Thousands of car accidents happen every single day and while some cause minor damage to the vehicles involved, others cause serious damage to the drivers and passengers that are inside. It’s easy to feel confident that if a car accident occurs the insurance companies of those involved will pay for any medical expenses, but may negligent drivers only carry the minimum amount required by law for medical coverage which typically only pays for a fraction of medical bills. Once the policy limit has been reached, the insurance company will send a letter informing the patient that they are now on their own.
Given this, it’s hardly surprising that many car accident victims choose to turn to a lawyer for help. By working with an experienced car accident attorney, plaintiffs can file a lawsuit which may provide them with compensation that will not only cover their past losses but also their expected future losses.

During this process, we also review the case to determine if a third-party’s negligence resulted in the accident to see if our client is eligible to file a construction accident lawsuit.
Workers’ comp may provide the accident victim with compensation for their medical bills and even a small fraction of their lost wages, but that is all. A lawsuit can provide compensation for all loses.
In some of the worst cases, the accident claims the life of the victim, leaving their loved ones to mourn and figure out how to survive financially. What many don’t know is that they can choose to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit, which is essentially the lawsuit that would have been filed by the deceased if they had lived.
