Personal Injury/Auto Accidents

Auto Accidents

Cases arising out of automobile accidents are by far the most common type of personal injury case in our court system today. This is not surprising, given that every 10 seconds, someone in the United States is involved in a car accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances.” A failure to use reasonable care is considered negligence. If you have been involved in a motor vehicle accident, you must not hesitate to seek legal counsel in order to best protect your interests.

Many times, insurance companies give the public the impression that handling automobile accident claims is a simple matter that does not require the assistance of an attorney. Insurance companies often want to take a recorded statement of an unrepresented person so that they can obtain information that can be used against that person. Insurance adjusters are trained to reduce the recoveries of people who are uneducated in handling these types of claims. They will down-play any damage done to the vehicles and assert that there is no way that someone could sustain a personal injury based on such a “minimal” impact. The bottom line is they will do everything they can to deny or delay paying on any claim. Our job is to work hard to prevent this from happening. We handle personal injuries on a contingent fee basis, which means that if we do not recover for you, then you will not pay us a fee. We can provide assistance with:

  • Property Damage Questions
