We understand how easy it is to get distracted by the skyline in Seattle, whether you are looking at downtown to the north or Mount Rainier to the south. However, when the person driving behind you becomes enthralled with the sights and hits you at full speed while you are stopped in traffic on I-5, or at a light, the ensuing accident can turn your life around, and permanently change your financial stability, your plans, goals, and even your relationships.
You did nothing wrong; yet someone through their negligence has wrecked your car and caused you serious injuries that impact your daily life. At this point, you need an experienced personal injury attorney to help you navigate the legal system and put the pieces of your life back together. And even though it may be hard to assign a dollar-figure to your pain and suffering and loss of your enjoyment of life, the legal system demands that we do just that.
Fighting For Your Just Compensation
According to the Center for Disease Control, every day, distracted driving kills more than 15 people and injuries more than 1200. The insurance company attorneys representing that distracted driver that hit you will routinely try to attach some fault to you, and attempt to settle with you quickly. They will make promises to pay all of your hard, out-of- pocket costs such as the loss of your vehicle and medical bills. They may even offer a figure for your pain and suffering. However, these insurance adjusters and insurance company attorneys are employed to pay you as little as possible. No matter how tempting their offer seems, it is most likely not intended to fairly compensate you for your losses. And if the offer is early in the case, it will not take into consideration significant losses and costs you may very well face in the future.
An experienced personal injury attorney, Matt Menzer is trained to know all of the expenses and challenges you will face after your accident, as well as the value the courts and juries will place on your pain and suffering. In most cases, the amount of the initial settlement offer by the insurance company is never enough. We understand that; we will advocate for you and negotiate the best settlement possible. And if the insurance company is not going to offer you a fair settlement, then we will be prepared to file the lawsuit and take the case to trial so that you can receive all that you are entitled to for your injuries, losses, pain, and suffering.
