occupants increases from fewer than five to more than ten. In fact, 15-passenger vans (with 10 or more occupants) had a rollover rate in single vehicle crashes that is nearly three times the rate of those that were lightly loaded.

Over the past decade, 80 percent of people killed in rollover crashes in 15-passenger vans were unbelted. Passengers can dramatically reduce their risk of being killed or seriously injured in a rollover crash by simply using their seat belts. Organizations that own 15-passenger vans should have a written seat belt use policy. Drivers should be responsible for enforcing the policy.

If you have been injured in a passenger van accident we can help you recover and obtain the justice and compensation you deserve.

Motorcycle Accidents. More than 120,000 motorcyclists have died in traffic crashes since the enactment of the Highway Safety and National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966. Motorcyclists were about 26 times as likely as passenger car occupants to die in a motor vehicle traffic crash and 5 times as likely to be injured. In 2002 alone, more than 3,200 people were killed in motorcycle accidents. About one-half of the motorcycles involved in fatal crashes in 2002 involved collisions with other motor vehicles. There were more than 65,000 people injured in motorcycle accidents. If you were one of these people, or the loved one of those killed, we can help you obtain the justice and compensation you deserve.

Boating Accident. There are more than 5,705 boating accidents every year. In 2002 there were more than 750 fatalities, and 4,062 injuries. Property damage exceeded $39,000,000. Many of these accidents were caused by the negligence of the operator. Operator inattention, carelessness/reckless operation, operator inexperience, and excessive speed are the leading contributing factors of all reported accidents. If you have been injured in a boating accident we can help.

You can decrease your risk of injury or death by wearing a life preserver. Seventy percent of all fatal boating accident victims drowned (524 out of 750). Nearly 85% of the victims who drowned were not wearing their personal flotation device (PFD or lifejacket). Overall, fatal accident data show approximately 440 lives could have been saved last year if boaters had worn their lifejackets.

Aviation Accident. Aviation law concerns many aircraft-related incidents and accidents, including: violations of FAA regulations; accidents caused by aviation equipment, structural or design problems with planes; pilot error. The number of aviation accidents varies each year. More than 1,800 aviation accidents occurred in the 2003 causing almost 700 people to lose their lives. If the airline, it pilots and crew, the aircraft manufacturer or other responsible parties acted negligently, recklessly, or with intentional disregard for your safety you may have a case.
