For most people, driving is an everyday event, going to and from work, shopping, and family outings. Because people spend so much time on the road, it is not unusual to spot motor vehicle accidents. While most of them are relatively minor, some result in serious injuries or even fatalities. In too many cases, the accident is the result of driver recklessness or distraction. Factors such as speeding, cell phone use, and alcohol consumption play critical roles in avoidable automobile accidents.
If you have been involved in a car accident resulting in an injury, contact a lawyer immediately to begin the process of protecting your health and financial well-being. Motor vehicle accidents typically involve both traffic law and insurance law, making it vital that you have an experienced car accident attorney on your side.

Fighting to Protect Your Physical and Financial Health
Clients who have been injured in car accidents, truck collisions, motorcycle crashes, and other motor vehicle accidents typically have several serious concerns when they see an attorney, such as:
- Monetary: mounting medical bills; worries that health insurance might not cover medical expenses; no health insurance
- Injuries: disfigurements; surgeries; broken bones; pain and suffering
- Work-related: how to obtain compensation for lost wages
Attorney Erickson urges everyone who has been injured to avoid the risks of taking on an insurance company on their own. The insurance company’s single goal is to hold costs down. They do this with a variety of tactics, including low-ball offers, getting people to sign statements that reduce or eliminate their ability to pursue legal claims, and by intimidating accident victims.
Get an attorney who knows these tactics and how to effectively counter them in pursuit of fair compensation for your injuries.
