Automotive Accidents

Every year there are more than six million car accidents in the United States.  Nearly three million people are injured as a result.

If you have been in an auto accident that occurred because of someone else’s carelessness, you have a legal right to recover financial compensation for the damages you have suffered.  You are entitled to reimbursement for your automobile damage, for your rental car expenses, for towing and storage fees, and for your personal injuries including physical and emotional injuries, medical expenses, permanent disabilities, lost wages, and impairment of earning capacity.  We will thoroughly investigate your case and gather relevant evidence. For a guide to the types of claims that you can pursue, please review the article “Making Dollars and Sense Out of Insurance Claims”.

It is important to retain legal counsel as soon as possible following an accident.  The insurance companies tend to delay payment for the car damage, attempt to place blame on the victim, and attempt to entice claimants into “low ball” settlements.  Our job is to speak on your behalf to obtain the maximum benefits available for you.  We can also help you to obtain financial assistance to pay for your medical treatment even if you do not have medical insurance.  When you have completed medical treatment and no further improvement in your physical condition is anticipated, we will get fair and just compensation from the insurance companies involved. If they fail to offer a reasonable settlement, we will take your case to court.

To discuss your car accident claim, please do not hesitate to contact us today. The consultation is free. Let our family protect yours
