CAR ACCIDENTS - Qualified and Experienced Car Accident Attorneys Make a Difference.

Auto accidents are responsible for the injury and death of thousands of people each year. Drivers, passengers and even pedestrians struck by cars can suffer life-altering trauma through no fault of their own. Many contributing factors lead to car accidents. Some may include:   

  • Faulty vehicle equipment
  • Negligence on the part of another driver
  • Inclement weather
  • Unsafe roads, bridges or freeway ramps
  • Improper signage 
  • Malfunctioning streetlights or railroad crossing protections 
  • Wild animals 
  • Unsuitable mechanical repairs

About 40,000 people per year are involved in fatal traffic accidents, and many hundreds of thousands more are injured. Most are entitled to compensation for their injuries, and contacting the right car accident lawyer as soon as possible after an accident is crucial. Death or debilitating injuries that result from a car accident require unique expertise. Negotiating with insurance companies or an uninsured driver is most successful when handled by a competent, highly qualified personal injury attorney who has a strong background in motor vehicle accident cases. Injuries derived from an automobile accident should always be discussed with an attorney before any other action is taken. This is especially true if the loss is substantial, such as: 

  • The death of a loved one
  • A head injury
  • A spinal cord injury
  • A traumatic brain injury (TBI)
  • Disfigurement
  • The loss of sight, smell, hearing or taste
  • Lost limbs 
  • Complicated fractures 
  • Internal injuries 

Each state has its own guidelines and statute of limitations for medical and personal injury claims, and any car accident victim working with an accident attorney who understands the nuances of a state’s unique protocol will benefit from that insight. Claims for injuries resulting from an automobile accident may include compensation for: 

  • Medical expenses 
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of income or future income 
  • Punitive damages for defective vehicles or defective repairs 
  • Ongoing medical care 
  • Loss of companionship or support 
  • Loss of quality of life

Injuries may not always be readily apparent following an automobile accident, and adverse symptoms may develop over time. Other symptoms that initially appear to be minor may prove to be far more consequential. Delayed action following an accident can limit or even eliminate otherwise pursuable claims. Following five simple steps will help protect current or future claims as well secure the ongoing viability and potentially successful outcome of the case.

  1. Seek legal advice immediately
  2. Do not sign anything without legal representation 
  3. Follow the attorney’s advice with regards to any conversations with others, including insurance companies, the party at fault or opposing attorneys
  4. Seek medical assistance immediately
  5. Keep records

An injured victim is in danger of waiving all legal rights if he or she disregards the above guidelines.

The entities involved in causing harm or injury will seek to minimize claims by attempting to settle for less than is warranted. Representation by the right auto accident lawyer can protect injured claimants from further harm at the hands of opposing parties.
