Next Steps

  • Contact Police - Contact the police immediately if anyone involved in the car accident has been seriously injured.
  • Identify Witnesses – Write down the names of anyone involved including motorist, witnesses, and health care professionals. If applicable, obtain a police report.
  • Seek Medical Attention – See your family physician or, if the injury is more serious, go to the emergency ward of the nearest hospital.
  • Notify Your Insurance Provider – Notify your insurance company within seven days of the accident.  Keep details to a minimum. Remember, because they are looking out for their best interest, anything you say may be used against you.
  • Notify Your Employer or School – Let your employer or school know you may be absent due to the accident.
  • Keep Records – Keep track of all your expenses and receipts, phone calls, emails and notes from healthcare providers. Do this for both you and your family members. They may also be eligible for compensation.
  • Speak to a Lawyer – Before making a claim with your insurance company, speak with a lawyer.
  • Manage Deadlines – Some claims need to be made within a specific time period. It’s imperative you speak to a lawyer sooner, rather than later.

Related Information

My name is Penny Lyn Roberts I was in a serious car accident when I was sixteen years old.

When I needed to look for a lawyer because of the accident I was in, I had heard of Richard Shekter through a few people that I knew. I interviewed him and I will say I was very happy, comfortable, and satisfied with Richard, who presented himself very well. When my case was on trial I was very nervous and unsure what to expect from the insurance company, opposing lawyers and their questions. The questions made me very uncomfortable but Richard was able to object and not have me answer certain questions or have them rephrased in a way that made me more at ease. I want to recommend Richard Shekter to anyone who is looking for an excellent lawyer. He works day and night making sure that everything is done to meet his client’s expectations.

I am very happy with the results of my case (Roberts vs. Morano) and I owe a big thank you to Richard and his staff. They all did such an amazing job. They were very nice, caring, and worked hard to make sure that I received what I deserved. Richard will not give in until his clients get what they should.
