If you have ever been involved in an automobile collision, you already know the impact it can have on your life. Jeffrey Stern, Esquire works hard to protect the legal rights of clients injured in auto accidents.
Every day, Stern Law considers and weighs many complicated legal issues. It is vital to hire an attorney who can tackle these issues, fight hard for your rights and protect your interests.
The insurance company for the responsible party will start an investigation immediately. It is the insurance company’s responsibility to try to limit the recovery of the injured person to the lowest possible amount. Consequently, insurance companies have elaborate procedures for handling auto claims, especially in the early stages of the claim. During this time the insurance company will take recorded statements from the people involved, examine the vehicles, take photographs, obtain the police report, and try to establish the extent of the injuries. The insurance company will usually accomplish these tasks within the first week after the auto collision, and many of them will do it within the first 24 to 48 hours.
Since insurance companies have vast experience in evaluating claims and will seek to obtain the lowest settlement possible, it is important to engage a firm with considerable experience dealing with insurance companies. It is best to retain a firm that regularly handles personal injury claims so that a lawsuit can be pursued if the insurance company is unwilling to settle your claim for a fair value.
Several factors are evaluated when determining negligence in a car accident. Speeding, driver fatigue, weather conditions, driver distraction and intoxication caused by drugs or alcohol, are just a few examples. In recent years, text messaging and the use of cell phones while driving have greatly increased the danger on our roads and highways. Numerous contributing factors can make an automobile injury claim complicated.
Stern Law deals routinely with all types of client injuries, such as broken bones, herniated discs, the psychological impact of scarring and the importance of scar revision, head and closed head injuries, back injuries, to name a few. Yet, there is no doubt that even “soft tissue injuries,” such as a simple muscle tear, bulging discs or pinched nerves can be very serious, time consuming to treat and debilitating. In many instances, there are relapses or even pain and difficulties from these injuries that can last a lifetime.
