Innocent people die or are seriously injured because negligent drivers speed, ignore signs, are distracted by cell phones, or are under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
Insurance companies usually ask car accident victims to sign a monetary settlement – and sign it quickly. A quick settlement, or one that you are asked to sign before your injuries are fully understood, benefits the insurance company at your expense.
It is your legal right to have an attorney review insurance company documents before you sign.
Oregon, Washington and California all have time limits to recover your damages from an automobile accident. Once this time has elapsed, it may be impossible to recover any of your medical bills or other expenses.
Furthermore, evidence and memories lapse over time. The sooner you contact an attorney, the better the chance that a lawyer can help you.
