Auto Accident Cases


After an auto accident, time is of the essence. By having an attorney from the get-go, you can make sure you get the evidence you need to prove your case. Whether you are just dealing with a damaged vehicle or dealing with more serious personal injuries, Mark Reider can help guide you to ensure you get what you are owed from insurance companies and the other driver. Below are some answers to commonly asked questions you should be aware of in the event for an auto accident.

No traffic collisions are the same. You need an attorney to present the unique facts of your case. Accident victims that are represented by an attorney recover up to three times more than victims who handle their own cases. Insurance companies will try and minimize your injury claims. They will record every statement you make as evidence against you at a later date. You should contact Mark before speaking with your insurance company or as soon as you feel you need legal representation.
The most important requirement for a personal injury claim is negligence. You will be required to prove duty, breach of duty, cause and damages. Mark will identify the negligence, outline your injuries, assemble evidence and gather witnesses and other information required to prove the negligence in your case.
If you or a family member has been involved in an auto accident, you should discuss your case with Mark immediately. As time goes by, certain evidence in your case becomes impossible to acquire, witnesses may become out of reach. Again, you should contact a lawyer before speaking with your insurance company, the insurance company of the other driver as your statements may put you at a disadvantage.
Your case may include one or all of these forms of recovery:
  • Pain & Suffering - Refers to the less obvious ways you suffered from the accident. Financial compensation might not make pain go away, but it can help to relieve the burden imposed on victims who unnecessarily suffer with severe discomfort.
  • Disability - Can range from minor disabilities to disabilities that make everyday life impossible or challenge an person's ability to survive. Victims that suffer a disability can often receive both compensatory and punitive damages.
  • Mental & Emotional Distress - Mental anguish from the psychological impact of an injury or accident can cause depression, anxiety and other disorders that interfere with personal relationships and the victims ability to manage life as they did before the accident.
  • Economic and Out of Pocket Expenses - Courts allow victims to receive compensation for the total amount of income that was lost, medical expenses and other expenses. Victims of auto accidents should keep all receipts, estimates, and insurance paperwork as evidence of the expenses incurred.
