Collision injuries can be devastating; and holding insurance companies and individuals accountable can be difficult.

Medical expenses for treatment, therapy, and medication can be very expensive. You may not be able to work and lose wages. Other financial losses from the accident can put you in a precarious position. An experienced injury law firm fights to protect you long-term from these damaging effects that accidents can cause.

The knowledgeable attorneys of Bagby Law can protect you from an unfair settlement, and help ensure that you receive the compensation you need, even if your accident was caused by an uninsured motorist.

Car Accident Injuries

One of the most common types of injuries sustained in car accidents is whiplash. This occurs when the muscles of the neck are extended beyond their normal range of motion. The pressure from seatbelts, airbags and impact with other parts of the car can also cause serious fractures.

Texting While Driving

The most common form of distracted driving, and the most dangerous, is texting while driving. Texting while driving can be extremely dangerous. By doing so, drivers are taking their eyes, hands and their cognitive functions off of the road.

Drunk driving injuries

One of the biggest known hazards on the road is that of drunk drivers. When intoxicated by too much alcohol or under the influence of drugs, these drivers simply do not possess the cognitive ability to handle the rigors of the road. They can easily doze, can become distracted and just do not have the ability to react to the changing conditions. Have you been injured by a drunk driver? Get us involved and rest assured knowing that we will fight for you.

Rear-End Accident

In almost every case, this type of accident is the fault of the driver following behind. It commonly results from tailgating and aggressive driving, as well as drivers who become distracted and fail to brake in enough time to avoid the vehicle in front of them.

Driver Distraction

Other than texting, there are many ways that a driver can become distracted. Eating, putting on makeup, talking and the like can all distract a driver to the point that an accident happens.

Head-On Accident

Although rare, these accidents can be deadly. These can be the result of drinking and driving, falling asleep at the wheel or swerving to avoid something in the road.

Why Do I Need an Injury Lawyer?

When an individual gets injured in an accident as a result of a negligent act, it falls on the negligent party’s insurance provider to determine to what extent they will cover the costs of any medical or injury related expenses.  From the time the insurance company is notified of a claim, they are building their case to pay you as little as possible. Every statement will be used to accomplish their goals. In order to avoid the serious threat of under-compensation for your injuries, it is essential that you hire a knowledgeable attorney that will fight to ensure all your needs, present and future, are addressed in your claim.

Why do you need a personal injury attorney?

Engaging an experienced personal injury attorney from the beginning can be crucial for the outcome of your case. As soon as you call Bagby Law, our team will begin the investigation process, uncovering if the other driver failed to comply with the applicable traffic rules. These initial consultations are so important because the at-fault party’s insurance will be doing the same thing. You want a lawyer that will be able to gather information, understand police reports, and medical records. The more time that goes by, the easier it is for important facts to be overlooked, missed or even erased. We are available 24/7 and ready to assist you with your call.

What exactly is negligence?

Negligence is one of the most important aspects of a personal injury case. In fact, it is what an entire claim is based on. Negligence is what causes the accident you were injured in in the first place. A person can be is negligent when he fails to act in a way that a reasonably careful person would act in the same situation.  In the legal field, proving negligence has four aspects. First, the individual accused of negligence must have owed the injured individual a duty of care. Second, they must have violated that duty. Third, that breach directly caused the injury. Fourth and finally, that the damage from the injury is provable. If all four elements are met, an individual may be accused of negligence.

While every case has its unique circumstances, our attorneys are confident that they have the skill and know-how to secure the compensation your injuries demand. The costs of an exceptional personal injury pale in comparison to the overwhelming hardships you would have to endure without adequate compensation. With our firm you owe us nothing should our handling of your case not be successful.

Should I try to reach a settlement?

When you try to reach a settlement for your personal injury case, you are essentially making an agreement before going to trial. This is done when one party, either the defendant or the insurance company, offers a certain monetary payment in hopes of avoiding going to court. Reaching a settlement can be beneficial in some situations. However, you must be wary of individuals and insurance companies that are trying to lowball you. If you are not sure if the settlement that is offered to you is appropriate, you should hire an attorney. A legal professional will be able to help you determine whether or not you would receive full coverage by accepting their offer.
