A Lafayette law firm that helps you get justice
Side-impact or broadside crashes - also known as T-bone collisions - can be frightening and can cause serious injuries. Often, your medical expenses keep rising and you may be unable to work for weeks or months or even longer. Meanwhile, the insurance company may be fighting your claim. Don't give up. The car accident attorneys at Vaughan & Vaughan can help you fight back.
These types of car accidents often happen at intersections, where there are many vehicles making turns at the same time. In a T-Bone accident, the front of a vehicle hits the side of another, sometimes at high speed. Drivers and passengers can be left seriously hurt. Sometimes, the injuries suffered in these types of accidents are fatal.
Accident scenes at intersections can be confusing. This can make it difficult to prove that another driver caused the accident that resulted in your injury. Insurance companies know this, which is why they often dispute claims for injuries suffered in T-bone accidents. They may even try to pin the blame on you to avoid their responsibility.
Experience that gets results
That's why you need an experienced attorney on your side to fight for your rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve for your injuries. We know the tactics insurance companies use to try to avoid paying what they owe. And we have a long record of getting results for the injured through negotiated settlements and jury verdicts.
As your attorney, we can investigate your accident to find out what really happened. We regularly gather evidence and review all documentation, including police reports and medical records. We search for witnesses and routinely interview them ourselves. In addition, we often consult with accident reconstruction experts.
We then build the strongest case we can to get the best possible outcome. We determine the true amount of damages you have suffered. This includes all past and future medical expenses related to your injuries, as well as lost wages while you were unable to work. Other damages may include pain and suffering, disability and emotional distress.
