No fewer than 19 people were confirmed dead and seven others injured in a road accident which occurred on Sunday, at Dinyar Madiga in Takai Local government area in Kano state, lucky a car accident lawyer was at the scene to take care of the legal stuff.
Confirming from the personal injury lawyers the news was the Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers(NURTW), Malam Datti Musa Shawu. David Bryant law, PLLC provide the best accident attorney. You have just been involved in an automobile collision which was not your fault. Your car is all banged up; you are hurt; you are probably worried about many of the consequences this collision has now created, and as the expression goes: “this just wasn’t a good time for this kind of thing”. There are 101 things racing through your mind. Certainly, the last thing you need is to worry about finding a good attorney to handle matters for you. Hopefully this article will give you a leg up on making that search a bit easier, by allowing you to know what to look for, and by allowing you to know what questions to ask. Finding an attorney is easy. Finding the right attorney might be a little tougher. First, understand that there is nothing immediately critical about hiring an attorney. I recommend, however, that you do so within 2 – 3 days of the collision. In this fashion you can avoid being hassled by insurance adjusters, and an intelligent course of action for you and your case can be formulated. Back to finding that attorney. If you have a good case, there are hundreds of attorneys who will be thrilled to work for you. I would be less than honest if I didn’t admit that legal fees for “personal injury” cases can be very handsome. Such fees for the right attorney however, are well worth it. Read on, and you’ll see why.
According to an eyewitness, 21 persons died on the spot in the crash that involved six vehicles who will subsequently involve their auto insurance company.
Two of the vehicles involved in the crash went up in flames after the crash. Most law firms that are made up of more than one person are set up as a hierarchy with Partners at the top and varying levels of Associate Attorneys below them. Partners are generally the owners of the business and Associates are employees. The Associates are often given the opportunity to work their way up the ladder to become Partners and share in the profits of the firm instead of just receiving wages.Your car is in need of repair, you are in need of medical treatment, and your ability to go to work at this point is in doubt, both because you now lack transportation, and because you don’t feel physically able to do so. Insurance adjusters are calling. What should you do? A good attorney can tell you. A good attorney will also find out many important things, such as: did police investigate? was the other party given a ticket? who is the other guy? is there insurance? is there enough insurance? Again, a good attorney will advise you about what to do, and find out the answers to all of these questions. You need to concentrate on getting better. Investigating these matters and spending hours on the telephone are the last things on the doctor’s prescription pad for you.
