A person who carelessly operates a vehicle may be required to pay any damages caused by that carelessness, either to other persons or to their property. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise “reasonable care under the circumstances.” Failure to use reasonable care is the basis in most lawsuits for damages caused by an automobile accident.

Common Questions

What should I do if I have sustained personal injuries in an accident?

You should immediately receive medical care for your injuries. Second, you should document the incident by taking photographs and notifying the police, and then call an attorney.

What should I do if the insurance company for the other driver contacts me?

It is advisable to contact your attorney first. Anything you say to the insurance company could be used against you later. The insurance companies usually will offer you a settlement far below what a skilled and experienced attorney would be able to recover for you.

In our $8 million and $15 million victories, the opposing counsel tried to have us settle at much lower amounts. Getting the highest possible award for a client takes patience and confidence in your legal team.

How do I know the “value” of my injuries?

This will depend on the extent of your injuries, medical bills, lost income, and suffering. One of Selinger Law Group’s keys to success is hiring experienced medical consultants to help juries fully understand the impact of your traumatic injuries.

What is the Statute of Limitations for suing for Personal Injuries?

It varies from state to state. In many states, it is 3 years, but in others, it could be as little as one year. Selinger Law Group has set the standard in protecting the rights of the injured. In the last two years, we have recovered more than $25 million for accident victims, which include a landmark $8 million victory for a car accident paralysis victim against Chrysler Corporation and $15 million for a construction worker’s injury that resulted in brain damage.

If you have been injured, seek the most experienced and capable legal representation. We hope to help you protect your rights and recover adequate compensation for your severe injuries.
