Helping The Wrongfully Injured Get Fair Compensation
Injuries resulting from car accidents or the careless acts of others can cause a serious disruption in your life. Dealing with insurance companies, seeking medical attention, and loss or interruption of finances all become part of the equation. At Valsangiacomo, Detora & McQuesten, P.C., we advocate your interests in personal injury cases, either with an insurance company or in litigation.
People who operate automobiles must exercise reasonable care. Failure to use reasonable care is considered negligence. A person who negligently operates a vehicle may be required to pay for any harm, either to a person or property, caused by his or her negligence. This includes damage to the vehicle, medical expenses, loss of wages and pain and suffering. Our attorneys will ensure that you receive fair compensation from the insurance company or at-fault party by aggressively pursuing your interests.
We work with clients on all types of motor vehicle accidents including:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Semi/big truck accidents
- Commercial vehicle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
In Vermont, the statute of limitations for filing a personal injury claim is three years from the date of the accident, but the sooner you file a claim, the better your chances of getting compensation for your injuries. With each passing day, it becomes more difficult to gather evidence and find witnesses.
