What You Can Expect from Our Personal Injury Attorneys

  1. From the very start, we will be clear about how the claims process works and what you can expect. We will answer any questions you have and advise you on the next steps you need to take.
  2. We will talk to you about what you want to achieve from your claim. Although we will be prepared to see your case through to a courtroom verdict, there will likely be an opportunity to settle your claim. We will always advise you of whether we feel you deserve more than what is being offered, but we will never pressure you. In the end, we want you to be satisfied with the results, so we take our cues from you.
  3. We will work quickly to start collecting evidence in your case and craft a smart legal strategy. This means thoroughly documenting your injuries and exploring every possible source of compensation. Our goal is always to recover the maximum amount for you.
  4. We will manage communication with the insurance companies so you and your family are not being hounded while you’re trying to heal. Anytime an insurance company calls you or tries to make contact, all you need to do is tell them to talk to us.
  5. We will help you decide how to manage doctor’s bills, time missed from work, and damage to your vehicle. Our staff is available to help you file your property damage claim while we work on your personal injury case.
  6. You will never be left in the dark on the status of your case. We are always available to answer your questions and talk about how your claim is progressing.

Protect Your Rights After an Accident

The moments after an accident can go by in a blur, and you may feel like you don’t have much control of the situation that is unfolding around you. However, there are several things you can do to protect your rights after an accident.

  • Seek medical attention as soon as possible. In addition to providing you with the care you need, a visit to the doctor will produce an initial record of the injuries your suffered.
  • Call the police. If the situation warrants it, such as an auto accident, you should contact law enforcement. The officer will write an accident report and document details from the scene that your lawyer will need later.
  • Get the names and contact information for any witnesses. Anyone who saw what happened and can give more details could help your lawyer craft a strong claim.
  • Get the name and contact information for the at-fault party. In cases such as auto accidents, also take down information about the at-fault party’s insurance company.
  • Make notes of what happened. It can be easy to forget what happened as time passes. Writing down your memories of the accident right away can help keep them fresh in your mind.
  • Take photos and draw a diagram. Photos of your injuries and the accident scene can prove very helpful as your attorney works with an accident reconstruction expert to analyze what happened.
  • Do not apologize, admit fault, or give a recorded statement. If you have to talk to someone such as a law enforcement officer, stick to the basic facts of the case when and where it happened, and who was involved. Any questions from the insurance company should be referred to your attorney.
  • Start a journal to document your injuries. You should note all doctor’s appointments, medications you are taking, and how you are feeling each day. This journal will be a good tool to track how your injury is affecting your daily life, both physically and emotionally.
  • Stay off social media. The insurance companies will use any bit of evidence they can against you. This includes photos or posts on social media that may indicate that you are enjoying life, when in reality you are struggling to deal with your injury.
  • Contact an attorney immediately. Your attorney will need to launch an investigation into your claim as soon as possible to start collecting all available evidence. The longer you wait to contact an attorney, the more you risk losing access to information that could prove valuable to your claim.
