Car Accidents

Motor Vehicle Collisions

Whether the Car Accident relates to a car crash, a motorcycle vs car collision, a bicycle vs auto crash, a truck vs car wreck, or a pedestrian vs. automobile collision, a victim’s bodily injury is usually the result of someone’s negligence, carelessness or other wrongful behavior.  Insurance companies and defense attorneys prefer the term “accident” because that term tends to minimize the degree of fault.  It is one of many subtle ways that the defense attempt to reduce what is a fair and reasonable settlement for, what the liability insurance likes to describe as the “occurrence” for the “date of loss”.  Don’t let the at-fault person avoid being held accountable for their behavior!

What is the value?

Many people want to know “what is the value of my car accident injury”?  The answer is that “it depends”.  Ultimately, it is a factor of what the wrongdoer, their employer and/or their insurance is willing to pay and what thevictim is willing to accept.  In turn, that is typically influenced by what one may reasonably expect a local jury to award should the matter go through trial.  Other factors may include financial resources such as insurance coverage limits, “collectability” or insolvency.
