Auto Accidents
You shouldn’t have to pay for someone else’s negligence. If you’ve been in a car accident caused by another driver’s recklessness, you may be entitled to compensation.

Car Accident FAQs

What should I do after a car accident?

Before you do anything else, call emergency services. Remain at the scene until a police officer arrives, and exchange any relevant information with the other driver if possible (their name, driver’s license number, vehicle make and model, and insurance company information). Remember, do NOT admit or suggest you are at fault when speaking to anyone at the accident scene. 

Once you are cleared to leave the scene, seek medical attention as soon as possible, even if you don’t think you are injured. Then, call a personal injury lawyer to get trusted legal advice on your next steps.

Do I need to hire an attorney after a car accident?
While you may go through the entire claims process on your own, hiring a personal injury attorney has many benefits. With our legal understanding, we can fight for a more robust settlement than the negligent driver’s insurance will initially offer. We can also help you avoid costly mistakes that can set your claim back or invalidate it altogether. If you’re not sure whether you need legal counsel, call Derek L. Casey for a consultation today.
What kinds of losses and damages can I be compensated for?

We will thoroughly review your case to determine all of your losses and damages, not only the surface-level damages that the other driver’s insurance company is likely to offer in an initial settlement. These can include:

  • Your vehicle’s repair or replacement cost
  • The cost of temporary transportation while waiting for repairs
  • Out-of-pocket medical expenses, plus future expenses for long-term care needs
  • The value of wages you lost as a result of your injuries
  • Loss of earning potential if your injuries interfere with your work long-term
  • Physical pain and suffering
