MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS
Car | Truck | Motorcycle
Motor vehicle accidents (car/truck/motorcycle/pedestrian) are a type of “PERSONAL INJURY” claim and require that you prove the accident and resulting injuries are due to the “NEGLIGENCE” of another. At our initial consultation, we will discuss how this part of the legal system works, we will answer all of your questions, and we will develop a plan together on how to navigate this system to achieve your goals. We will be available every step of the way to help you achieve a successful resolution, whether that be a settlement or a Court Award.
“LEGAL NEGLIGENCE” is more than the common definition of carelessness; LEGAL NEGLIGENCE has a specific legal definition made up of a few elements that must be met to have a legal claim. There is an additional requirement to claim future damages with MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS, that one has sustained a “permanent impairment“ due to the accident.
The focus and purpose of MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT law is to make a person whole, from the damages incurred, as best money can do that. Based upon the facts of each case, damages could include loss of earnings/wages/benefits, medical expenses, pain and suffering damages, and loss of enjoyment of life damages, etc.
We work on MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT CASES on a “contingency basis” which means first, we win for you by obtaining a settlement or a favorable Court Award. Then we are paid a fixed percentage as the attorney fee based upon the size of the settlement or Court Award. So we are only paid if we win.
