Q: I just need an attorney on this car accident that hit the back of a semi and I was the passenger in the car is still wit
A: Were you injured in the accident? It is important you seek immediate medical treatment for all injuries in the crash. Even though you were a passenger, you can seek reasonable compensation which includes lost wages, pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, medical bills, and the nature and extent of your injuries as they affect your ability to live and work as you did before the accident. I have 38 years of experience helping the injured receive full compensation. Call me for a free consultation of your legal rights and how I can help you.
If you were injured and fault for the accident was placed on the driver of the car, you have a claim against the driver's insurance policy. If the truck was determined to be at fault, you have a claim against the trucks insurance policy. Either way, no contributory negligence can be attributed to you.
The only situation where it would be difficult for you to recover is if the driver of your vehicle was at fault for the accident and his/her insurance had lapsed. Even though you have a great case, it would be impossible to find an attorney to assist you because though you have an excellent claim, THERE IS NO ONE TO PAY the claim unless the driver is wealthy, beyond reason. Few such people permit their auto insurance to lapse.
