Why You Need An Attorney After A Serious Car Accident
An insurance company often has conflicting interests. An insurer must protect its bottom line while negotiating to settle accident claims. You need an attorney devoted to representing you and fighting to get what you need during your recovery.

We will make sure you see the proper specialists and receive all available treatments.
Only when we have complete information will our lawyers pursue a settlement that provides compensation for medical bills, lost wages and your pain and suffering.

Why Are Car Accidents So Common?
Motor vehicle accidents are among the leading causes of injury and death nationwide. They are so common that many people take them for granted as simply the cost of convenient travel. Unfortunately, attitudes like this make car accidents seem inevitable and unavoidable when the truth is that most crashes are preventable.
In the vast majority of cases, crashes are the result of negligence or human error. Common causes include:
- Texting and distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Speeding and aggressive driving
- Failure to obey traffic laws, signs and signals
- Driver fatigue or drowsiness
- Failure to adapt to changing road or weather conditions
- Inexperience and inadequate training
Whatever the cause of your accident, our attorneys are ready to investigate the crash and help you hold the at-fault driver accountable.
