Columbia Car Accident Attorney
Were you injured in a car accident?
Car accidents can cause serious injuries that require extensive medical care, including head injuries, spinal cord injuries,
brain injuries, broken bones, deep lacerations and neck injuries. If you were injured in an auto accident that wasn't your fault, contact a
Columbia personal injury attorney to discuss your rights to injury compensation. You may qualify for monetary damages to cover expenses such as:
- Medical bills
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional trauma
- Lost wages
- Home care
- Property damage
Recovering from a car accident can take months of medical treatment and could result in permanent disabilities and disfigurement. Escalating medical bills can create unanticipated financial burdens that can add stress and worry to an already difficult situation. The Sumner Law Group is an experienced personal injury firm that will fight for your right to damages. We have helped many accident victims pursue an injury claim against the person responsible for their injuries. In many cases liability is clearly known and does not need to be demonstrated. In these situations, we will quickly move forward with the preparation of a comprehensive claim that documents the full extent of your injuries.
We can help you with:
Auto Product Liability
When a car accident is caused by a defective automobile, the victims may have an auto product liability claim. Such claims generally have to do with defective automobile parts, or an inherent defect in the design of the vehicle which renders the vehicle unsafe to drive.
Dealing With Insurance Companies
When dealing with insurance companies, one has to remember that they are all for profit companies that are focused on devaluing personal injury claims. With experience working for a large insurance defense firm, Attorney Brent Sumner has insight into how these companies work and won't accept their low-ball settlement offers.
Distracted Driving Accidents
Distracted driving is a common occurrence that can be caused by any type of distraction including a cell phone, texting while driving, talking with passengers, grooming, reading while driving and eating etc. However, the most dangerous type of driver distraction involves texting while driving.
Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk driving accidents are responsible for nearly one-third of traffic fatalities every year in the United States. If you were injured by a drunk driver, we are prepared to pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
Head-on collisions are one of the most dangerous types of car accidents that can occur due to the speed involved. A head-on collision occurs when one vehicle strays into the path of an oncoming vehicle. Unfortunately, these extremely dangerous accidents are frequently caused by a steering overcorrection or driver distraction.
