When an accident happens, injured people and their families need help of all kinds

Immediately after a serious crash, life can become overwhelming. Initially, injuries need to be evaluated and treated. Injured people often must miss work as they heal, and must deal with doctor appointments and growing medical bills. 

Insurance companies get involved immediately after a crash

Many people are surprised to learn that immediately after an accident, insurance adjusters from both sides get involved, to obtain information and statements, to try to coordinate vehicle repair or replacement, and to pressure injured people to settle a claim. For less serious accidents, it is possible to handle your own insurance claim without legal assistance. But when injuries are serious, or when the fault for the crash is disputed, a personal injury attorney is needed.
