Experienced Vehicle Accident Attorneys Fighting for You

We face inherent risks whenever we travel by car or any other vehicle.

U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) statistics reveal a startling reality: five people were injured in traffic accidents every minute, and a life was lost on the road every fifteen minutes in 2019. In fact, traffic accidents rank as one of the top causes of death for individuals aged 1 to 54 in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). 

You deserve fair compensation if you experienced an injury in a vehicle accident caused by someone else’s negligence. We can help you seek it. 

You have a right to recover your damages, including physical losses, emotional suffering, and property damage. Insurance companies are known for trying to place blame on victims and pay out as little as they can. While anyone can file an insurance claim independently, enlisting the help of a qualified vehicle accident lawyer can ensure you receive the maximum compensation you’re entitled to. We’ll handle all the communication and negotiation with the insurance company on your behalf so you can focus on recovering from your accident.

At Carpenter & Zuckerman, our accomplished personal injury attorneys are well-versed in managing all vehicle accident claims. Other law firms recognize us for our formidable tenacity in settlement negotiations and the courtroom. Let us advocate for you, ensuring you receive the maximum compensation possible in your case.

Common Causes of Traffic Accidents

An endless number of factors can result in a vehicle collision. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Distracted driving (such as texting or eating while driving)
  • Reckless driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Road rage
  • Speeding and other traffic violations
  • Failing to see bicyclists or allow them adequate space on the road
  • Failing to see pedestrians or yield the right of way

Whether one person or multiple parties were at fault in your collision, our team of dedicated vehicle accident attorneys can thoroughly investigate your crash, gather the necessary evidence, and prove liability in your case so you can obtain a fair settlement or court verdict.

Even if you were partially at fault for your accident, it’s still important to talk to an attorney, as you may be entitled to recover partial compensation.

What to Do After a Vehicle Accident

To protect your safety and build a strong foundation for your case, follow these steps after your car or vehicle accident:

  • Call 911 if anyone is injured.
  • File a police report and request a copy for your records.
  • Request contact and insurance information from all involved parties.
  • Gather witness contact information to help corroborate your side of the story.
  • Take photos of the accident scene, including vehicle damage, nearby signage, road conditions, and injuries.
  • Get an immediate medical evaluation in the ER or a regular doctor’s office, even if your injuries do not seem severe.
  • Keep detailed records of all accident-related expenses, including medical bills, vehicle repairs, vehicle rentals, and any other costs associated with your accident. 
  • Call a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. Avoid making statements to the insurance companies before consulting with an attorney.
