Landover Car Accident Lawyers
Fighting for Justice for Car Accident Victims
Car accidents are unfortunate tragedies that occur far too often. From minor fender benders to major accidents, all car accidents have the potential to cause serious damage and severe injury. If you or someone you love has been involved in an accident that someone else caused, it is in your best interest to retain legal representation. Even if you do not believe that your injuries were severe enough to warrant legal action, filing a claim can help you recover the full compensation to which you are entitled.
At Ashcraft & Gerel, we represent the injured victims of car accidents in Landover and the surrounding areas. We are equipped with the experience and the resources to properly investigate the accident and ensure that the negligent party is held accountable.
What to Do after a Car Accident
First things first: Make sure you and anyone else involved in the accident are safe. Seek medical attention right away if anyone has suffered any apparent injuries.
Barring situations involving severe injuries, be sure to take detailed notes and several photos of the scene of the accident. These can help strengthen your case later on. Ask for contact information from any potential witnesses. It is also a good idea to call the police. They can create a police report and ensure that you and the other driver exchange insurance information.
We Deal with the Insurance Companies for You
Perhaps the most frustrating part of a car accident is the process of dealing with the insurance companies. Rather than try to handle things yourself, allow our Landover car accident attorneys to step in. We understand how car insurance companies operate and we know the tactics they try to pull to cheat clients out of money. Our firm can ensure that you do not accept a lowball offer or fall victim to the insurance company’s strategies.
