If you are injured in an auto accident that is not your fault you are probably facing some new issues that might be very difficult to understand. There are many things that should be done and many that should not be done. If you don’t know where to start we recommend that you seek expert advice.
But where do you start? We all see ads for attorneys on TV and on the internet but just what happens when you contact an attorney? At Anderson & Lopez we take the time to listen to your situation. If we feel that we can be of assistance we schedule an appointment to sit down with you. At that appointment or meeting we again take the time to listen to you and find out what issues you might be facing. It is always important to bring as much information with you to your meeting with the attorney. The more information you are able to bring to the meeting the better we are able to ascertain just what needs to be done. The relevant information would include the exchange of information from the accident which would include the name and address of the at-fault party as well as the name of their insurance carrier. Also important is the name and address of every doctor you have seen and any reports that you have been provided. It is also important to bring your own auto insurance policy so that we can determine whether you have any coverages that might help with medical bills while we are pursuing a claim against the at-fault party and their carrier. If you have health insurance or Medicare, Medicaid or Tricare benefits we would need you to bring your policy information. With all this information we can quickly determine how we can best assist you in obtaining care and treatment for your injuries, paying for such care and treatment and obtain compensation from the at-fault party for what you have to go through.
Usually in our initial meeting we can gather all the information we need to determine whether we can be of assistance. If we determine that we can help you we can also review the documents necessary to start legal representation immediately. Once this happens all the stress and confusion of dealing with the accident and injures goes away. At Anderson & Lopez we don’t charge you for these meetings and we only get paid when we make a recovery for you. Basically this means you never have to reach into your pocket to make a payment for our services and it never costs to sit down and discuss your case and your options. We find it extremely important to spend time face to face with our clients and listen. We have done this for over 30 years and know how to maximize your recovery and save you the stress of dealing with it on your own.
