Motor Vehicle Accidents

Pierce & Thornton will handle all aspects of your motor vehicle accident claim from the initial investigation and preservation of evidence to the recovery of compensation from all available sources. We will conduct a thorough investigation of your motor vehicle accident claim. Interviews of witnesses and investigating police officers, photographs of the vehicles involved in the accident, as well as photographs and diagrams of the accident scene and roadway are necessary to preserve vital evidence for your claim. All available insurance will be explored to insure that all sources of coverage are paid to you. There are many sources of coverage available when someone causes an accident including the other driver's policy, members of the other driver's household's policies, employers' or lessor's policies and your own policy, even if you did not cause the accident. Unfortunately, insurance adjusters are not required by law to advise you of all coverage available and they seldom do so. We will find the coverage.

Having a full understanding of all medical issues related to your injuries is essential to maximizing your recovery. Pierce & Thornton will obtain your medical records and bills and organize and summarize them for the proper presentation of your claim to the insurance adjuster or at trial if necessary. More importantly, Pierce & Thornton will discuss the nature and extent of your injuries, all past and possible future treatment and any resulting disabilities with your treating physicians so we can communicate effectively with the insurance company or jury about your claim. By obtaining cooperation and understanding from your physicians, we can maximize your chances of obtaining a full and fair recovery for your injuries. We will also fully investigate all economic loss in addition to your medical bills including past lost wages, future lost wages and any reduction in your earning capacity. We will vigorously pursue each and every element of damages available to you.

If you or a loved one have been involved in a motor vehicle crash, we urge you to contact the attorneys at Pierce & Thornton so that our firm can begin investigating and preparing your case for settlement or if necessary, trial.
