Don’t face insurance companies alone.
In addition to contacting an experienced personal injury attorney, there are a number of things you should do after your car or trucking accident. Having an attorney by your side throughout the process will help you protect your rights. Important actions to take after a wreck include:
Making a police report.
Getting the name, address, phone number and insurance information from other drivers.
Getting the names and phone numbers of independent witnesses who were not part of the accident.
Taking photos of the accident scene, but if you do not have a camera available at the scene, take pictures of the scene and vehicle damages as soon as you can.
Getting medical attention quickly. Do not wait. Protecting yourself medically and documenting your injuries will help you in the long run, while failing to seek treatment could jeopardize your health and your case.
Contacting your own insurance company quickly.
We provide clear communication with our clients, so they can promptly take the necessary steps required after an accident to greatly improve their chances of receiving the compensation they deserve. With so many financial concerns after an accident, you don’t need to worry about the cost of an attorney.
We handle all cases on a contingency fee basis, meaning you do not pay any attorney fees unless we recover for you!
