What is the procedure if I am involved in an automobile collision?

 First call 911 and request police and/or medical assistance if needed.

Collect the relevant information from the other driver. This includes his or her address, phone numbers, insurance company name, policy number and information provided by the witnesses.

If possible take photographs of the scene of the accident.

Do not speak openly about the accident except to the police and your attorney. Afterwards you may need to give a statement to your insurance company.

 When should I call an attorney following my automobile accident?

Call the attorney immediately. Do not give a statement to the other driver’s insurance company until you have spoken with an accredited and experienced personal injury attorney.

What if I am involved in a hit and run collision and the other driver (who is at-fault) doesn't have insurance?

If you have uninsured motorist's coverage on your auto insurance you can pursue an injury claim.

How long will it take to settle my claim and what is it worth?

Until you have recovered, received medical treatment and returned to work, it is not possible to determine the value of your case. We make sure to thoroughly review your case and to properly prepare demand packages after receiving all medical bills, records and wage loss documentation. Most of these cases settle quickly depending how long you received medical treatment and were in recovery.

Can I expect my case to go to court?

What is the fee?
