Should I receive medical treatment after an accident?

You should get medical attention following a car accident even if you feel fine. Medical records may help with filing an insurance claim and pursuing the compensation that is rightfully yours! A savvy attorney can negotiate on behalf of their client, ensuring you will be getting as much money from this unfortunate event without having to go through months or years worth of trial proceedings.  A person's damages could worsen due factors outside control by lawyers representing each party involved in court.

If there has been any damage done while driving such as severe spinal cord injury then immediate intervention must take place before permanent muscle loss occurs which would make it impossible for them to perform daily activities. 

If you've been injured in an accident, contact our lawyers as soon as possible! You deserve to be compensated for your losses and made whole. A skilled advocate can answer all of those questions about what happened so that when it comes time to take action on behalf or discuss legal options with liability insurance companies (or even press charges), we will have the best information available at our disposal.

How does a lawyer prove fault in an accident? 

Negligence is the primary reason why lawyers file a claim for their injured clients in an auto accident. Negligence occurs when someone does not exercise reasonable care and their actions cause injury or damage in another person. The negligent driver can be liable for damages awarded by the court to the injured party.  The easiest example of negligence occurs when one driver rear ends another vehicle. The driver who rear-ends another vehicle has usually acted negligently against the other driver, because the driver failed to obey traffic laws. 

Should I speak to the other driver's insurance company after an accident?

When an accident was not your fault, the other driver's insurance company will try to trick you into making statements that can lower the value of your claim. They also may offer a lowball settlement and refuse coverage for future medical treatments. It is best to speak to our car accident lawyers who can speak to the insurance company for you.  Just like you should never speak to the police as a suspect in a criminal investigation, you should never speak to the insurance company. They are not on your side. 

Did the police officer give the other driver a ticket? 

A police officer may have issued a ticket or a citation against the other driver. This is evidence that the other driver was at fault or responsible for the accident. However, there are certain instances when the police get it wrong. We can investigate your accident to determine if we think we can convince the insurance company that you were not at fault in the accident.
