Each day thousands of people are injured in auto accidents by careless and negligent drivers. The lucky ones suffer only slight injuries while others suffer injuries that change their life forever. The decisions you make and actions you take after being injured in a car accident can affect the quality of your life for years to come. If you don’t properly investigate the accident you could lose crucial evidence that may compromise your case. You may not ensure the identity of the proper defendants. If you don’t know the law, you might miss an important legal deadline such as the Statute of Limitations which may extinguish your right to recover completely.
How an auto accident claim is presented to an insurance company or a jury is very important. Each element of a case must be handled with professional care. Only an experienced personal injury attorney can do this for you. For instance, if you have been injured in an auto accident the law allows you to recover for the following:
- Medical Bills
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Mental Anguish
- Loss of Companionship
- Funeral Expenses
- Long Term care expenses
- Future Medical Bills
- Future Lost Wages
- Lost Profits
Those are just some of the recoverable damages in an auto accident injury case. Some damages require expert testimony. Others require more specific forms of evidence other than expert opinion. At the Kerr Law Firm we have over seventeen years experience representing auto accident victims and know how to present your case to maximize your recovery.
