Automobile Accidents
The majority of injury cases we handle are the result of accidents involving automobiles, trucks, motorcycles or bicycles. If you are involved in an accident and you feel that you might be even slightly injured, the emergency room of your local hospital or your family doctor's office should be your first stop as soon as possible after the accident.  Injuries should be treated as soon as possible.. If the injuries turn out to be serious, then it may be time to contact an attorney.

Do I Need an Attorney?

A question we are often asked is whether or not an attorney is required after an auto accident. The answer depends on the circumstances of the accident. If the accident is truly just a very minor "fender-bender," and it is certain that no one is injured, the chances are that a lawyer may not be required and you can take care of the case with your own auto insurance company and some negotiation with the opposing party's insurance company. But if the situation becomes more complicated, especially if it appears that you are going to need further medical treatment, then it might be time to consult with an attorney to discuss how best to handle dealings with medical providers and insurance companies.
Unless your accident was completely minor and you are sure you have no injuries, head straight for the nearest Emergency Room or your family doctor for examination.
Get recommended treatment. Use health insurance and auto policy medpay to pay if you are covered.
Organize and prepare all relevant medical, police, damage and health records in case you need to present them.
