Car accidents can have devastating and life-changing effects...

Common Car Accident Injuries

Negligence on the part of car manufacturers, or drivers can result in serious injury or even death. Our Longview clients often turn to us for help after sustaining a wide range of injuries including...

  • Whiplash
  • Neck strains
  • Sprains
  • Fractures
  • Disc damage or injury
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Spinal cord injury

Injuries Are Not Always Physical

In addition to the physical effects, auto accidents can produce serious psychological or emotional trauma, such as anxiety, mood swings, sleep disturbances, depression, or phobias. Many victims of car accidents experience post-traumatic effects for a year or more, which can disrupt their lives as much if not more than the physical repercussions. While pain and suffering are not often factored into settlements from insurance companies, our compassionate car accident attorneys understand that your mental health is an important aspect of your damages. We will work to get you compensation for medical bills for all aspects of your recovery

Don't Get Shortchanged Our Lawyers Pursue What Victims Are Truly Owed

The other party's insurance company wants to close the case with a minimum payout. Don't let a corporation's bottom line prevail over the justice you and your family deserve following a personal injury.

Our car accident lawyers understand the tactics the responsible party's insurance company will use after a car crash. Let our law firm handle all of these exchanges so you can focus on healing. We won't settle for anything less than what you truly deserve for your losses, and if a settlement cannot be reached, we aren't afraid to take your case to court.

There are no risks involved in consulting our law firm. We offer free consultations, and we work on a contingency basis, meaning we do not get paid unless you do. 

If anyone representing the other party tries to contact you, don't answer any questions and don't accept any settlement offers. Instead, tell them you will have your lawyer get in touch with them. It's our job to make sure that justice is served, and that the responsible party is held accountable. We're ready to go to work for you.

Greg has been an awesome attorney. Even after my case was settled, he has help get rid of debt collectors that have called & sent mail for a company that got paid when my case was settled. I highly recommend Greg. He is super nice & will take care of all the work for you. Lauralee Mueller

What to Do after an Auto Accident

After a car or truck accident, you may be at a loss for what to do. To protect yourself and the future of your car accident claim, try to follow the following steps...

Police Cooperation

Make sure to contact the police and cooperate to the best of your ability. It is important that the authorities file an official report on the accident and gather initial evidence. Keep any information from the other driver in a safe spot; you will need it in the future.

Medical Attention

Even if you are unsure about the severity of your injuries, you should still get checked by a medical professional. Beyond just the initial emergency room visit, making follow-up appointments for medical care can be extremely beneficial from both a health and a legal standpoint. You could have delayed side effects from the crash which need to be documented in your car accident claim. 

No Apologies

It is not uncommon for insurance company representatives or lawyers on behalf of the other driver to contact you for information. While anything you say has the potential to be used against you in your case, it is especially important to avoid apologizing. This kind of statement, even in passing or out of politeness may be used later as an admission of guilt. It is in your best interests to not respond and let a car accident lawyer handle all communications.

Maintaining Documentation

Keep track of all treatments, medical bills, and evidence of property damage since this information is crucial for calculating your damages. After a car accident, there is no guarantee that your insurance company will offer you a fair settlement and you need documents to prove your losses which will likely add up over time. 

Contacting a Car Accident Lawyer

Before signing any kind of settlement from your insurance, you should have the documents reviewed by a qualified car accident lawyer to ensure you are being compensated fairly. In fact, you should consider speaking with a personal injury lawyer far sooner in the process. The earlier our car accident lawyers are working on your case, the better your chances of achieving the best positive outcome.

It's never too soon for a free case evaluation. Contact our Longview firm today to protect yourself and get the support you need during this stressful time.  

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I afford a car accident lawyer?

When you choose to work with our law firm, the answer is always "yes." Often, victims worry that they cannot afford to file a personal injury claim with a car accident lawyer's help after a car accident. We do not want you to miss the opportunity to achieve justice and collect the compensation you deserve. Our lawyers work on a contingency basis, meaning we do not get paid until you do. During your free consultation, our Longview lawyers will review your case and help decide if pursuing a personal injury case will benefit you.

How long will a personal injury case take?

It is impossible to know exactly how long a personal injury case will take. There are many factors to be considered in each case, and every case is different. It could take over a year depending on how long discovery (gathering of facts by both the prosecution and defense) takes, your jurisdiction's case load, and the amount of restitution you are owed. It pays to be patient; collecting the amount of restitution you will truly need in order to rebuild your life may not be fast or simple, but refusing to settle for less than you deserve can make a significant difference in the quality of life you are able to lead going forward.

I'm unable to meet in the office. Can your law firm still help?

Yes. Our Longview lawyers want to be sure you are able to get the compensation and justice you deserve following an auto accident. Both of our injury lawyers will meet their clients anywhere, including the hospital. Our injury lawyers strive to be accessible to their clients, and pride themselves on excellent and personable communication.

If the at-fault party has offered me money to cover my medical bills and property damage, should I take it?

The only way to be sure is to speak to an attorney. Following a car crash, accident victims are most often concerned with getting their medical bills paid and getting compensated for property damage. However, it is important to look to the future. If you have an injury, it can affect you for the rest of your life, and impact your ability to live life normally. It can even affect your future wages if you miss work or can no longer work. Our Longview injury lawyers can review your case and determine the amount of restitution you truly need and deserve, and they won't settle for less.
