Automobile / car accidents and truck wrecks cause untold suffering in our country. The physical pain and injuries, the property loss as vehicles are damaged, the costly repair or replacement and the loss of income are distressing. For many individuals, they are a part of their future as they struggle with disabilities, pain and loss of transportation. Vehicle accidents are generally covered under a complex umbrella of interrelating laws designed to prevent harm or compensate a person or property for harm. These are called Personal Injury Law and Tort Laws. Torts occur through unreasonable negligence, malicious intention or strict liability.
Medical bills such as doctor, hospital or physical therapy bills can be overwhelming. Accidents involving licensed, motorized vehicles, including cars, trucks, motorcycles, mopeds, snowmobiles, planes, boats, etc., may entitle victims of these accidents to legal compensation for these and loss of income and pain and suffering endured as a result.
Dangerous intersections, poorly designed and maintained roads, crossing traffic lanes, turning vehicles, impaired, unlicensed or drunken drivers, obscured vision due to weather conditions or improper highway design, faulty automobile equipment such as tires or airbags, worn or damaged roadway markings or other unsafe driving conditions lead to and contribute to accidents and collisions.
If an insurance company assigned a lawyer to defend you, but at the same time, reserves the right to question whether they will provide full coverage, there is potential for a conflict of interest. It is usually wise to hire your own attorney to evaluate the situation and ensure that your interests are protected. Initial consultations are free. Legal advice can save you time, trouble and money and can allow you to be compensated for your misfortune.
After your Automobile Accident, you may be able to recover damages for:
- Lost Wages
- Medical expenses
- Future medical expenses
- Pain and Suffering
