Car Accidents


Auto accidents are the leading cause of death for Americans under the age of thirty-four and cause a total of more than 40,000 deaths per year. Almost everyone is likely to be involved in an auto accident at least once in a lifetime. The attorneys at our firm are experienced in handling cases involving car accident victims and have been successful in helping a client receive over $600,000 after suffering multiple neck and back injuries related to an auto accident.

If you are in a car accident, always call the police immediately even if no one was injured and file an accident report. The auto accident report is critical to establishing fault, so be sure that the report includes interviews with all involved parties and all witnesses. If you can, take pictures of the auto accident, and gather as much information as possible. Collect the names and phone numbers of witnesses, as well as anyone involved in the accident itself. If you or anyone was injured, seek medical attention immediately.

Car accidents frequently cause injuries such as whiplash, head and brain injury, paralysis, and joint, bone, and muscle injuries. To successfully show an injury was caused by the accident, it is important to seek treatment as soon as possible after the accident occurs. The longer you delay, the more difficult it may be to prove the accident caused the injury.

Most auto accidents are promptly handled by the insurance company of each party. However, when there are serious injuries or extensive property damage, it may be necessary to file a lawsuit to recover the additional costs of medical treatment, loss of property, and lost wages.
