Five Reasons Why You Need Us
This may be your only opportunity for justice. Make your case count. Contact us
Even though car accidents can be life-changing events, many people choose to handle their own claim. In theory, there's nothing particularly wrong with that. In practice, there's a great deal that can go wrong without a professional, experienced attorney on your side. Here are the five main reasons why you should hire the Szantho Law Firm to represent you after a car accident.
We handle big claims
As a rule, the more money there is at stake, the harder the other side will push back against you. If you have tens of thousands of dollars in medical bills and other accident-related expenses, you can bet that the other driver will have legal representation. We're not afraid to go up against opposing counsel.
We have the experience, dedication and discipline you need to build a strong case, counter opposing arguments and negotiate a fair settlement. Moreover, big cases are often resolved at trial. Attorney Andras Szantho has years of courtroom experience and knows how to win.
If you have a lot of money riding on your case, remember - you often only have one shot to win your case and you need to make it count. With our legal team on your side, you can count on us to fight for the maximum compensation you rightfully deserve.
We're not afraid to go to court
While most car accident cases settle out of court, there are always cases where the opposing sides cannot agree and the matter must be decided by a judge or jury. Most personal injury lawyers are competent negotiators, but some struggle when the case goes to trial. That's why many attorneys accept a small settlement rather than go to trial.
Attorney Andras Szantho takes a different approach. A former prosecutor, he thrives in the courtroom. He knows how the legal system works in Bernalillo County, Santa Fe County and throughout New Mexico.
Attorney Szantho is the lawyer you want by your side if your case goes to trial. By simply having him as your attorney, many opposing lawyers and insurance companies are often more likely to settle your case for a sizable amount, rather than take their chances in a courtroom against us.
We know how to prove the other driver was at fault
In order to collect damages (financial compensation) after a car accident - or in any personal injury case - you need to prove that you were injured as a result of someone else's negligence. And in most cases, that's often very hard to do for many reasons. The other drive might deny any wrongdoing. Or perhaps an insurance company has expressed doubts about your accident. Whatever the reason, you need us to investigate your claim.
At the Szantho Law Firm, we know how to identify the telltale signs of a negligent driver. Drunk drivers tend to weave in and out of traffic. Asleep-at-the-wheel drivers rarely hit the brakes before impact. Reckless drivers often cause collisions at intersections.
Armed with this knowledge, we take an aggressive approach towards finding the facts needed to build a strong legal case. We often look at physical evidence at a crash site. We interview witnesses. We pore over documents to find proof that another driver's negligence caused your car accident. We won't wait for evidence to disappear. Instead, we'll vigorously pursue any lead and collect everything we need to build a winning case.
We handle serious injuries
If your car accident resulted in a serious or permanent injury, the legal issues surrounding your case can quickly become very complex. Your claim should account for lost wages, missed opportunities, lost earning potential and lost quality of life. Depending on the circumstances, you may have a claim for loss of consortium, pain and suffering or several other claims.
To handle cases involving spinal injuries, brain injuries, broken bones, neck injuries, injuries requiring amputation and other long-term or permanent damage, you'll need a disciplined, dedicated and vigorous attorney. You can't afford to accept a smaller settlement when the rest of your life is at stake. You need attorney Andras Szantho to make your case count.
Not only will we fight for the compensation you deserve after your car accident, we'll do everything we can to make sure you receive the medical treatment you need now and in the future. This might seem straightforward. But the reality is some insurance companies and doctors might try to claim you're not seriously hurt. You know your body best. And as your attorney, we will do everything we can to make sure you receive the medical care you need to live your life with dignity.
We will protect your rights
Even when the facts surrounding your car accident are clear, insurance companies often see things differently. They might claim that your injuries aren't that serious. Or that perhaps you were mostly at fault. Whatever the reason, many insurance companies will say anything to avoid paying you the money you rightfully deserve. Instead, most insurance companies make "low-ball" offers and deliberately ignore vital details in order to justify a smaller settlement. They may pressure you for information, including confidential medical records, and then try to use that material against you. Or they may try to argue that your injuries were suffered post-accident or due to a pre-existing condition.
Insurance companies don't scare us. Attorney Szantho has years of experience taking on insurance companies and winning. When you have us on your side, you won't have to talk to insurance companies anymore about your accident. We can deal with them directly on your behalf. We can protect your private information. We will do everything we can to get you the maximum compensation you deserve to move forward after your car accident.
