Handling a Personal Injury Case
Proving liability means proving responsibility for an accident, which means a big part of any personal injury claim is the investigation. A lawyer’s assistance could prove essential here, as there can be a lot to sort through, including eyewitness statements, police reports, photographs, videos, and medical reports. A seasoned Middletown personal injury attorney has experience handling a variety of auto-related accident claims for people throughout the community and knows what to look for in putting together a strong case. Some of the claims we regularly handle include:
- Boat wrecks
- Motorcycle accidents
- Commercial vehicle wrecks
- Pedestrian and bicycle accidents
- Rear-end, head-on, rollover, and t-bone collisions
- Bus, Lyft, Uber, and other common carrier accidents
Our team could take an injured motorist’s case to court and argue it through any appeals, if necessary. However, many claims settle out of court, through negotiation with insurance companies.
Negotiating With Insurance Companies
Insurance companies are businesses that need to protect their bottom lines. This means insurance representatives often have tactics they use – such as lowball settlement offers and trapping plaintiffs into statements against interest – to reduce their company’s liability in a case. Our attorneys are familiar with these tactics and could use our knowledge and experience to help injured motorists avoid missing out on the compensation they need and deserve.
Damages Available to Car Crash Victims
The exact range of damages available to an injured person depends on the details of a claim including the extent and severity of injuries and whether the injured motorist shares a portion of blame for the event. In general, damages could be sought for both the economic and non-economic losses a person experiences due to the wreck. Economic losses often include property damage, past and future medical bills, and lost wages from missing work. Non-economic losses are more subjective and commonly include emotional distress, disfigurement, pain and suffering, and lost enjoyment of life. A dedicated personal injury lawyer in Middletown could advise a person of the full range of damages available to them after investigating their case and associated documentation.
