Our Attorneys Know How to Deal With Insurance Companies and Large Corporations
One of the most stressful times following a car accident injury is dealing with the insurance company. Most insurance companies will deny liability even when it is obvious. Our attorneys’ years of experience handling successful auto injury claims will ensure you will not have to face an insurance company or large corporation alone.
Insurance companies do not want lawyers involved because that usually means they will be required to pay higher settlements. They are also aware which attorneys will actually take a claim to trial - as our attorneys do! This provides more assurance that you will not be taken advantage of and you will get the compensation you fairly deserve.
Case Example #1: Dangerous Roadway Condition
Verdict at Trial: $2,700,000.00
Our client, a woman in her mid-thirties, was permanently injured when her car hit a dead horse left lying in a road on a dark and stormy night in Jefferson County. The defendant driver, an employee of a utility company, previously hit the horse and then knowingly left it in the road for the next driver to encounter.
Case Example #2: Negligent Tire Service and Failure to Move Vehicle
Our clients, a husband and wife in their late sixties, were injured after a wheel came off of a driver’s pickup truck, after it had been negligently installed by a national tire company. The driver of the truck failed to remove his truck from the roadway or to turn on his hazard light. Our client, the following driver, had no notice that the truck was not moving with the speed of traffic and hit the back of the truck at nearly 70 mph. Substantial and lift-threatening injuries resulted from this crash, leaving permanent injuries requiring future surgery.
