The Risks of Car Accidents

Posted by on Jun 4, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

The rules of the road are such that it is every person’s responsibility to look out for themselves and others. Most traffic laws are fairly straightforward. Everyone knows to wear a seatbelt, not to speed, and not to drive drunk.

Still, thousands of people are hospitalized each year for car accidents. Drunk drivers are a major cause of fatal accidents. Other causes include inclement weather, distracted driving, and tire blowouts.

Some of these decisions are well within our control. No one forced the driver to become intoxicated before getting behind the wheel, and no one forced the teenager to answer his text messages on the highway.

Others are out of our control. Acts of God and freak accidents happen every day, and when they happen, it can be difficult to assign blame. Sometimes there’s not even a guilty party.

Thankfully, most of the drivers on the road have both a driver’s license and insurance. Adequate car insurance should cover the majority of fees that occur as a result of a collision. Some scenarios don’t always have a simple solution.

If the person who caused the accident is uninsured, and the victim carries liability-only insurance, then it will be difficult for the victim to get the help they deserve. Some insurance companies even go as far as to victim-blame so that their client, the person who caused the collision, will not be liable to cover damages.

Navigating insurance can be complicated, and recovering from injuries only make the job that much more difficult for the victim. Lawrence & Associates helps victims of car collisions in the Cincinnati area get the help they deserve.

Medical bills and fees to repair or replace a damaged car add up quick. Lost wages can also throw a victim into dire financial straits if they have to miss work to recover. A proper settlement from the guilty driver’s insurance company should help cover these expense and lost wages, so the victim will not have to undergo any more stress than they already face.

In the case of freak accidents and Acts of God, a skilled lawyer will still be able to get the proper amount of damages awarded to the victim. The lack of a guilty party does not negate the need for assistance, and it also does not negate the victim’s right to that assistance. Even minor traffic violations such as driving five miles over the posted speed limit can ruin someone’s life.

As someone recovers from their injuries, they will almost always be asked to go a strict medical evaluation for the opposing side’s insurance company. The insurance company may try and weasel their way out of paying what they owe by denying that the other driver was the cause of the acquired injuries.

Speaking to a lawyer that’s on the victim’s side before the evaluation even begins can make a tremendous difference in terms of the payout that is given to the victim.

Fear of Falling

Posted by on Jan 13, 2019 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Did you know that falling injuries are some of the most common injuries across the United States? And that there are at least 424,000 deaths related to falling?  Not all falls are fatal, but most cause some form of life debilitating injury.

Car accidents have even scarier statistics.  You have a 1/77 chance of dying in an automobile accident at any given moment in time and this can increase in likelihood given the situation.  There’s so much that could go wrong, but you don’t think about it until something does.

I never would have thought that I’d be the type of person to get into an accident.  To be fair, they can happen to everyone, but I really didn’t think it would happen to me.  I’m so careful about everything that I do. I never considered myself to be the type of person that would be in this type of situation, that would have to contact a lawyer because of an injury.

After doing the research, I realized that I was more at risk than I realized and that there are a lot of circumstances where you might need an attorney. If you’ve experienced bike accidents, car accidents, complications due to medicine, a slip or fall, or even a dog bite, you will probably need an attorney to make sure that you receive compensation.  It was overwhelming to see how much preparation and evidence was needed even for an accident as small as mine, especially since I was trying to recover. Part of me even thought about throwing in the towel and not pursuing a case at all.

That was before I stumbled across the Glover Law Firm.  They were able to talk to me almost instantly about the specifics of my case – for free.  Immediately, it felt like a burden was lifted off of my shoulders. I thought I was going to have to sacrifice even more time and energy, time that I should have spent healing, but the Glover Law Firm made sure that I had nothing to worry about.  They worked for me so that I could focus on what really matters after my accident.

Even said, at the beginning, I might have been like you – hesitant and confused.  When you’ve never had to handle law before, it can be difficult to nowhere to start or even who to trust.  I felt much better about trusting Attorney Gordon J. Glover after I realized how qualified he really is. He graduated from the University of Florida and for the past fifteen years has been helping people all over The Village area.  His work has made him one of the Top Rated Injury Lawyers, and he has a perfect Avvo 10 rating. After viewing his credentials, I knew there was no one better suited to help me with my case.

I know the time after an accident is a scary and confusing time – but it doesn’t have to be.  If you let the Glover Law Firm take care of you, you could end up like me: satisfied and on the road to recovery.
