Compensation for Car Accident Injuries

Most people take reasonable precautions to defend against unexpected disasters by insuring their homes and vehicles, providing medical insurance for the family and many include life insurance to cover all contingencies. You may have been assured that if disaster strikes, all it takes is one phone call to your insurance company. When a serious car accident results in severe or even catastrophic injuries, the reality of how insurance companies deal with such an event may prove very different than you expected. At a time like this, you need to consult a respected personal injury attorney who can work to help you gain the compensation you are due.

Severe injuries such as brain injuries, eye injuries, disfigurement, serious burn injuries, and spine injuries often require the attention of specialists and a number of surgical procedures. The medical expenses which result can soon become enormous. When extensive medical care or life-long treatment is needed the costs may exceed the limits on your medical insurance policy. Contrary to all the advertising you see and read, insurance companies are in business to show a profit at the end of the year. Paying out large amounts in injury or wrongful death claims only reduces their profits. Insurance adjusters are well trained in how to keep the amount of their offer to a minimum and in estimating how small an amount that an injured person might be talked into accepting as a settlement. An auto accident lawyer at our firm is experienced in the various tactics used by insurance companies and aggressively pursues full recovery of all damages.

Severe injuries can take a long time to heal, in some cases years. If your injuries were caused by the negligent behavior of another your claim for compensation may include medical expenses, future medical care, lost wages and loss of future earnings, and other costs directly related to the accident as well as distress, pain and suffering, and other general damages. Talk to a skilled personal injury attorney at our firm who is prepared to fight to ensure you obtain the maximum in compensation.

Protecting the Rights of Car Accident Victims is our Number One Priority

Being involved in a serious car accident can be devastating to a victim and his or her family. While the accident itself and the injuries caused by the accident are more than enough for any victim to handle, dealing with unfair insurance adjusters, and responsibilities arising out of an auto accident make for an extremely unpleasant experience.

Our experienced car accident attorneys advise victims of motor vehicle accidents to speak to legal counsel as soon as practicable. Protecting your rights is our number one priority. This all starts with gathering evidence at the scene, such as measuring skid marks and obtaining witness statements. There may be a need to take photographs that can preserve critical evidence.

When The Insurance Company Downplays your Injuries

The insurance company for the driver who caused the accident is going to be experienced in dealing with injury and property damage claims. They will be gearing up for the prospect of litigation from the moment they are notified of an injury claim. These insurance companies will often deamand a tape-recorded statement. Without an experienced auto accident lawyer, you are at risk of being taken advantage of. Any recorded statement is only for the benefit of the insurance company, not for your benefit.

Insurance adjusters may also request a signed medical release from the injury victim. That allows the insurance company to obtain any of your medical records, regardless of whether they are related to the accident or not. This is unfair! More often than not, the insurance companies of the driver that caused the accident will NOT pay for your medical expenses or authorize you to seek skilled medical care. They are under no legal obligation to do so until there is a resolution of the entire injury claim.

Damage to Your Vehicle

A question that usually arises soon after an accident occurs regards getting your vehicle fixed, or being paid for the damage done to your vehicle in the accident.

Insurance companies typically address these property damage claims soon after the accident. Insurance companies love to argue over property damage claims also.

Particularly, they will argue that your vehicle isn’t worth as much as you may think…or they will attempt to fix your vehicle with used second-hand parts.

Highly-Trained Commercial Vehicle Injury Lawyers

Negligent truckers and careless trucking companies are responsible for thousands of serious auto accidents every year. And every year, those victims seriously injured by negligent truck drivers must fight against well-funded insurance companies to get the compensation to which they are legally entitled.

Sometimes, innocent victims and surviving family members are tricked to accept an offer of far lesser value than what they are legally entitled to because they do not understand the complex laws that govern the commercial trucking industry. Insurance companies count on these victims and will pressure you into a quick settlement to avoid analysis by an experienced trucking accident lawyer.

The lawyers at our firm represent the pinnacle of commercial motor vehicle accident injury advocates. Our lawyers are members of respected national trucking injury victim advocacy organizations, including the Association of Plaintiff’s Interstate Trucking Lawyers of America. We are feared by trucking companies and their commercial insurance carriers. Why? Simply put, because we have a department at the firm which focuses solely on Semi-truck accident litigation.

We invest significant time and resources in vigorous continuing education on the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and all local state regulations and statutes which may apply in these complex cases.

A Careless Truck Driver can Cause Devastating Accidents

Truck drivers and their employers must adhere to a strict set of rules and regulations when operating their multi-ton commercial vehicles. While many truck drivers do their best to follow these regulations and be safe on the road, there are those who push the limits to meet tight deadlines and increase profits.

We have obtained tens of millions of dollars in compensation for truck accident victims and their families. We are exceptionally passionate in these cases in an effort to change the way truck drivers and their employers operate.
