If you have been seriously injured in a car accident and have made the decision to take legal action against the negligent party, you may be entitled to significant compensation. This compensation in personal injury law is referred to as damages.
In a successful case, you may be able to recover both economic and noneconomic damages. Economic damages can include medical bills, lost wages, the need to hire in-home care, and more. Noneconomic damages can include things like pain and suffering, loss of independence, emotional distress, and loss of enjoyment of life.
One of the leading causes of automobile accidents in our country today is driver negligence. While other factors, such as poor weather conditions and unkept roads may play a part, negligence by one or both of the drivers often has the most dangerous results. Some of the various forms of driver negligence that our firm often sees include the following:

Immediately after an accident, your insurance will cover your medical bills and lost wages to an extent. If you have personal injury protection (PIP) that will also help you seek medical attention after an accident without the worry that you will amass overwhelming medical bills or suffer from a devastating loss of wages. When a car accident injury goes beyond the coverage of PIP, or if you do not have that coverage, you may need to consider your legal options. Contact us for a free consultation session with an expert who'll evaluate your case and determine how much it might be worth. In case you choose to hire us, our service fees are on a contingency basis. This means that you pay after and only if your case is won. If we do not succeed in getting you any sort of compensation, then you do not pay anything.
You are not required to accept an insurance companies initial offer. If you don’t have an attorney representing you, insurance companies will typically offer you the minimum amount possible to get you to accept their offer. Once you have accepted an offer from an insurance company, you cannot file a lawsuit. It is recommended that you talk to an attorney before accepting an offer.
After a car accident the first thing you should do is call the police. They will check the condition of all parties, take pictures, and prepare a detailed crash report. Second, you need to exchange details and insurance information. Third, make sure that you are seen by a doctor. Often people will feel okay immediately after an accident because of the shock, but then feel pain days later. This is not the time to tough it out. Seeking medical attention will provide documentation of your injuries that will greatly assist you if a lawsuit arises. Finally, hire an experienced car accident attorney. This will help ensure that you are not taken advantage of by the insurance company and that you recover the compensation you deserve.
