Automobile Accident Attorney

Car accidents happen every day to people who are not at fault.

An auto collision can have devastating effects on your health, your family, and your well-being. If you or a loved one has been the victim of an auto collision, getting your life back on track can be a confusing and overwhelming process. If an accident interferes with your ability to work or changes your everyday routine, the burden of managing vehicle repairs and dealing with insurance companies and legal matters can add tremendous stress to an already trying time.

Car accidents are also a huge financial hardship. If you were not at fault, you are eligible for a settlement that can pay for hospital bills, doctor’s visits, vehicle repairs, and even lost wages if you are unable to work.

If you have been in a car accident:

  • If possible, take pictures of the scene, including damage to the vehicles and anything else that may help show what happened.
  • Obtain contact information from the other driver, including the name and phone number for their insurance company.
  • Write down detailed notes about the events leading up to the accident. If you are unable to write, have someone help or use an audio recorder.
  • Do not talk with insurance company representatives without a lawyer on your side.
  • Contact a lawyer as soon as possible after the incident, who can help you determine the best way to communicate with your insurance company and the at-fault driver’s legal representation, as well as help you take the right steps to seek reimbursement for any costs associated with the accident.
