Motor Vehicle Accidents

Car accidents can result in medical bills, lost wages, and other out-of-pocket expenses. To seek compensation for your injuries, it is important to have an attorney who can navigate the insurance process and the court process.  If you are involved in a car accident, make sure you have done the following:

  • Make a police report

  • Seek professional medical attention immediately.  

  • Obtain each driver's name, driver's license number, contact information, and insurance information.

  • Obtain insurance information for every vehicle involved.

  • Obtain the name and contact information of each witness.

  • Take photos of the accident, the vehicles involved, any injuries, and the surroundings of the scene.

  • Write down as many details about the accident as possible, including which direction the vehicles came from, road conditions, injuries, damage any vehicles, when the police arrived, and what the police did upon arrival.

  • If you suspect a driver was texting, under the influence, or driving unsafely prior the accident, notify the police immediately.
