Motor Vehicle Accidents And Other Personal Injury Claims
Personal injury cases often become complicated and stressful for the injured. A typical claim involves dealing with insurance companies, medical bills, and proving negligence. You may also face the stress of lost wages, physical pain, and funeral expenses in wrongful death cases.
The most common personal injury cases our clients bring to us include:
- Car and motorcycle accidents
- Trucking and commercial vehicle accidents
- Construction accidents
- Wrongful death claims
Accidents involving commercial vehicles have their own set of challenges. They usually involve examining the driver’s logbook and driving record for signs of fatigue or a history of reckless driving. These cases also involve checking the vehicle’s maintenance record and investigating the possibility of a manufacturer defect. When you’ve been injured in an accident with a truck or commercial vehicle, Hotard & Hise can help you navigate the claim process and fight for the compensation you deserve.
Documenting What Happens After The Accident
If you’ve been injured due to the negligence of another, it’s important to document everything associated with the accident. Records, bills, and any other information to keep include:
- Information about doctor visits and hospital stays
- Medical bills
- Insurance statements
- Conversations with your insurance company
- Any contact from the party at fault
- Time missed from work and lost wages
Whether your injury happened at home, at work, or out in public, we can provide the legal guidance you need to get the compensation you deserve.
