When you or a family member is involved in an automobile accident, many important questions arise regarding what you should do to prevent a potentially devastating loss. Who pays for the medical bills? Who pays for the car repairs and rental expenses? Should I get a medical checkup after the accident? How do I know if the other driver has insurance or whether I have enough insurance?
Additionally, the exact cause of an auto accident is not always obvious. A minor auto accident can turn into a serious accident if the automobile is defective in design, or contains defective seatbelts, a defective gas tank, or is a defective automobile in some other respect. Our attorneys have experience in litigating defective design automobile cases against such giants as General Motors.
