Car Accident

We strive to fully understand each individual’s story, to be aggressive in and out of court, and to be the most knowledgeable when it comes to the complex issues involved in personal injury cases.

What should I do after a car collision?

  1. Immediately after a collision, move your car to the side of the road if it’s safe to do so.
  2. Contact the police. File a police report even if the police do not come to the scene.
  3. Take photos of all the cars that are involved.
  4. Get the other driver’s insurance information, and take a photo if possible. Seek medical care immediately.
  5. Contact your own insurance carrier, if you have personal injury protection with your insurance you will need to establish a claim to avoid billing headaches.

Following an accident, there are common mistakes people make after being involved in an accident. Injuries can be masked by adrenaline, so you may not feel pain at the accident scene but symptoms may develop over the next few days, or even longer. Do not give a statement to the other driver’s insurance before speaking to an attorney.

Why You Need a Car Accident Lawyer/Attorney

With access to leading experts in the field and a profound understanding of complex medical issues impacting the injured, we have the expertise to handle cases involving pre-existing conditions exacerbated by traumatic collisions, which most other firms are hesitant to take on.

Car Accident FAQs

Do I have to pay my attorney/how does my attorney get paid?

  • We operate on a contingency fee basis, which means that if we do not recover any money for you, then we are not owed a fee.
  • If we do recover money for you, we take a percentage of it for our fee. The amount we take as a percentage varies depending on several factors, including the type of case, complexity, how close to trial it settles, whether it is tried, etc.

Do I have to pay back my medical care and/or PIP? How do I get my medical bills paid?

  • This will depend on several factors. You might have health insurance, medical insurance under your car insurance policy, labor and industries insurance if injured on the job, etc. One of the reasons you hire us is to help you figure out who pays for what.

Will you handle my property damage claim?

  • It depends. Most people are able to resolve this on their own, but if something unusual happens, we’re happy to help our clients as a courtesy.
