Auto Accidents

When it comes to an auto accident, it is important to not be swayed by anyone at the scene, including police, bystanders, passengers or anyone else involved. We advise against giving a recorded statement to anyone. At the scene of the accident, take pictures with a camera or cell phone of the automobiles, motorcycles and other vehicles or property involved, as well as any apparent injuries sustained.

Always consult a doctor immediately after the auto accident. You should always be examined for injuries, as not all injuries are as obvious as a catastrophic injury may be. Some very serious injuries from car or motorcycle accidents can appear long after the incident, and after statements have been recorded and citations issued.

Think about it; you are injured, you cannot work, and the hospital bills, mortgage payments and grocery bills keep right on going, while you are attempting to combat your pain and move forward with your life. While you are going through all of this, the insurance company keeps finding ways to not pay you, or to drastically lessen the amount you should be getting.  There may seem to be no recourse for you and no end in sight for the parade of bills that keep rolling in. The accident that injured you so seriously was not your doing, or your fault, yet the way the insurance company treats you, you feel like the worse person in the world. Is there light at the end of this tunnel? Yes, there is, and our car accident lawyers are that light. No, I am not suggesting that an attorney is an angel, but an experienced car accident lawyer knows all the tricks that the insurance companies play. They can get you the compensation that you deserve to help you get through this difficult time.

Testimonials

Mr. Hilado assisted me with my Social Security disability claim. With his help, we were able to get Social Security disability insurance on the initial go round. The process was made easy by his office. I had the results and approval back only after 2 months of Mr. Hilado submitting my motion to reconsider.

Words cannot express the professionalism you and your staff had given us in our time of need. I’m a retired law enforcement officer who was injured in the line of duty. I’m very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination throughout my case. Everyone was quick to respond to my questions, available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the details and developments of my case.
