Auto Accidents/Car Crashes

There are over 6 million car accidents in the United States each year. Half of those accidents cause injuries. Two million people suffer permanent injuries due to car accidents each year. More than 90 people die each day in car accidents.

Unfortunately, it is not in the insurance company's best interest to compensate you or your loved ones quickly or fully. At Coughlan & Vinel we are experts in dealing with insurance companies, taking the stress off the victim, and getting our clients the best possible results.

Whether you were just in a collision or your collision was days, weeks or months ago, we can help ensure you are fully and fairly compensated.

A car accident can be a scary time in a person’s life. Even if initially you might think the accident was minor, injuries can worsen over time. The attorneys at Coughlan & Vinel are experts in handling all types of vehicle collisions.


When you are the victim of vehicle accident you are entitled to compensation.  All the following are types of compensation which may be available to you with the help of an experienced attorney:

  • Medical Bills – You are entitled to compensation for both your past and expected future medical care. Understanding your future medical needs is one of the most important aspects of ensuring that you are fully compensated for your injuries.

  • Loss of Earnings – You are entitled to compensation for time you have missed from work and for time you will miss from work in the future. Additionally, you are entitled to compensated for your loss of earning potential in the future if any of your injuries may inhibit you from advancing in your profession. 

  • Pain, Suffering and Emotional Distress – You are entitled to be compensated for the physical pain, suffering, humiliation, inconvenience, anxiety, disfigurement and emotional distress caused by the collision.

  • Property Damage - You are entitle to be compensated for the damage to your vehicle.


Understanding the ins and outs of what you may be entitled to is why hiring a skilled and experienced injury attorney is so important. However, there are certain things you can be aware of in advance if you are ever in a collision, including:

  • Ensure you are in a safe place before exiting your vehicle to exchange information

  • If you need medical help, ask for it

  • Do not admit fault

  • Do not tell anyone you are not hurt as it is common for injuries to appear later

  • Take photographs and/or videos if you are able

  • If you are unsure if you are hurt, you are better of seeking medical attention as it is better to be safe than sorry

  • Do not agree to a recorded interview with the insurance company representing the driver who hit you
