What should I do if I get in an accident?
Your first concern should be to seek proper medical attention. If you or someone else is able, they should gather the names, addresses, insurance information and take photographs to document the accident.
If I’m only a little sore, should I see a doctor?
Some injuries won’t arise until after an accident. If you don’t see a doctor, you risk delaying your treatment. Often times, soreness can signify more serious injuries. Insurance companies may try to argue that injuries diagnosed later were unrelated to the motor vehicle accident.
When should I give my statement to the at-fault driver’s insurance company?
Never. As a general rule, you should consult a lawyer first, as these statements are taken to protect the other driver’s legal rights, and can be used against you at a later time.
How long will it take to settle my case?
The duration of your medical recovery is a significant factor in resolving your case. Ensuring that you have reached your maximum medical recovery is our first priority. Once you’ve recovered from your injuries and your losses from the accident are clear we can begin resolving your claim. Only when it’s in your best interests will we advise you to settle your claim. In a small number of cases where settlement is impossible we will take your case to trial to receive fair compensation.
