Types Of Car Accidents
Our Car Accident Lawyers Represent a Variety of Cases
The primary cause of motor vehicle injury accidents is operator negligence. However, other factors can enter into play. If another driver's negligence causes an accident in which you are injured, you deserve financial compensation. Our car accident attorneys fight for your rights.
The lawyers at Smith & Hassler will investigate the actual cause of your crash and determine the parties responsible for the accident. That way, we can pursue compensation you rightfully deserve for your crash.
Types of Auto Accidents
In many cases, automobile accidents are a direct result of the following kinds of car crashes:
- Texting and driving
- Falling asleep at the wheel
- High speed collisions
- Hit and runs
- Rear end crashes
- Seat belt and airbag injuries
- Tractor trailer truck accident
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
When you hire us to handle your case, we carefully review accident reports and medical records, and talk to witnesses. If needed, we bring in accident reconstructions experts. We know where to look for evidence of negligence.
No matter which type of car accident you were involved in, the injuries you suffer can be very serious. You may require surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. In some cases, you may need a home care attendant or home medical equipment. And your injuries may prevent you from returning to work, meaning you are losing income. There are other damages, too. These includes mental anguish and pain and suffering.
The at-fault driver's insurance company may make you an initial settlement offer. But it will likely fall far short of the true value of your claim. We take them to the negotiating table to reach a settlement that works for you. And if they are not willing to be fair, we will take them to court.
