If you were injured in a car accident due to a distracted, negligent or drunk driver, call 402-817-2717 or 800-655-9606 to discuss your legal options with our capable legal team.

What Should I Do After A Car Accident?

Your safety is the most important thing. Seek medical attention immediately if you need it. If you are able, try to collect names, contact information, vehicle information and insurance information from the other drivers involved, as well as names and contact information of any witnesses. If the police arrive at the scene, answer their questions without assigning blame to yourself or other motorists.

Who Will Pay My Medical Bills?

The responsible driver’s insurer should pay your medical bills after an accident. However, often they delay payment or try to avoid paying altogether. If you believe an insurer is treating you unfairly, it is best to speak with a lawyer.

Do I Have To Talk To The Insurance Company?

You are legally required to cooperate with your insurance company’s investigation. However, do not speak to another driver’s insurance company without talking to an attorney. This could affect your claim and make it more difficult to secure the compensation you need.

What If I Can’t Afford An Attorney?

Because we offer no-cost representation and only collect attorney fees if we recover compensation for you, you can afford an attorney even if you are struggling because of medical bills or missed work. Because retaining a lawyer is the best way to maximize your chances of a fair verdict or settlement, you can’t afford not to hire a lawyer. Because most personal injury firms have a similar fee arrangement, it is wise to find an attorney you trust to take care of you and your case while fighting for every dollar you deserve under the law.

I cannot thank you enough for the peace of mind you have brought to my family! Both of my parents are extremely grateful for your work. I knew we were in good hands from the first meeting and you have exceeded all my expectations! It may feel straightforward to you, but to us, you have moved mountains. This settlement will allow my parents, particularly my Dad, to enjoy the rest of their lives to the fullest of their abilities. We all agree that we would give every cent back and more for my Dad to walk again, but that is not going to happen...

"...He didn't treat me like I was one of 100 clients. He treated me like I was his only client. He acted professionally but with empathy, dignity and friendliness. It didn't matter if it was something small or large, he was always there for me, be it by phone, fax, email, cellphone or meeting me personally at his office or elsewhere. He never rushed me when I didn't understand something, he'd take as much time as needed to explain things to me, especially when it came time for my deposition and in preparation for trial. He was there for me when I truly needed his help..."

"...My husband and I felt his kindness immediately and were both very impressed with his knowledge of what to expect in a wrongful death case. He pursued our claim in an aggressive manner while at the same time being very protective of our rights and privacy and sheltered us from any unnecessary contact with insurance agents, or any other adverse parties. My husband and I cannot say enough about the kindness, professionalism and legal ability demonstrated by Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deaver, Spier & Israel Law Firm, P.C., L.L.O."

"...If it were not for this law firm all I would have received from this injury would have been a loss of income check and a pat on the back, goodbye. Which only would have been a fraction of what I actually received. He was always professional but more importantly he cared about me and my family as people not just a client. He went beyond his role as my lawyer. He even spoke with my bank and explained why I was behind on my car payment. And this saved me getting my car repossessed..."
