We stand up to all types of negligent drivers
We fight to make our roads safer through accountability and help our clients rebuild their lives. We represent people hurt in all types of car accidents, including:
- Rear-end accidents
- Head-on collisions
- T-bone/broadside accidents
- Bicycle accidents
- Pedestrian accidents
Our job is to get to the bottom of what happened and hold the driver who hit you accountable. We pore over accident reports, investigate the scene of the crash, interview witnesses, and when necessary, retain experts to help us reconstruct what happened. Our job is to find proof that the driver who hit you was speeding, distracted, drunk, or simply careless – and to hold their insurance company responsible for paying for the accident.
Getting full value for a car accident injury isn’t easy. The insurance companies may do everything in their power to pay you as little as possible, or nothing at all. They may downplay the extent of your injuries or claim you have a pre-existing condition. They may also try to blame you for the accident.
You were there. You know what happened. Our job is to tell your story and find the proof that backs you up. We will relentlessly advocate for your interests throughout the process, in negotiations and, if necessary, at trial.
What to do after a car accident in Parkersburg
There are a few things you need to do as soon as possible after a crash. First, call the police. The Parkersburg Police Department or the West Virginia State Police will secure the scene and conduct an initial investigation. Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver; if it’s not safe to do so, wait for the police to arrive and help. You also need to start your own investigation. If you are healthy enough to do so, take pictures of the scene, get contact information for any witnesses, and as soon as possible, write down everything you remember about the crash.
See a doctor as soon as possible, even if you feel okay. Go to the emergency department at Camden Clark or another nearby medical facility. Tell the doctor who sees you about all your symptoms and don’t leave anything out. This is important for your health – and it creates a record of your injuries to support your injury claim.
You do need to notify your insurance company that you were in an accident. But as soon as possible, ideally before you talk to the insurance company, contact us. If you’ve already notified your insurance company, that’s okay too. The important thing is that you get a Parkersburg car accident attorney on your side as soon as possible so that we can start investigating the accident and building your case for the compensation you need.
