Car accidents are far too common. The average person will be in 2-4 crashes in their lifetime. While some collisions are minor, others result in serious and catastrophic injuries, or even death. For survivors of crashes, the legal system provides a way to recover compensation above and beyond what insurance coverage offers (such as pain and suffering or punitive damages). In some states, you might be eligible for damages even if you were partially at fault for the accident. Car crash laws and deadlines vary from state to state, however, which is why it’s important you consult with a qualified attorney near you as soon as possible. Your lawyer can help determine liability for the crash, calculate your damages, negotiate with insurers and represent you in court, if it comes to that.
