Car Accidents and Driver Negligence

At the heart of many car accidents on our highways and byways is driver negligence, which can take any of the following forms:

Car accidents are very often the result of these categories of driver negligence.

It’s hard to find a lawyer like Atty Jon Berman. I was lucky I did.

Atty Jon Berman is a highly skilled and competent attorney. You can tell he cares about his clients and their families. He worked through the holiday and kept in constant contact with myself and my son. We had no experience with any legal issues before and frankly we were scared. When I called his office in a panic at 2am and was told I would get a call back at 7am the next morning. Atty Berman called and heard us out with patience: He was honest and walked us through each step. Jon Berman went into the court room and he fought against the charges and got it dismissed. No charges, no follow up! I am beyond grateful to him for his service and his caring attitude. I would in a heart beat recommend him to anyone that needs a skilled attorney. It’s hard to find a lawyer like Atty Jon Berman. I was lucky I did.

Common Car Accident Damages

You have been injured by another motorist’s negligence, and in order to fully recover, you need compensation that addresses your damages in their entirety, including property damage to your vehicle.

Your Medical Costs

The medical costs associated with a serious car accident are often considerable, including:

A serious injury can lead to secondary health complications that require ongoing medical attention and increased expense, which is why it’s so important that your car accident case adequately assess your ongoing medical costs.

Your Lost Hours and Earnings

As you recover from the injuries you’ve suffered, it is very common to miss hours on the job and subsequently experience a downturn in pay. While your pile of medical bills continues to grow, you’re also earning less, which makes the matter that much grimmer. If the injuries you’ve sustained interfere with your ability to successfully do your job, it can lead to a loss in earning potential that translates to considerable financial loss into your future. Finally, if the trajectory of your career has been altered, the effects can be as emotionally challenging as they are financially.

Your Pain and Suffering

Being injured in a violent car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence tends to be terrifying and can lead to severe physical pain, which can have a toll on both your physical and mental state. You might also experience a host of emotional difficulties, including:

The unfortunate irony here is that these consequences can serve to keep your support system at arm’s length – just when you need the people in that support system the most. This pain and suffering component of your car accident claim can be significant and should never be underestimated.

[Jon] was the only driving force keeping us sane during this time.

There is such a wide range in terms of professionalism and competency in the world of lawyers, and one doesn't know who to trust half the time. Couple that with being under a lot of stress because of your legal situation, and you have to let go of control at some point and put your trust into another person to help you through this legal battle.

Such was the case with Attorney John Berman. I am so glad I did. Not only was John professional, he was extremely knowledgeable and of great help through our legal troubles. He went above and beyond his role as Attorney and was the only driving force keeping us sane during this time. He saw everything through to 100% completion, and didn't miss a single detail. Highly recommended. He's one of the good ones.

Negotiating with the Insurance Company

You were injured by another driver’s negligence, which means that you are going to be dealing with that driver’s insurance company. While you may find it comforting to know that the insurance company is on the job, this isn’t something that you should rely upon. The fact of the matter is that the insurance company is far more interested in turning a profit than it is in compensating you fairly for the full range of damages you’ve suffered. Be on the lookout for all of the following tactics in the insurance company’s arsenal:

You are better off ignoring the insurance company’s strong-arm tactics and allowing your formidable car accident attorney to skillfully negotiate with them on your behalf.
