Each year thousands of people become injured in car accidents, and sadly many of these accidents are preventable. The injuries suffered can be mild or severe; though, regardless of the severity of one's injuries, dealing withthe aftermath after becoming injured can be an overwhelming and difficult process. Individuals who have been left with damages or car wreck injuries after an accident are often faced with challenges to receiving fair compensation from those liable for what they have endured. Insurance companies often take steps to avoid payouts to claimants beyond what they deem is appropriate to provide; and many initial offers from insurers in these cases fail to fairly compensate victims for their damages or losses or take into account the necessity of future medical care.
If you were injured in a car accident, it is important to get the medical attention you need, but that may not be possible without compensation. At JM Davis Law PLLC our lawyers aggressively fight on behalf of the victims of negligent drivers.

What Is Your Injury Case Worth?
Well, maybe more than you think. Soft tissue injuries are often worse than they may seem at first. A "sore neck" could actually be a fractured vertebrae or serious ligament damage. A swollen knee might eventually require surgery. A "pulled muscle" in the back might keep a person out of work for months.
Without an attorney on your side, an insurance company is likely to either flatly reject your soft tissue damage claim, or offer a quick settlement that does not account for future medical care or a lasting disability. We work with your doctors to diagnose the actual damage and document your claims for medical bills, lost income, pain and suffering. Rather than seek a quick settlement, we ensure that you have reached maximum medical improvement or that you are fully compensated for future medical expenses and lost earnings before entertaining a settlement.
