Q: What should I do immediately after a car accident?
A: Your number one priority should be treating your injuries. Get the necessary medical treatment above all else!
Next, try to preserve evidence from the site of the crash, especially pictures! The more evidence the better. If you're not comfortable doing this, have someone do it for you.
Last, one of the most important things you can do after an accident is notify an attorney. Why? The sequence of events immediately after your crash can weigh heavily on the outcome of your claim!

Q: How will I pay for an attorney to represent me?
The automobile accident attorneys at MATSON & MATSON do not charge a retainer on personal injury cases. We only get paid if we reach a favorable verdict at trial or settle your case.
No attorney-client relationship is established until a retainer agreement is entered into.
Q: How do I know how much my case is worth?
This will depend upon many factors. Most notably, the type of injury you suffer and whether or not it will permanently affect you are the biggest factors.
Other factors include whether you had preexisting injuries, all present medical bills you have, future medical needs, the pain and suffering caused by your injury, lost income, and the possibility that your injuries could affect you for the rest of your life.
Q: How can an experienced personal injury attorney help?
If the amount of money you receive from your accident claim was determined by the insurance company, there would not be an opportunity for your and your family to plead your case.
You have a unique set of circumstances; no two accidents are alike!
By not allowing an experienced auto accident lawyer to represent you and your family, the insurance company will create its own set of merits that will severely affect your ability to receive the full compensation you truly deserve for the accident.
