Do I Need a Car Accident Attorney?
When you’ve been in a car accident, you need to focus on recovering from your injuries and taking care of your family. A car accident attorney will take on the burden of dealing with insurance companies and lawyers to get you the compensation you deserve. An experienced attorney is accustomed to going up against insurance companies and law firms, making sure they pay what is owed. They will make sure that your insurance company pays out the personal injury protection coverage in your policy to take care of medical bills and lost wages. And if the other party turns out not to have enough insurance to cover your damages, a car accident attorney will go back to your insurance company to get the underinsured/uninsured motorist coverage you are due under your policy.
If you must go to trial on your claims, a car accident attorney will be your guide through the justice system, ensuring that your claims are timely filed and that the proper parties are served so that you do not miss out on enforcing your essential rights. A car accident attorney experienced in litigation will know how to respond to notices from the trial court and motions from the other party, making sure that your case isn’t dismissed before it even gets in front a jury. And at trial, a car accident attorney will vigorously argue your case to a jury to obtain a favorable verdict and a judgment that compensates you for your losses.

Frequently Asked Questions
If you suffered severe or catastrophic injuries in a car accident, you deserve more than just an apology from the person responsible. You deserve answers and justice. Our team is here to provide you with both. Call us at (513) 351-5997 to discuss your specific situation during a confidential consultation. Also, read below to find the answers to some frequently asked questions:
What should I do after a car accident?
If you are able and after you’ve made sure that no one at the scene is in immediate medical trouble, take photos of the vehicles involved in the accident as well as the accident scene itself. Try to get pictures of the position of vehicles after the accident, the exact damage to the vehicles, the lighting and weather condition at the scene, the positions of signs or traffic controls, and the presence of skid marks and other evidence that may be lost when the accident scene is cleaned up and the vehicles are removed. Photographs can be critical to proving your case.
If emergency services don’t respond to the accident scene, call the police to investigate the accident. The police report may be the determining factor that proves the other party is at fault for the accident.
Avoid speaking with the other driver, except to see whether they need medical attention. You don’t want to make any admissions of fault or make any statements that can later be used to argue you were responsible for the accident. Also, refrain from speaking to the other party’s insurance company adjusters. If you talk to your own insurance company, don’t make any admission of fault. If your insurance company asks you to sign documentation, do not do so until an attorney reviews it.
Visit with your primary care provider even if you were taken to the hospital after your accident. You may have injuries you were not initially aware of and getting treatment immediately after your accident may be necessary to prove that your injuries were caused by the accident and not by some subsequent event or medical condition.
Finally, you should contact a car accident attorney to discuss your case. An attorney can advise you about your situation and the compensation you may be entitled.
- Past and future medical expenses
- Past and future lost wages and income
- Past and future pain and suffering
- Expenses to adapt your home for any permanent disabilities
- Loss of quality or enjoyment of life and life activities
- Property damage
