Maurice C.
Exceptional Care, Service & Experience. I was in an auto accident where I was hit by a drunk driver. My case took over 3 years to settle, although I was given the opportunity to settle sooner. Case length was not because my attorneys weren't on top of it. They wanted to make sure I was physically rehabilitated and I wanted to make sure they had the time to negotiate the best outcome. In the end, I found having time on my side created the best outcome since I believe they delivered maximum results!

Speak With An Experienced Car Accident Lawyer

After being injured in a car accident, recovering adequate compensation can be a difficult task. At the Vititoe Law Group, we have the ability to develop your case and keep insurance companies honest.

Opposing insurance companies are not looking out for your best interest and it is integral that your car accident case be approached with a calculated plan that can help you recover the compensation that you deserve and are entitled to.

Our personal injury legal team will evaluate your potential case and determine whether or not you have a claim. If you do, we will then walk you through the process of filing it. We will thoroughly investigate your accident and if needed will work with experts to determine who was at fault for the harm done to you. We will work with your doctors and other medical experts to determine the full extent of your injuries and how they will affect your future.

We use our experience and knowledge to evaluate your medical records and accurately assess the total damages in your case. We assemble a team with experience and skill sets tailored to your particular situation, sometimes partnering with other law firms so you get the best representation possible.

We pursue all avenues of compensation on your behalf and handle all negotiations with insurance companies for you so that you can concentrate on the hardest job of all, getting better.

Common Car Crash Injuries

Car accidents can cause many different injuries. The injury will depend on the circumstances of your particular accident and the severity of the impact. Common injuries include brain injuries, whiplash, burn injuries, internal bleeding, spinal cord injuries, severe burns, orthopedic injuries and psychological trauma. All of these injuries are serious, and each requires prompt medical attention.

At Vititoe Law Group, we believe you should not be forced to pay for another driver's negligence. If you have been hurt in an accident, our attorneys will help you claim compensation for your medical bills, medication costs, ongoing treatment and therapy, and any emotional or psychological losses associated with the accident.

Leading Causes Of Car Accidents

There are many different circumstances that can lead to a car accident. Most car accidents are attributed to driver negligence. These include, but are not limited to:

  • Distracted driving: Cellphone use, texting while driving and reaching for dropped items can all lead to high-speed accidents.
  • Excessive speed: Speeding reduces the amount of time a driver has to react to dangers such as a pedestrian in the crosswalk.
  • Driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol: Drunk driving accidents are all too common — and all are preventable.
  • Bad weather conditions: Drivers are expected to compensate for inclement weather conditions such as rain or fog.
  • Failing to stop when required: Running a red light or stop sign is the cause of a large number of accidents each year.
  • Fatigued drivers: Drowsy driving can be just as dangerous as driving while drunk or distracted.

What You Should Know About Car Accidents

When you are involved in a car accident, you might suffer physical and emotional injuries. You might even be unable to work for a period of time or not at all. Car accident victims not only have to deal with physical and psychological trauma, but also cope with the stresses of medical bills, living expenses, and more. During this time, auto accident victims can benefit from professional advice about their legal options and what can be done to receive the justice they deserve. While every case is different, and no results can be guaranteed, there is one certainty that applies to all personal injury cases, and that's the amount of time you have to pursue a legal claim.

Under state law, there is what's known as a "statute of limitations," and this gives you a brief period of time to seek justice. The insurance companies are well aware of this and you should be too. Time is of the essence and you probably should strongly consider talking with an experienced attorney as soon as possible to learn about your rights and options.
