Why Do You Need a Wilkes-Barre Driver Error Lawyer?

Every driver on the road must operate their vehicle by the law and exercise reasonable care to prevent car accidents and injuries to others. However, all people are prone to errors behind the wheel. From neglecting to check a blind spot to driving too fast for conditions, a mistake on the road can prove deadly. 

If you have been forced to deal with the consequences of another driver’s reckless actions, you should not have to deal with the aftermath alone. You can hold the other driver accountable for the reckless or careless errors that caused the crash. By filing a personal injury lawsuit, you may recover compensation for your medical bills, therapy expenses, lost wages, and additional pain and suffering. To receive fair compensation, you will need the help of an experienced Wilkes-Barre personal injury lawyer. 

A Wilkes-Barre car accident lawyer from Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys will review the details of your case for free and advise you of your legal rights and options for recovering damages. As your legal team, we will investigate your accident as necessary, review police accident reports, review medical records, consult experts, negotiate with the insurance company, and bring your case to trial if an acceptable settlement cannot be reached.  

Do I Need a Lawyer If the Other Driver Was At Fault?

Don’t settle for less than what you are rightfully owed. We will help you recover reimbursement for your medical bills, future medical treatment, lost wages, lost earning power, altered quality of life, and pain and suffering.

How Can I Prove the Other Driver’s Actions Caused the Accident?

After an accident, the police will be called to the scene to create an accident report. Police may or may not issue tickets or citations to the party at fault on the scene. Also, certain vehicles now have electronic data recorders that contain data leading up to the time of the crash and can be used to prove the other driver was speeding or failing to use a turn signal. Eyewitness accounts can also help prove your case in court and are important in establishing guilt.

If you believe the at-fault driver may have been distracted at the time of the crash, we may need to obtain cell phone records and other forms of digital evidence as well. An experienced car accident attorney will be familiar with the best way to gather evidence to convince the court. We will review the official accident report, gather witness statements, and conduct electronic discovery to identify and prove the errors that led to your crash. We will also work with board-certified physicians and medical experts to calculate the full cost of your treatment and ensure you receive proper compensation.  

What If I Was a Passenger in a Single-Vehicle Crash?

If you were a passenger in a car accident where no other vehicle was involved, you may still be able to recover damages. If driver error contributed to your crash, you can seek compensation for your injuries from the driver’s insurance company as well as your own. A Wilkes-Barre car accident lawyer at Munley Law Personal Injury Attorneys can review your accident and your injuries and help you determine the best path to compensation. 

What information do I need to help prove my claim?

The first thing you should do after a severe car accident is to seek medical treatment. Once stable and working towards recovery, you can begin collecting the necessary documentation. You should obtain a copy of the police report from the accident, including the other driver’s name, license, and insurance information. If other vehicles were involved, you should get their information as well. Photographs or videos of the wreckage can help establish a claim, and you should also take pictures of the injuries you sustained. Medical records can be used to convince the court of the severe injuries the other driver caused and the losses you suffered as a result. Keep a careful record of your medical treatment and bills, as well as any time you missed from work due to the crash.  All of this information will be useful to your lawyer.
