Because your attorney will be there to help you every step of the way your recovery will be maximized.  Land O' Lakes residents should bring all relevant information regarding your car crash to your first appointment with your attorney.  This often includes any pictures you have taken, any police, list of witnesses, and any paperwork you have received from an insurance company.

Accident Photos and Witness Statements for Auto Accident Attorney Meeting

After your car accident, you should try to gather as much information as possible at the scene of the crash.  Document your damaged vehicle, and any other damage to vehicles or roadside objects by taking pictures.  Ger a list of all witnesses present at the scene. This may be the other drivers or people just standing around.. Make sure to a phone number and email address.  Ask them what they saw and make a note of it for future reference. Collecting this important information at the accident scene is crucial to your auto accident claim.

Tell Your Insurance Company You Have a Lawyer

Do not admit fault or give a recorded statement without first seeking help from an experienced auto accident attorney.  Remember that the insurance company wants to pay as little as possible and they are not above using dirty tricks to accomplish this goal.  Simply tell your insurance company that you need to speak to your lawyers at the auto accident injury firm of Butash Law Group first before you give any statements.  We will take care of the rest.
