**IMPORTANT TIPS: PLEASE DO NOT SKIP THIS SECTION!
- Do not sign anything without having a personal injury lawyer review it first. Doing so could jeopardize other claims you may have.
- Do not discuss the nature or extent of the injuries with an insurance adjuster (even your own) until you are certain of the full extent of the injuries.
- Seek medical treatment immediately – a gap in treatment can be harmful to your claim (if you do not have health insurance I can help get treatment that will not cost anything until the case is settled).
- If your car was damaged and needs to be repaired (or has already been repaired) you may be entitled to a check for the diminished value of your car. This is based on the reality that an automobile that has been wrecked and repaired is worth less than an automobile that has never been wrecked.
- If your accident involves a DUI driver then do NOT settle your property damage claim until you speak with me.
