Why Work with a Lawyer?
The biggest mistake victims make after being injured in an auto accident is to believe they will be fairly compensated by the at-fault party's insurance company. This simply isn't true.
Insurance companies are in business to make money, and they do whatever they can to minimize claims and the sums they pay out to victims injured by their policyholders
By working with an experienced injury attorney, you can focus on recovering while a professional handles your claim. You can also improve your chances of being fully compensated. In fact, statistics show that on average, people who work with attorneys are paid 3.5x more in their personal injury cases than those without legal representation.

Who Can I Hold Responsible for My Auto Accident?
Determining who can be held financially responsible for your vehicle accident is a case-specific task. At Bostwick & Peterson, we utilize extensive resources to investigate our clients’ accidents, identify how negligence played a role, and determine who we can pursue for damages.
We can speak to potential liability only when we personally evaluate a case. There are too many factors to address – from who and how many people were involved to available insurance coverage – to give any accurate answer without further inquiry. Still, there are examples of parties who can be named as defendants in auto accident claims. These include:
- Motorists who violated traffic laws or were otherwise negligent.
- Companies responsible for truck accidents and crashes involving other commercial vehicles.
- An auto manufacturer or auto parts company responsible for a defective product.
- Landowners who fail to address known hazards on their premises.
- Government entities responsible for accidents involving city transit or other public vehicles.
Car Accident Damages: Fighting for the Maximum Recovery Possible
As a victim of a preventable accident, you may be able to recover compensation for your losses if you are able to prove that another’s negligence more likely than not caused your injuries.
In addition to gathering the evidence to support your claims, it is also very important to detail just how significantly you were impacted by your accident. Working with medical providers, financial experts, and other professionals helps us assess all physical, financial, and emotional losses our clients incurred as a result of their crashes – and allows us to help them seek the maximum financial recovery possible.
Examples of damages you may recover in a personal injury claim:
- Lost wages / lost future earnings
- Hospital and medical expenses
- Compensation for future medical needs
- Pain and suffering / emotional anguish
- Property loss / property damage
