Before you talk to the insurance adjuster or sign anything, you need the advice of a skilled lawyer. We have successfully secured compensation for injured clients, including punitive damages, medical expenses, lost wages and damages for pain and suffering. One of the first questions we are often asked is how much is may case worth, and it is impossible to give you accurate information initially without collecting much of the needed data, medical information, and insurance coverages. Every case is different, and a variety of factors determine the “monetary value” of a case.

Crucial evidence disappears quickly, so there may be a need to get investigators quickly to the scene to take photos of the vehicles, debris and your injuries. Mr. Wilkerson often talks to witnesses himself while their memories are fresh. This evidence could be critical in your case.
Importance of Seeing a Doctor
Prompt medical treatment and detailed medical reports are also critical to proving your full need for compensation. We advise clients to get immediate treatment for any injuries from a car crash. Waiting several days may create a “gap” and the insurance company may so you did not go to the doctor because you were not hurt. Insurance companies will argue that you would have gone to the doctor if you were injured. If you are hurt, immediately see a doctor. Do not attempt to go it alone and do not attempt to tough it out. If you delay, the insurance company will likely say you delayed because you were not hurt and seek to avoid paying the claim because you have a a”gap” in treatment.
We Will Tackle the Insurance Companies for You
