Portland Car Accident Lawyers Handling Passenger Injuries
Our experienced Maine attorneys have been getting results for the injured since 1979
Car accidents typically involve two or more drivers, but passengers can also suffer injuries in a car crash. The process for recovering financial compensation can be confusing and frustrating. That’s why passengers need a Portland car accident attorney who will fight for their rights.
The lawyers at Jabar LaLiberty & Dubord, LLC know the impact an injury can have on passengers who were in a car crash. They may need surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. They may not be able to work because of their injuries, meaning there is less money coming in. They can suffer physically, emotionally and financially.
In some cases, passengers may feel strange about pursuing legal action against the negligent driver who caused the accident – because that driver may be a friend or family member. We understand why you might be reluctant to go through the process of recovering financial compensation.
Portland car accident lawyers who fight for you
It is important, however, to remember that this is not about getting your friend or family member in trouble. It’s about making sure the insurance company meets its responsibilities. It’s about getting you the financial compensation you deserve so you can get the help you need and move forward in your life.
Remember, insurance companies aren’t on your side. They are interested in making as much money as they can. So they will try to pay you as little as possible. They may make you a settlement offer soon after the crash, promising quick payment. It will fall far short of covering all of the damages you have suffered.
That’s why our lawyers focus on building strong cases built on facts. We gather evidence and review accident reports and medical records. We identify and interview witnesses. If needed, we consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists. We prove that your injuries were caused by the car accident and you deserve compensation.
Our lawyers prepare your case and are ready to fight for you in court. Often, the insurance companies agree to talk about a settlement. Our attorneys are skilled negotiators and will focus on a settlement that provides you with compensation for current and future medical expenses, lost wages and other damages such as pain and suffering.
