Compensation for Your Car Accident
Unfortunately, most people will be involved in a car accident at some point. If you’ve been involved in an accident due to the negligence of another driver, you may be entitled to compensation for your pain, suffering, medical bills, lost wages and damage to your vehicle. Additionally, if the other driver was driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, you may be entitled to receive punitive damages from the other driver, which are designed to punish the other driver for his or her reckless and wanton conduct. The following are common causes of car accidents that our injury attorneys may be able to file a suit for:
- Distracted driving
- Defective parts on your automobile
- Driving under the influence
- Reckless driving
- Dangerous roadways
- Driving at excessive speeds
- Failing to obey traffic control devices
These are just some of the driving behaviors that can be grounds for our attorneys to help you seek compensation for your injuries and any damages incurred.
Why Choose Our Car Accident Lawyer?
We’re not aware of any law schools that take law students to the scene of accidents and teach them how to work an accident. Standing on an accident scene with vehicles and accident victims still on the scene is an experience that you can’t get in law school. Our founding Attorney, James Shelnutt, has substantial “hands-on” experience investigating automobile accidents and other cases. Before going to law school, Mr. Shelnutt worked as an investigator, SWAT officer, police instructor, and field training officer. During this time, he was involved in the investigation of over 2,000 accidents. He has the investigative experience that ranges from taking measurements and photographs to reconstructing how an accident occurred. There’s simply no substitute for hands-on experience.
