AMARILLO AUTO ACCIDENT ATTORNEY
OFFERS FREE CONSULTATIONS: 806-374-4024

Amarillo Auto Accident Attorney, Jesse Quackenbush of Quackenbush Law Firm has already achieved a 2017 wrongful death settlement for one family guaranteeing them a $3.2 million dollar net recovery AFTER attorney fees and expenses.  The case involved a Fortune Global 500 Corporation who’s undertrained employees caused an 18 wheeler accident and horrific explosion.  According to Quackenbush, the multi-national corporation agreed to settle with his clients without the need for protracted litigation because he was prepared to fight.

Amarillo Auto Accident Attorney, Jesse Quackenbush started his career in 1988 taking Auto Accident Wrongful Death cases to jury trials.  He didn’t settle cheap and the other side learned quickly that they could “pay now” or “pay later” but they would “pay full damages.” According to Quackenbush, many personal injury attorneys are sell-out artists and refuse to do the hard work necessary to obtain large verdicts and settlements.  They refuse to spend their own money on experts like engineers, accident reconstructionists, economists, life care planners and pathologists.  In most wrongful death cases, in Quackenbush’s opinion, it’s legal malpractice for an attorney not to hire experts such as these.

Any attorney can put an ad in the yellow pages or on Google, but it takes a real fighter to win hundreds of  jury trials, like Quackenbush has done over the last 29 years.

When Quackenbush Law Firm gets a call from a potential client who is in need of an Amarillo Auto Accident Attorney, Mr. Quackenbush moves into action immediately by going to the scene to photograph the evidence. He then photographs all physical injuries and property damage.  Finally, he takes witness statements from any witnesses to the accident.  If necessary, our accident reconstruction team is called in to measure and analyze all aspect of the scene.  Typically, these experts charge our firm $5,000.00 for their initial report. Next, we make sure our clients are receiving reasonable and necessary medical care. At Quackenbush Law Firm we have a network of healthcare providers who we work with on a daily basis and are ready to help you. Many times, attorneys simply leave their clients hanging with no direction or assistance finding healthcare.  If the client has no money or health insurance he/she ends up suffering and his/her claim suffers as well.  Insurance companies routinely deny claims if the accident victim has not treated promptly after an accident.  Some of the specialists we send our clients to are: orthopedic surgeons; neurosurgeons; neurologists; chiropractors; physical therapists; life care planners; pain management specialists; MRI & CT scan radiologists; and plastic surgeons.  In many cases, your own auto insurance PIP coverage will pay for some of this medical care, and we immediately apply for these benefits for you.

If you or a family member have been seriously injured in an auto accident, you need an aggressive, intelligent attorney who is not afraid to take on whomever is responsible as well as their greedy insurance company.  We justify our fees the old fashion way — by earning it.  Amarillo Auto Accident Attorney Offers Free Consultations. 806-374-4024

 

Auto Accidents – What You Need To Know!

Cases arising out of automobile accidents are by far the most common type of personal injury case in our court system today. This is not surprising, given that every 10 seconds, someone the United States is involved in a car accident, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. These cases are typically governed by the law of negligence. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise “reasonable case under the circumstances.” A failure to use reasonable care is considered negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for any damages, either to a person or property, caused by his or her negligence. The injured party, known as the plaintiff, is required to prove that the Defendant was negligent, that the negligence caused the accident, and that the accident caused the Plaintiff’s injuries. If you have been involved in an auto accident, you must not hesitate to seek legal counsel from a personal injury attorney experienced in these type cases.

As with other types of accidents, figuring out who is at fault in a traffic accident is a matter of deciding who was negligent. In many cases, your instincts will tell you that a driver, cyclist or pedestrian acted carelessly, but not what rule or rules that person violated. Fault issues can be complicated, and an experienced attorney will look to a number of sources, such as police reports, state traffic laws, and witnesses to help you determine who was at fault for your accident.  However, time is critical. Evidence disappears. Witnesses move. You must act quickly to preserve evidence.


Damages:

Generally, an individual injured in an auto accident may bring a claim or lawsuit to recover money for property damage, medical costs, lost wages, physical pain and suffering. Litigation involving auto accidents can be extremely complicated. Retaining an experienced lawyer, familiar with auto accident damages, will place you in the best position to receive the recovery that you deserve.

Dos & Don’ts:

Do call your insurance agent as an accident takes place. Your agent is more likely than your insurer to explain requirements and help you with a claim under your own policy.

Do review and understand your coverage before talking to your insurer or your agent. Read the “Coverage” and “Exclusion” sections of your policy in particular.
Do not give recorded statements to anyone until you have talked to an attorney!

Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Insurance:

Many drivers ignore motor vehicle insurance requirements, cannot afford to purchase insurance, or carry insufficient insurance. Uninsured motorist coverage is a form of insurance that pays for bodily injury that results from an auto accident with a driver who is legally responsible for the injuries, but has no liability coverage. Underinsured motorist coverage pays for property damage and bodily injury that results from an auto accident with a driver who has liability insurance with limits that are lower than the injured party’s damages. If you have been involved in an auto accident with an uninsured or underinsured driver, it is important that you contact an experienced personal injury law firm immediately so you do not waive valuable legal rights under your own insurance policy.
