Leading Cause Of Life-Changing Injuries
Car accidents are the top cause of serious personal injuries and fatalities in the Washington area. Simply for being in the wrong place at the wrong time, many of our clients and their families have been forced to adapt to lives forever limited by brain injury, spinal cord injury and other injuries that are often the result of car accidents. Sadly, it is these types of injuries that most often require the proven legal skills that Lewis & Tompkins provides.
Through four decades of legal representation to car accident injury victims throughout D.C., Virginia and Maryland, our car accident attorneys have learned first-hand that the costs of these terrible injuries aren’t confined simply to long-term care, rehabilitation and medical expenses. We also know the financial toll of the emotional loss, pain and suffering many families of the injured must endure. While a seriously injured car accident victim may survive an accident, dreams and expectations of a full, healthy and productive life often do not.
By learning everything we can about a client’s daily life, both before and after the accident, our attorneys build cases that compel judges and juries to empathize with a car accident injury victim, helping us obtain maximum compensation for our client’s injuries. Getting to know our clients and understanding the trust and responsibility they place in our abilities is pivotal to this effort, and is the foundation of the success our attorneys have consistently obtained for our clients.
Handling High Dollar Claims For Serious Car Accident Injuries
Because of improved safety standards in cars, SUVs and trucks, and improving road conditions, there has been a noticeable decline in car accident injuries and deaths during the past few years. When injury-causing car accidents do occur, however, the cost of health care recovery continues to spiral upward.
Resistance to fair settlements for high dollar medical claims involving lengthy hospital care is common in the casualty insurance industry. Because medical care for catastrophic injuries can cost many thousands of dollars per day, these types of claims face the most scrutiny and inspection by insurance claims adjusters, underwriters and other insurance personnel involved in the claims and settlements process.
If any circumstances of either the accident or the victim’s insurance policy, however trivial, can clear or limit the insurance company of liability, then it becomes a legitimate basis for denial or reduction of an insurance claim. Even when a claim is rock solid, many insurance companies aren’t above simply inventing reasons to deny a high dollar claim.
In these situations, only attorneys who aggressively negotiate the best terms for their clients can force insurance companies to comply with their obligations to car accident injury victims. At Lewis & Tompkins, our reputation as successful trial attorneys precedes us and ensures that insurance companies negotiate in good faith when offering settlements to our clients.
