Personal Injury Law – Auto Accidents

Receiving a traffic ticket is not the only thing we need to worry about when we get behind the wheel. Whether we like to admit it or not, car accidents happen. Each year, there are approximately 6 million car accidents in the United States. Of those, 3 million people are injured.

Car Crash Cases

Getting into a car accident creates enough unneeded stress on you. Arguing with insurance companies, trying to go on with your life, and dealing with the costs of repairing your car are tough. As a car accident victim, you should not have to deal with costly medical bills, the inability to pay for them, and personal injuries that prevent you from going to work.

Hiring a personal injury attorney will allow you to fight back and use the law to protect you.

With years of experience handling all sorts of traffic-related matters, our Law Firm brings tremendous knowledge and skill to the table whenever handling a car crash case.

How Do I Win My Car Accident Case?
Whenever you sue a motorist who injured you in a car accident, you need to prove that he acted negligently and was at fault. Remember, if you were not physically injured in the accident, you will have difficulty winning a personal injury lawsuit.

To win your car accident case, you need to prove that the party you are suing owed you a duty that he breached and, in doing so, caused you to suffer personal injuries (i.e., damages).

Proving Negligence

As a general rule, we all owe one another a duty of reasonable care under the circumstances. This means that if someone acts unreasonably toward you, that person breached his duty. For example, if he was swerving all over the road and not paying attention, he was driving unreasonably. As such, he breached the duty of care he owed you and other fellow drivers. If his actions caused an accident that resulted in you suffering a physical injury, you could sue him for negligence.

Recovering Your Loses
If your injury lawyer can convince a jury that the driver was negligent, you can recover money to compensate you for your:

medical bills
pain and suffering
lost wages
physical disfigurement
emotional trauma

Many think initiating a car accident lawsuit takes too long and is not worth the time or effort. However, this is simply untrue.
