What to do… What to consider…
When an Accident strikes.
The first and most obvious action you should take when involved in an accident is to seek medical attention from a qualified doctor. Once you’ve sought medical help, then you can consider whether you are entitled to pursue a legal claim for monetary damages based on the nature of the accident, i.e. ARE YOU ENTITLED TO MONETARY DAMAGES due to another party’s negligence.
Why hire an attorney…

| Beware of Referral firms…
In today’s hyper-competitive, over-marketed world in which we live, many ads you’ll be inundated with are from lead generation companies or other law firms who do nothing but engage you for the specific purpose of referring you and your case to another law firm for a fee. 1-800-Lawyers represent you from start to finish… period.
Who’s at fault in an accident and the effect on your ability to pursue monetary damages…
Just because you may not be 100% a victim in an accident does not mean you may still not be entitled to recover monetary damages. If you are injured and are responsible to some degree, the uninjured party is still responsible for their percentage of negligence relating to your injury.
No Fault/Case Filing Deadlines
While many states and locales have different rules and statutes relating to filing time frames, it is imperative that a victim promptly files their claim as there are deadlines which need to be complied with.
For example in certain states, a no-fault carrier must be placed on written notice within 30 days of an accident. In most cases, there are no exceptions. This means that you must submit an application for No-Fault benefits within 30 days of an accident, in order to be able to make a claim for past and future lost wages, medical bills and other expenses. In limited instances,this time frame may be extended.
As each state and certain locales have different legal guidelines, requirements, and statutes, please contact your local Firm of Excellence for accurate information relating to your specific case and area of filing for applicable information. Each Firm of Excellence is independently owned and operated and 1-800-Lawyers make no representations regarding same.
