You Can Ask Us Your Questions

It is normal to have a variety of concerns and questions after surviving an accident. You can turn to our knowledgeable team members for the answers you need. Please read ahead to see some of the information that we often provide to our prospective clients.

How do I determine who is at fault?

Identifying the at-fault party or parties is not easy. There are many techniques that we use to investigate the accident and determine fault, including:

  • Interviewing witnesses
  • Reviewing photographs and video footage
  • Reading the police report
  • Examining the accident scene

Be aware that the other driver and their insurance provider will try to claim that you were at fault, not them. You need experienced lawyers like us who can put together conclusive evidence of fault.

What should you do after an accident?

After the car crash, you can take some actions to increase your chances of maximizing your compensation. First, be sure to report the accident to the police and your insurance company. Next, collect pictures and video footage of the scene; also, be sure to collect the contact and insurance information of the driver who caused the crash and their vehicle information as well. Finally, contact us to get the guidance you need to secure the compensation you deserve.

What is a claim worth?

Your compensation claim should cover the current and future costs of your economic and noneconomic damages. Common examples of economic costs include lost income, loss of earning potential, cost of relocating or renovating to accommodate a disability, and property damage. Noneconomic damages include loss of consortium (a long-term relationship), emotional therapy, and pain and suffering. We can help you earn a settlement that accurately reflects the cost of your injuries.

What does a lawyer do for a claim?

In addition to negotiating for the full and fair compensation you deserve, your lawyer acts on your behalf throughout the claim. They can guide you away from making costly mistakes in your claim, expedite the claim to bring you your money sooner, and complete any complicated or challenging steps in your claim for you, so you can focus on your health and recovering from your injuries.

Do I really need a car accident attorney?

Yes. The law is immensely complicated, as is the claims process. Plus, the insurance company will doe everything it can to avoid paying the full amount that you deserve. You need a team to advocate for you and ensure no one takes advantage of you.
