Call Us Today About Your Auto Accident
A car accident can be a very traumatic experience. Some people think they can handle a vehicle case without having any legal representation. Although it is true that you aren’t required to hire an automobile lawyer, those who choose to represent themselves often receive disappointing results.
You need a lawyer to sort out the details, find out what you’re entitled to and stand against insurance companies that don’t want to pay you what you rightfully deserve. You deserve financial recovery, and a lawyer from our firm will get you there. An experienced lawyer knows how to get you a higher compensation amount than you would have gotten on your own. We have years of experience and will work diligently to make sure that you are compensated for having to go through this stressful time.
Experienced In All Types Of Motor Vehicle Accidents
The shortcomings of an at-fault driver in causing a motor vehicle accident affect nearly every part of the innocent party’s life. The innocent party loses past wages, they lose the ability to work in the future, medical bills pile up, and other debts mount, not to mention the constant pain and suffering that wears on the person’s mental well being. An inattentive driver can cause injuries that last a lifetime including broken bones, nerve damage, traumatic brain injuries, or even the death of a loved one. We understand and we can help.

This gives us the ability to effectively advocate for you. Contact us today to discuss your potential case.
Cell Phones and Driving Accidents
If you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, make sure not to distract yourself with a mobile device. According to a recent study by the National Safety Council’s annual injury and fatality report, cellphones are said to have caused 26 percent of the nation’s auto accidents in the past year.
One common misconception is that texting and driving are the major causes for accidents with a mobile device, however only five percent of these were due to texting and driving. The rest involved people using a handheld or hands-free cellular device. This goes to show you that even though you may think talking on the phone is not as bad as texting, not focusing on the road in front of you is not safe.
If you were involved in a crash with a driver who was distracted by their mobile device or any other electronic, make sure to contact us today. You shouldn’t have to pay for anyone else’s negligence and distractions on the road.
A very important fact to know is that every time you drive and talk on your cellphone, your risk of being involved in a crash increases by 400 percent!
Common Injuries from Collisions
Car crashes are dangerous for all parties involved, but certain individuals are more at risk than others. For example, older adults and children are more likely to sustain injuries in car accidents. These injuries can range in severity and permanence and may include:
- Broken bones;
- Spinal cord damage;
- Traumatic brain injury;
- Nerve damage;
- Internal bleeding;
- Organ damage; and
- Psychological injuries.
Damages From Car Crashes
Treating injuries sustained in car crashes can be painful and expensive. Recovery may require weeks of costly therapy, multiple meetings with specialists, expensive medications, and painful surgeries. Victims may need to take time off work and obtain help with childcare or transportation to and from appointments. Aside from the emotional toll this can take on victims and their families, this process can also be financially devastating. Other medical expenses may include:
- Ambulance fees;
- Medical equipment, such as crutches or a wheelchair;
- Psychiatric treatment; and
- In-home services.
Fortunately, victims may be able to obtain compensation to cover the harm they suffered as a result of another person’s negligence. Aside from medical bills, this could mean reimbursement for the costs of a number of expenses, including:
- Lost wages;
- Pain and suffering;
- Repair or replacement of damaged property;
- Future lost earnings;
- Emotional distress;
- Loss of consortium; and
- Funeral expenses.
