SUV (Sport Utility Vehicle) Accidents & Injuries
An Oakland SUV accident attorney can help if you or someone you know was injured in an auto accident involving an SUV (sport utility vehicle). An accident of this kind may leave you injured and dealing with unforeseen expenses, such as medical bills, the cost of renting a car and paying for auto repairs. With an attorney to assist you in handling your insurance claim or lawsuit, you have the opportunity to recover money that will cover all of these expenses and possibly more, as swiftly and efficiently as possible.
Like any collision, an SUV accident may cause serious and lasting injuries to anyone involved. This risk increases for a pedestrian, motorcyclist or bicycle rider involved in an accident with an SUV, as the large vehicle is likely to cause severe damage. A specific factor that increases the potential danger of an SUV accident is the fact that these vehicles are more likely to tip or roll over in the event of a collision, hard turn, tire blowout or loss of control. An SUV may be top-heavy and if not designed properly may be susceptible to roof crush or cave-in if it does roll over.
Filing an Oakland SUV Accident Claim
Regardless of the extent of injury you have sustained and the circumstances that may surround your case, it is important to file an insurance claim. You will need to report the incident to your insurance company and may be entitled to damages paid by your or other driver's insurance policy, depending on the case. In any event, having a lawyer to help you in filing your claim is important. The insurance company may attempt to delay payment, deny your claim or offer you a settlement below what your case is actually worth. An attorney can seek the full financial compensation you need.
