A Personal Approach To Motor Vehicle Accident Cases

Nobody ever expects to get in a car accident, which makes the aftermath particularly challenging to navigate. It can be hard to tell exactly who or what caused the accident, assess the damages or know who you need to call.

Take a deep breath. I’m here to help.

For more than 30 years, I’ve been helping Minnesotans secure the compensation they deserve after car crashes and other accidents. Give me a call at 612-504-5763 after you’ve been in an accident to learn about your rights and options at a no-obligation free consultation.

Based in White Bear Lake, I work with clients throughout the north metro area of the Twin Cities and throughout Minnesota in cases involving serious injuries resulting from all types of motor vehicle accidents, including collisions involving cars, semitrucks, motorcycles, bicyclists and pedestrians. I’ll help you navigate the claims process, negotiate with insurance companies on your behalf and, if necessary, fight hard for your interests in court. As your lawyer, I’ll be by your side every step of the way.

What To Do Immediately After A Car Accident

There are a few steps you can take immediately after an accident to make sure you have the best possible chance of getting fair compensation for your medical expenses and other damages:

  • Exchange contact and insurance information with the other driver, but do not discuss the details of the accident or admit fault.
  • Call the police so there is an official report of the incident.
  • Take your own photos of all vehicles, the scene of the accident and any visible injuries.
  • If you are injured in any way, seek medical attention, even if you are not seriously injured.
  • Report the incident to your insurance company, but consult a lawyer before giving any kind of statement or discussing a settlement.

Let’s Discuss What To Do Next

Once you’ve reported the incident to the police, call the Law Office of James R. Nethercut, P.A., at 612-504-5763, or send me an email to set up a time to discuss your next steps. Before our meeting, you may wish to review the answers to some frequently asked questions about motor vehicle accidents.
