How can we help you?

Deciding to file a lawsuit against a negligent party is a big decision.

You may feel confused or intimidated bringing a suit against them.

However, it’s important to remember that the lawsuit is simply a means of recovering the financial compensation you need to recover from your physical and/or emotional trauma. And you should know that rarely do lawsuits result in out-of-pocket costs for the party you bring suit against.

Instead, it’s usually their insurance that will cover the cost. In fact, these reasons are exactly why people carry insurance—to protect them financially in the event of an accident. In addition, what is more likely to happen is that a claim against the insurance company will be filed and you’ll reach a settlement, so your case won’t have to go to court. But whether your claim is settled or eventually goes to court, the negligent party’s insurance still pays.

How can we help you?

Every case is unique so the amount of money you may be able to recover depends on the circumstances of your accident. If you’ve suffered financial, emotional, and physical losses for your injuries, you may be entitled to injury compensation and receive a settlement check for

  • past and future medical bills
  • loss of enjoyment of life
  • loss of consortium (loss of comfort, care, and society)
  • emotional distress
  • pain and suffering
  • property damage
  • lost wages
  • lost earning capacity
  • out-of-pocket expenses
  • psychological trauma

How can we help you?

Lawsuits are complex procedures. Your OnderLaw car accident attorney is prepared to take this on for you.

We will 

  • prepare documents. We’ll draft a complaint, laying out all the elements of the case, and a summons that notifies the defendant that they’re required to appear in court on a specific date. We’ll then file these documents with the appropriate civil court.
  • serve the complaint and summons. We’ll hire a process server to deliver the documents and hand them over to the defendant.
  • begin discovery. After the defendant files their answer to our complaint, your Onder attorney and the defendant’s attorney will request copies of evidence. We’ll also file documents asking each party to answer questions concerning the case and submit documents needed to investigate the accident.
  • schedule depositions. During discovery, we may schedule a deposition to ask the defendant questions under oath about the case. It is conducted in front of the defendant’s attorney and recorded by a court reporter. 
  • request mediation. We may request a meeting with the defendant, their attorney, and a mediator to try to reach a settlement agreement. If we agree to compensation that you believe is fair, we can avoid going to trial.
  • prepare for trial. If we’re unable to settle during mediation, we will begin to prepare for trial, gathering evidence, locating witnesses to testify, and preparing our arguments for court.


We walk you through each step of the process, we help you with every document, and we obtain all evidence you need so you can focus on your recovery.

If we don’t win, you don’t pay. So you can just focus on your recovery.

Jabar Gaddie

For them to have already have met for settlement talks in my case is quite impressive. I have never had any communication issues with them. They are quite thorough and have no problem updating you on your case, just give them a call. Be proactive in your communication with them and patient as they fight for us. I understand concerns regarding the time frame, I often daydream of being financially secure and providing a better life for my family, that day will come. I trust Onder Law.

Suzanne Reynolds

I have nothing but confidence in Onder Law Firm. I’ve had the honor of meeting several of their staff at a social event and my fiance has since signed with them to handle a claim against a company. What alot of these people who have left bad reviews about them fail to realize is that their types of cases don’t get resolved overnight, they have a massive caseload on top of an already delayed court system, and they’re not going to call you just to say they have no update on your case They are going up against billion and trillion dollar companies who have an endless supply of resources. Be patient and let your attorneys do what they do…… THEY WILL WIN FOR YOU AND THEY WILL WIN BIG. They’ve never hidden the fact that the process will be long. But it WILL be worth it.

Robert Read

They are so friendly and caring. I trust them. They are doing the right thing for me and my family.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do

  • Wait at the crash scene for an officer to arrive and investigate the cause of the accident.
  • Seek medical treatment immediately after the accident, even if you believe your injury is minor.
  • Take photos of any property damage as well as the accident location.

 

DON’T

  • Speak to your insurance company or give a recorded statement until you have met with your lawyer.
  • Sign any forms the insurance company sends you. Your OnderLaw car accident attorney will examine them for you.
  • Admit any degree of fault.
  • Talk to the insurance adjuster. Your lawyer will handle all communication on your behalf.
  • Post anything about your accident on social media.

The value of your damages depends on various factors. An insurance company reviewing your claim might use some of the details below to come up with a fair number:

  • amount of insurance coverage available
  • type and severity of the injury
  • mental and emotional trauma experienced
  • impact of the accident on quality of life
  • duration of necessary medical treatment and expected length of recovery
  • daily disruptions, such as time away from work
  • vacation or missed special event
  • total medical costs

If the at-fault motorist doesn’t carry liability auto insurance, you can file a claim with your insurance company. Uninsured/underinsured motorist (UM) coverage provides compensation to accident victims if 

  • the negligent driver doesn’t have insurance
  • the available liability coverage isn’t high enough to compensate for the total damages
  • or the accident was due to a hit-and-run driver

Motor vehicle accidents are heartbreakingly common. Every day, people are hurt due to the mistakes of irresponsible drivers who can cause others to be severely injured. Common car accident causes include

  • distracted driving – Actions that take a driver’s eyes, hands, or focus off the task of driving, such as texting, changing the radio, or eating food can result in an accident.
  • drunk driving – Operating a vehicle while impaired by alcohol endangers everyone on the road. It reduces a person’s reaction time, alters sensory perception, and decreases motor skills.
  • speeding – Driving too fast for road or weather conditions is dangerous, making it difficult for a motorist to slow down or stop in an emergency or if traffic ahead comes to a standstill.
  • road defects – Local governments are supposed to perform routine road maintenance to prevent hazardous conditions. Unrepaired damage or defects can lead to a devastating crash.
  • fatigued or drowsy driving – Anyone who drives while feeling tired can suffer from blurry vision, poor decision-making skills, and
  • slowed reaction time—the same as someone who has drunk too much.
  • failure to obey traffic regulations – Many people ignore basic traffic laws. A driver who blows through a stop sign or red light could collide with another vehicle that has the right of way.
  • tailgating – Following another car too closely puts all vehicle occupants at risk of harm. If the car ahead must stop, the tailgating car likely won’t have enough time to stop or swerve out of the way.
  • reckless driving – Driving aggressively, weaving in and out of traffic, and changing lanes without using a turn signal are all examples of recklessness that can cause an accident.
  • road construction – It’s imperative that people remain especially cautious in a construction area. Slowing down and obeying warning signs could prevent a crash.
  • defective car parts – Sometimes faulty parts can compromise a car’s performance. The manufacturer could be liable for an accident if there were a design or manufacturing defect.

There are many different types of car accidents. No matter how your accident was caused, if a negligent party was involved, we can help you get compensation. Common types of car accident cases include 

  • hit and run accidents
  • drunk driver accidents
  • drugged driver accidents
  • rear end collisions
  • speeding accidents
  • accidents with an underinsured or uninsured driver
  • road defects
  • car/mechanical defects
  • rollover accidents
  • T-bone collisions
  • single vehicle accidents
  • multi-vehicle accidents

When you’re looking for a car accident lawyer there are several things you should consider. Obviously, the firm they work for should have extensive experience and a track record of success. But it’s even more important for you to feel supported as a client. Before you hire a firm, ask questions. 

Does the firm get your input, so they know which attorney to assign to your case? Are they empathetic about the ordeal you’ve been through? Do they communicate with you regularly and return calls and emails promptly? Do they take care of the deadlines and details of your case so you don’t have the stress of worrying about them? Are they realistic about what kind of compensation you can expect? 

Getting the right answers to questions like these will go a long way toward making sure you have the right lawyer and improve your chances of getting the best outcome for your claim or case.
