"Accidents" is really the wrong word to describe most car crashes. That's because people often sustain a serious injury or die because someone else made a careless or reckless choice. Their negligence caused the "accident." As a result, victims often face significant medical bills, loss of wages, pain and suffering and mental anguish. They're often worried about their future. With so much at stake, it's wise to consult with an experienced lawyer. On your own, you may get less than you deserve. Understand this: Insurance companies are represented by aggressive lawyers whose primary focus is to find a reason to deny your claim.

Call the police and request that they respond to your accident. It's against the law to drive a car without insurance in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. O'Malley & Langan also can review your own insurance policy to explore your options. You may be able to recover financial compensation by making an uninsured motorist claim.
Yes. You could have a life-threatening injury, such as an internal injury or a head injury. Some injuries are not apparent immediately after an accident. Let a doctor decide whether you're healthy after your auto accident.
Yes, you will need to call your carrier to notify them that you have been in a car accident. But you should be careful what you tell them. You can stick to general facts, such as the date, time, location of the accident and the names and address of those who were involved. Do not discuss the issue of fault and don't give them any recorded statement until after you have consulted with an attorney.
In most cases, the first offer insurance companies make to accident victims does not even come close to covering the true cost of a car accident. Make sure you discuss any financial offers with an experienced auto accident attorney.
Yes. You have the power to negotiate with insurance companies after your auto accident. However, it's important to understand that the insurance company representing the other driver will likely have several attorneys working for them in an effort to keep payments to you to a minimum. That's why it's important to level the playing field by retaining an experienced lawyer.
In many cases, you can file a personal injury lawsuit to obtain compensation for your auto accident. Every accident is different, though. So, make sure you discuss the details of your case with a lawyer before deciding whether to take legal action against the insurance company or another party after your accident.
