At Saleeby and Cox we use our over 60 years experience in handling accident cases to pursue a favorable outcome for your case.
You need attorneys to investigate causes of an accident to ensure that you will receive full compensation for your injuries. Evaluating all of the facts involved in the cause of a motor vehicle accident requires dedication and experience, not TV commercials.
We give you an honest assessment of your case. You should hire a lawyer you trust fully.
Our office will take over the investigation of your case so that you can concentrate on recovering from your injuries.
Many attorney advertisements on TV or billboards never mention one of the most important aspects of your case: resolving your medical bills. Whether you are a Veteran with Tricare, or a worker with private employer insurance, we will work to protect your rights. If you have no health insurance, there can be specific advantages to hiring a lawyer.
If necessary, we can assist you in finding an appropriate medical specialist to treat you, and we can attempt to make arrangements with your medical care providers to wait for payment until your case is resolved through settlement or trial.
Automobile accidents are generally decided using the law of negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay any damages caused by their negligence, either to person or property. Generally, people who operate automobiles must exercise "reasonable care under the circumstances." Failure to use reasonable care is the basis in most lawsuits for damages caused by an automobile accident.
Courts look to a number of factors in determining whether a driver was negligent. Some examples of these factors include, but are not limited to, the following:
Driving too fast or too slow
Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Failing to signal while turning
Disregarding weather or traffic conditions
Disobeying traffic signs or signals
Failing to drive on the right side of the road
A driver may also be liable for an accident caused by intentional or reckless conduct. A driver who is reckless is one who drives unsafely, with willful and wanton disregard for the probability that the driving may cause an accident.
If an insurance company is offering to pay you immediately after a collision, ask yourself WHY?
Could the insurance company be trying to avoid punitive damages?
We offer competitive contingency fees rates (attorney being paid from a percentage of the total settlement) which do not require you to pay out of pocket in most clear liability cases. You should always obtain verification of contingency fees before hiring an attorney.
Based upon strong word of mouth from our past clients, we have delivered legal victories for clients without the help of flashy commercials. As with anything in life, if you hire a company who advertises heavily; ask yourself who pays for those large ads?
Disclaimer: Every case is different and any spectacular result the lawyer or law firm may have achieved on behalf of clients in other matters does not necessarily indicate similar results can be obtained for your case.
