The immediate aftermath of any automobile accident can be an extremely confusing and challenging time for all parties involved. If a person suffers sever injuries in a car crash, the nature of the problems can be even more overwhelming. For people who are harmed as the result of another driver’s negligence, there are frequently questions about how the negligent party can be held accountable.
Need an Injury Attorney Maine represents individuals who have sustained injuries in car accidents in Augusta, Portland, Lewiston, Bangor, or any other community in the Pine Tree State. We help both residents and visitors involved in automobile collisions in Maine by investigating the crashes and using the evidence to file personal injury claims.
We understand the applicable laws in Maine for car accidents.
Maine Revised Statute Title 14 Section 752 establishes that a person has six years from the date of a car accident (known as the cause of action) to initiate a legal claim. This is known as the “statute of limitations,” and failure to file a claim before the statue of limitations expires can prevent a person from obtaining compensation from the negligent party.
Maine Revised Statute Title 29-A Section 2251 requires people to report any crash that results in bodily injury or death to a person or apparent property damage of $1,000 or more. Victims should contact a law enforcement agency to report accidents, but their next phone calls should be to a Maine personal injury lawyer.
We can represent you in your personal injury claim in order to get you maximum compensation.
At Need an Injury Attorney Maine, our firm handles a wide variety of car accident cases. We understand how daunting the prospect of legal action can be for victims following a crash, which is why our lawyers handle all of the actions that are required to be taken before legal deadlines.
Our firm pursues justice for people in many different communities in Maine, including Penobscot County, Cumberland County, York County, and many others. Insurers for negligent motorists will often attempt to contact victims and try to get them to quickly accept settlements that prevent any additional legal action.
While settlement offers can sometimes seem generous—especially for individuals who are facing massive financial problems because of car accidents—it is important to remember that insurance companies are businesses that are seeking to resolve personal injury claims for the lowest amounts possible. In many cases, proposed settlements do not fully account for the full life time of care victims require, but a Maine personal injury lawyer can fight to get you a larger award that covers all of your past, present, and future needs.
