An auto accident is a frightening and deadly experience. Sadly, many of these car accidents are due to the reckless, careless or negligent driving of another, whether they are driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, speeding, talking on mobile phones, texting or any other negligent behavior. The injuries sustained in these accidents can be life-threatening, and in the most tragic cases, fatal. Auto accidents are the second most common cause of death in the country. If you or a loved one has been injured in such an accident, it is crucial that you contact our office at once to assist you in getting the compensation that is fair after suffering an injury.
The insurance company of the responsible driver will be required to pay for the medical costs, rehabilitation, lost wages, property damages, pain and suffering and other damages that occurred as the result of their insured motorists dangerous or negligent driving so we can help with all of this with our car accident claims. When the case involves drunk driving, this is considered to be extreme negligence. Punitive damages are likely possible in such cases and will be aggressively sought by our offices. It is important that you do not discuss the injuries, provide your medical records or have conversations with the insurance company without first enlisting the assistance of our offices. Many insurance companies take great efforts to reduce claims; this can only be expected when dealing with a profit-oriented corporation. When you are in pain, or possibly on pain medication, or extremely upset after an accident, the statements that you make can later be used to reduce your claim. Before engaging in such discussions, contact this firm and Mr. Goodman will assist you to ensure that you are not taken advantage of by the insurance company.
