Investigate Beyond the Obvious
I thoroughly investigate all causes of liability in car and truck accident matters. A recent case involved a car driver who passed out and hit my client, causing serious injuries. The driver had a seizure while driving. This allowed the driver to claim an unexpected emergency, which meant that my client would not receive compensation for her medical expenses and other hardships she was facing.
I was not satisfied with this explanation and through investigation, I learned the blackouts came only after prior alcohol consumption and was likely due to alcohol withdrawal symptoms; therefore I was able to obtain a sizable settlement for my injured client.
