Car Crashes and Other Vehicle Accidents

Legal strength for Stuart auto accident victims

Vehicle crashes are the most frequent cause of personal injury and accidental death in Florida. Serious car and truck accidents cause medical and legal hardships for drivers, passengers, and even pedestrians. When you are severely injured in an accident caused by the negligence or carelessness of another, you face immediate problems that can be overwhelming.

It is important to obtain knowledgeable legal representation from an injury lawyer at Colter Law Group as soon as possible to investigate exactly what caused the accident and who was at fault so that documenting your claim can begin immediately.

Automobile accidents

Many different conditions can play a part in automobile accidents:

  • Unsafe road
  • Mechanical failure
  • Driver incompetence
  • Reckless driving
  • Excessive speed
  • Inattention to the road or road conditions
  • Violation of traffic laws
  • Defective vehicle
  • Cell phone use
  • Unlicensed driver
  • Drunk driving
  • Drowsiness

A Stuart personal injury attorney from Colter Law Group investigates all causes of action thoroughly before filing a lawsuit for injuries and damages resulting from the accident. This information is necessary to prove that the driver of the other vehicle caused the accident by not paying attention or not taking reasonable care.

Under Florida law, the person who was at fault for injuring you is responsible for more than just your medical bills:

  • Past, current and estimated future medical expenses
  • Time lost from work, including time spent going to medical appointments and therapy
  • Property damage, including your vehicle
  • Permanent disfigurement and disability
  • Your emotional distress, including anxiety, depression, and interference with your family relationships
  • A change in your future earning ability due to the injury
  • The cost of hiring someone to do household chores when you could not do them
  • Any other costs that were a direct result of the accident

Truck accidents

The weight and force of a truck, especially when moving at high speed, create tremendous impact in a collision with a smaller vehicle. The chance of evere vehicle damage and serious personal injuries, even fatalities, increase tenfold in these crashes. Truck/auto accidents often lead to high monetary judgments against trucking companies. Larger trucking companies usually act quickly to protect themselves by bringing in investigators, insurance companies, and their own lawyers. Contact Colter Law Group immediately for representation that is just as forceful in protecting your claim and counteracting aggressive lawyers in the trucking industry. Above all, do not sign anything presented to you by these lawyers without first consulting your own personal injury attorney.
