Car accidents can cause significant and life altering injuries to you and your passengers in addition to the physical damage to your car. Accident claims are often first negotiated with insurance companies who want to pay as little as possible on any claim. An experienced car accident lawyer has the knowledge and skill to properly evaluate all aspects of your claim and set out a path for recovery on your claim. This may result in negotiated settlement with the insurance company or may require filing suit and going to trial. Car accidents may be between two passenger cars, commercial vehicles, motorcycles and other street vehicles.
