Personal Injury cases are always traumatic in nature. Even if your car injury is minor, you still feel its effects. When it is severe or even unfortunately results in death, you are suffering a devastating level of economic loss and emotional distress beyond the actual injury. There is no way to put a price tag on how much these injuries really cost you. The Personal Injury Attorneys at Von Magdenko & Associates will ensure that you as the victim or family of the victim receive proper compensation from the party responsible for your damages.

What do I do if I am involved in an Accident?
If You are Injured in an Accident:
Don’t delay. Seek medical & legal help right away.
If you become involved in an auto accident, a slip and fall injury, or if you have suffered injuries from any other kind of accident, you need to consult with an attorney as soon as possible. You must file your lawsuit prior to the expiration of the “statute of limitations.” If you wait too long and it expires, you will be forever barred from pursuing your claim. Act fast and seek our legal representation!
Seek our legal representation immediately. Any delay can hurt your case. Delays prevent you from gathering critical information and to interview witnesses. Some of the key details of your case may be forgotten. Generally, the longer you wait, the harder it will be to prove your case.
Waiting too long can cause your claim to be dismissed – seek our legal representation as soon as possible after your accident.
What to Do After an Accident…
Talk to all the witnesses. Get their identification and information from them right away, as it is very difficult, if not impossible, to find them once they leave the scene.
Take detailed notes about the accident right away. You may forget key elements and accounts of what happened, so make sure you write it down while it’s fresh in your mind.
Don’t talk about what happened in the accident with anyone at the scene. DO NOT discuss the accident with ANYONE until you have talked to your attorney. You need to talk to your legal counsel first. You may need to talk to the police officer, but when doing so make sure to take this advice: Make sure the investigating officer understands your description of the accident completely & accurately. Make sure the investigating officer takes notes about what you say. The responding police officer will incorporate those notes into his written report of what took place in the accident. This formal report is known as the Traffic Accident Report. The insurance adjuster will look at the report in determining whether or not to accept liability in your case.
If an “adjuster” shows up at your accident – as often happens in some cases – don’t settle with anyone on the spot. This may cost you money. Do not provide any explanation or written statement to the adjuster. The insurance adjuster works for the insurance company and not for you, and has their best interests in mind, not yours. Don’t ever take an “on the spot” settlement — there is no possible way to determine the amount of compensation you are entitled to until you have been examined by your doctor. Your doctor will look at the extent of all your injuries, your need for medical treatment or perhaps surgery. An “on the spot” settlement may limit and restrict any future treatment.
If you are injured – See a Doctor quickly! Your aches and pains may not develop until after a few days in most cases, and some injuries are not obvious. Consult with Von Magdenko & Associates and we will help you with choosing a medical doctor to provide you the service you need.
