How Our Automobile Accident Attorneys May Be Able To Help
There are a variety of ways we can help you if you’ve been involved in a car accident that will help you with a lawsuit.
Collect Evidence: First, your lawyer will evaluate the strength of your potential suit by gathering and reviewing all available evidence. In gathering evidence, your attorney may interview witnesses, take photographs of the accident scene, and review any video surveillance footage that is available. Additionally, your attorney will obtain and review any police reports filed after the accident. In cases involving accidents caused by texting while driving, your attorneys can subpoena mobile phone records to confirm the other driver was using a mobile device while behind the wheel of a car.
Work with Medical Experts: In car accident lawsuits, our attorneys often work with medical experts to evaluate the extent of a victim’s injuries and prepare a report detailing the medical treatments – and related costs – that may be needed for the client to fully recover. The medical expert may explain to a judge and jury specifically how the car accident caused your injuries.
Communicate and Negotiate with Insurance Companies: Insurance companies might try to persuade car accident victims into accepting “low-ball” settlements. Our attorneys have years of experience dealing with car insurance companies and know the tactics they use to try to minimize their liability. Your lawyer can take a look at any settlement offers and help you determine if you are being provided with compensation commensurate to the injuries you’ve suffered.
Prepare for Trial: If the negotiations in your case do not produce an acceptable settlement, your attorney will prepare for trial. During the trial, your attorney will make opening and closing statements, question witnesses, and cross-examine any witnesses that are offered by the defendant. Our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan have a reputation for being aggressive trial lawyers and are not afraid to go to court to get their clients the compensation they deserve.
What Kind of Compensation You Can Get
The amount of money you receive will depend on several factors, such as the degree of your injuries and whether the accident caused you to miss work. By filing a lawsuit, our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan may be able to help you recover damages for medical bills, lost income, physical pain and emotional suffering, and even punitive damages – in cases where the other driver’s conduct was egregiously unsafe and dangerous.
