Car WRECKS

Cars are dangerous and everyday thousands of people are seriously injured in car wrecks. Lives are forever changed when tons of steel collide. After the injuries, the worst part can be the way the at fault driver’s insurance company will treat you and minimize your injuries and loss of enjoyment of life.

The insurance industry employs thousands of lawyers and claims analysts whose only job is to try and minimize your injuries and your claim. You need a lawyer who is willing to fight the insurance company and take your claim to trial if necessary.

At Davis, Johnson & Kallal we do not take cases unless we are willing to take them all the way to trial. We will fight to insure that you receive the fair compensation that you deserve to help you put your life back together.

WHAT TO DO AFTER A wreck

If you have any concern at all that you are injured, then seek immediate medical attention. If you wait to go to the doctor, then you can be assured that the insurance company will try and blame you for your injury. They will argue that you could not have been hurt in the collision because you waited four days to see a doctor, even though people often wait up to seven days to see a doctor after an orthopedic injury. Don’t give them the ammo to attack you, see a doctor immediately if you think you might be injured.

Review the police report and make sure it is accurate. An incorrect or incomplete police report can make it harder to prove your case. In a worst case scenario, it can make it seem like you were the at fault driver instead of the victim. Always make sure the police report is accurate.

Write down everything the other driver said to you after the collision, so you do not have to worry about forgetting what they said. Often at fault drivers will admit to speeding or texting or other bad behaviour at the scene of the accident but then will later change their story once they are required to help defend the claim by their insurance company.

Follow your doctor’s treatment advice. If you are not getting better ask for a second opinion or visit another doctor, but do not just stop medical treatment against your doctor’s advice. If you do this, then it is guaranteed that it will be held against you and lower the value of your claim.

Motorcycle crashes

Motorcycles represent great freedom and they give an unparalleled connection to the majestic wide open spaces and mountains of Wyoming, but their riders are particularly vulnerable to inattentive and distracted drivers.

These drivers can cause catastrophic injuries to riders even at low speeds. Vehicle versus motorcycle collisions often leaves riders seriously injured with life long consequences. The insurance companies do everything they can to minimize these claims and attempt to blame the riders. They try and say it is the riders fault for even being on a motorcycle.
