Auto Accidents – Have you been hurt in a car, truck or motorcycle accident?  Are you a pedestrian who has been hit by a car?  Don’t let the insurance companies talk you into anything until you talk to a lawyer.  In addition to recovery for your property damage, you may be able to obtain compensation for related medical bills, lost wages, over the counter and out of pocket expenses, and just compensation for your pain and suffering.
