Car accidents are among the leading causes of death and catastrophic injury in the United States every year. Tragically, a driver's negligence often destroys a victim’s way of life and often prevents victims from earning a living and supporting their family.
Fortunately, the law requires negligent drivers and their insurance companies to pay fair compensation to the innocent victims they harm. The legal team at Meyers & Flowers is comprised of some of the most successful car accident attorneys in Chicago and throughout the State of Illinois. The Meyers & Flowers car accident litigation team combines years of experience in complex automobile litigation with the use of modern technology to achieve the best possible results for every client.
Reasons To Hire A Car Accident Attorney
Car accident litigation can be unexpectedly complicated and therefore it is extremely difficult for victims to obtain a fair compensation without the help of experienced and reputable car accident attorneys. The insurance companies who insure the negligent drivers often take advantage of victims who are not represented by experienced car accident trial lawyers. Some specific reasons for hiring a car accident attorney include:
Car accident victims are entitled to receive compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of normal life and disability and emotional distress. Insurance companies can only be forced to pay fair compensation by experienced car accident lawyers who have the skill and knowledge needed to obtain fair compensation for their clients.
Negligent drivers who cause accidents often do not tell their insurance companies the truth about how the accident occurred. The insurance companies for the negligent drivers often try to blame the victim for causing the accident in an effort to avoid having to pay compensation. In these situations, experienced car accident lawyers can hire accident reconstruction specialists who utilize modern technology to prove the accident was caused by the negligent driver and was not the fault of the innocent victim.
Insurance Coverage Issues
In automobile crashes involving death and/or serious injury, the most important and complicated issue is the amount of insurance coverage applicable to the case. The insurance coverage for any accident can be extremely complicated and difficult to understand. The experienced car accident lawyers at Meyers & Flowers have the knowledge and skill needed to help you recover fair compensation from every potential insurance policy applicable to the case. These can include general liability policies, umbrella policies as well as uninsured and underinsured motorist policies.
People are often killed or seriously injured in car accidents that are caused by defective car parts such as:
- Defective tires
- Sticking gas pedals causing unintended acceleration
- Airbag and seatbelt failures
- Braking system failures
- Roof supports that collapse upon impact
If you have been injured in a collision caused by an automobile defect, the experienced car accident lawyers at Meyers & Flowers can ensure the manufacturer of the defective device is held accountable and is forced to pay you fair compensation for all of your injuries and losses.
In some cases there are circumstances that may limit or alter a driver's liability. For example, negligent drivers working for the government at the time of the crash may be protected from litigation. Additionally, in circumstances where the negligent driver did not have permission to use the car at the time of the crash there will be complications involving insurance responsibility.
The team of Chicago car accident lawyers at Meyers and flowers can help you evaluate each and every special circumstance applicable to your case and help you understand all of the issues that apply your situation.
