Careless drivers are responsible for many serious accidents on American roads. If you or a loved one have been hurt due to the actions of a careless driver, contact our firm to learn about your legal rights and options.
When you have been in an auto accident, you may have a sense of who caused it; however, issues of fault can be complicated, by who acted when and by which laws govern the situation. To establish that the other driver was negligent, you must prove that the driver breached a duty of care, and that the breach caused your injuries and damages. The help of an attorney is immensely valuable when battling an insurance company for compensation for your injuries.
Don’t face insurance companies alone.
When a driver refuses or is unable to keep proper auto liability insurance in effect, that driver puts others at risk. If an uninsured driver injures another person, no insurance will be available to cover the injuries or damages. Injured parties, however, may be covered by their own insurance policy which often provides “uninsured” or “underinsured” coverage. If you have been involved in an accident involving an uninsured (or underinsured) driver, it is very important to contact an attorney to create a plan of action.
When you’ve been injured in a car accident, no-fault auto insurance from your own insurance company may allow payment of your medical bills. Not every state has no-fault insurance, but those that do have very specific laws governing when, how much, and for how long the injured party may collect. Consult with an attorney to discuss how the law in your state treats your right to recover for your medical expenses or damages.
