CAR INJURY CLAIMS
Car accidents, besides being extremely terrifying, cause a enormous amount of injuries. This isn’t surprising considering the speed of the car or cars involved, how heavy they are and many other factors. The human body simply can not withstand the impact and force of a car accident without usually suffering injuries and pain, including injuries to people’s cervical (neck) and lumbar (low back) spines, which are two of the most common types of injuries in car accidents.
Recent data shows that each year a massive amount of people are injured or disabled from motor vehicle accidents, although the numbers vary a bit, usually around 20 to 50 million people are injured in motor vehicle accidents each year.
Some of these injuries were relatively minor, however, many were much more serious, resulting in nerve damage, herniated discs, disc protrusions, traumatic brain injuries and/or concussions. Some were even more serious, resulting in catastrophic injuries such as paralysis. Sadly, over 40,000 of these auto crashes caused someone’s loved one to lose his or her life (these are often called “wrongful death” claims).
A GENTLE HAND TO PROTECT OUR CLIENTS, A STRONG FIST TO PUNISH OUR CLIENT’S OPPONENTS
Whether you had a minor impact, also called a “fender-bender” or a massive collision unfortunately many times injuries result. Although the auto insurance companies try hard to trick people into thinking that any money a injured victim will get will come from the driver who was at fault, this is simply not true. The auto insurance companies are the ones who must pay money to you if your injured due to someone else’s bad driving.
The majority of the auto accidents that occur are due to negligent driving by one or more of the driver’s involved in the collision. Regardless of what some law offices might try to say about it being confusing or difficult to determine who is at fault, in the majority of the crashes, who is at fault (or put another way, who was negligent) is very clear. For instance, Ramunno Law has represented thousands of people who have been injured because they were hit in the rear by a negligent or reckless driver. Likewise, often eyewitnesses or traffic cameras conclusively show which driver ran a red light and is therefore at fault.
However, even where liability is disputed, for instance in an intersection collision where both drivers are claiming they had the green light and there are no independent witnesses or other evidence, Ramunno and Ramunno Law Offices isn’t afraid to take these cases. Indeed, we routinely take cases where are clients are pursuing injury claims, but the other driver is blaming our client. We have learned this is a common response of the other driver and his or her auto insurance company.
Ramunno and Ramunno, P.A. has no hesitation in taking these cases and taking them to trial. However, our track record of success usually is enough to convince the other driver’s auto insurance company to settle without the need for a trial. When, and if, the other driver’s insurance company refuses our demands and goes to trial, Ramunno and Ramunno, P.A. looks forward to going to trial and winning, we believe its important not to back down from big insurance and their efforts to bully injured victims.
The vast majority of car, motorcycle, truck, and/or bus accidents are caused by someone’s negligence as they are driving a vehicle. However, sometimes the driver has done nothing wrong, and rather, the accident is caused by the defective design and construction of the vehicle and/or the vehicle’s equipment. For instance, Ramunno and Ramunno, P.A. is proud that we were one of the law offices that played a role in the enormous Bridgestone/Firestone and Ford Motor Company class action lawsuits (that stemmed from Bridgestone’s defective tires and Ford’s defective design of some of its SUVs) from many years ago. However, other example are also relevant, such as when GM put hundred of thousands of dangerous and defective cars on the roads, putting profits before safety. Ramunno and Ramunno, P.A. has been involved in many lawsuits and claims involving defective brakes, tires, and other defects in cars and trucks, these cases are often called product liability claims.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU’VE BEEN INJURED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT
If you’ve been in a car, truck, motorcycle and/or bus accident, first, don’t assume the accident was your fault, in fact, unless it’s extremely clear, like you’ve rear ended someone who was stopped at a red light, be careful about jumping to conclusions before you’ve talked to a Ramunno and Ramunno, P.A. team member. If the police came, that’s fine, but often the police do not respond to auto accidents unless an ambulance is needed or there are other aggravating factors, like one of the driver’s is intoxicated. Not having a police report will not stop Ramunno and Ramunno, P.A. from getting you money for your injury claim and will not reduce the amount of money your injury claim is worth, so don’t lose any sleep over the lack of a police report.
Next, if your feeling any pain, discomfort, dizziness, confusion, muscle tightness, etc get examined by a medical provider at once. If that involves going to the emergency room, that is fine. However, many people try to avoid the emergency room and prefer seeing a chiropractor, an urgent care center, an injury specialist and/or their family doctor, etc and any of these are also excellent choices. In addition to this, if your able, call Ramunno and Ramunno, P.A. right away. Obviously, if your injuries are severe, for instance, if you’ve been knocked unconscious, suffered a broken leg or been taken to the hospital for surgery, it might take a while before you are able to contact us. But, as soon as your able contact us so we can discuss with you your injury claim and see if we can help you get the money from the auto insurance company that you deserve. The sooner the better, in fact, contacting us the day of the accident will put us at an advantage and the auto insurance company at disadvantage. If you can’t contact us the day of the accident, contacting us within 1 to 5 days of the accident is what you should aim for, but if its longer than that, we can still help you get money for your injury claim. Basically, the sooner you call us, the better.
In addition, please do NOT sign anything from the auto insurance company. The auto insurance companies, whether Allstate, Liberty Mutual, Progressive, State Farm a/k/a Snake Farm, all employ enormous amounts of insurance adjusters and insurance attorneys. These people are not on your side and their job is to get you to say something that will hurt your injury claim’s value and/or to sign something that will hurt – or even eliminate – your injury claim. Their focus is on keeping you from getting any money, or getting as little as possible. Regardless of what they say, they do not care that your injured and in pain, in fact, if anything, they hope to use the confusion you might have due to your injuries and/or your medicine to take advantage of you. If they are smiling, it’s not because their nice. Plenty of multi-millionaires and billionaires, such as Bernie Madoff (the now imprisoned billionaire con artist), were smiling all day long – as they ripped their victims off. You can not trusts them and should hire Ramunno and Ramunno, P.A. as soon as possible so we can start protecting your rights and moving your injury claim forward.
