Q: What should I do if I am involved in a car accident?
A: If you are involved in a car accident, the first thing you should do is check yourself and your passengers for injuries. If anyone is injured, call 911 immediately. Next, exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver involved in the accident. If possible, take pictures of the accident scene, including any damages to the vehicles and any injuries sustained. Finally, seek legal advice from a car accident attorney.
Q: How much does it cost to hire a car accident attorney?
A: Most car accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis, meaning they only get paid if you win your case. The fee is typically a percentage of the compensation you receive, which is usually around 33% to 40%. It is important to discuss fees with your attorney before hiring them.
