How A Car Accident Attorney Can Help
Injuries sustained in motor vehicle accidents can lead to serious physical, emotional, and financial hardship. Most injured victims simply want to heal and get on with their lives, but when you’ve been seriously hurt, it may not be possible to return to work and your normal daily activities for a long time, if ever. When you’re injured and trying to heal, dealing with insurance companies is the last thing on your mind. That’s why it’s vital to have a tenacious car accident lawyer to represent your interests.
Insurance companies are concerned with one thing — their bottom line. They typically offer minimal settlements to injured victims or deny liability altogether. Our legal team examines the evidence surrounding the collision, collects evidence supporting your claim, collaborates with your health care providers, and handles negotiations with insurers so you can focus on healing. Although the vast majority of personal injury cases are settled out of court, our attorneys are seasoned litigators who will not hesitate to bring your case before a judge or jury if a reasonable settlement cannot be reached.

Steps To Take After A Car Accident
It’s important to follow certain steps that may enable you to receive proper medical care and full compensation down the road. After any accident, call 911. Even if you believe your injuries are minor, it’s important to seek medical attention immediately. Car accident victims are often in shock following a collision. This can mask pain and other symptoms of your injuries, which may show up days or even weeks later.
Make sure to get names, contact information, license plate numbers, and insurance information from all involved drivers. It’s also vital to get the contact information from any witnesses. Take photos of the scene, vehicle damage, and your injuries. Refrain from using statements like “I’m sorry” or “It was my fault.” If possible, get a copy of the police report at the scene. Do not give a statement to or sign anything from any insurance company without speaking to an experienced car accident attorney first.
