Serious damages can occur even in low-speed accidents. The degree of the injuries often depends on whether a seat belt was worn by the victim, the velocity of the car, whether the vehicle impacted another object or flipped over, whether the car caught on fire, and how well the car responded to the crash. Few car accident victims walk away with minor injuries, but others endure major damage that sometimes result in hospital visits, operation, amputation, physical therapy, and lost wages. Serious vehicle crashes can lead to brain trauma, broken bones, damage to the nerves, severe burns, and even death. If you or someone you love has sustained injuries in a car crash due to someone else's carelessness, call the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm at 904-222-6343, today.
You do not have to deal with the insurance companies alone. Tactless, insurance companies work to reduce costs by minimizing car accident settlements. You may be offered an insufficient settlement that does not take care of your damages, hospital bills, wage losses, and recovery expenses. Do not speak to the insurance company until you are represented by an experienced Jacksonville car accident attorney at the Merritt & Merritt Law Firm.
Our experienced personal injury attorneys will evaluate your case and determine if someone else is responsible for your injuries, recovery, and damages. If a third party is liable for the incident, it is likely that you are owed compensation for your damages. Reimbursement for a car collision case may include monetary damages for your medical bills, restricted income capacity, and suffering. In many cases, punitive damages may also be allotted in the case of extreme neglect or carelessness.
