Being injured in an accident is a terrifying experience. This is especially true when the accident results in medical bills, pain and suffering and/or lost wages.
At Jones Gaglio & Dennis, P.A., our experienced accident attorneys will help you navigate the process of putting your life back to together. If your accident was caused by the negligence of another party, you have the right to seek compensation. Our experienced accident attorneys can handle the legal process so that you can focus on recovering.
While we represent clients in all types of personal injury claims the majority are automobile accidents. Thankfully most car accidents are minor fender benders, but some are serious enough to cause catastrophic injury and even death. If you or a loved one have been injured in a car accident caused by another driver's recklessness or negligence seek consultation from an attorney to make sure you are justly compensated.
Liability in Motor Vehicle Accidents
In some accidents, liability is fairly easy to determine. For example, drunk drivers are almost always at fault and liable for the accidents they are involved in. Similarly, if you have been rear-ended, the car that ran into you is usually considered the liable party. But not all cases are so easy to determine fault and can be more complex and difficult to prove.
What to Do If You Are In A Car Accident
If you have been involved in a serious car accident, it is important to gather as much information as you can. Always collect contact information from the parties involved, including:
If you are unable to take pictures of the accident yourself, have a friend or family member do so for you. Pictures really are worth "a thousand words" in an auto accident case. Be sure to include photos of the damage to your vehicle from multiple angles, any visible injuries, tire marks, road conditions, and more.
Why It Is Vital To Contact an Attorney
If you have been in a car accident you may think that you can handle it yourself. Perhaps the accident was a “minor” one or one that liability seems concrete. The problem facing a person in an accident is that the insurance companies, even your own, are not concerned with getting you just compensation, but rather how to pay out the smallest amount possible. Often times a person may not feel the consequences of being in an accident for days or weeks afterwards. Without representation you may unknowingly waive your right to compensation when the insurance companies try to get you to settle quickly.
