Auto accidents happen every day in America and are a common cause of property damage, physical injuries and death. Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teenagers. If you have been involved in a car wreck, you may be entitled to receive compensation for your damaged property and for any other harm that the accident caused. Compensation generally includes payment of medical bills and lost wages plus compensation for other damages like pain and suffering. This compensation may come from your own insurer or from the driver who was responsible for the accident. These factors and the extent of your injuries and damages will also dictate the amount of damages or compensation available.
A car wreck accident can affect your life in several ways. If you or a close friend or family member has been injured in an accident involving an automobile, truck or train, we have the experience and resources to help. Always contact a lawyer to discuss your case before signing anything.
Auto accidents can involve intricate issues. A lawyer will provide assistance with matters relating to insurance coverage, pre-existing medical conditions and proof of fault. You may also need help with the insurance adjuster who is professionally trained to successfully deny valid claims or settle for less than full value of your case.
The advise of an experienced lawyer and the assistance of a skilled advocate is essential in securing an adequate and fair recovery for your car crash case.
CAUSES OF CAR AND TRUCK ACCIDENTS:
Many of the accident injuries we have seen are caused by reckless driving, speeding, failure to observe traffic signs and signals, and DUI/DWI. Others were the result of rear-end crashes at high speeds. We are seeing more accidents related to distracted driving in the form of texting. Our policy in contested cases involving suspected texting while driving is to obtain cell phone and “check-in” records to determine if messages or updates were being posted at or near the time of the accident.
