Determined Motor Vehicle Accidents Attorney After A Serious Accident
Injuries sustained in a violent car accident could mean you can no longer earn a living, help take care of your children or even look after yourself anymore. PJ Campanaro Attorney at Law is committed to helping you get back to financial stability after a major auto accident leaves you disabled or takes the life of a loved one.
The process of getting fair compensation after a motor vehicle accident is often not simple. Often, you must deal with strict deadlines and an insurance company more interested in profits than making you financially whole again for a crash that was not your fault. Founding attorney PJ Campanaro has represented thousands of car accident victims. She will handle every detail of your claim, from investigating the collision and examining evidence to filing paperwork and negotiating with the insurance provider. She will make you feel welcome when meeting at the firm’s office, during phone calls and during email exchanges, but be aggressive when it’s time to confront the defense.
Car Wrecks Can Cause Devastating Injury
While most car accidents only cause minor injuries to drivers and passengers, a serious wreck can be fatal or lead to permanent disability. Common major injuries resulting from a car, truck or motorcycle accident include:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Spinal cord and back injuries
- Crushed and amputated limbs, hands and feet
- Organ damage
- Fatal injuries
You might eventually recover from your injuries, but you require years of medical care first. Or you could be facing a lifetime of pain and disability. Either way, you could be entitled to significant compensation for your lost past and future wages, medical bills, pain and suffering and more. PJ Campanaro will determine every way the other driver’s negligence has harmed you and reach a precise figure you are owed. Then, she will get to work fighting to recoup those damages.
What Damages Can You Recover After A Car Accident?
If you get involved in a car accident caused by another negligent driver, you could find yourself facing substantial financial challenges. You have hospital bills to pay, you’re losing wages while you are out of work, and you may be facing long-term issues – such as the need for long-term care, a reduction in your earnings or lasting symptoms from a spinal cord injury (SCI) or a traumatic brain injury (TBI).
At PJ Campanaro Attorney at Law, our accident lawyer can help you as you seek maximum compensation for all of your costs. It is very important not to overlook anything. We make sure you don’t. Here are just a few areas where you may be able to seek compensation from the insurance company:
To begin with, you may have immediate medical bills, such as the cost of an ambulance ride, treatment in the emergency room and an overnight hospital stay. An accident may only take a split second to happen, but you may immediately find yourself facing overwhelming debt, and you deserve compensation.
Even a minor injury could bring about lost wages if you miss work for a day or two. A serious injury that keeps you out of the workforce for weeks or months could significantly strain your budget and create financial hardship. Your accident claim can include compensation for these lost earnings.
Finally, it’s important to think about any long-term costs stemming from the accident. Maybe you need physical therapy or rehab for months. Perhaps you can’t return to work or have a reduced earning capacity. Your injuries could even lead to the loss of enjoyment in life, especially if you can’t enjoy your hobbies, you have mobility issues or you’re dealing with chronic pain – just to name a few examples.
Your pain and suffering and loss of enjoyment of life both have value, and they deserve to be considered in the claims process.

What To Do After A Car Accident
The minutes, hours and days after a motor vehicle accident can be critical. Your actions can make the difference between a fair settlement or an unfairly denied claim. Here are six things to do immediately after you get hit by a car:
- Check yourself for injuries. If you have any passengers, examine them and call 911 if anybody needs medical attention.
- If your car is still on the road or at an intersection and you are able to move, get out and move to a safe spot nearby.
- Exchange auto insurance and contact information with the other drivers. Also, get contact information from any third-party witnesses.
- Unless you need emergency medical help, wait at the scene for the police to arrive.
- Using your cellphone or a digital camera, take photos of the accident scene, including the damage to your vehicle and the other vehicles’ license plates.
- Even if you feel unhurt, see a doctor as soon as possible. Some auto injuries are not immediately apparent but still need prompt treatment.
