I’ve been involved in an accident…what happens now?

When involved in an accident your well-being is most the important aspect and we will fight to ensure your physical and emotional injuries are compensated. A personal injury accident can result in any of the following injuries:

• Loss of income (current or future income)
• Permanent or temporary physical impairment
• Decreased quality of life
• Overall pain and suffering

Do I have a case?
you should begin by asking yourself three basic questions: First, did you suffer a personal injury and not just property damage? Second, were your injuries caused by the negligence of another person or entity? Finally, do you have recoverable damages? If the answer to all three questions is “yes,” you may be able to obtain financial compensation for your injuries by bringing a personal injury lawsuit

Here’s some basic DO’s and DON’Ts when

dealing with a personal injury situation.


1. Report your accident as soon as possible.

2. Seek medical attention for any injuries.

3. Gather as much information as you can about the accident.

4. Contact a personal injury attorney.


1. Volunteer information to your insurance company regarding your claim.

2. Give your insurance company any recorded statement without talking to your attorney first.

3. Admit fault.

4. Negotiate directly with the other driver.

5. DON’T accept or sign any settlements from any insurance companies before speaking to an attorney.
