File a car accident lawsuit

If you were injured in a car accident, it’s important that you contact us immediately to start your case and file a lawsuit. Since each state has a statute of limitations, placing time restrictions on how long you have to file a suit, time is of the essence. Our experienced auto accident lawyers will answer your questions and explain the whole process to you, and there is no cost to you unless we cover awards for you.

Gathering evidence

As soon as you contact us, we will work with you to gather all the necessary evidence to start building your case. The quicker we can do this, the better – by gathering evidence as soon as possible, it gives us a better chance at witnesses’ memories being sharp and physical evidence still being available and intact.

Some of the documents we will work with you to gather include:

  • Contact information of accident witnesses
  • Copy of police and accident reports
  • Copy of plaintiff’s medical records and bills
  • Evidence of lost wages and missed work due to accident
  • Traffic tickets given to the defendant

Going to trial

In most cases, car accidents are settled prior to ever going to trial. However, we are experienced litigators who are prepared for any direction the case goes. During a trial, generally witnesses will be called to the stand to give their testimony and account of what they witnessed of the accident, and the plaintiff should be prepared to answer questions and testify as well.
