According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 2.5 million Americans are injured or killed in motor vehicle accidents every year. These accidents may include any kind of vehicle and can result from any number of causes. These include careless or reckless drivers, someone driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or possibly trucking company negligence. Sometimes a safety defect in the design of an automobile or another vehicle is to blame. Regardless, if negligence of any kind contributed to your car accident injuries, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills and other expenses.

The aftermath of any kind of crash is stressful, confusing, and often painful, especially if you or a loved one sustained serious injuries. However, you do not have to face persistent insurance companies and/or a personal injury lawsuit alone. The personal injury attorneys from Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C. can stand up for your rights while you recover. We have a history of success with cases involving motor vehicle accidents. For example, we won a $10.5 million verdict for a woman who was “buried alive” when her vehicle collided with a dump truck filled with sand. We also obtained a settlement of $10 million on behalf of a high school student who suffered severe and permanent spinal cord injury in a rollover accident.

Do I Need an Attorney After a Traffic Collision?

After a motor vehicle accident, it is likely that you will file a claim with an insurance company. Depending on the vehicles involved, this may be the at-fault driver’s insurance provider or a trucking company’s insurance. You may even file an uninsured or underinsured motorist claim (UM/UIM) with your own provider. An insurance claim should provide you with compensation for medical bills, wage loss, and other damages.

However, the reality is, insurance companies do not prosper by freely paying claims, but by limiting and denying them. In order to ensure you are getting the full amount you deserve, it is important to have an experienced auto accident attorney protecting your rights. A lawyer’s advice can be extremely helpful, even for claims involving the most seemingly straightforward auto accidents. A qualified attorney, like those at our law firm, will have the legal knowledge and experience necessary to ensure you get a fair offer.

Sometimes, even after negotiations, the insurance company may refuse to make you a reasonable offer. In this case, your auto accident attorney can help you file a personal injury lawsuit instead. Above all, an auto accident attorney is on your side and will have your best interests at heart. If a personal injury lawsuit is best for your case, your lawyer will tell you and will help you fight for your rights in court.
