Assertive Legal Advocacy For Delaware Car Accident Victims
A car accident can change your life in an instant. The physical and financial consequences are often overwhelming, and victims may be left wondering how to pick up the pieces.
If you have been hurt in a car accident caused by another driver’s negligence, you do not need to face these burdens alone. The experienced attorneys at Pratcher Krayer LLC will be by your side. Our firm provides effective and assertive legal advocacy to injury victims throughout Delaware.
Investigating The Crash And Its Cause
Police reports often provide important evidence, but they should not be the final word on the crash. As soon as you hire us, we begin our own investigation into the crash, determining its cause and who was at fault. In Delaware, car accidents are frequently caused by:
- Distracted or inattentive driving
- Fatigued or drowsy driving
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs
- Speeding, tailgating and aggressive driving
- Failure to keep a lookout
- Failure to adjust driving to weather and road conditions
Our attorneys were both born and raised in Delaware. We have a detailed knowledge of the state’s roads and highways, as well as the driver behaviors that cause or contribute to crashes. As experienced trial attorneys, we know what it takes to prove that the other driver’s negligence was the cause of the accident and your injuries.
Assessing And Documenting Your Losses
One of the most common questions we receive from prospective clients is: “What is my case worth?” There is no standard dollar figure for a car accident. Instead, compensation is based on what you have lost or suffered as a result of the crash. When we take your case, we will work tirelessly to document damages, including:
- Medical bills and treatment (current and estimated future costs)
- Lost wages from time spent unable to work
- Permanent or long-term disability (perhaps stemming from paralysis or a traumatic brain injury)
- Damage to your vehicle and other property
- Pain and suffering
In order to maximize your compensation, it is critical to obtain thorough medical records, evidence of lost wages (and estimated future lost wages), and repair or replacement costs for your damaged/destroyed property. Damages like pain and suffering are not directly tied to an economic loss, but they can nonetheless be calculated fairly.
We Take Care Of The Details While You Focus On Recovery
We can do nearly all of the legal preparation and financial calculations on your behalf, leaving you free to focus on your health and your loved ones. As your attorneys, we will also assume all communications with insurers. That way, you do not need to worry about high-pressure interviews or saying something that could unintentionally damage your claim.
Both of our attorneys have backgrounds in insurance defense. We understand the tactics insurers use to deny or limit claims, and we don’t fall for them. If the insurance company isn’t willing to offer a settlement that meets your needs and respects what you’ve been through, we won’t hesitate to take the case to trial.
