Where are the "hot spots" for accidents in Biddeford?
Accidents that involve serious injury or fatality often happen on Interstate 95, which crosses through Biddeford. Sometimes, a car might get struck by an 18-wheeler on I-95. Such accidents demand a comprehensive investigation to determine liability. The truck driver might have been impaired, distracted or might have lacked the training required to operate a big rig. Other hot spots for accidents include U.S. Route 1 and state routes 5, 9 and 11.
How do I know if I need an attorney for my accident?
If you were injured or a loved one died in an accident, you should without hesitation arrange a consultation with a lawyer. In such cases, you may be facing a long-term struggle that will affect you financially, emotionally and physically. Insurance companies often are quick to make low-ball settlement offers or may even deny compensation for someone who has been hurt in a car wreck. An attorney at the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein can help by negotiating with the insurance company or taking the case to court if necessary.
If you were in a minor accident that does not involve any injury and the other motorist is being cooperative, you may be able to resolve a claim on your own. But it's always better to be safe than sorry. If you have any questions or concerns about your accident. Call us. We will be happy to answer your questions free of charge.
When representing someone injured or someone who has lost a loved one, we generally negotiate with insurance companies to get the money the client needs. In most accident claims we handle, the case ends with a settlement that covers the client's losses. But sometimes we need to file a lawsuit and take the case to court. We know this is a major decision and will do so only after discussing the pros and cons with the client. A case may go to trial where you may need to testify. But often, lawsuits end up being settled before trial. Keep in mind that the Law Offices of Joe Bornstein is fully prepared to make a strong argument before a judge and jury on your behalf. While we likely will settle the claim, we are ready to do whatever is necessary to get our clients justice.
