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

I hired Mr. Al Hilado early February 2015 to pursue helping me apply for Social Security Disability benefits when I became disabled and was unable to continue workng. He has been very personable and professional. He told me how long it could take for the process and provided detailed information on what to expect. He was always available to take my calls or answer my emails. He was very supportive every step of the way and 3 months later in May I was approved for my disability. Without his help I’m sure I would still be fighting for my benefits instead of receiving my disability checks. I highly recommend Alfred Hilado.

Al Hilado is the most forthright and honest attorney I have ever dealt with – if he says he is going to do something he does it and he always kept my best interest at heart.
