A car accident is a life-altering event that can change your body and mind. Car accidents have the potential to leave you with serious injuries, outstanding medical bills, loss wages, and tremendous damage to property. Someone else’s negligence caused you to suffer injuries, and it should be that person who pays for your injury.  Unfortunately, recovery is not automatic.  In some cases, an insurance company may try and obtain a statement from you or ask certain questions hoping that you inadvertently admit full or partial liability for an accident, which could have a significant impact on your ability to recover. When you retain Melaney LaGrone, she will deal with the insurance company on your behalf and make sure you receive the compensation to which you are entitled.
