When you go to battle, you need equal force to prevail against your opponent. If you get in a terrible vehicle accident, make no mistake that you're going to war with the other driver's insurance company. The only way to fight their fire with your own fire is to retain the best legal representation available.
Vehicular accidents with horrible injuries are so common that you can find an auto accident attorney, an 18 wheeler accident attorney, a brain injury attorney, a distracted driver attorney, a personal injury attorney, or a DWI attorney. These attorneys have tried many similar cases before. They know the best way to prosecute these particular claims.
You may find a lawyer who handles all vehicular injury cases. They may not specialize in one type of case, but they have broader experience with this class of suits. Sometimes they are part of a law office and may be the attorney on staff who handles your particular type of vehicular injury claim.
A settlement for a wrongful death suit is easier to reach than a settlement for a disfiguring or life-altering injury. Once the victim has died, their daily needs end, therefore a lump sum is granted. This is not so simple with an accident involving the loss of a leg or arm. Nor is it as easy to reach a settlement on a vehicular accident that resulted in paralysis, leaving the victim paraplegic or quadriplegic.
After the accident, the victim needs to eat and have injuries treated. Physical rehabilitation costs quite a bit and wheelchairs aren't free. Prescription fees mount up as the operations and examinations continue. Alterations to the home, like ramps and modified stairways, are expensive. The sticker price of a wheelchair-accessible van is sky-high.
Neither big rig drivers nor teenagers are allowed to text while driving. The reaction time of a distracted driver is as slow as for a drunk driver. Even a seemingly light hit from behind can cause whiplash resulting in brain injury that may manifest itself slowly, worsening through the years.
When the stakes are this high, anybody involved in an injury accident needs to find the best representation available. Usually you can find a personal injury attorney who will take your case with no up-front cash from you. When they win, they take their pay from your settlement.
Injury accident cases frequently end with a structured settlement that lasts for the rest of the victim's life. A wise personal injury attorney knows to keep the settlement payments proportionate with any cost-of-living increases or inflation that may occur subsequently.
If you've been involved in a vehicular injury accident, your health and happiness depend on finding superior legal counsel. You wouldn't take your high-end car to the first mechanic you find. Take your time and research the available representation. The right attorney will obtain the best settlement possible.
