When to Contact an Attorney in a Car Accident Case

Car accidents can happen at any time, without warning. When they do, the most important thing is to try to remain calm. Regardless of what kind of accident it is, the first thing to do is get medical assistance. Once that task is completed, there are some steps to take to make sure your rights are protected.

Do not move your car unless it is blocking traffic. Call the police and make a report. Take photos of the scene, including all the vehicles involved in the accident. Make note of the time of day, and the weather and road conditions at the time of the accident. If there are witnesses at the scene, get as much information as possible, including their names and contact information. Make your driver’s license and insurance information available to the driver of the other vehicle.

Once this has been done, call a personal injury attorney for assistance and representation. It is important to call as soon as possible after the accident so your memory is fresh and the attorney can assist you in gathering the information you will need when filing a claim against the responsible party. The attorneys at Jacoby & Meyers, LLP NY have the experience, skills and knowledge to handle any personal injury case. We are here to help you get justice. Call 1-877-504-5562.

Dear friends and clients,

In furtherance of our firms culture of commitment to always act with compassion, concern and commitment to our clients, community and colleagues, we have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligations while prioritizing health, wellness and safety of all we can. 

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic has introduced changes to many lives and businesses in our communities, and around the world. We, much like our neighbors and friends, have been taking precautions to ensure that we are still fulfilling our ethical and moral obligation to our clients, while also prioritizing the health, wellness and safety of our employees.

Until further notice, our offices will be closed to the public to encourage social distancing and to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Our team is still hard at work, many from home, and you may still call, email, live chat or video conference us if you or a loved one is seeking legal assistance. As the first law firm to offer our clients secure online access to their case file more than a decade ago, we have always been believers in using technology to make life easier and information more accessible. In these present times it has been a smooth transition for us to continue to offer our clients the same seamless and thorough service that you deserve and are accustomed to.

This pandemic is unlike anything any of us have faced in our lifetimes, and while we can continue to emotionally support one another through it all, staying home and keeping your distance is vital to the health and wellness of our communities. It does not feel good to break routines, cancel events and retreat from our normal, day-to-day socializing, but let us remember that, in times of strife, prior generations were asked to go to war and we are simply being asked to stay home. Your isolation equals more lives saved, and more time for medical providers to prepare for the treatment of patients battling COVID-19.

When the dust settles, we will join together with a greater appreciation for our lives, local businesses, loved ones and health. Until then, we will continue to offer guidance from a safe distance.

Very truly yours,

Andrew G. Finkelstein and the staff of Jacoby & Meyers, LLP
