    When Should I Hire a Car accident attorney?

    car accident lawyers

    If you were involved in an auto accident that was not your fault and you suffered injuries, vehicle damage, and other losses, speaking with an auto accident lawyer can help you understand your rights and legal options.

     

    You should contact an accident attorney if:

    • Your loved one was killed or seriously injured in an auto accident
    • You were injured or sustained property damage in an auto accident
    • The claims adjuster is refusing to offer a fair settlement
    • There is more than one liable party involved
    • It’s unclear which party was negligent

    Working with a lawyer from MVP Accident Attorneys can help make the entire legal process as low-stress as possible and will also level the playing field, giving your case the best chance of success.

    Not only can our legal team help with filing all of the appropriate paperwork and dealing with the insurance company, but they can also:

    Investigate the Car crash

    A car accident lawyer can investigate the accident to determine who was at fault, gather evidence, and interview witnesses. Eyewitnesses can provide valuable information about the accident, including how it occurred, who was at fault, and what factors contributed to the accident

    Our attorneys will gather important evidence, such as:

    • Police report
    • Photos of skid marks and any debris on the road
    • Vehicle damage estimates and photos of damage
    • Medical records that detail the injuries sustained and photos of your injuries
    • Expert testimony from medical professionals and accident reconstructionists

    Value Your Claim

    An auto accident lawyer from our legal team can calculate the full extent of your damages, including medical bills, lost wages, property damage, and pain and suffering. If you suffered a permanent injury due to the accident, our attorneys can also work with medical professionals to determine the true cost of your ongoing medical needs to ensure you are taken care of now and in the future.

    Insurance company Negotiations

    Insurance companies may try to offer a low settlement or deny your claim altogether. A car accident lawyer on our legal team can negotiate with the insurance company to ensure you receive a fair settlement that covers all of your damages. Our accident attorneys have extensive experience dealing with claims adjusters and know the tricks and tactics they will try to use to deny your claim or offer a lower settlement.

    File a Personal injury lawsuit

    If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, a car accident attorney can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf and represent you in court.

    Provide Legal Guidance

    If the insurance company refuses to offer a fair settlement, a car accident attorney can file a personal injury lawsuit on your behalf and represent you in court.

    Our attorneys can also provide you with strong, experienced legal guidance and support throughout the entire process, ensuring that you understand your rights and options. They can also answer any questions you may have and explain what to expect during the legal process.

    Auto accident claims can quickly become complicated, especially if it’s not clear which party was negligent, the other driver’s insurance company is refusing to offer a settlement that’s fair, or if more than one party is liable for the collision.

    Working with one of our attorneys can significantly increase your chances of recovering compensation for your injuries and other damages. At MVP Accident Attorneys, we can handle every aspect of your case, from investigating the motor vehicle collision to negotiating with insurance companies and filing a lawsuit if necessary.

    What Should I Do Immediately After a Car crash?

    Knowing what steps you must take following a vehicle collision can protect your health and your claim. If you find yourself involved in an automobile accident, following a car crash, you should

    • Check yourself and others for injuries and call 911 if there is a casualty, someone sustained injuries, or if there is significant property damage.
    • Move to a safe location, if possible, and turn on your hazard lights.
    • Exchange information with the other motorist  involved in the collision, including names, phone numbers, addresses, license plate numbers, vehicle identification numbers, and insurance information.
    • Take photos of the crash scene, damage to vehicles, and any personal injuries sustained.
    • Gather contact information from any witnesses to the accident.
    • Notify your insurance company about the accident and provide them with the necessary information.
    • Seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you don't think you were seriously injured.
    • Consult with an experienced car accident lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys to protect your claim and learn about your legal rights and options.

     

    What Is a Fair Settlement for a Car Accident?

    The compensation you’re entitled to will depend on the specifics of your auto accident, the severity of your injuries, property damage, how much time you missed at work, and other factors.

    Economic damages are tangible losses that can be measured in financial terms. They include:

    • Past and future medical bills

    • Loss of quality of life
    • Loss of enjoyment of life
    • Scarring and disfigurement

    Car accidents can result in a wide range of injuries, from minor cuts and bruises to severe, life-altering injuries. If you are involved in a traffic accident, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you do not feel any pain or display symptoms right away. It is also important to consult with an experienced car accident lawyer to understand your legal rights and explore your options for compensation.

    The most common types of minor and severe injuries that can result from a car accident include:

    Car accident lawyer

    These types of auto accidents can be deadly or may cause serious injuries, depending on the speed each vehicle was traveling and the point of impact.

     

    What Causes Auto Accidents?

    Motor vehicle collisions can happen for a variety of reasons. In many cases, auto accidents occur due to driver negligence.

    Other common causes of car crashes include:

    • Road debris
    • Animal on the road
    • Distracted driving
    • Aggressive driving
    • Vehicle malfunctions
    • Drunk driving
    • Exceeding the speed limit
    • Street racing
    • Distracted driving
    • Pedestrians

     

    Vehicle Malfunctions that Result in Traffic collisions

    Defective car parts and car technologies can result in auto accidents, causing serious injuries or fatalities. If you have been involved in an accident and believe that a defective car part or faulty technology played a role, it's crucial to consult with an experienced car accident lawyer at MVP Accident Attorneys to understand your legal rights and explore your options for compensation

    Defective car parts or faulty car technology can include:

    • Emergency brake assist
    • Self-driving cars
    • Collision avoidance systems
    • Anti-lock braking systems
    • Faulty tires
    • Steering systems
    • Air bags
    • Fuel systems

    While some technologies can prevent accidents, they can also cause them if they malfunction or if drivers rely on them too much. If you've been in an accident due to these factors, seek legal advice to know your rights and get compensated for injuries and damages.

     

    Where Do Motor vehicle collisions Commonly Occur?

    The most common places automobile accidents occur, include:

    On highways

    In intersections

    In parking lots

    On rural roads

    In construction zones

    On freeways

     

    Road Safety

    Improving road traffic safety is crucial for preventing auto accidents and casualties in the future.

    The Federal Highway Administration and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are two US government agencies that play a crucial role in promoting automotive safety and reducing traffic collisions.

    The Federal Highway Administration oversees the construction, maintenance, and improvement of highways and other transportation infrastructure across the country. This government agency also works to improve road safety by promoting the use of innovative technologies and best practices for road design and construction.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is another government agency that is responsible for reducing the number of deaths, injuries, and economic losses resulting from motor vehicle crashes. The NHTSA works to improve road safety by setting and enforcing safety standards for vehicles and equipment, conducting research and data analysis to identify safety trends, and promoting education and public awareness campaigns to encourage safe driving behavior.

    Together, both government agencies play an important role in efforts to reduce motor vehicle collisions and improve road safety.

    Last year I had an accident and my car was totaled. I was very upset and didn't know what to do. A friend told me to call MVP and it was the best decision ever. They got my car paid off very fast, set me up with a doctor, and just last week I got a fat check for my pain and suffering. Thank you MVP!

    MVP Accident Attorneys was the best decision ever made. They helped me through the process and made it stress free for me. It was first accident and i was super stressed because i didn’t know what to do. I called MVP and was treated so kindly by amazing people who went over my accident with me and any questions i had. They have a whole team! I was then helped by attorney and case managers who set me up with treatment so I can get all patched up. Finally, the liens department took care of all my bills and made sure i had nothing to worry about. 11/10 would recommend them to family and friends! You cannot go wrong with MVP
