Car Accident Injury Cases
Car accident cases may cause huge economic and non-economic loss. The victim in a severe car accident can face damages of $10,000-$500,000+ depending on several factors. If you have a car accident and face the injuries, it is your right to claim from the defendant. These cases are very complicated as several parties are involved in the case. For example, insurance companies, they try their best to save their companies and clients from paying any type of compensation. People that have damages after the accident may choose to hire an attorney and consult with them about the case. Also, you may discuss all types of claims and remedies that you can demand from the court.
Under-insured motorist casesIf the defendant is under-insured motorists, then it can create many problems for you. Insurance companies try their best through their insurance adjuster to sign the settlement at very less amount. When the insurance policy of the defendant is not enough to pay the damages then you have to file the lawsuit in the court. An attorney will help to get the damages and compensation cost from the defendant and insurance company.
Car Accident while working for an employerOften times the defendants are more than one. For example, if you have an accident with the driver or employer then you can file the suit against the driver and employer. This could mean that you have two different lawyers that represent you. The first lawyer will be working on the personal injury side of the lawsuit and the second lawyer will be representing you on a workers compensation case where you may be entitled to medical and wage benefits. In these situations, the attorneys will often work on separate aspects to will help you to defend the case in the court and get your all rights and claims.
