Automobile Accidents

If you have been in an accident, there is no doubt your life has been disrupted. With the right help there are often ways to solve the problems. We might be able to get you a rental car under your own insurance policy or the insurance policy of the wrong doer. Even if we cannot get them to pay for this “up front”, we can advise you about what can be done in order to recover that expense at the “end” of the case.

You often have the option of having your own insurance carrier repair the car or have the “other” insurer repair the car. There are advantages and disadvantages to either approach that vary from case to case. We can explain those issues and guide you through them.

Then there is the matter of injury. Who will pay for the medical treatment? Sometimes there are very few resources available and we can guide you to certain providers that understand enough to wait until the case is resolved in order to secure payment. Other times there are a multitude of resources available and surprisingly you can make multiple collections that are perfectly legal.

Sometimes the other driver does not have insurance. When that happens uninsured motorist laws make it possible to recover for your injuries against your own carrier. Many times our clients are not aware that they have coverage that provides for payment of injuries over and above what the “other” driver’s carrier pays. We are familiar with all these policies and can help you with them.

Once we are through the initial problems of car rental, car repair or replacement and medical treatment, then we focus on settling your case. Hard work and preparation are the best ways to secure a favorable settlement and your assistance is important. We will need pictures of the damaged car. We will need you to keep a careful record of all medical treatment. We will need to help you get all of the medical treatment you need for a successful recovery. Sometimes we can help you understand the medical process.

If necessary, as we move toward trial, we have many things to do together to persuade the jury to do the right thing. We have years of experience in the presentation of evidence during trial that will give you the best chance of a successful outcome in your case.

We offer various types of contingent fee contracts, and we do not get paid unless we win the case.  Please call us and we will help you through the process.
