Motor Vehicle Collisions

Every year millions of people are injured in motor vehicle accidents – many very seriously. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, every 10 seconds someone in the United States is involved in a car accident. In 2009, there were an estimated 5,505,000 police-reported traffic crashes, in which 33,308 people were killed and 2,217,000 were injured.

Motor vehicle collisions cause the loss of health, time, finances and even lives. Accidents often occur because of either driver error, negligence, manufacturing defects and/or dangerous weather. No matter what the specific cause or result, a crash can turn a normal day into a prolonged struggle. Speaking with a lawyer can help you sort out rights, your options and your future.

Its Important To Seek Help

Most of the expenses associated with a motor vehicle collision aren’t medical—meaning your health insurance won’t cover them. Even if your health insurance covers your health expenses immediately after the accident, what if you require long-term care? What if you need ongoing treatment for pain relief or to maintain mobility? Who will pay for groceries or your mortgage while you’re unable to work?

Motor vehicle collisions impact people’s lives in ways that nobody would be able to predict. Our experience has taught us that you’ll need at a minimum financial support to survive while you recover. Without that support you may be forced back into work too soon and will only extend your recovery process. That’s why we fight for you and hold the insurance company responsible and work to get you paid.
