Car Accidents – Personal Injury Law
If you or anyone in your family has been injured in a car accident, including pedestrians or bicyclists hurt in automobile accidents, contact our personal injury law firm. Our attorneys have years of experience and are very familiar with the investigation and proof of liability and damages in personal injury cases and auto accidents resulting in a fatality. We recommend that you are represented by an experienced personal injury lawyer if you have suffered injuries in an auto accident.
What if you and the other driver(s) involved in the auto accident are both partially at fault for causing the accident?
Under law, each driver is responsible for his or her own percentage of fault. For example, if the other driver(s) are 50% at fault and you are 50% at fault, you can recover 50% of your damages against the other driver(s) or their insurance company.
What if the other driver involved in the car accident doesn’t have insurance?
If you have uninsured motorist insurance (UM) coverage on your vehicle, or any relative you live with has UM coverage, you may be able to recover the same damages against your insurance company that you would be able to recover if the other driver had insurance.
What if you are a victim of a hit and run driver, or are hit by an unidentified vehicle while a pedestrian?
UM coverage usually provides for a recovery in these instances as well.
