Understanding what you need to do after a serious accident.

Comments (0)

Doing the right thing after a serious accident in D.C., Maryland or Virginia.

As one of my clients said, "I didn't plan for a hit and run driver to run me off the road on my way to work.  I didn't plan on being in the hospital and needing surgery."

No one does.

But what you do about it can make a big difference - taking the worry and uncertainty out of a complicated system, so you can focus on getting better and recovering from your injuries.

Most people don't understand how insurance companies work after a serious car accident - why would you even have thought about it.  You didn't do anything wrong.  You didn't cause the crash.  Here are just a few examples:

  • the other driver's insurance company doesn't pay your medical treatment up front, as you need it
  • you can use your health insurance to get the medical treatment you need
  • you may have additional insurance coverage on your car that can help
  • if your accident happened on the job, you may get workers comp benefits as well

Do you need a lawyer after a serious crash?

You've never had to hire a lawyer before (you've never needed one), and the whole process can be overwhelming.  Who can you trust?

Well, you've done some initial research and found our website (you didn't click on a sponsored ad - we don't do those).  So this is a good start and you're in the right place.  We've written a book to help you answer  some of the questions you have.

And because this may be keeping you up at night, we've made it available as an e-book, so it can be downloaded and sent to you electronically and you can read it in the privacy of your own home - just click on the book cover to your right.  And there is no cost or obligation to you - it's completely free.

Some people have decided they need a lawyer (and hopefully want to work with a lawyer who specializes in injury cases, one who knows the medicine) and if you are interviewing lawyers or trying to decide, we have an easy checklist of questions you should ask any lawyer you talk to.

Some people do better talking things through after a serious accident.  We get that.  So we set up times every week just to talk to people like you who have been hurt after an accident - sometimes it works best to talk about it and get answers to your specific questions.

If that's you, call to set up a time to talk.  It will be a confidential, no obligation, private conversation - and there is no charge to you. 

Just call us at (202) 393 - 3320.  Live people answer the phone and will start helping you right away.
