Your Automobile Insurance
As soon as possible, please provide our office with a copy of your automobile insurance declaration sheet detailing your insurance provider. This step is very important, even if your accident was minor. If you have any questions about this step, please call our office immediately.
Do Not Talk
Do not discuss your case with anyone. The reason for this is that what may appear to be an innocent remark on your part may be distorted or changed by others, especially the other party’s insurance company. If anyone calls you regarding the accident, obtain their name and phone number and advise them that your attorney will contact them. As soon as possible, call us and advise us who called. We will call them back immediately and speak to them on your behalf.
Do Not Sign
Do not sign any papers. Do not sign any statements, forms, reports, or any other documents unless we tell you to do so. If you are ever in doubt, call your personal injury lawyer first to ask for advice.
Photographs are one of the most important elements of your case. Pictures are worth a thousand words, and the more of them you can take, the better. We need photos of the damage to the car you were in, any visible injuries you received (including cuts, bruises, and lacerations). If you cannot take the photos yourself, call our office and we will arrange to have the photographs taken. Do not hesitate, as proper documentation will be essential in court.
