Types of Motor Vehicle Accident Cases We Handle
With more than six decades of experience handling a wide range of accident cases, the Frickey Law Firm has established a hard-earned reputation for excellence in matters of personal injury law. Our skilled lawyers are adept at handling a broad array of motor vehicle accident claims, including:
Potential Damages in a Motor Vehicle Collision Claim
Far too often, insurance companies avoid offering fair settlements even when it is apparent who is at fault for a crash. Insurers may offer you an unreasonably low settlement, delay payment for month or even try to blame you for the wreck.
Insurance companies will do everything they can to protect their own interests, not yours. You need someone in your corner to ensure your rights and your best interests are protected. Our skilled and aggressive motor vehicle accident attorneys are committed to getting you every penny you rightfully deserve.
We Fight While You Heal.
If you have been hurt in a motor vehicle wreck that was someone else's fault, you may be entitled to pursue compensation for:
- Hospital bills
- Medical expenses
- Wrongful Death
- Loss of income
- Pain and suffering
In the most tragic cases, traffic wrecks can be fatal. If you’ve lost a loved one in a motor vehicle crash, you may be able to pursue justice and compensation in a wrongful death claim. During your free initial consultation, our compassionate attorneys will listen to your side of the story and advise you on your rights and next steps.
Fighting for Compensation on Your Behalf
Negligent drivers can cause devastating traffic wrecks. When someone else's recklessness or carelessness is the root cause of your crash, you shouldn’t have to bear the life-changing consequences of your injury alone. You deserve fair compensation.
In order to improve your chances of obtaining the maximum insurance settlement or compensation award, you must choose a skilled and experienced attorney who will serve as your tireless advocate. At the Frickey Law Firm, we know that insurance issues can be incredibly complex. We take the time to make sure you know exactly what is going on in every step of your case. We will do everything possible to keep you informed and make sure that your voice is heard.
Why Would I Need a Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyer?
If you've been involved in an accident, you may not know how to file a claim against the guilty party. A motor vehicle accident lawyer can advocate for you in court and help you receive the compensation you deserve.
How Long Can I Wait to Contact a Motor Vehicle Lawyer?
It’s best to contact a lawyer immediately after the accident, especially if you or any passengers were injured. Since important evidence can be tampered with or lost, it’s important to have a lawyer who can quickly gather evidence and represent you in court.
What Should I Do at the Scene of an Accident?
Above all else, you need to make sure no one, including yourself, needs urgent medical attention. If possible, you need to move to a safe location and call the police. You also need to gather as much information as you can, so take photos of your car, the other person’s car, license plates, and anything else you think is important. You also need to avoid saying anything that might be misconstrued without the police or a lawyer present.
Do I Always Have to Go to Court?
No, not in every case. There are times when your lawyer can represent you. Many accidents can be settled out of court, however, if this isn’t the case, your lawyer can file the claim and present the evidence on your behalf.
How Long Do I Have to File an Accident Claim?
Every state has a different statute of limitation. That’s why it’s essential to file your claim as soon as possible. An experienced motor vehicle lawyer can help you file your claim, negotiate with insurance adjustors, and possibly even settle out of court.
Can I File the Claim on My Own?
You can file the claim on your own, however, it’s usually better to have a qualified lawyer do it for you. Motor vehicle lawyers can meet with insurance adjustors and make sure you receive enough compensation to cover all of the damages, medical bills, and even cover lost wages.
How Do I Choose the Right Lawyer?
Choosing the right lawyer starts with their credentials and certification. Confirm that the lawyer has handled personal law cases and has a proven track record of success. Look online for positive client reviews and testimonials, and even negative ones, if present. Make a list of at least two to three lawyers you want to meet with and also include questions you want answered.
What Kind of Compensation Can I Receive?
After a motor vehicle accident, you may be eligible for multiple types of compensation. In addition to compensation for damage to your vehicle (property damage), you may be eligible for medical compensation, lost wages, and possibly psychological distress.
