Auto accidents are one of the most common causes of personal injury. Although many are minor fender-benders, a shocking number of accidents cause severe injury, permanent disability, or even death. These traumas often result in pain and suffering, emotional distress, lost wages, medical expenses, and property damage. But what if we told you the worst might be yet to come? Battling for months with insurance companies to pay your claim is sometimes worse than the accident itself. You have to deal with, mounting medical bills, lost earnings, car repairs, and physical and emotional pain, all while fighting an insurance company that makes money by taking as long as possible to pay you as little as possible.
Unfortunately, many people wait until after an auto accident to find out if they can handle insurance adjusters themselves, fearing a car accident lawyer may be too expensive. The reality is it’s more costly to do it on your own. When you are injured in an automobile accident, relying on your limited understanding of the confusing rules and regulations involved with this process can cause you even more harm. An experienced personal injury attorney will be invaluable in assisting you filing your auto accident claim. We handle all elements of the claim for you from resolving the property damage claim, lost wage statements and medical records and bill requests. In short, we will deal with the insurance company while you deal with getting better and we’ll make sure you get the settlement you deserve.
For personal injury claims we work on a contingency basis, which means that we charge no fee unless successful and then a fixed percentage of the settlement and/or verdict. This means no out of pocket costs for our clients. If you think that you or a loved one was injured due to someone else’s negligence, discuss the details with one of our personal injury lawyers. We will evaluate your claim and explain your options at no charge.
