Car accidents cause serious damage. Victims can suffer both personal injury and damage to their personal property. The party who caused the accident is responsible for repayment of expenses associated with the accident, and maximizing recovery ensures victims are not left holding the bag for any of the costs. Most cases follow a similar pattern, whereby the injured person makes a demand for compensation from the insurance company of the negligent party. This can lead to extensive negotiations, all the while costs and stress levels are increasing. We know how disruptive it is to your daily routine to have to deal with an insurance adjuster, which is why we are here to take on those tasks for you and get you all you deserve.
Maximizing recovery for car accidents involves taking several steps, some of which include:
- Investigating the accident scene.
- Reviewing medical records and bills.
- Itemizing property damage.
- Establishing liability.
- Negotiating for maximum recovery, or filing a lawsuit when reasonable offers are not made.
- Seeking punitive damages when appropriate.
If you do have to file a personal injury lawsuit, you only have 2 years from the accident to do so. Our approach is to minimize the costs of your case while getting you all you need to be made whole again. In every type of case we seek damages that cover your lost wages, loss of future earnings, the costs of medical care both present and long term, and the cost to repair or replace your property. If the facts reveal you are entitled to punitive damages, we pursue those as well. Punitive damages are meant to deter future conduct that is similar to the conduct that caused your accident, and many victims find satisfaction in knowing the driver is being “punished” so others are kept safe in the future. We handle personal injury cases of all types, and work with our clients to obtain exceptional results.
