Common Questions:

What do I do at the scene of the accident or soon thereafter?
Documentation of specifics is very crucial in these types of cases. At the scene of the accident it is important to call the police, call an ambulance, get the names and phone numbers of witnesses and depending on where the accident occurred, report the accident to the proper authority so they have knowledge that an incident occurred. It is also important to take pictures of the scene of the accident before the condition is changed or altered. When you seek medical assistance after the accident, it is important to indicate how the incident occurred.

Do I have a case?

The factors that I will look at in making my determination are “fault” and “injuries”. In these types of cases “notice” will be an issue. There are generally three types of “notice” – actual, constructive and written.


  • Actual notice means that someone else actually saw the condition prior to the incident occurring.
  • Constructive notice means that the condition was there for a long enough period of time that someone should have had noticed it.
  • Written Notice means actual written notice which is required in most cases against a Municipality.


How much will it cost me?
Personal injury attorneys all work on a contingency fee basis. This means there is no fee unless you get a recovery. There is never a fee for the initial consultation whether your case is accepted or rejected. All personal injury attorneys work on the same contingency fee basis which is one-third of the recovery. Any expenses incurred during the course of your case are paid for by myself and I get reimbursed for them at the end.
