Car Accidents

 

If you have been injured in a car accident due to the fault of someone else, our firm can help you obtain payment for medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Attorneys in our firm have been representing injured individuals for more than 30 years.

 

If the insurance available to the person who caused your injury is not enough to cover your losses and expenses, we will look to other sources to obtain full recovery for you, including:

 

UM/UIM/Dram Shop

Uninsured Motorist Claim

 

Your insurance company pays when the other driver doesn't have any auto insurance. Uninsured coverage pays for many of the things that the other driver's insurance would have paid if it existed.


Underinsured Motorist Claim

 

Underinsured motorist coverage is not the same as uninsured motorist coverage. Underinsured applies when the person who caused your car accident has insurance but the policy limits are not high enough to fully compensate you for your losses.

            An example: The driver who caused the car accident has insurance that pays only $20,000.00 for each person injured in a car accident and your losses are worth $100,000.00. If you have underinsured coverage, you will be able to collect the driver's policy of $20,000.00 and then look to your underinsured coverage for the remainder of your damages. 

If in a car accident, you may be entitled to recover the following:

            -medical bills and lost wages
            -pain, suffering and disfigurement
            -emotional distress
            -loss of future earning capacity


Dram Shop Claim/Drunk Drivers

Represents one component of a car accident caused by a drunk driver. For example, if you were injured by a drunk driver to whom a bar sold alcohol when he or she was obviously intoxicated, your dram shop claim would be against the bar.
