We represent persons who have been seriously injured in motor vehicle accidents caused by other drivers who have failed to keep their vehicles under control, thereby causing an accident. The first thing anyone who is hurt in an accident should do is to go to the emergency room in order to document the injuries you have sustained and to get the proper tests performed, such as x-rays, MRI’s, and CT Scans, which will determine the seriousness of your injuries. It is important that you provide the hospital with your auto insurance policy number because your auto insurance will be paying for your treatment in the hospital. Do not provide them with health insurance documents.
After you have been to the emergency room, or in the case of very serious injuries in which you have been hospitalized for a period of time, call our office. Do not talk to any representative of the at-fault driver, including his/her insurance company. We will schedule an appointment for you as soon as possible so that we can get the details of your injuries and how the accident happened. We will then refer you to a doctor who will schedule you for any additional tests that need to be done and prescribe physical therapy for treatment of your injuries.
Once you have completed your treatment, we will get the medical records and discuss with you our evaluation of your case. We will then talk to the insurance company for the at-fault driver who caused your injuries to see if your case can be settled. If it can’t, we will file a lawsuit on your behalf against the at-fault driver.
In the event that the police issued a ticket to the at-fault driver charging him or her with careless or reckless driving, we will request the police report. Once the at-fault driver pleads guilty to the charges, we will request a certified disposition of the same from the municipal court.
Based on our experience in numerous auto accident cases over the years, we understand the importance of moving your case against the at-fault driver along and ultimately obtaining fair compensation for your injuries. In this regard, we are familiar with the Automobile Insurance Cost Reduction Act (AICRA), which became law in 1998, and its guidelines and restrictions on auto accident injury lawsuits.
Our goal is to provide you with complete and compassionate representation of you for the best resolution of your case.
