FAQ – Personal Injury Accident

Personal injury attorney Joshua D. Anderson answers your most frequently asked questions
about injury accidents.

With a personal injury accident, the more information you can document, the better.

After a personal injury accident, follow these five important steps:

  1. Practice safety first: Make sure you are out of the way of other vehicles and seek treatment immediately if you have a personal injury.
  2. File an accident report. If possible, do not leave the scene until the police are contacted and a report is filed.
  3. The more information you can document, the better. Make sure to get the following facts: names and number(s) of the other driver(s) involved, witnesses, insurance companies, license plates, and make, model, and color of the vehicle. If the driver is not the one insured for a personal injury, ask for the owner’s information.
  4. Take pictures of the vehicles, the accident scene, and any visible injuries you may have. No camera? Cell phones often have cameras that can be used to document the accident.
  5. Contact a reputable accident attorney. Remember, you have rights. Call Accident Lawyer Joshua D. Anderson for a free consultation so you can learn about them.


Most personal injury accidents involve physical, financial, property and severe emotional damages. Physical damages can have life altering consequences in the life of the victim. Financial damages may include your property damage repairs, hospital and medical bills, gas consumption from your house to the doctor. Emotional damages can also extend to pain, suffering and trauma.

There is more to be said in the amount of damage that can be recovered in a persona injury case. Contact Anderson Law today. We will help you with more information about how we can help you recover damages in your case.

Yes. Unlike other fields of law, we operate on a contingency fee, which is designed to limit your out-of-pocket expenses and upfront costs. We understand that recovering your health can be incredibly taxing on your energy and pocketbook. You pay no fee unless we win.

Our contingency fee allows you to retain an attorney and pay at the end of the case based on a percentage of your total recovery. We only receive these fees when we achieve a settlement you have approved. And if you are unsure you have a valid claim, you can take advantage of our no-cost consultation service.

The best way to evaluate the viability and potential of your personal injury claim is to schedule a consultation with Anderson Law. The precise valuation of a personal injury claim can’t be determined until there has been a settlement between both parties or until a final verdict is rendered at the end of your case. However, our team can provide a realistic and honest perspective on what you may be able to recover, but this is no guarantee. Our team will evaluate many legal aspects of your case to find the best approach to obtain maximum compensation.

Do not give a recorded statement; rather, refer them to your personal injury attorney. Remember that insurance companies are not on your side. They will try to limit payouts or prevent you from getting the compensation you deserve. Fortunately, the insurance company is not allowed to speak with you directly after you have retained an attorney.

If an insurance adjuster calls you directly, simply advise him or her that you have retained an attorney. Give the adjuster our name and number. We will deal with the adjuster and allow you to concentrate on recovering your health.


You should seek for an attorney as soon as possible. The day of the accident would be best. With legal representation on your side, you can preserve evidence, identify the best doctors for you and your loved ones, find witnesses, obtain police reports and many more things.

Don’t make room for mistakes, like not taking photos of damages and injuries, giving recorded statements to your insurance company, not seeking medical treatment and other mistakes. Our team is ready to help you fight your case. Contact Anderson Law, we will provide you with more information.
