Vermont Auto Accident Attorneys

Auto accidents are the number one cause of personal injury and death in the U.S., totaling over 4 million injuries and over 40,000 deaths each year. Per the CDC, over 2.3 million drivers and passengers per year seek treatment in emergency rooms for injuries sustained in auto accidents. Additionally, costs of crash-related injuries and deaths are estimated at about $70 billion.

Do You Need an Auto Accident Attorney?

Dealing with car accident litigation can be quite complicated and can make it really difficult to get fair compensation without an experienced Rutland, VT  car accident attorney to help you navigate the situation. The insurance companies of negligent drivers are known to take advantage of victims that do not have adequate representation, so it’s imperative that you have someone on your side. 

Reasonable Compensation

Car accident victims in Rutland, Vermont are entitled to compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering, lost wages, inability to live a normal life, as well as disability and emotional distress. However, insurance companies will do all they can to skirt around paying you what you’re truly owed. Only a top car accident lawyer can get you the compensation you are truly owed. 

Liability Disagreements

Negligent drivers responsible for accidents often fail to be honest with their insurance companies about the details of just how the accident occurred. In turn, the insurance company will then victim-blame to avoid having to pay compensation. In situations such as these, an experienced car accident attorney can have specialists in accident reconstruction come in to prove exactly how the accident happened and show who was responsible. 

Problems With Insurance Coverage 

In car crashes that involve death and/or serious injury, the single most important and complex issue of all is how much of the insurance coverage is applicable. In any accident, insurance coverage can be overly complicated and difficult to grasp. The top Rutland, Vermont car and auto accident lawyers at Kalter, Kalter & Mabey have the knowledge and skills necessary to get you fair compensation from every possible insurance policy applicable to your case. These policies may include general liability, umbrella, and uninsured and underinsured motorist varieties.

Defective Automobile

A common cause of car accidents is defective vehicles and defective car parts. This includes:

  • Faulty tires
  • Gas pedals sticking and causing unintended acceleration
  • Airbag failure 
  • Seatbelt failure
  • Braking system failure
  • Collapse of roof supports upon impact 

If you were in an accident due to a faulty vehicle, the experienced Rutland, Vermont auto accident and car accident lawyers at Kalter, Kalter & Mabey  can ensure the defective device manufacturer is held totally accountable and provides you with fair compensation for any and all injuries and losses.

Other, Special Circumstances

Occasionally, there may be circumstances that alter or limit a driver’s liability.

Additionally, if the negligent driver did not have consent to use the vehicle at the time of the accident, there can be complications regarding insurance responsibilities.
