When you find yourself in an accident don’t let panic get the best of you. First things first, call 911 and get medical help for yourself and anyone else who is injured. Make sure to let the 911 operator know the location of the accident so they can ensure that they are sending the ambulance and police to the correct area with no delays.

When speaking to medical providers at the scene of the accident, speak to all of your injuries no matter how minor. Some injuries get worse over time. You do  not want anyone saying that you did not sustain an injury in the accident because you did not tell anyone about it.

If possible, you should take photos of the accident scene. Majority of cell phones nowadays have cameras and some have video capability.

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.


Words cannot express the professionalism you and your staff had given us in our time of need. I’m a retired law enforcement officer who was injured in the line of duty. I’m very pleased with the performance, support, professionalism and determination throughout my case. Everyone was quick to respond to my questions, available during times that most would consider after hours and always patient in explaining the details and developments of my case.
