We don’t always believe that serious accidents occur in our area, but they can and do happen. And the consequences can be serious.
It’s important to know that you do not have to go it alone. If someone else was to blame for the crash, you don’t have to be left on the hook for expenses such as medical care, property damage, loss of wages, and pain and suffering. Our compassionate car accident lawyers will work tirelessly to seek the compensation you deserve. Let us help you in the following ways and more.
In the aftermath of an accident, your primary concern above all else is to get immediate medical attention for your injuries. Even if you are not sure if you have an injury, it’s still a good idea to visit your doctor as many injuries do not manifest until later.
Generally, car accidents happen when a person is driving carelessly, distracted, impaired, or any combination of these factors. Our skilled auto accident lawyers will work to identify who is the at-fault party(s) for your injuries and ensure that the appropriate measures are taken to hold them responsible.
After a serious car accident, your time should be focused on your recovery, not dealing with confusing legal jargon. Let your accident lawyer manage all the tedious documents and deadlines so your case can move forward accurately and expeditiously. These tasks can be complicated, but they are necessary to pursue compensation for large medical expenses, loss of income, and even any pain and suffering you may be dealing with.
Most of the time, the insurance companies will contest your claims because they simply do not want to pay for damages. They may say the damages are not that bad, or even that the damages don’t warrant compensation at all. On the other hand, the insurers are much more likely to treat your claims with the respect and fairness they deserve when they must deal with your attorney.
A negligent driver may not be the only responsible party in an accident. We’ll investigate all of the potentially responsible parties to seek a fair and just settlement on your behalf. For example, the employer of the driver may have neglected basic repairs and maintenance of their vehicle, and the failure of a vehicle component may have contributed to the cause of the accident.
