Don’t Let A Car Accident Turn Your World Upside Down. Put Your Case In The Right Hands.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, there are more than 35,000 fatalities and hundreds of thousands of injuries each year caused by motor vehicle accidents. You will likely be involved in a car accident at least once in your lifetime. Car wrecks can have many causes, but the most common include:
- Distracted Driving
- Drowsy Driving
- Drunk Driving
- Speeding and Aggressive Driving
- Poor Weather Conditions such as ice or fog
When car accidents happen, the injuries can be catastrophic, but even seemingly minor injuries can disrupt an injured victim’s life and turn their world upside down. In addition to the physical pain and emotional distress you experience, you may also face unexpected costs or be unable to work. As the injured victim, you may be able to take legal action in order to get reimbursed for these damages. But, navigating the legal process and dealing with insurance companies can be overwhelming. That’s where our team of experienced car accident lawyers can help. Accident victims who have an experienced car wreck lawyer on their side typically receive more than three times the compensation than those who go it alone.
Insurance companies profit by paying as little as possible to automobile policyholders and car accident victims. Never accept an offer from the insurance company without first speaking with a top-rated car crash lawyer who will protect your legal rights. As your representative, a car accident attorney at Munley Law will guide you through the legal process and help ensure that you get every dollar you deserve.
At Munley Law, we help car accident victims file personal injury lawsuits to recover compensation for:
- Medical bills
- Rehabilitation and physical therapy
- Long-term care
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
We also help our clients pursue wrongful death claims against at-fault drivers in order to get justice for their loved ones and provide future security for their families.

Car Crash Client Testimonials
We pride ourselves on providing the best service to each and every one of our clients. Below are some testimonials from real people who trusted Munley Law with their car accident cases:
“You can put your trust into Chris Munley. A couple of years ago I got into a car crash and didn’t think I would recover financially. The insurance company had denied my claim and I thought that was that. But thanks to Mr. Munley, I got the money I needed from the insurance company and I was able to get on with my life. Thank you again, Mr. Munley.”
— A Car Wreck Client
“My car accident last year kept me out of work for over a month. I was afraid of losing my job, the medical bills were piling up and the insurance company would not return my calls. I made the right decision after calling Caroline Munley. She fought the insurance company and helped me get back on my feet. I wholeheartedly endorse her.”
— Personal Injury Client
“After my car accident, I was severely injured and the insurance company refused to pay for my expenses. I knew that I needed help. I turned to Robert Munley and he fought for me like no one else has. Not only was he able to get me the money I needed to pay my medical bills but he kept me informed through the entire process. I don’t know where I would be without Robert Munley.”
— Personal Injury Client
“When I got into my terrible auto accident eight months ago, I had nowhere to turn after the insurance company denied my claim. Not only did Dan Munley help me with my case, but he kept me informed every step of the way. Thank you so much for all your work!”
— Elizabeth, a Car Accident Client
Car Wreck Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: Do I need a lawyer?
A: In some cases, particularly if the accident was minor and you suffered no injuries, car insurance should cover the damages. However, if you’re hurt, it can be difficult to get compensated for treatment, therapy, time missed from work, and more. Statistically, people represented by lawyers get three times more settlement money than people who do it themselves. So, while you don’t need a lawyer, having legal representation can ensure that you receive everything you are owed. If you’re unsure whether or not you need a lawyer, give us a call. There’s no charge for the initial consult, and we can help you determine next steps.
Q: How much does it cost to hire a car accident lawyer?
A: At Munley Law, we only collect a fee (a standard percentage of the settlement or verdict) if we win your case. This way, anyone can afford the best possible legal representation, and cost won’t prevent you from getting the justice you deserve.
Q: What can I get reimbursed for after a car crash?
A: If you’ve been hurt in a car crash, you may be compensated for:
- Medical bills
- Time missed from work
- Pain and suffering
- Diminished quality of life
- Lost earning power
Q:What should I do in the days following my wreck?
A: After a car accident, remember to:
- Request a copy of the police report
- Get a quote for the property damage from your insurance company
- Keep a record of all medical appointments, prescriptions, diagnoses, test results, treatment, and any pain you experience.
- Keep track of all expenses related to your accident
- Note any time you were forced to miss from work
- Never accept a settlement offer from an insurance carrier unless you have consulted with a lawyer
Q: What is the difference between full and limited tort?
A: The tort option on your auto insurance policy determines your ability to sue the at-fault party after a car accident. If you have full tort, you may pursue compensation regardless of the severity of your injuries. Limited tort, on the other hand, limits your right to sue. If you have limited tort, you may only sue the at-fault party for the cost of your medical bills, but not for pain and suffering (pain and suffering often make up the bulk of a personal injury case). However, there are some exceptions:
- If you are hit by a drunk driver
- If you are a pedestrian who was hit by a vehicle
- If the defendant’s vehicle is registered out of state
- If you were riding in a commercial vehicle
- If you were riding with a resident relative or spouse who has full tort and you were injured as a passenger in their vehicle
- If the defendant is uninsured
- If your accident resulted in death, permanent severe impairment of a bodily function, or disfigurement
Under the above circumstances, you would effectively “breach” limited tort and enjoy the benefits of full tort.
