If you’ve been involved in a car accident, you’re not alone. Unfortunately, these terrifying events happen to nearly everyone at some point in their life, and they often cause injuries and death. According to an early estimate by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an estimated 32,675 people lost their lives in motor vehicle traffic crashes in 2014.

Car crashes are traumatic and can be devastating. If you are a survivor, your injuries will most likely have effects that are far-reaching, in your personal life and the lives of your family members. It may put you out of work for some time, cutting off your source of income. You may have hefty medical bills that you will have to pay.

We have the expertise, resources, and the diligence you need.

Following a car accident, it’s essential that a thorough investigation be conducted. Any physical evidence, such as the vehicles involved in the accident, needs to be preserved so that they can be inspected and photographed. Any witnesses should be contacted immediately while their memories are still fresh. The accident scene and any injuries should also be photographed. You can be sure that the insurance company will have lawyers and investigators working for them; this is why you need an experienced personal injury legal team behind you.

Because of their complexity, automobile accident cases often require the expertise of professionals outside the legal field. Throughout the years, our attorneys have developed a network of medical, accident reconstruction, and vocational rehabilitation experts to help us prepare and present our clients’ cases, which allows us to give the highest level of service to each client.

Car accident injuries can surface months and sometimes years down the road.

It doesn’t matter the size or severity of the crash. Big or small—every crash has the potential to have large effects. Even a seemingly minor accident, like a fender-bender or a rear-end collision, can cause more damage than you might imagine. It is important to remember that just because you can’t see an injury doesn’t mean it isn’t there.

This is why you need the expertise of an experienced car accident attorney on your side. It is important that you do not sign anything without knowing exactly what you are signing. Once you settle for a certain amount in compensation, that is it. You won’t be able to receive any more after that. Oftentimes, however, additional injuries surface months and sometimes years down the road.

An experienced Alabama attorney, such as the ones at Martinson & Beason, P.C., can help you to know when to settle and when to take a case to trial if the other party is not offering a settlement that will cover the full extent of your damages. You have enough to worry about right now; you should not have to make these decisions by yourself. That is what we are here to help you do. Let us apply our expertise for you so that you can focus on recovering.

Don’t assume fault until you know the facts.

One of the main things that hold people back from seeking legal help and financial compensation for their car accident-related damages and injuries is the ever-plaguing question: “Who was at fault?”

When you are in a car wreck, everything happens so fast, it is so easy to get confused and mix up the facts in your mind. Too many people begin to think, “Maybe I was to blame after all…” As car accident attorneys, we at Martinson & Beason, P.C. implore you to seek legal counsel before you blame yourself unfairly. There are many factors that could have contributed to your accident, such as vehicle defects, poor weather conditions, or hazardous road conditions.

Never assume responsibility before you know all the facts. It is also very possible that multiple people are at fault. Even if you are partially responsible for the accident, you may still be able to recover compensation for a portion of your damages and injuries. This is why it is critical that you don’t assume anything until you talk with a car accident attorney.
