If you are in an accident, it is critical that you immediately seek proper medical attention. In addition to getting the care you need as soon as possible, this helps document the extent of your injuries and find injuries you may not have realized you sustained during the accident.

Before accepting a settlement offered by an insurance company, consider getting a free consultation with an McChesney & Ortwerth specializing in injury litigation.

What kind of compensation would you qualify for?

In addition to your medical expenses and the cost of repairing your car or other property damaged during the accident, you can be compensated for loss of income if you are injured in a car crash and cannot work.

You can also be compensated for your pain and suffering.  In cases where extreme recklessness or neglect can be shown on the part of the driver or even the automobile manufacturer, the court could award punitive damages.
