Reliable Representation to Recover the Compensation You Deserve

Being hurt in a car accident can be one of the scariest experiences a person has in their lifetime. It can feel even more stressful and overwhelming if the driver who struck you was uninsured or underinsured. In such instances, you might be wondering whether you would be able to recover any monetary compensation for your injuries. While these types of car accidents can be challenging, it’s important to have an attorney by your side who understands the intricacies and nuances involved in pursuing such a claim. The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP will work to investigate your case, identify all potentially liable parties, and advise you regarding your legal rights and options.

Diligent Counsel to Hold the Liable Parties Accountable

After a car accident, you may be entitled to no-fault benefits, regardless of who is to blame for the crash. While no-fault can cover a portion of your medical expenses and lost wages, it may not be enough to cover the full extent of your losses if you suffered a serious injury. If the at-fault driver does not have adequate insurance to cover a bodily injury claim, you may be able to make a claim with your own underinsured or uninsured motorist coverage. However, car crashes are complex and there may be other potential sources from which you can recover compensation, based on the specific facts of your case.

At The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP, we carefully investigate every potential avenue of liability to ensure you obtain the compensation you deserve, including the following:

  • A municipality — In the event a hazardous road condition caused the crash, the municipality responsible for maintaining the road may be held accountable for your injuries.
  • A vehicle or part manufacturer — If a part or component in the at-fault driver’s vehicle did not work properly, the manufacturer may be held liable if the defect caused the accident.
  • Other drivers on the road — Sometimes, more than one driver may have contributed to a car accident. In a multiple vehicle pileup, there may be several drivers who can be held liable for negligence.
  • The driver of the vehicle in which you were a passenger — If you were a passenger in a vehicle that was in an accident with an uninsured or underinsured motorist, the driver of that vehicle might be responsible for your injuries.

If a party other than the uninsured or underinsured driver shares any degree of fault, you can rest assured our legal team will uncover liability, build your claim, and stand up for your rights. With more than 80 years of experience handling personal injury actions, The Edelsteins, Faegenburg & Brown, LLP provide personalized time and attention in every case while working to achieve the best possible outcome.
