IF YOU HAVE A CRASH AND NEED CASH℠
In a devastating instant, a driver and passengers can become victims of another driver’s negligence in an auto accident.
Seriously injured victims suffer large worrisome medical bills. Since many cannot work they have difficulty supporting their families while recovering.
Victims should be entitled to recover restitution for property damage and loss, lost wages, medical costs, pain and suffering, and mental anguish.
A qualified vehicle accident attorney can protect victims’ rights and help recover fair and complete compensation for physical injuries and damages. Accident attorneys, who know how a crushing impact can harm a human body, recommend a physician examination since unseen or overlooked injuries can later turn into major health challenges.
Insurers want to minimize payouts to accident victims. An experienced accident lawyer, who is well aware of insurance company tactics, can negotiate an optimum settlement outcome. Attorneys usually advise victims to discuss their situations before signing documents or accepting offers.
“The Golden Hour”
Drivers have a Golden Hour after an automobile accident to protect their rights. After an hour, cars may be moved, the driver may not recall important details, and witnesses may depart.
