Have You Been in a Motor Vehicle Accident?

Victims of auto accidents, motorcycle accidents and truck accidents are the most prevalent kind of personal injury claim. These claims are typically based on the theory of negligence.

Accident Victim Frequently Asked Questions

How does the amount of medical expenses arising from my motor vehicle accident injuries influence the value of my case?

The value of an accident victim's claim is determined by a number of variables, including the total cost of your medical bills. Some injuries require continuous medical treatment, which will be factored into your overall damages.

How does the court gauge damages in a motor vehicle accident for a traumatic brain injury?

Extent of bodily injury is a key factor of total damages, both due to resulting medical bills as well as loss of income and quality of life. All of these affect the award amount when obtaining compensation.

Where hazardous road conditions trigger a motor vehicle accident, can the municipality be held accountable?

If unsafe driving conditions are the cause of a motor vehicle accident because of neglect by the party responsible to keep the roads safe, your attorney will collect all available evidence in order to pursue reimbursement for damages. This includes both property and personal injury damages caused by negligence. Even if you are partially responsible, you might pursue compensation for the portion of damages caused by the other party, including a municipality.

What actions should I take at the scene of my motor vehicle accident?

Can an accident victim anticipate a fair settlement from the insurer if negotiated without an attorney?

An insurance company's objective is to find a reason to deny your claim, or resolve a case dispute for the least amount of money possible. Prior to obtaining compensation from an insurance company, a skilled attorney with your wellbeing in mind will help you determine suitable reimbursement for damages. Photos of the scene taken promptly after the accident has occurred are a critical part of evidence documenting the damages and how they may have been sustained.

If I get involved in a motor vehicle accident, how do I know if there is a cause of action against the other party?

Property damages or bodily injury that might be a result of the actions of another party provide a possible cause for action for automobile accident victims. Your lawyer will need as much evidence as possible to determine liability for the damages you have sustained. Taking pictures of the scene and visiting a medical professional as soon as possible will help start your healing process, as well as identify the cause of action and develop the evidence required for compensation.

What are the damages you can recover in a motor vehicle accident, traumatic brain injury case?

Past and future medical expenses, past and future wage loss, pain and suffering, and loss of a normal life are some of the damages for which a victim may pursue compensation. The state of health and financial position of the victim prior to the accident affects the amount of compensation.

What damages can a family collect when the motor vehicle accident victim is a loved one?

There are two causes of actions that can be sought on behalf of a deceased loved one: wrongful death and survival. The family can recuperate money under the wrongful death act for the loss of love, affection, and support. This includes loss of income and other types of financial security and support.

Your loved one's estate can seek a survival cause of action, and recoup damages the victim sustained between the time of injury and the time of their death.

Why do I need to speak to an attorney immediately after sustaining an injury?

Determining fault in an accident can be complex, particularly if fault lies with more than one party. An experienced attorney will help you document all evidence of damages, including photos of the accident and future medical bills, and assess loss of income and changes to quality of life. Discussing the claims with insurance providers is best done with the professional assistance of lawyers who have been beside you from the beginning.
