Sigmond has nearly 30 years experience representing injury victims, and offers six tips listed on the page.  For a comprehensive free consultation regarding your immediate situation, send us an email, fill out the contact form on this page, or give us a call.

What should I do if I've been


1) Exchange Information

Always stop the car and exchange identification and insurance information with the other driver, and write down his license plate.  Find out whether or not anybody else has been injured.

2) Call the Police

You should always call the police and make a police report.  It the police will not come to the scene of the accident, then you must go to the station to make the report.  Be courteous and polite with the police at all times.

3) Immediate Medical Attention

If you've been injured in an accident, do not delay medical evaluation and treatment.  Go to the nearest emergency room as soon as possible.  If you  ehibit symptoms of an injury shortly after the accident, get medical attention from your primary care physician or the nearest emergency room immediately upon the onset of these symptoms.

4) Call Your Insurance Co.

Always notify your own insurance company within 24 hours of an accident.  Failure to do so may allow your insurance carrier to avoid coverage.  You may need to make a claim.

5) Do Not Give a Statement

Do not speak to anyone representing the other driver's insurance company before speaking to your own lawyer.  They do not have your best interests in mind.

6) Contact Your Lawyer

You need an experienced advocate on your side.
