Car Accident Attorney
Whenever someone gets behind the wheel of a car, they take responsibility for the safety of everyone else on the road. The law requires that a driver act with reasonable care and obey all traffic laws. Nevertheless, accidents can and do happen all the time. Unfortunately, these accidents result in thousands of deaths and injuries every year. If the accident was a result of a driver's negligence then the negligent driver must be held accountable so that the innocent injured party is fairly compensated for their damages.
I have represented many people who were injured in a car accident as a result of other drivers' negligence, but I do not run a high volume practice. I am able to give every single car accident client the personal attention they need to make sure that we maximize their recovery from the negligent driver.
In many cases, the true extent of the injury suffered is not immediately apparent. The seriousness of the injury may only become clear over time as treatment options are explored with a qualified doctor. Therefore, if a case is rushed to settlement, it is possible that it will be settled for less than it is worth.
I offer a free consultation for your case - it won't cost you anything to find out what I think about your case. I handle car accident cases on a contingency fee, meaning that I don't get paid unless I can collect money for you.
Auto accident cases often involve drunk drivers or hit and run drivers. These cases can be worth substantially more based on the aggravating circumstances unique to every case. I also handle cases involving semi tractor-trailer collisions and rollover accidents.
Injuries suffered in car accidents can be permanent and life altering. I work hard in every case to determine the full extent of the injuries, which may include traumatic brain injury or other head injuries that are not immediately apparent after the accident. I have handled cases involving herniated or ruptured discs causing permanent and severe pain throughout the spine and legs. These injuries often require surgery or are likely to require surgery in the future to alleviate the pain and suffering caused, and it is imperative that you get compensated fully now so that you will have the money needed to pay for future medical bills.
I will work with you to understand your options on how to handle your case. If you have medical insurance, I will work with you and explain how that can affect getting you fully compensated - it can be very confusing and can make a major difference in the end result of your case. I understand that your immediate goals are to get the medical treatment you need, pay off your medical bills, get paid your lost wages, and be fairly compensated for your pain and suffering.
