Have you been hurt in an automobile accident?
Automobile accidents are the most common causes of personal injury, and there are many factors to consider when determining what compensation you’re owed. The extent of your injuries, your medical bills (past and future), lost time from work, missed opportunities, the culpabilities of the negligent driver, and how the wreck occurred are all important aspects of your case.
What should I do right now?
Seek medical attention
If you are in need of medical treatment, seek it as soon as it is practical. We recommend that you receive an evaluation from an EMS at the very least.
It’s not uncommon for symptoms, sometimes serious ones, to develop hours or even days after a collision. You should always prioritize your health and seek appropriate care at an emergency room, urgent care, or primary care doctor.
If you need to see a chiropractor or receive physical therapy as a result of your accident, Williams & Williams can refer you to a trusted care provider in your area.
Document the accident
While we trust law enforcement to make a preliminary investigation into collisions, there is often more to the story. We can use videos, photos, accident reconstruction, and other evidence to best determine how a collision occurred.
You or a trusted friend or family member should take photos of the vehicles and scene if possible, especially any visible damage. Make sure the investigating officer on the scene gives you a report about the collision, alerts you of any court dates, and gets witness contact information.

It’s never too soon to seek legal representation. Before you contact your insurance company, reach out to the the skilled attorneys at Williams & Williams. We can help you craft a statement about the collision.
Contact your insurance company
Alert your insurer of the accident. Even if you receive a ticket—or the police officer cites you for contributing to the cause of the accident—you are still able to pursue a claim.
When should you call an attorney?
Right away. From the moment you’re involved in an automobile accident, the insurance company is working to pay you as little as possible, so speak with an attorney as soon as possible regarding your accident and injuries to ensure you receive fair compensation.
