Auto Accidents

Involved in a car accident? You may be able to recover financial compensation for your injuries, property damage, or noneconomic damages such as emotional pain and suffering. Accidents, such as car accidents, are the third leading cause of death in the United States, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Car accidents can be minor, causing whiplash and minor lacerations only, or major, resulting in permanent disability, disfigurement, or death.

Auto accidents can involve much more than simply going through the claims process with your insurance company. If your accident involved a tire defect, there is a possibility you could sue the tire manufacturer. If your accident involved a commercial vehicle like a semi-truck, you could potentially sue the trucking company.

WHY WORK WITH A LAWYER?

The biggest mistake victims make after being injured in an auto accident is to believe that they will be fairly compensated by the at-fault party’s insurance company. This is simply isn’t true. Insurance companies are in business to make money, and they do whatever they can to minimize claims. By working with an experienced injury attorney, you can focus on recovering while a professional handles your claim. You can also improve your chances of being fully compensated.
