Auto Accidents

Every driver operating a vehicle has a responsibility to follow the rules of the road and drive in such a manner that he or she does not endanger other persons or property. Accidents are usually caused by the negligence, inattention, or misconduct of a driver.

If you or your property has been damaged due to the fault of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation. You may be compensated for pain and suffering, medical expenses related to the accident, lost income, and the negative impact that the injuries have had on your life.

Although the insurance carrier for the driver at fault will be primarily responsible for compensating you for your damages, if the at-fault driver is uninsured or under-insured, your damages may be paid in whole or in part by the uninsured/underinsured provisions of your automobile policy.

It is usually extremely difficult for an individual who is inexperienced in these matters to negotiate a fair settlement with the insurance company without legal advice. Thus, it is usually advisable to speak to a personal injury lawyer before discussing your claim with an insurance adjuster.

In these cases, there is normally no fee for our services unless we negotiate a settlement or obtain a judgment in your favor.
