Auto accidents are unfortunately common occurrences, yet we never think they will happen to us until they do. If you have been in an accident, you know how quickly it can happen and how much damage is possible even in seemingly minor fender-benders. Your medical bills could be much higher than what you can afford to pay and that burden will only seem heavier if you are prevented from working. We can help you hold the people responsible for your injuries accountable by filing a personal injury claim.
There are several key points to remember if you are involved in an accident that are vital to a successful personal injury case. First, do not admit fault to anyone. This includes the other driver(s), any witnesses, police officers or medics, and any insurance agents — including your own. Do not post anything on social media regarding the accident and be certain to get all the contact and insurance information from the other parties, as well as witnesses. Get all the medical care you need and then call a personal injury attorney before speaking to anyone else.
The biggest mistake our clients sometimes make is trying to deal with the insurance representatives directly. We cannot stress enough that your lawyer should do this on your behalf. We have decades of experience interfacing with these people and are fluent in insurance-speak. If they call you, simply refer them to us. We’ll ensure you do not admit fault and can spot an unfair settlement offer from a mile away.
