Don't wait for the other driver or the insurance company to make you an offer that doesn't even come close to covering the true cost of your accident. Put yourself back in the driver's seat.

What should I do after a car accident?
Your first priority is to make sure the scene is safe. Then, call the police and stay at the scene until they arrive. Exchange insurance information and contact information with the other driver, but keep your comments brief; avoid saying “I’m sorry” or anything else that could be construed as admitting fault. Get medical attention as soon as possible, and call an attorney right away, before you talk to the insurance company.
Do I have to see a doctor after a car crash?
You absolutely should see a doctor, even if you feel fine. Car crashes can cause internal organ damage and brain injuries that may not be obvious right away. Getting checked out by a doctor is the best option to protect your health. Seeing a doctor also creates a record of your injuries in case the insurance company later tries to dispute them.
How much is my car accident worth?
The value of your car accident depends on the extent of your injuries and the effects those injuries have had on your life. If you’re going to be out of work for a long time or need ongoing medical treatment, your losses could be quite substantial. The only way to accurately assess the value of your claim is to talk to a lawyer who can investigate and calculate your damages.
Should I accept a settlement for a car accident?
Always talk to a lawyer before you take money from an insurance company. Once you’ve accepted their offer, that’s it; you can’t go back and ask for more if your costs end up being higher than expected. You should operate on the assumption that any settlement an insurance company offers you is a “low-ball” offer intended to protect their bottom line.
How much does a car accident lawyer cost?
You don’t pay anything out of pocket to hire a lawyer for a car accident. We work on a contingency fee basis: if we win your case, our fee is a percentage of your recovery. If we don’t win, you don’t pay us at all. There’s no cost for the initial consultation, either, so you really have nothing to lose. Statistically, people who hire a lawyer or even at least talk to a lawyer recover much more than people who try to deal with the insurance company alone.
