How You Know it’s Time to Hire a Personal Injury Lawyer

Immediately following your car accident you will be contacted by the insurance company. They will be eager to settle your claim and move on. You will likely be offered a low settlement amount that may not even cover your medical bills, lost wages or property damage. At Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban we don’t think that’s fair.

We think it’s important to gather all the facts; evaluate the damage and your injuries caused by the accident before we put a value on your claim. It’s vital that you; seek medical care for any injuries sustained during the accident and treat with your doctor accordingly, take photos of the damage to your vehicle and the scene surrounding the accident and contact an experienced accident attorney to help you maximize your personal injury claim.

Before you speak with the insurance company, Call Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban Law Firm. Our advice is free and you don’t pay us anything unless we win your case. Call us at (888) 351-1038 or contact us online to schedule a consultation.

    Thanks for sharing. I was in an accident last week, and I was sure to get as many pictures as I could. I think the police took more than I did. I could really use some help getting my medical bills paid for.

    I have never been in a car accident, but I decided I should research what options are available if I ever am. I figure its better to be prepared and have a plan, than just try and figure it out when it happens. I want to make sure that I would get all the benefits I deserve. I can see myself wanting to call the insurance company right away, but maybe speaking with a lawyer first would be better so they can help me know what my rights are. I will make sure that I have lawyers in mind to choose from in case this does ever happen.

    My son was in an automobile accident this morning. It has been pretty scary because no one in our family has even been in an accident before. We will make sure that we seek medical care for the injuries sustained during the accident and work with the doctor. We agree that is a good suggestion. I will tell my son to also take photos of the damage to the vehicle. Thanks for letting us know these things.

    I appreciate the information on hiring a personal injury lawyer. I agree that it is important to ensure that you are taken care of after an accident and that you don’t accept an amount that is too low by the insurance company. My brother is looking for a personal injury lawyer, I will be sure to share this with him.

    I’m going on a big road trip and I want to make sure that I’m ready for anything. I didn’t realize it was so important to call a personal injury attorney immediately after a car accident! I’ll make sure I keep that in mind, just in case the unthinkable happens.

    I was in a bit of a car accident, and I ended up getting hurt. It makes sense that I would want to get a professional lawyer to vouch for me in court! That would make it so that I don’t get ganged up on.

    Fortunately for me, I followed this exact same advice to call a personal injury lawyer. It was a few years ago and has been settled, but it made a huge difference. Like you said, it helps get a bigger settlement to help with lost wages, property damage, medical bills and much more. Thanks for spreading the word out.

    I never thought of what I should do after a car accident. My father has recently been involved in one and, as you mentioned, was contacted by his insurance. Thankfully he didn’t settle on a claim quite yet, but I am glad that I found your article. Now that you mention gathering the cost of damage and injuries I think he should hire a lawyer. I will be sure to pass this along.
