    What Your Auto Accident Attorney Does for Your Case

    After an accident, you should get medical attention right away. It’s important to take care of yourself first of all. And your medical treatment will produce documentation for your legal claim.

    If you’re able, take multiple pictures of the damage and the accident scene. Get the license plate, and insurance and contact information for the other driver. Gather contact information for any witnesses who were passing by.

    This is the kind of work that goes into building your car accident case:

    • Investigating the accident itself
    • Talking to the witnesses
    • Collecting the medical records of your injuries
    • Collecting evidence establishing the other driver’s negligence
    • Identifying the types of damages you should receive
    • Discussing the case with insurance companies
    • Drawing up and filing documents
    • Fighting for compensation in court, if needed

    It’s best if you let your West Virginia auto accident attorney deal with insurance companies on your behalf—always with the focus on protecting your rights—rather than you talking to them directly.

    Your lawyer will take care of gathering, organizing, and presenting your information to give you the best chance at receiving financial assistance that truly helps.

    After you were wronged, let us help you get what’s right and look forward to better times.

    An experienced defective-product attorney will know what questions to ask and what evidence to gather.

    When your life has been disrupted because a device you were using failed and harmed you, getting the maximum compensation available can make a big difference for you.

    Shaffer & Shaffer personal injury lawyers can help you pursue what you need to move on with your life.
