If you are injured in a car accident, you should seek necessary medical treatment immediately. If possible, take photos of the vehicles and the scene of the accident. Even if you are not injured, it is important that you call 911. On site, the police officer will often speak to both drivers, witnesses, etc. and make an initial determination of fault. The police officer will give you a case number and will incorporate his findings into a “traffic report” that is usually available in 3-5 days after the accident.
Once you have received initial medical treatment, you should call our office immediately! If necessary, we can help you find medical professionals who are willing to provide you the medical treatment that you need. We can also set up your personal injury and property damage claims with the insurance company, determine and verify what insurance coverages are available to you, contact potential witness and obtain statements, and obtain police reports. If we are unable to resolve your case directly with the insurance company, we file your case in District Court. Once it is filed, we work to aggressively develop your case and prepare it for mediation and/or trial.
