Preserving Evidence Of Liability In Car Accidents

Within 48 hours after an accident occurs, most of the evidence about how the accident happened may have been removed, destroyed or lost. It’s important to find out if the police made a report and what was in that report. It’s also important to take pictures of the wrecked vehicles, skid marks and other evidence at the scene. Our lawyers often hire private investigators and use accident reconstruction experts who can testify how an accident happened in case liability is later contested. We can also guide you through what to do following a motor vehicle injury.

Getting Medical Care And Rehabilitation Services

Working with your doctor and other experts, we will identify all of the medical care and rehabilitation services you need. We will then provide results-oriented representation in settlement negotiations or in court, seeking the financial resources that can pay for that care.

The Risks Of Communicating With Insurance Companies

Communicating with the insurance company adjuster on the other side is risky. Most people have no prior experience dealing with the medical and legal consequences of a serious personal injury or with the loss that accompanies the wrongful death of a loved one. But insurance companies are sophisticated machines whose sole objective is to minimize the amount that they have to pay on injury or death claims or to prevent them from being paid at all. Without an attorney to protect your interests, you could say or do something that the insurance company might attempt to use to deny or limit your claim.
