Injuries and Liability in Montgomery County Car Accidents

Montgomery County Car AccidentsAccording to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than three million people are injured annually in motor vehicle accidents throughout the U.S. and more than 30,000 people die. Under the law, you and your family may be entitled to compensation benefits from a negligent driver for past and future lost wages, past and future medical expenses and pain and suffering. You may also be entitled to compensation for other damages which could include physical impairment, disfigurement and – if a family member was killed in the wreck – wrongful death damages. If the negligent party involved flees the scene, a lawyer can also help you figure out your options for seeking injury compensations.

When you’re hurt in a car accident, how do you know if you have a successful personal injury case or not? Variables include the number of vehicles involved (and defendants), and how seriously you are injured. The amount an insurance policy protects the negligent driver (or the company that employs them) must be considered: your medical bills, repair or replacement costs, your lost income, and how much you might lose in the future. Accident where a vehicle rolls over can also have devastating impact on someone when it comes to vehicle damage and personal injury.

Insurance Companies in Car Accidents

No two car accidents are alike. There are many different ways a car accident occur, from head-on collisions to rear-end collisions. Depending on your case and how severely you or a family member are injured, auto accidents can involve complex – and often protracted – negotiation and litigation. Trying to handle your own claim almost always produces much lower settlement offers.

Because insurance companies are looking out for their own interests, one of the first calls you get after being hurt in an accident caused by another driver is from their insurance company, usually a claims adjuster. If your injuries and damages aren’t serious – or they don’t believe they are – low settlement offers usually follow. For example, if you got into a car accident in a parking lot, there is a good possibility that the insurance companies involved will try to argue that you were somehow contributorily negligent. That’s because defendant insurance companies are in the business of raking in premiums and paying out as little as possible in claims. Teenage drivers who have just received their license may also see their already high insurance premiums rise.

Every step the insurance adjuster makes is carefully planned to limit and deny benefits that injured car accident victims – and their families – deserve, compensation the law entitles them to receive. And there’s only one way to stop this behavior. Clients thank us when they hire our attorneys because they are no longer bothered by these claims adjusters. Those calls stop because the defendant’s insurance company – including their lawyers – must deal with our law firm.

Wrongful Death Claims from Car Accidents

Vehicle accidents are the leading cause of accidental deaths in the U.S. And since wrongful death claims are usually much higher than average, insurance companies fight especially hard to deny them or offer the least amount of compensation they can. The carrier will appear to be sensitive to the grieving family’s needs. But they will not forget their own interests. A Montgomery County car accident attorney can help you establish the cause behind the accident and hold the other party responsible for any pain and suffering you have experienced due to their negligence.

Damages from wrongful death can include pain and suffering (for both the victim and surviving family members), property damage, loss of consortium, funeral and medical expenses and even possible punitive damages. Our car accident attorneys in MoCo find it very satisfying to not only protect these vulnerable people from the insurance carriers, but help grieving families recover from such tragedies.
