Columbia Car Accident Attorney

Maximizing Your Car Accident Settlement in Columbia

Nearly anyone will be involved in a car accident at some point in life, but most people escape the collision without suffering serious injuries of any kind. If, however, you have suffered broken bones, soft tissue injuries, lacerations, a traumatic brain injury or a spinal cord injury, or have lost a loved one, it is important for you to raise the question of who is at fault for causing the crash. If the other driver is responsible, you have a right to file a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

The one thing you should not do is attempt to settle your claim by working directly with the insurance company. Their primary concern is to avoid paying you anything more than necessary, and you could easily be misled in to making statements that would minimize the value of your settlement. You can greatly improve your chances of recovering a fair amount by retaining experienced legal representation. We believe that you should be compensated for your losses, and should not be forced to pay the price for another driver's mistakes.

Our Columbia personal injury lawyer will treat your case as our own and will fight aggressively to defend your rights in the situation.

Recovering Compensation for Car Accident Injuries in Columbia

Claiming monetary damages for the injuries you suffered in your collision depends on proving that the other driver's negligent or reckless behavior caused the accident. Common examples of actions which serve to establish fault include speeding, unsafe lane changes and tailgating, as well as distracted behaviors such as texting while driving and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Using the evidence we gather to demonstrate the other driver's liability for the accident, we will attempt to secure a settlement out of court, but we will prepare the case for trial if the insurance company refuses to deal fairly with you.
