Injured In An Auto Accident? We Understand Your Pain.
A serious accident can bring your life to a grinding halt. Medical bills, lost wages and vehicle damages are only the beginning of the problems you are faced with after an auto accident. The attorneys here at the Burrage Law Firm, PLLC, can help.
We know how frustrating it can be to deal with insurance companies, medical providers and everyone else involved in your auto accident. Large enough to provide a wealth of experience, yet small enough to focus on each client as an individual — our law firm is here to serve your legal needs with dedication and diligence.
We Have The Experience It Takes To Get Results
Not every car accident is the same. The amount of money you are able to receive depends largely on the insurance policy of the other driver. This means that when you are in an accident with a truck, bus or another commercial vehicle, you need skilled representation to fight for every penny.
Burrage Law Firm, PLLC, is uniquely qualified to take high-value cases involving serious injuries with commercial vehicles. No matter your situation, we take care of all the details, from gathering evidence to interviewing witnesses. That way, you can focus on making a full recovery.
We Have Answers To Your Car Accident Questions
A bad motor vehicle accident will likely leave you with many questions about your rights, the amount of compensation you will receive and other details about your case. These are just some of the questions we get asked from our clients at Burrage Law Firm. For more specific questions about your unique case, schedule your free consultation to meet with our attorneys.
If I wasn’t wearing my seatbelt, can I still file a car accident claim?
Depending on the details of your case, you may still be able to file a claim if you were not wearing your seatbelt. If the other driver is found to be over 50% at fault for the accident, you can still file a claim against them. However, if your decision not to wear a seatbelt is primarily to blame for your injuries, you may not be able to collect damages from the other party.
To learn if you have a viable claim, it is always a good idea to schedule a free consultation with a car accident lawyer.
How do I pay for medical care following a car accident?
The purpose of a car accident lawsuit is to reimburse you for medical costs that you incur as a result of your accident. This means you will typically need to pay for your own medical expenses, keeping thorough records of all payments so you can collect full compensation from the at-fault party down the road.
One of the first places you should turn to for payment is your own auto insurance policy. If your vehicle was badly damaged in the accident, collision coverage will help pay for repairs. If you opted into medical payments coverage (MedPay), your own auto insurance policy will help cover your medical expenses.
If you do not have MedPay, you should use your health insurance to pay for medical care. Be sure to seek thorough care and follow through with all treatments, as not doing so could hurt your claim.
Don’t Just Trust The Insurance Company
Insurance companies almost never have your best interests in heart. They operate for a profit and are always looking for a way to undercut you and offer much less than you deserve.
We firmly believe everybody should have a personal injury lawyer by their side following an accident. That is why we offer free initial consultations to all accident victims, so you can learn more about how we can help.
