We’ll File Your Claim After an Accident

When you are facing major injuries, it’s nice to have friends by your side who will take care of your legal issues. That way, you can rest and concentrate on your recovery.

Insurance companies make their money by paying out as little in claims as possible. After an accident, insurance company agents will often try to get victims to make statements that can hurt your claim. That’s why you should meet with a personal injury attorney before talking to an insurance agent. In fact, you should let your attorney do all the talking.

Your attorney will investigate the accident to find out who’s liable for your injuries. This investigation may include:

  • Incident reports
  • Police records
  • Witness interviews
  • Photographs and videos
  • Accident scene recreations
  • Medical records
  • Consultations with expert witnesses

When the investigation is complete, your attorney will calculate the cost of your injuries. Then they will file claims against anyone who contributed your injuries. For example, in the case of a truck accident, your lawyer may file a claim against the careless driver in addition to the manager and the trucking company because they employed someone with a dangerous driving record.

Your attorney’s claim may include these types of expenses:

  • Ambulance rides
  • Emergency room treatment
  • Doctor’s office visits
  • Surgery
  • Physical therapy
  • Lost wages
  • Reduced earning capacity
  • Pain and suffering

Cases We Handle

Accidents can happen when you least expect it. Whether you are traveling with your family when another driver cuts you off, shopping in a supermarket where someone didn’t clean up a spill, or walking through your neighborhood when a vicious dog is on the loose, there are many times when you can be injured through no fault of your own.

The attorneys at DiBella Law Offices, P.C. handle several types of personal injury cases. Some of the claims we see most often include:

  • Car Accidents. When people act carelessly by driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, speeding, running red a light, changing lanes without looking first, tailgating, driving while distracted, or any other type of negligent behavior, the results can be catastrophic.
  • Truck Accidents can be devastating for pedestrians and other drivers because trucks are so massive and they take a long time to come to a complete stop. If the driver gets distracted for an instant or fails to make the right decision when there is a stoppage in traffic, in can cause an accident that kills or injures several people. Trucking companies must hire qualified drivers and monitor their performance to keep us all safe on the road.
  • Motorcycle riders are particularly vulnerable because unlike people in cars, they don’t have seatbelts, airbags, and cabins to protect them. That’s why motorcycle crashes are likely to cause devastating injuries. Drivers don’t always look out for motorcycle riders, and they frequently cause accidents by merging or turning into motorcycles.
  • Dog bites. Being attacked by a dog is a terrifying experience, especially for children. These events lead to long-lasting trauma, and they often cause serious injuries and scarring that require extensive treatment to heal.
  • Slip and fall accidents may occur at a private business, along a stairway, on a rainy or snow-covered sidewalk, at an apartment complex, or in someone’s home. Businesses, property owners, and governments have a duty to anticipate dangerous conditions and remedy them before someone gets hurts.
