The car accident checklist should be referenced when you find yourself in a car accident. It is a helpful list that will keep you on track to ensure that you have everything in line for an insurance claim or potential suit.  We suggest that you print this checklist and keep a copy in your car. This way, in the event of an car accident you can reference the list easily to help you remember all necessary items for a claim.

Make sure to note the following after a car accident:

1.   Day, date, time and location

2.   Injuries, if any

3.   Badge number of responding police officer

4.   Name & phone number of towing service

5.   Engine number of Fire & Rescue Trucks

6.   Other Driver’s name and Drivers Licenses Number

7.   Passengers’ names in the other car

8.   Make, model, year of car that hit you

9.   License plate number & state of the car that hit you

10. Insurance company & policy number of the car that hit you

11.  Write a complete description of the car accident as soon as possible

12.  Names & contact information of any witnesses – get a business card or phone number

13.  Take pictures

Al Hilado was successful in winning my very difficult case. He was very approachable the entire length of the case. It took over 2 years. He and his staff kept me up to date and whenever I had a question he was very easy to reach by phone or email. I am very grateful to him as he has helped my family tremendously. I will absolutely contact him again if I ever need help in the future.

Tom represented me for an automobile accident. He helped me get to the right specialists for medical care. I was getting no where with the insurance company regarding the damages to my car or myself. Once Tom started representing me, the ball started rolling. He was able to get me the medical care I needed, reimbursement for my automobile, and my lost wages were paid. He was always available to take my calls. I would highly recommend him.
