What You Need to Do
If you have been the victim of a motor vehicle accident, there are a few steps you should take to protect your rights, and to ensure you receive proper compensation for any injuries or damages. You should always seek medical attention immediately, even if you don’t think your injuries are serious. It’s always better to be sure, and to have a record from a medical professional. It’s also important to obtain an accident report from the police to keep with your medical report. These pieces of information will be crucial when making a claim. Next, contact your insurance company to file a claim on your vehicle. If possible, at the scene of the accident you should take photos and get the contact information of the other party and any witnesses.
Once you have this information, call a specialized motor vehicle accident attorney. Never speak with the other party’s insurance company and never provide a statement. Don’t take any steps with the other party, or sign anything, until consulting an attorney. It is extremely important that you don’t admit to any liability, and that you don’t accept offers from an insurance company for the estimate of your injuries. These are all things that you will need legal advice on in order to obtain the appropriate amount of compensation.
Often, medical bills and vehicle repairs end up costing much more than an initial estimate, and an experienced attorney can make sure you’re covered in the event that bills pile up or you need ongoing treatment or support in the case of lost wages.

“I was involved in a motor vehicle accident where the other driver ran a red light and my car was a total loss. I was referred to James Cunningham due to the fact that our attorney’s have been very impressed with James Cunningham’s work. This fact turned out to be very true as Mr. Cunningham helped me win my case to a full and maximum settlement.”
