FAQ

When a motor vehicle accident occurs, there are simple steps that should be taken to help any claim. It is understandable that you are worried about your health, your family and who is at fault, and confused about the process created by insurance companies, for insurance companies. Once an accident occurs and a claim is made, an insurance company’s priority is its own financial interests; your interests are secondary. The best thing to do is to contact a lawyer immediately to obtain information about what you should do. Time is of the essence. Do not delay!

  • After an accident, at the scene, try to remain calm and ensure you and your passengers are safe. Call emergency services if immediate medical attention is required. If you can, take photos of the scene from different angles. include road conditions, the street, all vehicles and the overall scene. Take many photos of your vehicle. Retain as much evidence as possible.
  • Speak with witnesses and obtain their contact information so you could speak with them later.
  • Exchange insurance information with other drivers.
  • Do not discuss who is responsible for the accident. Speak with the police and allow them to fill out their reports without an admission of guilt from you.
  • Contact your insurance company and report the collision, and share all of the facts with them immediately, as your mind will lose some details over time. Make notes for yourself as well, and record conversations on your phone if you feel threatened in any way.
  • Contact a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. The sooner you do this, the more an experienced lawyer can help you navigate the process and preserve your interests.
