Automobile Related Injury or Death

Every day on U.S. roads, approximately 115 Americans die in an auto accident-that’s one fatality every 13 minutes. Millions more suffer serious, sometimes permanent, injury or disability. Given our dependency on automobiles, the odds that you will be involved in an auto accident at least once in your life are substantial.

While the damages incurred in most auto accidents are typically handled through insurance companies, many motorists are uninsured or underinsured and require the help of a qualified personal injury attorney. We have extensive experience handling auto accident cases and are dedicated to getting you the compensation you deserve. If you or a loved one has suffered serious injury or death in an auto accident, please contact us today for a FREE case evaluation.

Causes of Auto Accidents

Driver negligence is the number one cause of auto accidents and may include:

  • Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • Reckless driving.
  • Driving too fast or too slow.
  • Failure to obey traffic signs and signals.
  • Inattention.
  • Distraction i.e. Cell phone.

Other common causes of auto accidents may involve vehicle defects, malfunctioning traffic signals or other road defects. Depending on the various factors surrounding the accident, an automobile manufacturer, a driver, a government entity or other party may be held responsible for the damages incurred. Please note that determining liability in an auto accident case is complex. A knowledgeable personal injury lawyer can review your case at no charge and answer any questions you may have regarding liability laws.

Recover Your Damages

An auto accident can affect any person at any time and the outcome can be physically, psychologically and financially devastating. Furthermore, individuals already suffering from degenerative conditions such as degenerative disc disease could experience more pain as a result of a car crash. Fortunately, people who have sustained damage in an auto accident through no fault of their own have the legal right to seek compensation for their economic and non-economic losses including pain and suffering, lost income or earning capacity, medical expenses and more.

If you or a loved one has been harmed in an auto accident ever – it is wise to seek the help of a competent personal injury attorney who can protect your legal rights and maximize your interests. This is true even if the other party is uninsured or underinsured. You may well have a claim under your own insurance for those benefits.
