Auto Accident Attorneys
Serious Auto Accidents
SERIOUS AUTO ACCIDENTS OR CAR WRECKS ARE SCARY and often leave you overwhelmed wondering what to do next.
After a catastrophic car accident, hiring a personal injury trial attorney to handle your auto accident case may be the last thought on your mind. With all that’s going through your mind, your attorney can advocate for you and use their knowledge of the law and insurance company tactics to negotiate the best outcome for your settlement. Experienced insurance adjusters will use their experience and attempt to undervalue your claim and talk you into a lower settlement. They are not in it to help you- insurance adjusters are always looking to save a dollar for their company.
How would I pay for an attorney after a wreck?
That is why most personal injury firms operate on what is called a contingency fee basis which means they take nothing up front, and instead they take a percentage of the final settlement. This is helpful because most experienced attorneys’ hourly rates are well over $300.00 per hour and most people are simply unable to pay such an hourly fee, especially after a major accident. Personal injury attorneys are also experienced in arguing for all of the elements of damages to which you are entitled, including past/future physical pain, past/future mental anguish, past/future physical impairment, and past/future disfigurement. This experience also helps them to obtain the best outcome for you. Not only are they well-versed on making the damages arguments, they are also experienced at rebutting the insurance company’s common defenses, such as gaps in treatment, pre-existing conditions, and what they deem unnecessary treatment.
Auto Accidents Can Be Dangerous
As we all know, car accidents can be very dangerous and can turn serious quickly. Because of this we always advise victims to go get checked out immediately by a medical professional to make sure you are okay. It is important to understand that one single accident could change your entire life. For instance, vehicle crashes are a leading cause of traumatic brain injury. These injuries are caused by blows or piercing injuries to the head/brain, and can change your personality, motor functions and quality of life permanently. They are also often missed by initial treatment providers and symptoms may not occur for several days or even weeks after the accident.
Other common injuries suffered during car accidents include:
- Spinal cord injuries
- Back injuries
- Internal injuries
- Broken bones
- Appendage damage
- Crush injuries
- PTSD, etc.
