The first thing you need to do if you have been in an accident is to take care of your health. If you have been injured, you need to go to the hospital or the emergency room right away to take care of your injuries. Even if it doesnt feel like you have been hurt, you need to have someone check you out in case you got an injury that doesnt immediately show itself.

If you have had any property damage to your vehicle, whether it is a car, a bike, a truck, or another form of transportation, your lawyer will help you through the process of getting the vehicle repaired if it was damaged or replaced if it was totaled. We know how difficult it can be to operate without a vehicle to get around, and we will assist you as you repair your car or find a new one. Also, with the costs of your medical bills already emptying your bank account, paying for your vehicle repair or replacement can be a huge financial burden. Your lawyer will help you get the settlement money you need and deserve from the insurance companies.
It is possible that the insurance companies involved in the accident have already contacted you in an attempt to offer you a settlement for your claim. In the vast majority of cases, the insurance companies will offer you a settlement that is much lower than what you deserve for your medical costs and your property damage costs. This is when the assistance of a personal injury lawyer comes in. Because of our experience handling these kinds of cases, we know when an insurance company is not treating you fairly. We will negotiate with the insurance company about your claim in order to get you the settlement that you deserve for your medical costs, your car repair or replacement, and your pain and suffering. We will even take the case to court if necessary to ensure that the insurance company will be legally obligated to treat you fairly. Dont hesitate to call our offices if you have been injured in an auto accident.
