Careless and reckless driving, vehicle defects, poorly designed roadways, and malfunctioning traffic controls all cause devastating accidents. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, car crashes claimed the lives of more than 36,000 people in 2018. In addition to these tragic deaths, car and truck accidents cause millions of serious injuries each year.
This means that each day, as a result of car, truck, motorcycle, and commercial vehicle accidents, parents lose children, spouses lose their companions, and individuals lose the lives they had as able-bodied people. After the trauma of an auto accident, victims and their loved ones face a complicated legal terrain and are often met with resistance when seeking full compensation from insurance companies.
You might have been a pedestrian or driving with no insurance or very limited insurance. Depending on the circumstances, a settlement might still be possible. Always discuss your specific situation with an experienced attorney.
Whether someone has been injured in a rear-end collision, multiple car accident, or an incident involving alcohol and a driver with a history of DUIs or DWIs, the victim is entitled to compensation for the hardships created by the situation. Do you need someone to fight for you because of an accident involving a car, truck, or other vehicle? Please contact our firm today for a no-obligation, no-expenses assessment.
