Auto Accidents

Car wrecks happen every day, but that doesn’t make them any less impactful to the people involved — or their families, for that matter. When you are involved in an accident that was caused by someone else, you should seek counsel from an experienced personal injury attorney. Depending on the circumstances of your accident, you may be able to collect compensation from the other driver’s insurance company. And with a seasoned attorney batting for you, you are much more likely to get a fair settlement offer.

Attorney Kyle Jarzmik is willing and able to represent you in negotiations with the insurance company, whether your accident involved a car, truck, semi, motorcycle, or other vehicle. Even better — if the insurance company is not offering you a fair payout, he can take your case to trial in order to push for an amount that better accounts for your needs after your accident.

What You Need to Know About Auto Accident Cases

Auto collisions are usually caused by the negligence of other drivers. Sometimes these are everyday drivers who simply aren’t paying attention. At other times, they are professional semi-truck or tractor-trailer drivers who are driving tired because they don’t want to miss their delivery deadlines. There are, of course, a number of other reasons a person may cause a car accident, such as:

  • Fatigue
  • Failure to obey traffic signs or laws
  • Distracted driving
  • Texting or operating a cell phone while driving
  • Aggressive driving
  • Impaired driving (alcohol or other drugs)

In a personal injury claim, the insurance company takes the injuries sustained into consideration when determining their initial settlement offer. Some of the most common injuries after a collision include:

  • Paralysis
  • Broken bones
  • Nerve damage
  • Concussions and brain trauma
  • Internal organ injuries
  • Psychological trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Back Injuries
  • Whiplash
  • Limb injuries, including arms, knees, and ankles

Other factors must also be considered when determining the amount of compensation a car accident victim should receive. Among these factors are:

  • Medical bills
  • Physical therapy or rehabilitation
  • Chiropractic care
  • Lost wages
  • Pain & suffering, which can include inability to perform daily or leisure tasks

Don’t face the insurance company alone, and don’t take a settlement offer without first consulting with a knowledgeable legal professional. Instead, put a skilled and experienced injury attorney in your corner to ensure that all of your needs are being accounted for.
