Automobile Accidents

Millions of auto accidents wreck vehicles, property, and lives each year.

If the accident is minor, the parties can exchange insurance information, file a police report, and get on with their lives. But in a serious accident where personal injury occurs, loss of mobility, loss of income, medical expenses, rehabilitation, and mental suffering can follow.
