How to Find the Best Car Accident Lawyers
One thing to bear in mind is that you want an attorney who only handles car accidents rather than a general personal injury lawyer who might also deal with other cases. A specialized car accident lawyer will know the applicable laws in your state and have experience with handling cases like yours. They will also work with professional car accident investigators and expert witnesses who can testify on your behalf in court. There are several ways to look for the best attorneys for car collisions, including:
Ask friends, family members, and work colleagues for attorney referrals. While you should not rely on referrals alone, someone you know may have experienced a car accident and could recommend an excellent attorney.
Finding the names of car accident attorneys can be as easy as googling “car accident lawyer near me.” Additionally, internet sites such as Avvo and Martindale Hubbell offer a way to connect with local lawyers depending on your type of case and location. You could also search for a lawyer on your state bar association website.

Car Accident Injuries That Could Qualify for Compensation
Serious car accidents can cause a variety of devastating and permanent injuries. Some of the more common injuries in car crashes include:
- Spinal cord damage and paralysis
- Head injuries such as traumatic brain injury (TBI)
- Soft-tissue injuries involving tendons and muscles
- Bone fractures
- Amputated limbs
- Internal organ damage and bleeding
While a serious injury can undoubtedly change a life forever, even a minor injury such as whiplash or a concussion could cause considerable medical costs and lost wages. However, if another party is responsible for your accident, you deserve to be made “whole” again and should receive compensation for your losses and injuries.
Compensation for Victims
A great car accident attorney can help you recover compensation for your injuries and losses if you are not at fault for the accident. You could qualify for the following damages and others:
- Hospital stays, surgeries, and other healthcare expenses
- Future estimated medical costs
- Loss of wages and loss of future earning capacity
- Modification of your vehicle and home
- A home nurse or household help
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Permanent disability
- Scarring and disfigurement
If you want to discover the potential value of your case, our car accident lawyers can discuss your case and damages and provide you with a rough estimate.
Legal Claims for Car Accident Deaths
Despite a significant drop in miles driven in 2020 as a result of the pandemic, the country saw the largest number of fatal car accidents since 2007, according to the National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA). Estimates from the NHTSA show that almost 40,000 individuals died in car accidents in 2021. According to the agency, some of the behavior contributing to the increase in fatalities included speeding and impaired driving.
If your loved one died in a car accident with a drunk, speeding, or otherwise reckless car driver, you could file a wrongful death lawsuit and pursue compensation. Damages can include burial expenses, medical costs, loss of income from the decedent, and others. An attorney at Morgan & Morgan can walk you through your options and help fight for your due.
