Car Accident Attorneys
Dealing with Insurance After a Car Accident is More than a Just a Hassle. If You Don’t Protect Yourself, You Could End Up Paying for Someone Else’s Mistake for Years to Come.
At Oberheiden Law, we know that dealing with the aftermath of a car accident can be stressful. We also know that it can be especially stressful if you are out of work and facing a mountain of medical bills as the result of a serious injury. If a loved one was killed, the consequences can be truly devastating, and it can seem like there is no light at the end of the tunnel.
This is why we approach car accident cases differently from other law firms. For one, we charge our clients less. While most law firms charge 33% of their clients’ recoveries, our contingency fee is only 25%. This means thousands of extra dollars – and potentially tens of thousands of extra dollars – in your pocket at the end of your case.
For another, we rely on a nationwide network of senior attorneys who have collectively recovered more than $6 billion in compensation for accident victims and their families. We are available to represent clients in all 50 states, and the attorneys in our network share insights and strategies in order to help maximize each individual client’s financial recovery. Like we said, we know what you’re going through, and we know that it is essential for you to recover the full compensation you deserve.
When Can You Recover Financial Compensation After a Car Accident?
When you are on a road or highway surrounded by other vehicles, there is a lot that can go wrong. Numerous factors can – and do – lead to serious collisions, and many of these factors will entitle victims and their families to recover their losses. At Oberheiden Law, our lawyers have over 50 years of combined experience helping victims and families recover, and we handle car accident cases involving all types of factors. This includes:
- Careless driving (i.e. running a stop sign or merging without looking)
- Distracted driving
- Drowsy driving
- Impaired driving (i.e. driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs)
- Negligent hiring or supervision of dangerous drivers
- Negligent vehicle maintenance and repairs
- Reckless and aggressive driving
- Road rage
- Vehicle and road defects
How Does Auto Insurance Work in a Car Accident?
If a rock cracks your windshield, your car is damaged in a storm, or you hit a wild animal, dealing with auto insurance is a relatively straightforward process. You file a claim under your insurance policy, an adjuster might come out to inspect the damage, you take your car to get repaired, and the repair shop sends the bill to your insurance company. But, when dealing with a car accident, the process is much more complicated.
The specific steps involved in filing an insurance claim after a car accident vary by state. While a small number of states have “no-fault” insurance laws that limit fault-based claims to accidents involving serious injuries, most states allow accident victims to seek full compensation regardless of the severity of their injuries. At Oberheiden Law, our lawyers are knowledgeable about the auto insurance laws in all 50 states, and we can use our knowledge to seek the maximum compensation available in your case.
When you choose Oberheiden Law, your lawyer will:
- Oversee a comprehensive investigation in order to establish liability for your losses
- Help you obtain professional medical care from a doctor who specializes in helping traumatic accident victims
- Calculate full compensation for your financial (i.e. medical expenses and lost wages) and non-financial (i.e. pain and emotional trauma) losses
- Deal with the insurance companies for you and pursue any available third-party claims on your behalf
- Negotiate for a favorable settlement and take your case to trial if necessary
Can you deal with the insurance companies on your own? While this certainly is an option, it is not an option we recommend. From proving liability to calculating just compensation for your pain and suffering, there are simply too many issues that require in-depth legal knowledge. The insurance companies will often try to take advantage of unrepresented accident victims as well, and hiring an experienced attorney is the best way to ensure that you recover full compensation.
