It is a tragic fact that thousands of people are killed and seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents each year in the United States. These accidents often involve a car, but also involve trucks, buses, trains, boats, motorcycles, all-terrain vehicles (ATV’s) bicycles, pedestrians, airplanes and helicopters. In most of these accidents, someone was at fault for causing the accident, and should be held legally accountable for the damages they have caused. Often, the party at fault will have insurance coverage to pay for those damages.
When an accident occurs, it is important to hire a lawyer as soon as possible. You need the advice and protection of an experienced professional when dealing with investigators and insurance companies and in dealing with the maze of codes, statutes, regulations and complicated clauses in insurance policies, along with many other issues associated with all aspects of the case.
