Auto and Vehicle Accident Injuries

Every day in the U.S., lives are lost, and many people are injured on our roadways due to auto accidents. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimated that there were over 37,000 fatalities in 2017 in vehicle accidents. Millions of others were seriously injured. While some accidents are just that, accidents, many are preventable. If you are injured or lose a loved one in an auto accident in Atlanta, you need to know your rights.

Car accident cases are typically governed by the law of negligence, or “the failure to use reasonable care under the circumstances.” A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for any damages, either to a person or property, caused by his or her negligence. Dwayne L. Brown works with victims of auto accidents who have been injured due to another driver’s negligence. He helps them seek compensation to cover medical costs, lost income and other expenses, as well as damages for pain and suffering.

Do You Need an Attorney?

Many people who are injured in vehicle accidents assume their injuries and costs will be covered by the insurance of the at-fault driver. While this may be true to an extent, it is unwise to assume that they will pay the full amount needed to cover all the costs. If it is a small injury that only required a few stitches or quick treatment at the ER, it may not be necessary to hire an attorney. However, when there will be multiple doctor visits, treatments, time lost from work and various other expenses, consulting an attorney could be in your best interest.

Insurance companies want to pay out as little as possible on claims. It is common for the insurance company of the at-fault party to offer a quick settlement to the injured person in hopes they will take the money and not hire a personal injury attorney. You may think the offer seems reasonable, but there may be costs that you have not considered or have not incurred yet. If you take an early settlement directly from the insurance company, you may not be eligible to seek more compensation later if complications with your injury arise.

The best choice, if you are seriously injured in an auto accident, is to talk to Dwayne L. Brown. He offers a no-obligation consultation for those wondering if they should hire an attorney for their injury claim. He will give you honest, free advice on your options so you can make the right choice for your situation.

Types of Injury Vehicle Accident Lawsuits

There are many types of personal injury vehicle accident lawsuits that result from negligent driving. The injured party, known as the plaintiff, is required to prove that the defendant was negligent, the negligence caused the accident and the accident caused the plaintiff’s injuries. It is not just the driver of the other vehicle that can be found negligent. The company the driver works for and other entities may also be found responsible and liable for injuries caused by the accident. Some of the types of vehicle accident lawsuits Dwayne L. Brown handles include:

    Rafiq A.

    My family and I met Attorney Dwayne Brown after the unfortunate accident involving my niece. Attorney Brown did an exceptional job representing my family. He was the consummate professional, and treated my family with the utmost dignity and respect. As a result of his representation, my family was able to achieve a substantial settlement in our case. Although we obviously did not get our loved back, we are prayerful that we met Attorney Brown. My family would highly recommend Attorney Brown to anyone in a similar situation.
