A car accident is one of the most terrifying situations to go through, and unfortunately, the difficulties do not soon end. Victims must deal with ongoing medical needs, insurance obstacles, financial issues, and in some cases, much more. In many states, limits on the amount of money that can be recovered provide distinct obstacles that only an experienced personal injury attorney can hurdle.
Most people think any attorney can satisfactorily handle their auto accident claim. While many “soft tissue” claims, with clear facts, do not require specialization, in reality, automobile accident cases often involve something less than clear-cut facts. Were there impartial eyewitnesses? Is there physical evidence that can only be evaluated by expert accident reconstruction? Were the injuries complex and significant, requiring retention of experts to analyze future disability and lost income? Were there special vehicles involved which would require an analysis of trucking regulations or regulations that pertain to buses or “common carriers”? Was there a death? If so, other special experts and laws may apply.
In short, there is no such thing as a simple auto accident case. You deserve someone with the training and experience to maximize your financial recovery, no matter the facts and circumstances.
