Did you know that every 10 seconds, someone in the United States is seriously injured in a car wreck? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 37,261 people died in auto accidents in 2008. More than 2.49 million others suffered injuries in accidents involving a car, truck, or motorcycle.
Our Civil Justice System requires the person at fault in an accident to help compensate those injured by his conduct. Often, the issue of fault is contested. Likewise, the extent of the damages is subject to dispute. These issues and more must be resolved if an injured person is to be justly compensated.
In our experience, people injured in such wrecks often wait too long to seek the aid of counsel in their claims. It is critical to contact an attorney directly after an auto accident so that he can preserve the evidence, interview witnesses and generally protect your rights. He should speak to your insurance company on your behalf and inform you of your rights to receive a fair recovery for your damages. If you were injured in an auto accident, you should seriously consider contacting a lawyer immediately.
At Palmintier Law we have extensive experience in handling auto cases, having represented thousands of injured people and aggressively pursued such claims for decades.
