You likely have questions after an accident. Below are some frequently asked questions and our answers:

Should I see a doctor after an accident?

Yes. Even if you do not feel hurt immediately after the accident, you may still have injuries. Some injuries do not show any symptoms until days or even weeks after the crash. It is important to be properly evaluated by a doctor to diagnose any injuries and to start receiving medical care.

Why do I need a lawyer?

After an accident, the insurance company may not be protecting your interests. A lawyer will protect you and make sure you are treated fairly by the insurance company and all parties involved. An attorney will also guide you through the process of filing a claim to make sure everything is done correctly.

What should I look for when hiring an attorney?

Your lawyer should have experience handling personal injury claims, including trial experience. Our personal injury attorneys bring more than 50 years of trial experience to your case.

Do I have a legal case against the driver?

Every case depends on specific factors, like who caused the accident and if there were any other contributing factors. You may be able to file a personal injury claim against the driver and any other parties involved in the crash, such as the company the driver was working for.

Do I have a case if I was a passenger?

Yes. You can still file a claim against the driver’s insurance company if you were injured as a passenger. These claims can get tricky, especially depending on your relationship with the driver, so it is best to have an attorney handling your claim.

My airbag didn’t deploy. Do I have a case?

You may be able to file a product liability claim against the manufacturer of the airbag. Defective airbags can cause serious and fatal injuries, so do not wait to speak with us if you or a loved one was harmed by a defective airbag.

What is my case worth?

The value of your case all depends on who can be held liable, the insurance policy and the damages. We work with top experts to make sure all factors are carefully evaluated to determine the maximum amount of compensation available in your claim.
