You want answers to questions such as:
Whose fault is the car accident?
How much will this cost?
What if the at fault driver has no insurance?
What if the insurance company refuses to pay?
How will I pay for my medical treatment?
What do I do next?
Whom can I call for help?

What Should You Do After an Accident?
If you have been involved in an accident or incident that has left you with injured, seek proper medical attention. Seeing a professional healthcare professional ensures that you get the treatment needed for your injuries. It also provides critical evidence of your injuries.
If you are in a position to do so, take photos of your injuries as well as the accident scene. Write down the contact details of the witnesses and anybody else involved. If law enforcement officers are involved, write down the names of the responding officers. You also need to get a copy of the police report to help you build your case.
Consider contacting us or another personal injury lawyer as quickly as possible. Then, call your insurance provider to start an accident benefits claim. The insurance company will probably assign a bodily injury advisor for reviewing your case. Some simple and straightforward forms will need to be completed.
Send us a copy of your vehicle insurance coverage and we will determine if your insurance covers all of the necessities in the event of a vehicle accident. If you have any further questions call our office or in case of an emergency call us at (602) 677-8924
What If My Injury was Minor?
People often associate personal injury lawsuits with accidents that cause major injuries. Accidents that result in just minor injuries might not seem like a big deal, but you will require a lawyer even if you have sustained only minor injuries from your accident.
Minor injuries often lead to unforeseeable consequences for the accident victim. For example, he/she might be unable to return to work performing the same tasks. The victim might also need to depend on loved ones for help with daily tasks until he/she recovers from the injuries, which may cause stress for both the victim and his/her family.
Minor injuries might also become complicated later. The victim might develop a different condition due to the injuries sustained in the accident. For instance, a victim that suffers a broken foot in a car accident might fail to heal properly causing him/her to require surgery. That surgery is regarded as a side effect of the minor injury sustained in the accident.

The critical issue in most personal injury cases is how a “reasonable person” would be expected to act in the specific situation that led to the injury. A person is deemed to be at fault if he/she doesn’t act as a “reasonable person” would have.
The determination of fault has many different facets, but the most important ones are:
A jury determining whether a particular person meets the standard of “reasonable person,” which typically happens after evidence is presented and argued in court.
Your lawyer investigating the case and gathering evidence to prove that you didn’t cause the accident. Photographs, witness statements, police statements, and medical evaluation records can all be used to establish fault and should aid in getting the settlement you warrant.
