If you were involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault and subsequently suffered injuries, your first two steps should be to seek medical and legal help, in that order. You can get an attorney to increase your chances at recovering compensation, as they will preserve the proper evidence and stay within court compliance.
At Van Law Firm, our car accident lawyers have helped hundreds of victims get their lives back on track, and we’re always open to new cases.

The Various Ways We Can Help
For most crash victims, expenses start piling up the moment an accident occurs. We will track all your current damages, as well as the costs you’re likely to incur in the future. By doing so, we are more than prepared once the negotiations with the insurance companies start. Everything from your medical bills, lost wages, and psychological damages, such as pain and suffering, will all be factored into your potential settlement.
We will also attempt to assess the impact your injuries will have on your quality of life moving forward. Any chronic or permanent ailments, such as paralysis, cancer, or disfiguring scars will warrant ongoing treatment. If you are a parent or guardian, we’ll be sure to note the impact your injuries have had on your family as well.
Once we’re confident a fair estimate has been tallied, that’s when the negotiating process begins. Even if there are numerous parties involved in proceedings, we will be sure to seek compensation from each party responsible for your damages.
No obligation consultations are always free.

Remembering Comparative Fault Laws
As is the case with all legal fields, different states have different rules and regulations regarding personal injury claims. However, many states have adopted at least some form of comparative fault laws. This means that fault can be attributed to all parties involved on a percentage basis, so long as the figures total 100% in the end.
States differ on fault limits — some jurisdictions will bar the party with the highest percentage of fault from recovering compensation, whereas others have no such limitations. The reason why all claimants should keep these laws in mind is that they have a direct impact on your potential settlement. Any percentage of fault assigned to you is deducted in equal amounts from your damages (25% fault = 25% deduction).
To give an example, if you were awarded $100,000, but the court found you to be 20% at fault, you would then take home $80,000 instead. Your car accident lawyer from our firm can help you understand how comparative fault applies in your case.
Common Car Accident Injuries We Can Help You Get Compensation For
Both drivers and passengers can suffer serious injuries in a car accident, no matter how severe the damage to the car. Some injuries our car accident attorneys have recovered compensation for include:
- Cuts and lacerations
- Broken bones
- Internal damage to organs and tissue
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Paralysis and amputation injuries
After a car accident, you should seek medical attention to get treatment for your injuries. Even if you don’t feel like you’ve been injured, going to the doctor for an evaluation can help you identify injuries you didn’t notice and better connect your injuries to your car accident — this is vital to your personal injury claim.

These guys are amazing. Helped me throughout the process. Always there when I need help. Inititailly called a law firm (the one that has lots of ads on the radio), but they declined my case. Van Law Firm accepted my case without a second thought! Kudos to Daniel, my case manager, and Amanda who expedited my payment process. Highly recommended.Milby Mags
Got in an accident at the beginning of the year and they have been awesome, especially with it being my first accident and me being like this. They have been very communicated, stayed in contact with me the whole time, giving me updates when there were any and even when there weren’t and answered any question I had. I would recommend them to anyone. Everyone I have talked to there has been very friendly. I would give them a 10 out of 10.Ethan Gullet
They made sure that my insurance company covered what I paid for them to which included the gap for my car that was totaled. My medical costs were taken care of and reduced substantially so I was able to get more on my settlement. My case manager, Will Garcia, was always helpful in assisting me and answering any questions I had. They really did an amazing job with my case. I would definitely recommend them to anyone in need of this type of legal help. Most lawyers do not help you with the recovery of the car and rental etc. They are amazing.Teresa Cuthbertson
