Auto Accident

You, your family, and your friends deserve the very best possible legal representation in matters involving personal injury and death. You will get that at the Law Offices of David A. Bufalini.

Automobile accidents injure and kill tens of thousands of people in this country every year. Statistically, it is the biggest risk of injury for most of us. Injuries arising from auto accidents can range from the very minor to the very severe, including loss of life. Insurance issues can be and often are very complicated. Was the at-fault driver insured? If so, what are the liability coverage limits of that policy? Is there insurance on your car? If so, what types of coverage exist under the policy, and what are the various limits of coverage? Is there coverage for medical expenses under your policy? Is there coverage for loss of income under your policy? If so, what are the specific terms of that coverage? Are there other policies that might apply? What about private health insurance? When should it apply? The job of the attorney and his trained professional staff is to identify and confirm all of the available insurance policies and open claims with each one. If there are multiple vehicles involved, the search for coverage can become even more complicated.

If the at-fault driver is uninsured, what are your legal rights then? If your insurance policy provides coverage for Uninsured Motorist claims, your insurance company will provide the coverage for the claim. If the other driver had insurance but not enough to cover the value of your claim, your Underinsured Motorist coverage will provide the coverage.

What if you are a passenger in someone else's car and get into an accident? Many people do not realize that their own automobile insurance PIP and UM/UIM coverage will be available them if their coverage is necessary to achieve full and fair compensation. An experienced hand is necessary to guide the injured person through this process.

We have handled literally thousands of auto accident claims involving just about every kind of accident, and every kind of insurance coverage issue. We handle every aspect of our clients' claims, from start to finish. We make sure that our clients remain informed from start to finish. By lifting the burden of trying to deal with professional claims adjusters off of our clients' shoulders, they can focus on their recovery, secure in the knowledge that we are looking out for their best interests, and preventing abuse by the insurance companies involved.
