Auto accident attorneys represent drivers, passengers, pedestrians, and other injured claimants and their families who are victims of a vehicle accident. Vehicle accidents include car, bus, truck, train, motorcycle, bike, SUV and SUV rollover, and government-vehicle accidents. When these accidents include injuries, such as loss of function, scars, traumatic brain injury, soft tissue damage, broken bones, pain and suffering and paralysis, it is recommended to contact a lawyer immediately. Auto Accident attorneys help the victims recover money and other compensation from those whose fault or negligence contributed to the motor vehicle accident including car and vehicle manufacturers, and repair shops. The negligent party typically has attorneys represent them, mostly likely from their insurance company, and it is in your best interest to have an attorney represent you. A car accident lawyer's expertise include filing insurance claims, negotiating with insurance company adjusters, starting lawsuits and arbitrations and handling court trials. A majority of car accident lawyers offer free initial consolation and work on a contingent fee basis.
