From talking on the phone while driving to texting while driving, and from eating behind the wheel to having an animated conversation with passengers, distracted driving takes many forms. While most forms seem innocent enough, distracted driving is actually extremely dangerous. In fact, distracted driving is now the number one cause of accidents across the nation, accounting for 10% of all fatal crashes, 18% of all injury crashes, and 16% of all police-reported motor vehicle crashes. In short, distracted driving is a serious problem.
If you or a loved one was injured in a car accident caused by a distracted driver, you may be entitled to compensation. The Belvidere distracted driving lawyers at Brassfield, Krueger & Ramlow, Ltd., can evaluate your case, help you understand your rights, and fight on your behalf for the compensation you need to recover in financial comfort. Contact our office today to schedule your free consultation.
No car accident claim is created equal, and there is no set formula that a judge or insurance company uses to calculate how much money a plaintiff will receive. In order to determine the amount of compensation you can recover, the insurance adjuster or decision maker will consider a number of factors, including but not limited to the cause of the accident, the extent of your injuries, the cost of your medical care, whether or not you can work, and how your injuries have impacted your personal life. That said, a skilled attorney can help maximize your settlement by negotiating with all parties to ensure that you recover as much money as possible.
In addition to helping you maximize the amount of money you receive, our team will also fight to reduce any liens against your settlement. Several parties may be interested in seeking repayment by placing a lien on your recovery. Some such parties include healthcare providers, health insurance companies, and auto insurance companies. Your attorney can negotiate with those parties to reduce reimbursement and lien amounts so that you can walk away with as much money in your pocket as possible.
Our attorneys represent clients that were injured as a result of any type of motor vehicle accident. Some of the more common types of cases that we routinely deal with include the following:
Car accident cases can take weeks, months, or even years to settle. If you need to cover the cost of medical expenses in the meantime, and if you do not have any or sufficient medical coverage, our attorneys can advise you of your various options, including pre-settlement financing.
