Serving Victims of Car Wrecks and Auto Accidents

Auto wrecks can occur in a split second and have life-altering and devastating impacts to the victims. Often, the physical injuries are painful with severe and long-term impacts lasting for years.  Medical treatment for severe injuries can be expensive with first responder/ambulance bills, hospital bills, doctor expenses, prescription drug costs, physical therapy and rehabilitation bills, and medical supply costs.  Very few people have enough money to pay for these expenses on their own. The value of your car wreck case depends on the facts of the case including the severity of your injuries, the amount of your damages, and other factors.  If you or a loved one has been in a serious car wreck or if you have a lost a family member in a fatal car crash, our law firm can help you through the legal process ahead.  

While you are injured or taking care of a loved one who was injured, it can be extremely challenging to navigate with insurance adjusters, get reliable quotes for damages, maintain accurate documentation of lost wages and medical expenses, and be able to negotiate with your insurance company for acceptable compensation. Depending on the severity of your injuries, ranging from minor bruising to life-threatening conditions, seeing the appropriate medical doctor and obtaining the correct documentation may help with your claims.

The Property Damages claim exists as the injured party seeks to have the vehicle fixed or paid for where there is a total loss.  Property damages may include the damaged vehicle and personal property that has been damaged or destroyed in the wreck.   

In some wrecks, aggravating circumstances exist as to the at fault party and that party’s acts or omissions which caused the wreck.  This may include driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs or other similar circumstances.  

Other legal questions that may exist on your wreck case, especially where there are catastrophic damages, include insurance coverages that may apply to the wreck including questions as to uninsured, underinsured, and/or excess liability coverages. Also, there are time limits (statutes of limitations) that can bar your recovery if you wait too long to pursue your claim(s).
