A car accident can leave you with a life-changing injury and mountains

Car crash victims have to deal with paying medical bills if they are hospitalized
or require extended care, like physical therapy. In addition, some victims
must take time off from work during their recovery, which affects a family’s
earning power. All, however, must deal with insurance companies that may
attempt to limit their liability by offering a quick and easy settlement.

Car Accident Victims Have Rights
If negligence caused a car accident that injured you, you have a right
to pursue compensation against the at-fault party (or parties). That said,
you must prove that negligence was involved to be compensated.
Common examples of negligence in car crashes include:
- Driving while distracted, such as texting and driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or recreational, prescription, or
- Driving aggressively (e.g. road rage)
- Driving recklessly
- Failing to yield or signal
- Executing dangerous lane changes
- Operating a vehicle in poor maintenance
- Fatigued driving
If one or more of these types of negligence was a factor in the accident
that injured you, you likely have grounds for a case.
When to Get an Attorney for a Car Accident
We recommend that car accident victims consult with an attorney
before they speak to insurance companies.
Insurance agents are trained to reduce the value of a claim from the very
moment a policyholder reports an accident. They may act overly friendly
or claim that something is “the standard” to trick policyholders
into giving them more information than needed. For instance, many insurance
companies have their agents collect recorded statements from policyholders.
While you may be required cooperate with your own insurance company, it
is best to speak with an experienced attorney before agreeing to a recorded
