Every year, car crashes seriously injure millions of Americans. So, the chances are that you or a loved one will be a victim. Most of these injuries are permanently disabling, at least to an extent.

As a result, these victims are entitled to substantial compensation.

In a few cases, attorneys are able to resolve cases without filing legal paperwork. If there’s no dispute about liability, the law requires most insurance companies to settle the claim within a few months. But there’s almost always some uncertainty in this area.
Negligence is essentially a lack of care under the circumstances. In car crash claims, the “lack of care” usually means a lack of reasonable care. This duty requires motorists to drive defensively and obey the rules of the road.
