Frequently ASked Questions

Do I call the police?

Yes, you should call the police and ask them to come to the scene to make a report.

Am I suing the person who hit me?

You are filing a claim against the insurance company of the person who was at fault. We all have insurance, and that is what it is for. If someone hits you, you deserve to be compensated.

Will I have to go to court?

98% of cases do not go to court. If you are worried about having a claim because of the court, please call us. We will be happy to explain the pros and cons to you. It is also your decision if you want to go to court or not.

Do I have a choice of where I can get my car fixed?

Yes, you can take your car to a shop of your choice. You do not have to go to one of the shops the insurance company tells you to go to.

How long will the process take?

Every case is different. It will depend on the severity of the injuries, the treatment, the insurance company, and your attorney.

How much money will I recover? What is my case worth?

There are so many factors that go into the value of a case. It also depends on the amount of insurance there is to go after.

How can I get my car fixed?

You can go through your insurance (permitting you have proper coverage) or the insurance of the person who hit you, permitting they are at fault and have sufficient coverage.

Should I speak with the other person at the scene?

No! The less you say, the better. Simply exchange insurance information.

Why do I need a personal injury attorney?

We will get you the treatment you need and the compensation you deserve. Insurance companies, even your own, will try to give you as little compensation as possible when you file a claim.

What do I do if the other insurance company calls me for a recorded statement?

Do NOT make a recorded statement without an attorney on your side. Even if you are 100% honest, they will try to twist your words. They are not on your side.

Will it cost me money to get an attorney?

No, you do not have to pay anything upfront. We work on a contingency fee, meaning we only recover if we obtain a settlement on your behalf.

What if I am not a U.S. Citizen?

Your citizenship has no bearing on whether you are entitled to have a claim. You are still allowed to have a personal injury claim.

What if I don't have health insurance? How can I get medical care?

It is okay if you do not have health insurance. Call us, and we are happy to get you to a doctor right away. Medical providers will treat you on a lien and wait until the case settles to be paid.

Does my immigration status affect my ability to have a car accident claim?

No, it does not. You can still have a claim! Give us a call for more details.
