What should I do if I was injured in an auto accident?
The best thing you can to do help your case after an auto accident is to take pictures of the collision and write down any other useful information, such as how fast you were going, where the accident took place, who you were with, the weather conditions, and any other details or facts you can remember. It’s also important to collect information from witnesses and the other parties involved in the accident. By taking the time to take pictures and collect this information, you may have documented evidence that will greatly benefit your case.

Furthermore, after the police have arrived and given you the OK to leave the scene, it’s best to seek medical attention right away, and then contact an experienced auto accident lawyer. It’s also important to contact your insurance company as soon as possible, but refrain from making any statements until you have consulted with a lawyer.

What information should I obtain from the other people involved in the accident?

  • The full names, addresses, and phone numbers of the other people involved in the accident
  • The driver’s license numbers and plate numbers of the drivers and vehicles involved in the collision
  • The full names, addresses, and phone numbers of any passengers
  • The full names, addresses, and phone numbers of any witnesses
  • Insurance information from the other drivers involved in the accident

How much do you charge for your services?
At Leibel Law, we work on a contingency fee basis, which means we do not charge an attorney fee unless we successfully recover damages. No recovery, no fee.

How much is my claim worth?
The best way to determine how much your claim is worth is to schedule a free consultation with an attorney at our firm. It’s very difficult to determine how much your case is worth for certain without reviewing all elements of the accident. When you meet with a lawyer at our firm, we can give you a much better idea of how much your claim may be worth.

What am I entitled to recover damages for? If you were injured in an accident, you have the potential to recover damages for your medical bills, future medical bills, on-going treatment and rehabilitation, medication and any necessary adaptive equipment, property damage, lost wages, future lost wages, emotional distress, and pain and suffering.

What if I think the accident was my fault?
Even if you think the accident was your fault, it’s important not to admit guilt. After investigating the accident, it may become clear that the accident was not entirely your fault or not your fault at all.
