If you or a family member has suffered an injury in a serious accident caused by the negligence of another person, it is important to contact an experienced attorney. Navigating your way through the process that follows a serious accident is complex. We can help.
The first thing you need to think about is your health. You can let us worry about the many other issues including recovering compensation for any injury or damage you have suffered. We have expertise understanding what can be a very complex web of insurance carriers and policies. Our lawyers will work with your insurance company and the other parties to ensure the prompt payment of your medical bills, and lost wages and to obtain fair compensation for pain and suffering.
If you have been injured in a serious motor vehicle accident, you are quickly going to become involved with one or more insurance companies. And while these companies and the people who work for them are usually polite, reputable and ethical they are not your friend. They are a business.
Following an accident, many insurance companies will attempt to convince you to settle your claim quickly. This is almost always a bad idea. In many instances, the settlement an insurance company offers will not take into account the future implications of your injury. Or, the settlement may contain language releasing rights you don’t even yet fully understand. The best practice is to not sign any documentation until you meet with us, and we’ve had a chance to review the paperwork with you.
Our firm will immediately investigate your accident and all of the factors that might have contributed to it. We will interview witnesses, preserve any evidence and document the scene of the accident. Our lawyers will work closely with expert consultants such as engineers to determine the cause of the accident and medical professionals to determine if there are life-altering aspects to your injury, such as rehabilitation expenses, physical therapy or follow-up treatments. Our goal is to ensure your well-being both medically and financially.
