Each year, more than five million auto accidents occur in the United States, injuring more than two million people and killing more than 30,000. No matter how careful a driver you are, you cannot control other drivers’ behavior.
The damage caused by an auto accident may be severe and devastating. As an accident victim, you may incur pain and suffering, property damage and extensive and ongoing medical expenses (including acute care and rehabilitative care). You may lose wages while away from work. You may be permanently disabled, impacting your prospects for employment.
To complicate matters, it can be difficult to demonstrate that another driver was at fault in an accident. Physical evidence, eyewitness accounts, and medical evidence can all be compromised if it not gathered early and properly. If you are injured, or if a loved one is killed in an auto accident, it is important not only to speak with an attorney as soon as possible, but also to choose one with extensive experience in the field.
We can help you to file and pursue your claim with your own insurance company and to litigate against the other party’s insurer. It is the job of insurance company lawyers to find weaknesses in claims even when the claims seem indisputable. You need an auto accident attorney who is familiar with those lawyers’ tactics and is prepared to take your case all the way to trial if necessary.
