Determining Negligence and Pursuing Damages

Car accidents usually involve one negligent driver and an innocent driver who was just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Negligence in driving methods can lead to serious injury of innocent victims. Therefore, the person responsible for causing the car accident is thought to be responsible for the damages as well.

Damages from car accidents are usually claimed through the at-fault driver's insurance company. Unfortunately, the insurance company's motive is far different than the accident victim's needs. Insurance companies seek to increase their revenue by settling for the lowest possible amount with the victim. Insurance adjusters often succeed in getting car accident victims to accept a lowball settlement offer. Without the protection of an experienced accident attorney looking out for your interests, you are likely to be taken advantage of by the insurance company.

Insurance companies care only about their profits; they don't care about injury victims. Insurance adjusters prey on the emotionally traumatized and financially desperate state of injury victims, manipulating them into settling for a less than fair amount. For this reason, it is important that car crash victims retain legal representation before attempting to take on the insurance company. Not only will an experienced personal injury attorney know how to maximize the value of a case, but they will also know the true value of a case, and will demand that the insurance adjuster pays for all of the harm caused by a negligent driver.

There are many cases in which serious injury, such as traumatic brain injury, burn injuries, spinal cord injuries or degloving injuries can result. In such cases, it is vital to the future and health of the victim that they have the financial resources to get the best medical treatment available and have the financial means to pay for future medical treatment as needed.

At McGee, Lerer & Associates, we demand maximum compensation for our clients. From the moment we are hired, we move quickly and aggressively to resolve our clients' claims, and we keep our clients informed about the status of their claims from beginning to end.
