A message from Benjamin R. Lawson: “It’s difficult and often prohibitively costly to fight insurance companies on your own. We want to be your voice, and we want your voice to be heard. I’ve seen clients who have been offered a tenth or even a hundredth of what a case is worth. We’ve been able to secure settlements for our clients that compensate them fully for their injuries. And when the insurance companies won’t settle, we have the litigation experience to force them to go to trial.”

Motor Vehicle Accidents

Motor Vehicle Accidents

“The other driver’s insurance is giving me the run-around. They told me they’ll only cover my deductible.”

Motor vehicle accidents are very common. When a motor vehicle accident results in an injury, it is reasonable to expect the at-fault driver’s insurance to cover the costs of those injuries. However, insurance companies do not always agree to cover the full amount to which injured parties are entitled. At Lawson & O’Brien, P.C. we have negotiated settlements upwards of ten times greater than an insurance company’s original offer. If you’ve been injured in a motor vehicle accident, whether it involves a drunk driver, a negligent driver, a hit and run, or a distracted driver, you should contact our office as soon as possible. There is a statutory time limit during which you must file a lawsuit in a motor vehicle accident case, so if you’ve been injured call our office for a free case evaluation and consultation.
