Taking the right steps after a car accident
If you were involved in a car accident, your actions leading up to the crash will come under scrutiny. Your actions after the incident are just as critical.
It is best to contact an auto accident lawyer before you contact your insurance agent or make statements to the police.
Even if the other driver was clearly at fault, your statements to an insurance adjuster could be used to limit your compensation.
Our car accident attorneys will determine the actual cause of the car accident, such as distracted driving, drunk driving or speeding.
Getting help from an experienced attorney after an auto accident
It is essential that you hire a skilled injury attorney to avoid dealing with insurance companies on your own. Our firm gets investigators to the crash scene to interview witnesses and preserve important evidence.
Additionally, we make sure clients get the proper medical attention. Your injuries may be more serious than you thought. We work closely with the family and consult medical experts, vocational specialists, accident reconstruction experts, and economists to prove negligence and help you recover damages.
Assisting families after a fatal auto accident
West Virginia has a higher rate of fatalities from auto accidents than the national average. After a fatal accident, a representative of the deceased’s estate can bring a wrongful death lawsuit.
These suits often result in compensation for a victim’s spouse, children, and other family members. Damages may be recovered for sorrow, anguish, and loss of companionship.
Additionally, the estate can recover medical costs and funeral expenses from a negligent party. Lost wages may also be awarded. In these tragic cases, it is important to hire a firm with experience.
Firm partner Brian Prim is a hardworking injury lawyer representing hardworking people. He leads a team that has experience recovering damages for fatal wrecks and catastrophic crashes, such as tractor-trailer and motorcycle accidents that result in brain injury, loss of limb or spinal cord injury.
