Regardless of how your accident occurred, you have the right to consult with an attorney and explore your legal options. We can establish fault and liability, estimate your damages, and seek justice on your behalf. No matter how complex your case may be, we can help you with your accident claim.
When we submit your claim to an insurance company, we will attempt to prove how your accident happened and who is at fault. Our attorneys can gather evidence to substantiate your claim, including:
Photos or video footage
Statements from witnesses
Accident and/or police reports
Our legal team can use the evidence to verify your claim and estimate the value of your case. We have the staff, resources, and experience necessary to explore all the evidence so that we can hold the responsible parties accountable for your injuries and other damages.
How much your claim is worth depends on the circumstances of the accident and the extent of your losses. Common damages in an auto accident include:
An auto accident can cause severe injuries, leaving you with extensive medical bills. Damages you may be able to claim include ambulatory services, ER visits, hospital stays, rehabilitation, pain medication, and doctor visits.
If you were out of work during your recovery, you may be able to account for lost pay, benefits, tips, or bonuses. In a disability or dismemberment case, we can also estimate your projected income or retirement based on your lost future earning capacity.
Pain and suffering can include severe physical pain, emotional anguish, or loss of consortium. If you seek counseling or therapy due to accident-related anxiety or depression, you may be able to add the expense to your claim.
If your family lost a loved one in an auto accident, you may be able to claim damages such as burial costs, funeral expenses, pre-death medical expenses, and pain and suffering of the deceased. Nothing can replace a loved one. However, your family should never have to pay for someone else’s negligence or reckless behavior.
The first thing to do after an auto accident case is to seek medical attention. Even if you think that you are not injured, you may want to visit the ER or your doctor and get an exam. Next, keep careful records and document everything related to the accident. Your personal injury attorney will use these documents to build your case.
