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.

Richard and Alden, are without a doubt, a pleasure to work with. When a car accident tragically took my parents, the tragedy was multiplied by the fact that my parents cared for my mentally handicapped brother, Mike. While I was busy making new living arrangements, and dealing with estate and guardianship issues, Richard and Alden took the reins, and charged forward to protect my brother’s future.  It was critical to get Mike the largest settlement possible. Not unusual in Down Syndrome kids, Mike started to show signs of early onset Alzheimer’s during this process, causing more concern for his future wellbeing and security. This laid more financial burden on myself by causing me to take a leave of absence from work, and eventually to hire a live-in caregiver. All the while, Richard and Alden plugged away taking care of matters with minimal phone calls and visits to the office. Everything was carefully explained, and Richard was beside me, whether dealing with the insurance company, talking to annuity specialists, or dealing with my own investment bankers. In the end, the settlement was finished in a timely manner, with some money to relieve my financial burden, but more importantly, enough money to ensure that Mike can keep his current standard of living and remain financially independent well into the future. It took an enormous amount of pressure off me, and I can never thank Richard and Alden enough for all they did. For the time that I’ve known Richard and Alden, I’ve found them to be honest, reliable, hardworking, conscientious, and courteous.

I would highly recommend this firm to my family, and have in fact recommended them to a close friend.
