We have represented a large number of serious automobile accident victims who have suffered disfigurement and/or disabilities. We take great pride in limiting our representation to plaintiffs and in representing no insurance companies involved in these claims. We are committed to treating each case with the seriousness it deserves in order to assure that each of our clients receives the compensation that he or she deserves.
WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE INVOLVED IN AN ACCIDENT
In spite of our best efforts, and no matter how careful we are, sooner or later many of us will be involved in an automobile accident. When that happens, our first concern is getting well. Each year, we represent many injured persons. Based upon our experience, we recommend that you do the following to control the financial cost of an accident:
1. Check for injuries and call the police.
2. Exchange names, addresses, phone numbers, drivers license numbers and registration numbers.
3. Write down the name, address and phone number of any witnesses. If you can't get that information, write down their license plate numbers.
4. Record the names and badge numbers of police officers who responded to the accident. Keep a record of the circumstances that surrounding the accident. Do this as soon as possible, while the facts are still fresh in your mind. Don't give this information to anyone except your attorney.
5. Do not settle bodily injury claims with insurance companies before consulting with your attorney. Insurance adjusters will frequently attempt to settle claims before an attorney is involved. They know they can usually settle claims for far less if an attorney is not involved.
