Portland car accident attorneys that Mainers trust
Medical expenses for treating a Portland intersection accident injury can add up quickly and become overwhelming. You may need diagnostic tests, surgery, hospitalization, medication and physical therapy. There may be multiple follow-up appointments with doctors. If you are left unable to work, there is less income coming in.
Insurance companies aren’t on your side when you’ve been hurt in a crash. They don’t want to pay you the financial compensation you deserve because it cuts into their profits. So, they’ll try to find an excuse to pay you as little as possible. They’ll challenge the extent of your injuries or blame you for causing the accident.
That’s not acceptable. Our legal team investigates your accident in Portland to find out what really happened at that intersection. We gather evidence and carefully review accident reports. We talk to witnesses who saw what happened. In some cases, we may consult accident reconstruction experts and other specialists.
We know where to look for evidence of negligence. The driver who caused your Portland accident may have speeding or ignored a traffic signal. The driver may have made a sudden turn or moved forward despite having an obstructed view. In some cases, a driver may have been distracted or was operating under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
