One of the lawyers from our team is happy to schedule a free case evaluation with you. During our meeting, we can help determine your legal options.

Can’t I File a Claim on My Own?

The short answer is yes. After a car accident, you can file a personal injury claim through the other driver’s or your own car insurance company.

However, there are several good reasons for involving a well-seasoned personal injury lawyer:

  • We take on managing the entire process, which can often be confusing or complicated.
  • Insurance companies usually offer settlements that are far too low.
  • Our team knows how to negotiate for fair settlements.
  • In the event we can’t reach a fair settlement, we can take your case to trial.
  • We have experience handling a range of complicated situations, such as accidents with commercial trucks and accidents involving multiple victims.

Plus, our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis which means you only pay us a fee if we’re able to win you a settlement.

What Ladenburg Law Clients are Saying

Many past Ladenburg Law clients have given us 5-star ratings!

Consider what client Michelle O. had to say:

I was involved in my very first car accident in my entire life (with my children). I had no idea what to do. With the help of Erik Ladenburg, I was able to receive a claim that reimbursed me for all of my trouble.

And Keely W.:

I was rear ended in an accident, I ended up with a concussion and needed many months of chiropractor care and massage. The rep from the other driver’s insurance company was rude and kept telling me to pay the bills myself and then maybe they would pay me. I called John and he stepped in and took care of everything and got me a settlement and all the bills got paid. The office staff were a joy to work with and every call was returned right away.

How You Can Help Your Claim

Did you know that your actions following an accident can impact your claim? Here are a few things you can do to help your claim:

  1. Avoid providing a recorded statement to the other driver’s insurance company. One of the worst things you can do is agree to provide a recorded statement of what happened. This usually happens soon after the accident during a phone call before the full extent of your injuries is known. There is no benefit to you for sharing this information. Just decline.
  2. Keep your doctor’s appointments. While the many follow-up and treatment appointments may seem overwhelming, it’s the best way to ensure your recovery. It also provides a basis for proving the extent of your injuries and the value of your claim.
  3. Stay quiet on social media. If you have an open personal injury claim, use caution in what you post on social media. Talking about the accident or even just activities you’re up to may be discovered by the insurance company.
