Injured in an Accident? Protect Your Rights and Talk to an Experienced Attorney!
Thousands of people each year are injured in car crashes. The insurance company for the driver who caused the crash will immediately begin working to protect its insured driver. Often, the insurance carrier will contact you to discuss what happened and ask you to identify your injuries. People who have been injured in a rear-end collision, a failure-to-yield, or other kind of car accident have questions like these:
- How will my medical bills be paid?
- How will the accident affect my insurance?
- How will I be compensated for my damages?
- How long will it take to settle my claim?
- How will I know what is a fair settlement?
- Should I speak with the insurance company?
To obtain the information that you need to make informed decisions about your car accident claim, you can speak with an experienced Hammond car accident lawyer at the trial law firm of Westland & Bennett P.C. We are here to answer your questions and enforce the rights of injured people like yourself. We can be reached at 219-440-7550, or contact us by secure e-mail.
Highland Auto Accident Lawyers
Our practice emphasizes helping people injured in car accidents, motorcycle accidents, tractor-trailer accidents and other kinds of accidents, including work-related accidents. You may be assured that we will provide you with the support and the legal advocacy that you need to get results. Your rights include: the right to obtain compensation for medical care, for lost wages, for transportation to and from the doctor, for lost quality of life and for other damages related to pain and suffering. Whether you have soft-tissue injury to your neck, disk or back injury from a rear-end whiplash accident or you are dealing with broken bones and serious permanent brain injury from a driver's failure to yield, we are here to help protect your rights.
We will fully investigate and evaluate your injuries in an effort to secure the maximum full and fair amount of compensation for you, which will allow you to obtain the necessary medical treatment to help you recover and move on with your life. A couple of the investigatory questions are as follows:
- Was the driver of the other vehicle texting?
- Was the driver of the other car drinking or drunk?
- Was there an issue with the design or manufacture of either of the cars involved in the accident?
- Was there an issue with the highway design or road construction that contributed to the accident?
If you have been injured in a car accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, you still have a right to recover damages if you have uninsured motorist coverage. We have been successful in seeking compensation from a client's own insurance company, through the uninsured and underinsured motorist's provisions of the insurance policy.
