Seeking Compensation After A Crash

When the driver of another vehicle – be it a car, motorcycle, truck or bus – ignores safety and does something reckless or negligent behind the wheel, they are not only putting their own life in danger but the lives of other people as well. Whether they are texting and driving or are under the influence, their actions will likely have a deep impact on the lives of people around them, especially if their actions result in a serious accident.

Whether you’ve suffered a serious injury or something more catastrophic, were left permanently disabled or lost a loved one, you deserve to be compensated for the damages you have suffered and may include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Funeral costs
  • Burial costs
  • Pain and suffering

Comparative Negligence

Seeking compensation after a crash can get complicated and frustrating when comparative negligence is applied. Comparative negligence establishes each driver’s responsibility for the accident or, in other words, what percentage of the accident was the fault of each driver. If a driver files a claim against the other party’s insurance, then the insurance company will use comparative negligence to determine how much should be paid out in damages.

Even though many insurance companies claim to offer fair compensation to victims, our firm knows that this doesn’t always happen. Most insurance companies only see the short-term damages and ignore a victim’s long-term needs. Only a compassionate attorney who has the best interests of their client in mind can recognize the unfairness of an insurance company’s offer and fight for what their client needs and deserves.
