Types Of Compensation Available After A Car Accident

We take a risk as motorists of becoming a statistic through an injury accident every time we get behind the wheel. If you are harmed as the result of someone else's negligence in a car accident, it is important to ask for the proper level of compensation to cover all your most important needs. These needs may not be immediately obvious right after your accident. The insurance company may offer you a quick settlement, but it may not include everything essential to your recovery. If the insurance company wants you to sign a release early on, don't sign, but rather, call us right away. Insurance companies do not always volunteer what types of insurance coverage you may be entitled to claim. Medical payment coverage and underinsured motorist coverage are two types of coverage often not mentioned by insurance adjusters to unrepresented injury victims.

At Holland Injury Law, LLC, our managing partner William K. Holland has recovered more than $100 million through lawsuits and injury settlements, including car accident claims. However, he understands that your case is about more than money. It is about justice. It is about you. As your lawyer, he will seek the appropriate level of compensation for your injuries. In the courtroom or at the negotiation table, he will seek a solution that demands accountability for wrongdoers and allows you to sustain your lifestyle after your accident. William K. Holland has ensured that a negligent bar conducts a special training session annually to further train dozens of employees to identify and deal with intoxicated patrons. The bar at issue conducts training annually on the anniversary of the death of our client's daughter, who was killed by a drunk driver overserved by the bar. When a defendant got delayed prosecution from the prosecutor, we made sure that the defendant did 100 hours of community service in addition to paying her insurance policy limits.
