A Bike Tire Flew Off and Caused My Accident
You are driving along the highway, when a bike tire flies off from somewhere, causing you to swerve into another vehicle or object. Not only can this scenario cause major injury, but permanent damages and death. The person responsible should be held accountable for bodily injuries or property damages. To ensure that justice is served, a personal injury attorney should be consulted. Based on their experience and knowledge of similar cases, they can best determine how to pursue your case. Here are certain things of which you should be aware:
After the Accident
People at fault may be quick to make assumptions. So it would be in your best interest to not involve yourself in disputes or make apologies. Divulging information like insurance coverage could also work against you. The best decision is to contact a personal injury attorney right away. Along with giving sound legal advice, they can assist with filing a lawsuit against the person in the wrong.
Why A Personal Injury Attorney
Personal injury attorneys are well-versed in the laws pertaining to their jurisdiction. This qualifies them to know what’s applicable and what’s not in each category. They can better determine whether it was due to negligence or misconduct. Much time and stress can be eliminated from the process because they will aggressively pursue each case on an individual basis. Since each one is different, they can help victims to get what they deserve, based on the severity of the accident. Not only will they investigate the matter and fight for you in court, but they can get you the money needed to cover medical expenses and punitive damages.
Seeking Fair Compensation
Attorneys’ chief goal is to seek fair compensation on behalf of their clients. These matters can become complicated and difficult to settle because the burden of proof is on the plaintiff. Qualified and experienced personal injury representation is needed to adequately argue your case. If an insurance company is involved, the attorney knows how to go after them and ensure a fair assessment and payout for all damages.
A tire from a bike may seem trivial, but if it flies off and initiated your accident, the damage could be extensive. Damages involving injuries to your person, passengers or vehicle can create unnecessary and unplanned expenses. By having proper legal representation by an attorney who is trained to prove your case, you will be better protected. Contact the Kamerow Law Firm PLLC today online or by calling 703-370-8088.
