Car Accident Personal Injury Cases in Vermont
The immediate aftermath of any automobile accident can be an extremely confusing and challenging time for all parties involved. If a person suffers severe injuries in a car crash, the nature of the problems can be even more overwhelming. For people who are harmed as the result of another driver’s negligence, there are frequently questions about how the negligent party can be held accountable.
Need an Injury Lawyer Vermont represents individuals who have sustained injuries in car accidents in South Burlington, St. Johnsbury, Burlington, Shelburne, Colchester, Swanton, Winooski, Bennington, Northfield, Barre, Brattleboro, St. Albans, Montpelier, Milton, Lyndon, Rutland, Hartford, St. Albans, Rockingham, Newport, Williston, Morristown, Vergennes, Middlebury, Waterbury, Essex, Jericho, Barre, or any other community in the Pine Tree State. We help both residents and visitors involved in automobile collisions in Vermont by investigating the crashes and using the evidence to file personal injury claims.
We understand the applicable laws in Vermont for car accidents.
Title 12 Vermont Statute § 512 places a three-year statute of limitations (time limit) on personal injury claims arising from car accidents. If a person does not file a claim within this time period, the court will generally refuse to hear his or her case and he or she will be unable to hold the negligent party legally accountable.
Under Title 23 Vermont Statute § 1129, drivers involved in motor vehicle accidents involving personal injury or damage of more than $3,000 are required to file written reports that must be mailed within 72 hours.
We can represent you in your personal injury claim in order to get you maximum compensation.
At Need an Injury Lawyer Vermont, our firm handles a wide variety of car accident cases. We understand how daunting the prospect of legal action can be for victims following a crash, which is why our lawyers handle all of actions that are required to be taken before legal deadlines.
Our firm pursues justice for people in many different communities in Vermont, including Caledonia County, Chittenden County, Essex County, Rutland County, Grand Isle County, Washington County, Lamoille County, Windsor County, Orleans County, Franklin County, Orange County, Windham County, Addison County, Bennington County, and many others. Insurers for negligent motorists will often attempt to contact victims and try to get them to quickly accept settlements that prevent any additional legal action.
While settlement offers can sometimes seem generous—especially for individuals who are facing massive financial problems because of car accidents—it is important to remember that insurance companies are businesses that are seeking to resolve personal injury claims for the lowest amounts possible. In many cases, proposed settlements do not fully account for the full lifetime of care victims require, but a Vermont personal injury lawyer can fight to get you a larger award that covers all of your past, present, and future needs.
