How does attorney Bill Coats build successful distracted driving accident claims?

When someone is injured in a crash caused by a distracted driver, Bill communicates with physicians, specialists, and employers, to evaluate the extent and severity of injuries and other damages, to determine how the injuries will affect life now and in the future, to prove lost income, and to demonstrate how the accident has affected the ability to work. Many injuries require expensive, long-term medical care, and Bill documents expected future medical costs to ensure they are fully factored into the insurance-claim process. A successful claim is one in which an injured person receives a settlement that enables them to fully recover financially, and compensates them for all current and future losses, as well as their pain and suffering.
