Car wrecks cause tens of thousands of deaths and serious injuries every year.

If the negligence of another person caused your car accident, contact our office today. As always, we are paid only in the event of a positive outcome.
The person, or party, at fault in a car accident is determined by the law of torts. When a person chooses to get behind the wheel of a car and drive, they are subject to upholding a “Duty of Care” to those that they share the road with. When drivers breach this duty, by engaging in negligent driving practices, then serious injury can take place. In these circumstances you should contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Examples of negligent driving behaviors that cause automobile accidents, include but are not limited to:
- Drunk Driving
- Traveling with Excessive Speed
- Ignoring Signs
- Texting while Driving
- Failing to Yield
- Unlawful Turns
If you believe that the negligence of another driver was the cause of your accident, contact our office right away.
After the Car Accident
The moments following a car accident can be stressful and confusing. The first thing to do after a car accident is to remember to remain calm. It is not unusual for accident victims to be in shock and experience feelings of anger or fear. A couple of deep breaths will ease the driver’s nerves and help them prepare to collect the information that they will need to provide to police and insurance companies.
Wondering who is going to pay for vehicle repairs, ambulance costs, medical bills, and lost wages due to an injury can be hard to determine. Following an accident, insurance adjusters may pressure you to quickly accept a monetary settlement that may not be sufficient to take care of your current or future medical needs. If you believe that you have been injured in a car accident, it’s important to consult an attorney who can make sure that you are treated fairly.
