Automobile Accidents

Ackerman Law Office handles a large number of Automobile Accident claims. We find the insurance company frequently underpays accident victims. We enjoy helping the victims fight the insurance companies. Here is a list of things not to do if you are injured by a negligent driver.

Automobile accidents are an everyday occurrence. Nevertheless, they can change the lives of their victims. If you are a victim of a negligent driver you should not lose money. Our system of justice is set up so that the person who is negligent and injures someone should pay for the losses and harms they cause their victim.

In automobile accidents people frequently injure their necks, backs, shoulders, arms, legs, and knees although many injuries are possible. We are familiar with medical issues associated with automobile accidents and can help.

We frequently have to do what we can to reduce lien claimant's payment's in order to maximize our client's recovery. Sometimes we file motions to adjudicate a lien. Frequently, we are able to negotiate with the lien claimant in order to reduce their lien.

Our experienced attorneys are available to help you with your case. We will negotiate with the insurance companies to get your bills paid as quickly as possible to limit damage to your credit rating.

We will review your file to evaluate every aspect of your claim, including the medical bills, past and future, lost wage claims, pain and suffering, loss of consortium, disability as well as any other claims that may be associated with the accident, like the cost to repair or replace your vehicle.

If the person who caused the accident does not have insurance, or the insurance limits are too low we will have to file claims against a person's own policy. This is called an uninsured/underinsured claim.

  • Car accidents
