Personal Injury Frequently Asked Questions

What information do I need to get after a car accident?

  •  You should get contact information from possible witnesses and the following information from all drivers or parties involved:

    • Name and contact information (telephone numbers and address)
    • Driver’s license number
    • Insurance information
    • Vehicle information (plate number and make, model, year and color)
  • Note: You should also take pictures of the scene, the vehicles involved, all damages that were caused by the accident and your initial injuries. This will help to preserve your memory of what happened and could be key evidence if there is a dispute regarding liability and dispute regarding the extent of damages caused by the accident.

How do I know I may have a claim worth pursuing?

  • In general, if a person sustained injuries as a result of the negligent actions of a person(s) or entity(ies), the injured party may pursue a claim against the people/entities that caused his/her injuries. Of course, if you are making a claim for compensation, you must be prepared to show proof of the negligent party’s responsibility and must show acceptable proof of injuries and damages. If you have any doubt whether or not you have a valid claim, you should consult an experienced personal injury attorney. Remember that all attorneys view cases differently, so if the first attorney you contact declines to represent you, you should not be discouraged.

I was in an accident and was injured. What should I do first?

  • See a doctor, whether it’s your primary care doctor, hospital emergency room or Urgent Care. Even if you don’t believe your injuries are serious, most symptoms worsen a few hours or a day after the accident. Get the medical care you need and get it promptly to avoid suffering and to avoid further possible long-term health problems. Your first and foremost concern should be your health.

Should I call the police after an accident?

  • Yes, especially if there is significant property damage, bodily injury, or a scenario where liability will be disputed.
