    • WHAT TYPE OF COMPENSATION WILL I BE ENTITLED TO RECEIVE?
      The nature of your accident and extent of your injuries will directly determine the types and amount of compensation you may be entitled to receive. In accidents resulting from another person's negligence or carelessness, you could seek compensation to cover medical expenses, lost wages or future earning potential, rehabilitation and therapy costs, pain and suffering you have had to endure, plus much more. In wrongful death cases, immediate family members may be entitled to seek compensation for loss of companionship and financial support as well.

    • WHAT STEPS SHOULD I TAKE AFTER AN ACCIDENT?
      There are a number of steps we advise accident victims take following a car accident, in addition to receiving medical attention and giving a statement to police. You are required by law to exchange contact and insurance information with all involved parties. Take photographs of the damage to your vehicle immediately. You may not have another opportunity to do so. Documenting the exact location of your accident, the time and date it took place, name of all involved parties, contact information for any potential witnesses, a clear description of the vehicles and damage caused, any injuries sustained by either you or other parties, will help us build a solid case on your behalf. Pictures and video can also be extremely valuable when determining liability and fault.
    • SHOULD I CONTACT THE POLICE AFTER AN ACCIDENT?
      Yes, one of the first things you should do after being involved in a car accident is contact the police. Even in minor accidents, the police will take your written statement and file an official accident report. You will want to have this report when seeking financial compensation to cover vehicle repairs, medical expenses and other accident-related costs as it could go a long way towards substantiating your claim and proving fault.
    • DO I NEED TO SEE A DOCTOR IF I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN A CAR ACCIDENT?
      If you have been involved in a car accident and you believe you may have sustained any injuries, seeing a doctor will be an essential part of proving your claim. This should be done regardless of whether you receive emergency medical treatment at the scene of the accident or not. In some cases symptoms and signs of injury will not present themselves until hours or even days after the accident. The moment you experience any pain or discomfort, do not hesitate to see a doctor.
