Representing Car Accident Victims Involving All Motor Vehicles Including: Autos, Motorcycles, ATV’s & RV’s
An attorney who represents the victim of such a crash needs the expertise and resources to undertake complex accident reconstruction and to explore theories of recovery beyond a claim asserted against the careless motorist who caused the crash. This can involve exploring the possibility of a products liability claim (whether the car was “crashworthy” and properly designed to withstand the force of the crash), and claims based upon highway and roadway maintenance defects (whether the design or maintenance of the roadway contributed to an accident).
Additionally, an attorney who represents the victim of an automobile accident should have experience with the law applicable to insurance coverage. The particular circumstances of an accident may implicate multiple policies of insurance, including available underinsurance and uninsured motorist coverage. When an insurance company refuses to settle a case within the available policy limits, the carrier can also be liable for a “bad faith” refusal to settle. In such cases, the ultimate recovery may be far greater than the available insurance coverage limits.
