Each year, traffic accidents are responsible for more than 3 million injuries, and current statistics show that every person in the U.S. is likely to be involved in at least one major auto collision during their lifetime. We represent victims who have suffered injuries in accidents with another car, collisions involving tractor-trailers, trucks and motorcycles, as well as pedestrians or bicyclists hit by motor vehicles.
After the initial ordeal of an automobile collision, individuals face another cycle of difficulties as they deal with chronic pain, the challenges of recovering from injuries, medical bills, lost wages, and sometimes a compromised ability to support their family. Emery Reddy’s car accident lawyers can ease this process by helping protect your legal rights, and by fighting to get you the maximum amount from your settlement.
Injuries from car accidents can range from bruises, cuts, soft tissue damage and neck pain to catastrophic injuries involving the head, spinal cord, and brain. As a victim, it is in your best interest to secure guidance and support from an accident lawyer as soon as possible after sustaining an injury. This allows time for a legal expert to build a case on your behalf and collect the evidence necessary to establish liability. The lawyers at Emery Reddy collaborate with experienced investigators to study your accident scene, analyze road conditions, interview witnesses, and reconstruct the event, putting you in the best position to receive full compensation for your injuries.
In addition to offering you our extensive knowledge of Washington State traffic laws and insurance policies, we provide a full range of services to support you through the complex accident claims process. We will negotiate with your health care providers to ensure that you receive quality care, and make sure that your medical bills are paid. We protect your rights in discussions with insurance companies and in communication with other liable parties. We work with your employer to make sure that lost wages get properly documented and fully recovered. This allows you to focus on the most important matter in your personal injury case—your healing.
Following an auto accident, you may be contacted by the insurance company representing the negligent party and offered a settlement for your injuries. If you sign a release for your personal injury claim in exchange for a compensation check, it may effectively put an end to your claim and render you ineligible to pursue additional damages. Bear in mind that, as businesses, insurance companies are not likely to put your interests above the bottom line, even if you feel they have offered a reasonable amount. Hiring an experienced auto accident attorney is the best way to ensure that you maximize the amount of compensation to which you are entitled by law.
