Q: What should I do immediately following an automobile accident?
A: If an individual has been harmed in the accident, contact emergency personnel and police as soon as possible.
Q: What information should I gather following an automobile accident?
A: It is important to gather all involved names, license plate numbers, and contact information, in addition to insurance information.
Q: Should I be interacting with the other motorist's insurance company?
A: It is strongly recommended that before speaking with any other insurance company you talk to a personal injury lawyer. You should never offer a statement to the other motorist's insurance company. Insurance companies will frequently attempt to portray an altered picture of how the crash happened and trick you into admitting partial or full guilt.
Q: Should I seek medical care even though I don't feel injured?
A: It is usually highly recommended to get checked out by a doctor soon after an automobile accident occurred. In many cases, pain may not set in for a few days after the accident and some injuries, such as whiplash injury, can take a while to develop. Waiting too long to receive medical attention could impact your chances of acquiring fair compensation for your case.

Q: Do I really need to hire a lawyer?
