We Handle Claims After a Crash
When drivers are careless or reckless, they don’t affect just their own lives, but they affect many others on the road as well. Negligent or careless acts often lead to serious and fatal accidents involving:
- “collisions” aren’t the only things that result in injury, but the careless / reckless person (e.g., a motorcyclist or trucker that drives S&A clients off the road) would still be liable.
- Commercial vehicles
- Leisure vehicles such as boats and other watercraft
The damage caused by an automobile accident doesn't just stop with loss of property. You could suffer serious or catastrophic injuries that could force you out of work and cause you to lose income or wages. More importantly, your injuries could result in steep medical bills, long-term medical expenses, and pain and suffering. You may become permanently disabled and need additional benefits that insurance won't cover.
Loss of a loved one is a very real possibility in certain types of accidents, leaving surviving family members to face the burden of paying funeral and burial expenses in addition to dealing with devastating loss and grief.
We Know How to Handle Negligent Acts
Negligence behind the wheel can take many forms, including:
- Talking on a cellphone
- Texting and driving
- "Rubbernecking" near an accident
- Paying more attention to passengers or children in the vehicle than to traffic
- Eating, drinking or putting on makeup
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Speeding through construction zones
- Weaving in and out of traffic without signaling
- Failing to check blind spots before merging into traffic or changing lanes
- Following too closely behind the vehicle ahead.
- Waiting until the last moment to exit a highway or freeway
If negligence was a factor in your accident, we will hold the at-fault driver accountable for his or her actions and will fight to get you the financial compensation you need to cover lost wages, hospital bills, funeral and burial expenses, and pain and suffering.
