Indian Shores Auto Accident Attorney

If you were in an auto accident, the first thing you need to do, after receiving medical care and giving your statement to the police, is discuss your claim with an attorney. Do not talk to the other party or their insurance company before talking to an attorney of your own, because anything you say to the other party can, and likely will, be used to harm your case. Here at The Reep Law Firm, our Indian Shores auto accident attorney stand by our clients from day one to give them the best possible chance of a successful resolution.

Accident Versus Crash

When it comes to auto accidents, there really is no true accident. Accident is simply a popular term used to describe a crash that could have and should have been avoided, because an “accident” is defined as, “an event that takes place without one’s foresight or expectation; an undesigned, sudden, and unexpected event.” If “accident” now sounds like an improper description for what happens when someone gets behind the wheel drunk, or decides to check their phone for texts while driving a three-ton block of steel down the highway at 60 miles an hour, you would be correct. Just about all traffic collisions are preventable, and part of our job as your lawyer is to prove that the other party caused the collision by doing something they should not have been doing, such as failing to yield right of way, or speeding. Once we have established fault, and liability, the next step in a personal injury claim is establishing damages

Damages in an Indian Shores Auto Accident

One of the longest delays between getting in a wreck and receiving your final settlement check or lawsuit verdict is the time it takes to fully and accurately assess your damages. Generally, the more severe the injuries a plaintiff suffers, the longer it takes for their medical outcome to be understood. While a fractured collarbone is quick to heal and the long term prognosis is usually pretty well understood from an early date, the same is not true of a traumatic brain injury, serious leg fracture, or facial injuries. It takes many months to accurately assess a plaintiff’s full damages, which greatly depend on their long term outcome. These damages can include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Future cost of medical care
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional distress
  • Loss of joy of life
  • Lost wages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • PTSD
  • Permanent scarring and disfigurement
  • Property damage
