Types of Car Accidents
New Hampshire & Maine Auto Accident Attorneys
Injuries can occur in any type of motor vehicle collision. When an accident is caused by the negligence of another driver, injured victims have the legal right to file personal injury claims against the driver's insurance company. When successful, monetary compensation can be awarded for the emotional, physical and economic damages a person suffered. There are a variety of auto accidents for which our experienced and highly regarded legal team is prepared to handle. These include:
- Head-on collisions
- Rear-end accidents
- Side-impact accidents
There are also unique auto accident circumstances that require aggressive and skilled legal representation:
- Distracted driving accidents (due to cell phone use)
- Drunk driving accidents
- Accidents caused by defective auto parts
- Accidents caused by underinsured or uninsured drivers
- Hit and run accidents
These situations have a high potential for difficulties and complications, and often involve various areas of law. Our firm employs a team of top-notch attorneys who specialize in personal injury law and can provide your case with the unique insight needed to be successful. In addition, many personal injury claims for auto accidents are highly contested by insurance companies as they are intent on paying victims as little as possible. Having a knowledgeable personal injury attorney by your side can ensure that you are not taken advantage of during any stage of your claim proceedings and that you obtain the compensation you deserve.
