Dealing With Vehicle-related Accidents
When an accident leaves you or a loved one injured, you usually must deal with representatives from an insurance company, not the person who caused the accident. Sadly, insurance companies are sometimes less concerned with coverage for individuals, and more concerned with keeping as much money for their shareholders as possible. This means that they’ll usually fight to give you the smallest settlement they can, just to make your claim go away.
A qualified personal injury attorney can stand in your corner and fight for your rights. The personal injury attorneys at Nuñez & Associates know how to negotiate with insurance companies and fight to get the compensation you deserve. Our team will work diligently to make sure you are fairly compensated for your injuries, however they occurred.

Auto Accidents & Personal Injury Claims
Auto accidents are generally the largest type of personal injury claims for most personal injury law offices. With nearly 255 million registered passenger vehicles in the U.S., a large number of accidents is to be expected. Data from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety (IIHS) show that 3 million people suffer injuries from a car accident each year. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation Fatality Analysis Reporting System (FARS), 29,989 people suffered fatal injuries from auto accidents in 2014.
To recover compensation for injuries sustained in an auto accident, you have to show that the defendant driver was careless or negligent. All motorists have a duty to exercise ordinary care when driving a motor vehicle and to be prudent on the roadway. Drivers breach or violate that duty of care when they speed, make unsafe lane changes, run red lights or are otherwise careless. If the injured driver can show the accident caused the injuries sustained, then damages need to be proved so the parties can reach an appropriate settlement, or the case can be taken to trial.
There are cases where additional parties may have been a factor in the accident, such as a design defect in the roadway, poor or negligent road construction, an equipment failure such as steering or braking, or a defective auto part.
Retain a law firm that has a proven record of success in all types of motor vehicle accidents, can handle all your insurance and claim issues, and which has appropriate and just compensation for its clients over the years.
